After a summer spent trying to prevent a catastrophic war among the Greek gods, Percy Jackson is finding his seventh-grade school year unnervingly quiet. His biggest problem is dealing with his new friend, Tyson, a six-foot-three, mentally challenged homeless kid who follows Percy everywhere, making it hard for Percy to have any normal friends. But things don't stay quiet for long.
Percy soon discovers there is trouble at Camp
Half-Blood: the magical borders that protect Half-Blood Hill have been
poisoned by a mysterious enemy, and the only safe haven for demigods is
on the verge of being overrun by mythological monsters. To save the
camp, Percy needs the help of his best friend, Grover, who has been
taken prisoner on an island somewhere in the Sea of Monsters, the
dangerous waters Greek heroes have sailed for millennia. Only today, the
Sea of Monsters goes by a new name: The Bermuda Triangle.
with his friends, Percy must retrieve the Golden Fleece from the Island
of the Cyclopes or Camp Half-Blood will be destroyed. But first, Percy
will learn a stunning new secret about his family, one that makes him
question whether being claimed as Poseidon's son is an honor or simply a
cruel joke. From Goodreads.
I will continue this series as I find the adventure mixed with the Greek Gods interesting and in this one I like Percy's new brother.
