The Sea of Monsters (Percy Jackson and the Olympians)

In honor of the upcoming movie debut here is the official trailer (that makes me so excited) and a short review on Rick Riordan's, The Sea of Monsters (Percy Jackson and the Olympians).  

Join Hero, Percy Jackson, son of Poseidon, on a new adventure to save camp Half Blood from impending monsters and danger when the magical borders are weakened by a mysterious poisoning and the only hope is to recover the famed Golden Fleece from the Island of the Cyclopes, which also happens to be the location where Satyr pal, Grover is being held captive to be married to the terrible Cyclops, Polyphemus.  Percy's quest takes him to The Sea of Monsters, otherwise known as the Bermuda Triangle where he, Annabeth and cyclops friend Tyson must save their friend Grover, overcome monsters and and survive some legendary dangers.  Will they be able to save  their beloved Camp Half Blood?  Can Tyson really be trusted?  Can they save Grover before he becomes dinner?

Rick Riordan does an amazing job with The Sea of Monsters.  His characters are exciting and believable and he is continually impressing me with his excellent writing style as he weaves in adventure, classic mythology and humor.
