Publisher's Summary

After a summer spent trying to prevent a catastrophic war among the Greek gods, Percy Jackson finds 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.

Rick Riordan's second book in the Olympus series is quite good, but is not as entertaining as the first book. However, much like JK Rowling, his second book seems to be a spring-board for upcoming books in the series: Events that transpire in book 2 will likely be relevant in later books in the series. I look forward to "The Titan's Curse".

great family fare

My 11 and 9-year-old kids (a boy and a girl) have really enjoyed this series and I have gotten caught up in it too. The story is fun and engaging. There are a series of battles and challenges and plenty of suspense, but it is all laced with humor. The books have also gotten my kids very interested in learning about Greek mythology-- bonus! The reader is pretty good with voices and does a convincing teenage narrator. I'm glad they've chosen to go with the same reader for both books in the series so far and hope they continue. The first book in the series is called the Lightening Thief.
