Currently Reading: Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Sea of Monsters

Title: Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Sea of Monsters (Amazon, Wikipedia)
Author: Rick Riordan (Official, Blog, Wikipedia)

The Sea of Monsters is a myth-based urban fantasy and the second book in the Percy Jackson & the Olympians series. The series follows the adventures of Percy Jackson, who is a demigod—the son of Poseidon, and his friends.

I’m not very far into the book yet but so far it picks about a year after The Lightning Thief left off. What I really enjoy about this series is Riordan’s mixing of Greek mythology with modern urban fantasy. One of these days I’m going to do a post on the myth-based fantasy genre.

I've never read any of the books in this series but they are big sellers at the bookstore where I work. May just have to try out the first book. Thanks for the review.

I’d recommend reading at least the first one. The books are fun and pretty fast reads.
