Percy Jackson and Annabeth find out the borders of Camp Half-Blood are no longer safe and that someone has poisoned Thalia’s tree. Also, Grover is in trouble and needs help. Percy, Annabeth, Clarisse, and Percy’s new brother, Tyson, must try to save Grover and capture the Fleece in order to save Camp Half-Blood. I liked this whole book very much!

There are problems at Camp Half-Blood and Percy and his Cyclopes friend wind up there and want to fix them. They go on a perilous journey to fix Camp Half-Blood.  I liked how this story incorporated Greek myths. I liked the action and the unexpected twists in the plot. I disliked how somehow they managed to work things out.

PRecy needs to get the Golden Fleece in order to save Thalia’s tree to protect Camp Half-Blood. He goes on a perilous journey to get it with Tyson and Annabeth. They succeed, but Kronos is getting stronger.  I liked this book because it was full of action from the beginning and it had a lot of surprises. Some parts were predictable and some parts were unpredictable.

There is also poetry in this book.

In this book Percy Jackson had been getting dream messages from Grover, because he was pretending to be a woman Cyclops so Polyphemus does not eat him, then Percy comes to the camp to realize that Thalia’s tree has been poisoned and he needs to steal the Golden Fleece – to heal the camp – and rescue Grover from Polyphemus.  Instead the quest is given to Clarisse.  Percy goes anyway and finds out that Luke poisoned Thalia’s tree and is planning to steal the Fleece from Percy to bring Kronos – the Titan lord – back.  Percy gets Grover and the Fleece, but insists that Clarisse brings the Fleece to the camp since it was her quest.  The Fleece works too well and brings Thalia to life again.  I loved the book because it had action, mythology, mystery, and brotherly love.  Also, because the characters always win a battle in the story – in the most uncommay ways to do so.
