Summary

One year after the events of "The Lightning Thief", Percy and his friends Annabeth Chase and Tyson deal with problems that threaten the the survival of Camp Half-Blood. When Thalia's tree is poisoned, the magical borders that surround the camp begin to fade. And nobody knows who truly poisoned it, and the threat of Kronos looms distantly. Then when Grover is trapped on an island in the Sea of Monsters, the trio must have to sneak out of camp to rescue him and obtain the Golden Fleece to save Thalia's tree. Will they return in time, and in One .... PIECE?

Type of Conflict

The conflict for the book is man vs. man, because much of the plot is focused on retrieving Grover and the Golden Fleece from Polyphemus, a cyclops. And the threat of the titan lord, Kronos, and the demigod traitor, Luke, is always looming.
