Destruction In Percy Jackson's The Sea Of Monsters

Better Essays
Have you ever heard the story of the Bermuda Triangle, and how all boats that sail through it mysteriously disappear? Now imagine the reason all of those boats have been disappearing is because anyone who ventures through the deep sea is both lured and attacked by horrid monsters. Will Percy Jackson succeed in his quest like before, or will he fall another victim to the unrelenting area known as the Sea of Monsters? Though Percy Jackson, the half blood son of Poseidon, had once saved the world from destruction, lately he has been feeling less heroic. He has not had an encounter with a single monster the past entire year. However, all of this changes when the enchanted borders that protect Camp Half Blood are dissolving. As a result, hordes …show more content…
Through several facts and clues in the novel I believe the next part of the story will be about the retrieval of the Golden Fleece. I predict that Luke, the son of Hermes, will come and take the Magical Fleece after Percy and his friends have retrieved it from the island where the Cyclops lives. One of the reasons why I assume this to be true is because throughout his quest, Percy had felt like there was an evil presence skulking in the shadows and following his every move. Another reason that led me to this assumption was how when Percy and his friends escaped the boat that Luke had been entrapping them on; they felt as if he almost wanted them to. To support this further, Annabeth even said, “What we overheard him say about a gamble, and they’ll take the bait…I think he was talking about us”(Riordan 140). This may lead one to believe that Luke was hoping that Percy and his friends would do all of the hard work and then he could steal it from them. Finally, when Percy and Annabeth pulled up to the island of the Cyclops, Percy could have swore he saw another boat floating into the bay just as they were going over the peak of the hill. Consequently, Percy and his friends are in even more danger than they had previously planned for in the upcoming part of the novel. Additionally, another prediction that I have come up with for the upcoming portion of the novel is how the lord of the titans, Kronos, will be rebuilt and come to life at some point in the story. There are several hints and clues that have led me to this assumption. One of the first came while Percy and his friends were entrapped on Luke’s boat. Luke pointed to a gold sarcophagus and said, “He is reforming. Little by little, we’re calling his life force out of the pit”(Riordan 130). This may lead one to believe that what is inside the coffin must be something of true

    BOOK REPORT I think the title “City of Ember” is good because it is telling a city being underground . Ember means a glowing light that lights up and starts to dies out. An ember can also be the same thing but in buildings when they turn on the lights it is like an ember. Because the city is underground ,it is very dark. They need electricity to light up the city. An other title for the book can be “Sunless city”could be another title because the city does not have any light from the…
