A stand-alone sequel , Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters , was released on August 7, Poseidon reminds him that Percy is unaware of his true identity, but Zeus declares that unless his master bolt is returned to Mount Olympus before the summer solstice, in two weeks' time, war will be waged between all the gods.

Percy is a year-old boy who appears to his peers to be dyslexic and has a unique ability to stay underwater for a long time.

While on a school field trip to the local museum , Percy is attacked by Alecto , a Fury disguised as his substitute English teacher, Mrs. Dodds, who demands the lightning bolt. Percy's best friend, Grover Underwood , and his Latin teacher, Mr. Brunner— both of whom appear disabled— help Percy and scare off Alecto. Upon learning of Alecto's reason for the attack, Mr. Brunner gives Percy a pen , claiming that it is a powerful weapon, and tells Grover to take Percy and his mother, Sally, to Camp Half-Blood, leaving behind Sally's abusive husband, Gabe Ugliano.

However, upon arriving at the camp, the three are attacked by the Minotaur , who appears to kill Sally, after she is unable to enter the camp. Grover tells Percy to use the pen that he received from Brunner, and Percy discovers it is a sword. He uses his sword to fight the Minotaur, without initial success. Percy kills the Minotaur with his own horn, then faints from shock.

Three days later, Percy wakes up in the camp. He learns he is the son of Poseidon, Grover is a disguised Satyr and his junior protector and Mr. Brunner is the Centaur , Chiron , also initially disguised.

Chiron suggests that Percy go to Mount Olympus to convince Zeus of his innocence. Percy begins training to use his demigod powers, which include water manipulation and using water to heal. Percy is visited by a fiery apparition of his uncle Hades , who reveals that Sally is with him in the Underworld and that he will return her safely if Percy hands over the lightning bolt. Defying Chiron's orders, Percy decides to go to the Underworld believing if he can convince Hades of his innocence, Hades will release his mother, joined by Grover and Annabeth.

They visit Luke, who gives them a map showing the location of three green pearls belonging to Hades' wife, Persephone , which they can use to escape the Underworld by stepping on them. They are also given a pair of flying Converse All-Star shoes which Luke stole from his father, and a shield , which Luke describes as his favorite.

The trio heads out, and start by searching for the first pearl at the old, abandoned Auntie Em 's Garden Emporium in Leeds Point , which turns out to be the lair of Medusa , who tries to kill them until Percy decapitates her with his sword from behind; they take her head with them for later use, along with locating the pearl on a bracelet , which she has been wearing on her wrist.

They locate the second pearl in the Parthenon in Nashville ; Percy uses the flying shoes to take it from the crown of the reproduction Athena Parthenos statue. However, they are then confronted by the Hydra , disguised as the janitors , which Grover turns to stone using Medusa's head. The last pearl is searched for at the Lotus Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas modeled from Caesars Palace but with a Greek theme instead of a Roman theme , where, at the casino's cocktail waitress ' offer, the three sample the casino's signature dish, lotus flowers , which make them forget their reason for being there.

They stay in the casino for five days until Poseidon abruptly speaks in Percy's mind, helping Percy return to his senses. Percy frees Grover and Annabeth from the effects of the flowers, and after locating the pearl on a roulette wheel being used as the roulette ball , they escape by stealing a winnable Maserati.

As they leave, Annabeth realizes that the casino is actually the lair of the Lotus-Eaters , and they have been luring people into their trap and keeping them captive since ancient times, which explains why the casino's motto is "You will never want to leave. In the Underworld, they meet Hades and Persephone. Though Percy tells Hades that he does not have the lightning bolt, Hades finds it hidden inside Luke's shield, revealing that Luke is the lightning thief.

However, instead of allowing Percy, Sally, Grover, and Annabeth to go free, Hades, being the heartless jerk that he is, cruelly goes back on the deal and has Persephone feed the group to the souls by using magic to open gates which lets the souls in, and summoning the hellhounds to chase the group into the gates.

Persephone proceeds to do so, but then suddenly knocks Hades unconscious by tasing him with the lightning bolt to get her revenge on him for imprisoning her for all eternity, intervenes by closing the gates to the souls and commanding the hounds to leave, and then hands the bolt to Percy. However, because they only have three pearls, Grover remains with Persephone to allow Percy's mother to leave. Percy, Annabeth, and Sally teleport to the Empire State Building, but before they can enter Mount Olympus, they are ambushed by Luke, who reveals that the reason for him stealing the bolt is that he wants to destroy Mount Olympus to secure the demigods' place as the new rulers of Western Civilization.

After a fight across Manhattan, Percy defeats and apparently kills Luke and returns the lightning bolt to Zeus, who forgives Percy and allows Poseidon to briefly speak with his son.

The film ends with Percy and Annabeth reuniting with Grover, furloughed from the Underworld and sporting a new pair of small horns that designate his promotion to Percy's senior protector. Percy and Annabeth are reunited, and they nearly kiss but Annabeth tricks Percy and they continue to train. In the mid-credits scene , Ugliano is kicked out of the apartment by Sally. He decides to get a beer on his way out, but finds a note from Percy saying that he should not open the refrigerator under any circumstance.

He breaks the lock anyway and is turned to stone and killed by Medusa's head inside, on the shelf. One of her snakes blurs the screen, revealing the movie's end. The sound of Ugliano turning to stone is heard while the screen is black. In June , 20th Century Fox acquired feature film rights to the book.
