A man ought to read just as inclination leads him, for what he reads as a task will do him little good.

Percy Jackson & the Olympians

Percy Jackson is a demigod, which means "half-god". His mom is human but his dad is Poseidon, the ancient Greek god of the sea. Once he finds this out, his already difficult life turns even more upside down (if that's even possible)! This well-structured series takes Percy through his early teens as he deals with monsters, Titans (they were the "big bads" before the Greek gods were created), and girlfriends! Scary! Good adventure and clever use of the old Greek myths in a modern setting. Return to Series Index
