Percy Jackson and the Olympians is the best series. It’s about this teen, Percy Jackson, finding out that he is a demigod. A demigod, or half-blood, is a human who is half god.

The Lightning Thief was about a boy named Percy Jackson who found out he was a half-blood and the son of Poseidon, rule of the seas. He and his friends Grover and Annabeth have to return Zeus’ stolen lightning rod. Along the way they fight the Kindly Ones and many other monsters. At Camp Half-Blood, Percy recognizes Mr. Brunner as Chiron. I really liked this book and I will continue to read this series.

Percy has found out he is half-god and his father is Poseidon. He must find Zeus’ Master Thunderbolt before it’s too late to clear his name. He must travel to the Underworld, confront Hades, and save his mother.

I liked it because there’s a lot of action and surprising twists. I also like the Greek mythology and how it’s tied in with everything else.

The Lightning Thief is about a boy named Percy Jackson whose dad is a Greek god and whose mom is normal, which makes him a half-blood.  Being a half-blood gives him powers and puts him in danger throughout the book.  I liked how adventurous this book is and how it involves a little bit of history.
