Half Greek god. All-round legend! Percy’s battling monsters and saving the world (in between homework assignments). Newsflash: the Greek gods are alive! And so are all your scariest nightmares. ‘Troubled’ New York teenager Percy Jackson is used to bullies and angry teachers. But when he discovers he’s the son of Poseidon, he finds himself facing real-life monsters. Now he’s being packed off to Half-Blood Hill, the Long Island camp where the offspring of Greek gods are trained. But battling legendary monsters is only part of the timetable. Saving the world is the other part…

  • Rick Riordan’s bestselling and hugely acclaimed series
  • Percy is a fantastic hero – a dyslexic modern demigod
  • Bursting with action, battles, monsters and humour
  • A funny, original and thrilling take on Greek myths

    I really like this book because it's mysterious and exiting. I have only read a few pages but I still like it I think the author
    should make some more books for children to read. You feel tense when Percy get's into a fight with some weird monster.

    I hate rick riordan.He just literally copied J.K Rowling.e.g. Harry potter and the half blood prince rick Riordan wrote Percy Jackson and the half – blood hill.He also kind of copied the fourth harry potter book so yeah.Shame on you, Rick Riordan.

    Rick riordan is the best writer ever! Adventurous as well as funny. I am surprised that Rick riordan actually wrote the actual myth by putting it into real world. Just find it out in Wikipedia

    If you love fantasy and Greek mythology you will, for certain, not be able to put these books down. You will fall in love with characters like Percy, Annabeth and Nico and at times sympathize with Greek Gods like Artemis and Hestia. You will start to dislike characters like Luke and then realise that they are actually not that bad, just slaves of their own destinies. This is a roller coaster of a book and is sure to satisfy the tastes of everyone. 5 out of 5!

    I secretly have a huge crush crush on Percy Jackson! I am addicted to Ancient Greece mythology, it’s so interesting (that’s why I love the BBC1 show Atlantis). The Lost Hero is definitely going on my Christmas Wishlist along with some of Rick’s other books.
