Percy Jackson Book Series
By Fabien. On October 6, In Reading Guide. One day, after being attacked by a Minotaur, Percy discovered that he is a demigod, the son of Poseidon, the Greek god of the sea. His life changes completely as he finds himself at Camp Half-Blood, a training camp for demigods like him. So, here is a way to go.
Twelve-year-old Percy Jackson is on the most dangerous quest of his life. Along the way, he must face a host of mythological enemies determined to stop him. Most of all, he must come to terms with a father he has never known, and an Oracle that has warned him of betrayal by a friend. Now Percy and his friends have just days to find the only magic item powerful to save the camp before it is overrun by monsters. The catch: they must sail into the Sea of Monsters to find it. Along the way, Percy must stage a daring rescue operation to save his old friend Grover, and he learns a terrible secret about his own family, which makes him question whether being the son of Poseidon is an honor or a curse. When Percy Jackson gets an urgent distress call from his friend Grover, he immediately prepares for battle.

An adaptation of the second book, titled Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters , was released in When Rick Riordan ran out of myths, his son suggested that he would make up new stories using existing mythological characters and new ones. This led Riordan to create the fictional character of Percy Jackson and create the story of how he travels across the United States to recover Zeus ' lightning-bolt. Haley suggested that he should turn that story into a book, and Riordan wrote the book over the next year despite being busy at that time. Leaving his manuscript with his agent and editor for review, Rick Jordan presented the book to a group of 6th , 7th , and 8th graders to read and critique. He gained their approval, and with their help, came up with the name of the book and created the way Percy's sword works.
