Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightening Thief
I was just a normal kid, I went to school (got expelled a lot, but that wasn't my fault), played sports and hung out with my best friend.
Until I accidentally vaporized my maths teacher.
Now, I spend my time at Camp Half Blood, battling monsters and generally trying to stay alive.
And now that Zeus thinks I've stolen his lightning bolt, staying alive is going to be even harder...
Percy Jackson: The Sea of Monsters
I look like a normal kid. Only there's a difference. Poseidon, God of the Sea is my dad. Which sounds cool, but actually means there is usually someone (or something), somewhere, trying to kill me.
Now I live at Camp Half-Blood, with other kids like me. But Camp Half-Blood is a bit different to most summer camps. Instead of toasting marshmallows and singing campfire songs, we battle giant cannibals at dodgeball.
This time, we're under attack, and I need to get my hands on the Golden Fleece or we'll be invaded by monsters. Big ones.
Percy Jackson: The Titan's Curse
Half boy. Half God. ALL Hero.
Normalcy has just gone out the window. My friend Annabeth is missing, a Goddess is in chains, and only five of us can join the quest to save the day.
Oh and guess what. The Oracle has predicted that not all of us will survive...
Percy Jackson: The Battle of the Labyrinth
Being the son of a Greek God, nothing in my life has been straightforward. Or monster-free.
And it looks like that's not going to change anytime soon now that my arch enemy Luke wants to invade Camp Half-Blood via an ancient labyrinth.
If he succeeds, thousands of bloodthirsty monsters will attack. So it's goodbye sunshine, hello darkness as four of us descend into the terrifying underground and beyond . . .
Percy Jackson: The Last Olympian
Normally when you turn sixteen you get a really cool present.
But, being sixteen and the son of Poseidon can never be that simple. So instead, I get a prophecy that says the fate of the entire world on my shoulders. Great.
On top of that, Kronos, Lord of the Titans, is attacking New York City and the dreaded monster Typhon is heading our way. So, it's me and forty of my demi-god friends versus untold evil.
Happy birthday to me!
