When Percy Jackson finds out that he is the son of a Greek God, he is immediately sent to Camp Half-blood, a camp for demigods! He meets a few new friends including: Luke, son of Hermes, and Annabeth, daughter of Athena. But when one of the Big Three (Hades, Poseidon and Zeus) claim him as their son, Percy gets wrongly accused of stealing Zeus’ master bolt!! Zeus’ master bolt is what starts all thunderstorms and is a colossal cylinder of electric power! But with Hades’ warrior guards (the Furies) trying to exterminate them at their very move and constant warnings from strange creatures, Percy and his friends are swept up into a world of treason and deadly secrets where nothing is at as it seems…

I really like this book because it is written in a very sarcastic way and it’s very funny. I think that this is probably the best book I’ve ever read! I think that the description is very good and it really helps you imagine what it is like. I would recommend reading the whole series first then watching the films because it might spoil how you imagine Percy and his friends and the gods look like. I wasn’t a very big fan of reading before I read this but now I am addicted to the series. If someone asked me to pick a book, I would instantly dive for Percy Jackson. The books in the series are:

I hope you like them!

I’m a teenager (and a Hufflepuff) from Manchester. I like oversized jumpers, music that isn't on the radio anymore and books. Pretty much any book I can get my hands on but my favourites are Young Adult, fantasy and science fiction. One day, I decided to share some of my opinions on some great - and not so great - books to people around the world. And here it is! I really enjoy it and I hope you do too. The aim is hundreds and thousands of book reviews (see what I did there?) but I’m not quite up to that. Yet.
