Staff Reviews

Summer Camps can be brutal places that teach you a little about yourself, but for Percy waking up in a summer camp after watching his mother get dragged to the Underworld, killing his teacher who turned out to be a monster, and a minatour has shown him one thing. The Old Gods are real and they still watch from up high in Olympus. Someone has stolen Zeus' thunderbot and hidden it deep in the Underworld and a war is brewing. Percy, his best friend Grover, and Annabeth a daughter of Athena are all sent on a journey to prevent war by finding the bolt and returning it to it's rightful place. All while something even more ancient than the gods uses one of their own for it's own purposes.

— Peter S.


Classic Greek mythology is mixed with modern adventure in this brand-new, action-packed series. After learning he is a demigod, Percy Jackson is sent to a summer camp on Long Island, where he meets the father he never knew--Poseidon, God of the Sea.
