Percy Jackson and the Olympians
One day after returning home from his boarding school, Percy and his mother Sally Jackson, travel to a beach in Montauk. After a series of harrowing incidents, Percy finds out that he is a demigod son of Poseidon and that the gods are accusing him of stealing Zeus' master lightning bolt. To clear his name and save the world from another war between the Olympian gods, he sets out to find the real thief and retrieve the lightning bolt. Thus Percy Jackson and his companions, a satyr named Grover Underwood and Annabeth Chase, a daughter of Athena, start on a journey to the underworld, facing numerous mythological monsters on the way.
Percy Jackson's Gods and Godesses
This is a book about the gods and godesses of greek mythology. Narrated by Percy Jackson, it gives his unique (and funny) take on what he thinks of the twelve Olympian gods, "plus a few bonus gods, like Persephone and Hades!" While enjoyable, it is also very informative on many greek myths.
By Rick Riordan.
