|Percy Jackson|

Today I thought I would tell you about a book series I have just finished reading. Its called PERCY JACKSON AND THE OLYMPIANS.

Here is the blurb of THE LIGHTNING THIEF (BOOK ONE)

PERCY JACKSON is about to be kicked out of boarding school….again. And that’s the least of his troubles. Lately, mythological monsters and the gods of Mount Olympus seem to be walking out of the pages of Percy’s Greek mythology text book and into his life. And worse, he’s angered a few of them.  Zeus’s master lightning bolt has been stolen and Percy is the prime suspect.
Now Percy and his friends have just 10 days to find and return Zeus’s stolen property and bring peace to a warring Mount Olympus. But to succeed on his quest, Percy will have to do more than catch the true thief: he must come to terms with the father who abandoned him; solve the riddle of the Oracle, which warns him of betrayal by a friend; and unravel a treachery more powerful than the gods themselves

Here is just an intro to Ancient Greek mythology:
ZEUS god of the sky
POSIDON god of the sea
HADES god of the dead
HERA goddess of marriage
DEMETER goddess of agriculture
ARES god of war
ATHENA goddess of wisdom war and useful arts
APOLLO god of archery, music, poetry, the prophecy, medicine and the sun (wow)
ARTEMIS the god of the moon, hunting and young woman
HEPHAESTUS god of blacksmiths and fire
APHRODITE goddess of love and beauty
HERMES god of travelers, roadways, merchants and thiefs
DIONISUS god of wine

There are many more monsters and minor gods that I have not mentioned here. (Capitals was absolutely necessary otherwise I might get blown out of the sky)
These are really good books and I hope you enjoy them if you decide to read them.
I love these books so much I read 1.5 of them last year and then the rest up to book 5 in the school holidays. I just couldn’t put them down!
