Percy Jackson and the Olympians

by Rick Riordan Year Published: 2005-present


Percy Jackson is having a rough go of it.  At 12, he’s been kicked out of multiple schools, and faces a lot of challenges. Those all seem small when he’s attacked by Gorgons, Furies, and Minotaurs.  Turns out Percy is a demigod, the son of Poseidon and a mortal woman (his mom).  The first book in the series, Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief is having a resurgence because the newest book is coming out on Tuesday, September 26th, and Disney+ is releasing season one of Percy Jackson and the Olympians on December 20th (Here’s the trailer.)
