Waterstones Says

The first adventure for Percy Jackson sets the reluctant hero a ten-day deadline to find the true snatcher of Zeus' legendary lightning bolt in Riordan's page-turning, myth-packed tale.

The first book in the bestselling Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. Now with a new cover look, read the story that launched Percy Jackson into the stratosphere, before the Disney+ series comes out!

Half boy, half god, all hero.

Look, I never asked to be the son of a Greek god. I was just a normal kid. . . until I accidentally vaporized my maths teacher.

Percy Jackson is having a bad week. His life has gone from totally normal to monsters-from-Greek-mythology-randomly-appearing kind of strange. Worse still, the king of the gods thinks Percy has stolen his all-powerful lightning bolt - and it seems making Zeus angry is a very bad idea.

Now Percy and his friends have just ten days to catch the true lightning thief and stop all-out war from erupting on Mount Olympus. What could possible go wrong?

I loved it! The best book in the series is the second book, but this one is second best.
I liked the story line, Camp Half-Blood and everything else. In fact, I can't think of anything I didn't like about... More

“a fast-paced adventure for young readers”

This is a clever and original concept, and I love the idea of bringing the ancient gods to the 21st Century USA. There is a strong cast of characters from the sometimes-too-brave Percy, to the slightly arrogant but... More
