I first read The Lighting Thief and I loved it. I loved it so much my grandma(nana) got me the whole series. This series has adventure,a little romance(it’s ok for younger children), and is about how one family has to save the world and stil wait to relax.
Percy Jackson is a half-blood which means he’s half god and half human. Percy’s father is Posidon, god of water, he’s mother sara on the other hand is mortal but has a very good eye sight. She can see through the mist that separates the moster actual form from what they think. Sara can see the monsters from Percy’s point of view and wants him to be safe no matter what.percy is a only child but since his father is one of the big three he has to destroy Kronos before he destroys Olympus. Posidon,the god of water, Zeus, the god of the sky, and Hades, the god of the underworld made a pact to never have children after world war II because they didn’t want to seethe destruction it would have caused, and when Percy found out he was a child of the big three he was startled.Read the book to find out more.
