The Lightening Thief – Rick Riordan

lightening thief

What if the gods of Olympus were alive in the 21st Century? What if they still fell in love with mortals and had children who might become great heroes — like Theseus, Jason and Hercules?

What if you were one of those children?

Such is the discovery that launches twelve-year-old Percy Jackson on the most dangerous quest of his life.  With the help of a satyr and a daughter of Athena.  Percy must journey across the United States to catch a thief who has stolen the original weapon of mass destruction – Zeus’ master bolt.  Along the way, he must face a host of mythological enemies determined to stop him.  Most of all, he must come to terms with a father he has never known, and an Oracle that has warned him of betrayal by a friend.

This is SUCH a great book — especially if you love adventures and/or Greek mythology.  As he travels cross country looking for Zeus’ lightening bolt, Percy must battle mythological monsters, time traps, and learning that his dad is the King of the Sea.  Nothing is as it seems when you are a demigod – but it makes for amazing adventures!  ~ Leila, Teen Clerk
