TBR Thursday: The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan

I’ve been meaning to read this series for a long time, given my love for Greek mythology and my actual writing of a serial also set in the modern world. I didn’t do the movie because ehhh, but I’d love a shot at the book.

The Lightning Thief

Percy Jackson is a good kid, but he can’t seem to focus on his schoolwork or control his temper. And lately, being away at boarding school is only getting worseβ€”Percy could have sworn his pre-algebra teacher turned into a monster and tried to kill him. When Percy’s mom finds out, she knows it’s time that he knew the truth about where he came from, and that he go to the one place he’ll be safe. She sends Percy to Camp Half Blood, a summer camp for demigods (on Long Island), where he learns that the father he never knew is Poseidon, God of the Sea. Soon a mystery unfolds and together with his friendsβ€”one a satyr and the other the demigod daughter of Athenaβ€”Percy sets out on a quest across the United States to reach the gates of the Underworld (located in a recording studio in Hollywood) and prevent a catastrophic war between the gods.
