Percy Jackson, hero and demi-god, is the best guide you could have to the Greek gods and goddesses. As he is half-god - his father is Poseidon - and half-mortal – he is also a schoolboy in Manhattan - Percy is perfectly placed to give the inside stories! Percy’s account of the lives of the gods is chatty and informal. They are near to humans as you’ll ever find them – but they still have some awesome powers! A fun and fantastic introduction to an extraordinary world.
If you like horror shows, bloodbaths, lying, stealing, backstabbing and cannibalism, then read on... . Who could tell the true stories of the gods and goddesses of Olympus better than modern-day demigod Percy Jackson?
In this action-packed tour of Greek mythology, Percy gives his hilarious personal views on the feuds, fights and love affairs of the Olympians. Want to know how Zeus came to be top god? How many times Kronos ate one of his own kids[unk] How Athena literally burst out of another god's head? It's all here in black and white...
Featuring an exclusive bonus chapter from The Blood of Olympus, the fifth and final book in the Heroes of Olympus series also written by Rick Riordan.
