Some people find their routes through family stories and heirlooms, others discover their history through Genealogy websites.
Percy Jackson found out he was part-Greek god by having monsters attack him on a school field trip!
Percy Jackson is a fun YA story about a boy who’s descended from Poseidon, one of the ancient Greek Gods.
In the first book, Percy has to deal with the sudden realisation of this discovery as well as being framed for theft of Zeus’ lightning bolt, an act that if not fixed swiftly could see the three powerhouse Gods; Zeus, Poseidon and Hades going to war! Something that could spell disaster for the world.
It’s a great hero’s journey story which went on to span a much loved series and multiple follow on books by Rick Riordan.
This series is more than a simple flash in the pan.
I will be back soon with another book to review soon!
