Half boy. Half God. All Hero.
Look, I didn't want to be a half-blood. I never asked to be the son of a Greek God.
I was just a normal kid, going to school, playing basketball, skateboarding. The usual. Until I accidentally vaporized my maths teacher. Now I spend my time battling monsters and generally trying to stay alive.
This is the one where Zeus, God of the Sky, thinks I've stolen his lightning bolt - and making Zeus angry is a very bad idea.

Percy Jackson was just a normal kid; well, that was until he accidentally vaporised his maths teacher. That's when things got weird. Now he spends his time at Camp Half-Blood; fighting monsters, going on epic quests, and generally just trying to stay alive. This is important, because he has found out he is the son of Poseidon, that's right, the ancient Greek God. Perfect for lovers of fantasy, this series is my Achilles Heel, and I’m sure it'll be yours as well. - Zoe (QBD)
