Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief A Review

Percy Jackson is like and young teenager living in New York, other than for the fact that his father is the Greek God, Poseidon. Becoming the son of the lord of the ocean and of earthquakes has some fantastic benefits, like the capability to manipulate and manage drinking water. The downside of this is that because he has come of age his is now a prime target for the enemies of Greek Gods, namely any monster from Greek Mythology that you can consider of. And they are all fairly scary.Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan is the first in a sequence of 5 publications called Percy Jackson and the Olympians. It centers close to Percy and his discovery that he is a fifty percent-blood, or demigod, the son of a human and a god. He discovers that there are other folks that reveal this trait and they gather jointly in a location known as Camp 50 percent Blood.Percy meets with fellow demigods, centaurs, satyrs and other really-a lot-alive creatures of Ancient Greek Myth and evenmanages to rub shoulders with a number of gods and a rather intimidating prophecy. Soon after he arrives at Camp Fifty percent-Blood even so items start to fall apart. Percy is accused of stealing the God Zeus' grasp lightning bolt. Right after he proclaims his innocence his is offered ten days to prove it and return the bolt to Mount Olympus.Like any very first book in an ongoing sequence, The Lightning Thief has to not only have a persuasive story, but it ought to also set up the characters and more importantly the globe which the characters inhabit as engaging and finally convincing. Riordan does so deftly.The premise that Greek Gods are alive (so to communicate) and residing in New York Metropolis, is delivered with fantastic conviction and pacing. The story concludes wonderfully, providing a whiplash ending which will not only get youthful viewers back again for more but perhaps also get them interested in the mythology behind the tale.A very advised read for tweens, teens and adult readers. The movie adaptation arrives out early February so examine that out also.\nRelated Sites : lord of the ocean
