This series is about a young boy named Percy who finds out that the Greek gods and goddesses are real, and that he is the son of Poseidon, the sea god. Percy is sent to Camp Half Blood, a camp for "demigods" (as Percy is called) and meets many new friends and has lots of adventures. I really liked this book because it was interesting and kept my attention. It is well written, and the reader feels connected to the characters. I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in Greek gods and goddesses, in particular, or anyone who likes a good adventure story.
