Mythological monsters and the gods of Mount Olympus seem to be walking out of the pages of twelve-year-old Percy Jackson's textbooks and into his life. Series creator Rick Riordan joins forces with some of the biggest names in the comic book industry to tell the story of a boy who must unravel a treachery more powerful than the gods themselves.

    It is a great book I would reply recommended it if you like Greek mythology I'm on the second book I'm loving the seres the graphic novel is so good and if you want to finish it and keep going on with the series I would reply recommended the graphic novel because the book is really long and starts of slow.

      It taught me all about greek mythology and it was a engaging story that sat me on the edge of my seat. I loved it. It had everything, danger, trust, aventure, and a pretty straitforward storyline.

        This is an incredible book. Percy, Annabeth and Grover make a great team. I recently bought the first series, and I am happy I did.

            I am breathless... It was so epic. I always wondered about the Greek gods and demigods!

              All I can say is WOW. No need to say more. I have to say though, I never thought I would find a book better than Harry Potter. This book proved me wrong though. Have fun reading!

                I would rate it a 4 star because it does not include much info as the real book does BUT if you just started reading THEN I would recommend this HIGHLY.

                    I loved this book because it sometimes says something unexpected about the characters. I kept on reading it because it was enthusiastic, and it told me about a different culture.
