Percy Jackson, son of Poseidon, God of the Sea, has woken from a very deep sleep and come face to face with two snake-haired ladies who refuse to die. But they're the least of his problems. Because Percy finds himself at a camp for half-bloods, which doesn't ring any bells for him. There's just one name he remembers from his past.
One cursed demigod. Two new heroes. A quest to unleash the god of death . . . I'm the God of Rome. I protect the legions. I don't want war without end. You will serve me.' 'Not likely,' Percy said. 'I order a quest!' the god announced. 'You will go north and find Thanatos in the land beyond the gods. You will free him and thwart the plans of the giants.' 'Another cracking read.'

Rick Riordan is a teacher and a writer, and has won many awards for his mystery novels for adults. He says that the idea for Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief first came to him while he was teaching Greek mythology at middle school in San Francisco. But rumour has it that Camp Half Blood actually exists, and Rick spends his summers there recording the adventures of young demigods. Some believe that, to avoid a mass panic among the mortal population, he was forced to swear on the River Styx to present Percy Jackson's story as fiction. Rick lives in Texas (apart from his summers on Half Blood Hill) with his wife and two sons.
