One of the series that I’ve enjoyed reading recently is the Percy Jackson series.  The Lightening Thief is the first book of the series, which was recently made into a movie.

Just as Percy Jackson is finding out about his strange powers, he is whisked away to Camp Half-Blood, where he begins his training along with other demigods.   In this series, Percy undertakes quests to battle evil in the form of ruling gods, traitors, family, friends, monsters, and titans.

This series is an entertaining, well-written fantasy series written for tweens, though any age or gender will enjoy reading the mythical series.  If you decide to watch the movie, read the book first, lest you miss out on a good story line and excellent details that the film fails to portray.

You can purchase the series here.
