Guest publisher blog: Percy Jackson: Where there are gods there are monsters, from Puffin books.



In Rick Riordan’s bestselling Percy Jackson series, published by Puffin, the gods of Olympus are alive and well in the 21st Century. They’re hanging out with humans, falling in love and even having kids! But these are no ordinary children – they grow-up to become great heroes and Percy Jackson is the most legendary of them all – half boy, half god, ALL hero!

“You can’t tell by looking at me that my Dad is Poseidon, God of the Sea.  It’s not easy being a half-blood these days. Even a simple game of dodgeball becomes a death match against an ugly gang of cannibal giants – and that was only the beginning. “



There are five books in this epic series and the second one, Percy Jackson:  Sea of Monsters has just been released across the globe as a major film, starring Logan Lerman, Stanley Tucci and Anthony Head. Sea of Monsters continues Percy’s epic journey to fulfil his destiny as the son of Poseidon. To save the world, Percy and his friends, Annabeth, Grover and half-brother Tyson, must find the fabled and magical Golden Fleece. Embarking on a treacherous odyssey into the uncharted waters of the Sea of Monsters, they battle terrifying creatures, an army of zombies, and the ultimate Evil.



In 2010, Puffin released the first title in a spin-off series, featuring some familiar faces from the Percy Jackson series as well as a whole host of new demigods. In Heroes of Olympus, Percy discovers a parallel training camp for children of the Roman gods, Campy Jupiter, and readers also meet a new cast of characters, including protagonists Jason Grace, son of Jupiter and Piper McClean, daughter of Aphrodite.

In the fourth title from Heroes of Olympus, Percy and Annabeth find themselves lost deep in the Underworld. Meanwhile, their five demigod friends must battle the forces of Gaea and seal the Doors of Death before the Romans march on Camp Half-Blood.

Heroes of Olympus: The House of Hades is published on 8th October 2013.
