In his series Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Rick Riordan has created a community of modern-day adolescents who are, in actuality, demi-gods. They are the offspring of mortals and the Olympian gods and goddesses. Percy discovers he himself is the son of Poseidon. As such, each of these demi-gods has certain powers at his or her disposal that, frankly, other kids just don't have. Armed with this new knowledge of himself, Percy sets out in his first adventure to find the stealer of Zeus's lightning bolt.
