Do you love Greek mythology? If so, you're bound to become a fan of the Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan, which starts with the premise that the ancient gods are still with us and are still getting up to mischief. Humans have been seduced by the gods for millennia, and half-bloods walk our streets in the twenty-first century.
The second book in the series, Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters is now a major motion picture (20th-Century Fox; directed by Thor Freudenthal) and will be opening in theaters around the country tomorrow! Here's the studio summary:
Based on the publishing phenomenon, Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters continues the young demigod’s epic journey to fulfill his destiny. To save their world, Percy and his friends must find the fabled and powerfully magic Golden Fleece. Embarking on a treacherous odyssey into the uncharted waters of the Sea of Monsters (known to humans as the Bermuda Triangle), they battle terrifying creatures, an army of zombies, and the ultimate Evil.Not only is the story exciting (I've always been fascinated by the Bermuda Triangle) but the star power is, well, stellar. The cast includes Logan Lerman, Brandon T. Jackson, Alexandra Daddario, Jake Abel, Douglas Smith, and Stanley Tucci.
