Rick Riordan könyvei a rukkolán


Mi ​történne, ha rájönnél, hogy a családod az egyik leghatalmasabb család a történelemben? Mi lenne, ha azt mondanák, hogy a család erejének forrását elrejtették a világ különböző részein, 39 kulcs formájában? Mi lenne, ha választás elé állítanának - fogod az egymillió dollárt és elsétálsz. vagy megkapod az első kulcsot? Ha Amy vagy Dan Cahill helyében vagy, a kulcsot választod - és megkezdődik a veszélyes hajsza.

Amíg ​a sors össze nem hozta egy robbanó szoborral, Annabeth biztos volt benne, hogy nagy meglepetés nem érheti már az életben. Annabeth a rómaiak táborában végre megtalálja elveszett szerelmét, Percyt, de nem sokáig élvezhetik az egymásra találás örömét. Menekülni kényszerülnek. Ráadásul Nico az óriások fogságába kerül, és már csak napjai vannak hátra… Gaia ébredezik, Annabethre pedig egy magányos küldetés vár: követnie kell Rómában Athéné jelét. Ami lehet, hogy a halálba vezeti… "A könyv olyan repülőrajttal indít, ami már az író védjegyévé vált. Szellemek szállják meg hőseinket, a rómaiak a görögök ellen fordulnak, és megismerhetjük a Hetedik Prófécia titkát. Annabeth, Percy, Leo, Piper, Frank és Hazel őrült repülésre indulnak mágikus hajójukon, az Argó 2-n." - _Kirkus Reviews_ "A harmadik részben kedvenceink ismét a kalandok sűrűjében találják magukat. A rettegést ellenpontozó humor még vibrálóbbá teszi a történetet. A félistenek ugyanolyan ügyesen használják az eszüket az összecsapások során, mint a fegyvereiket, és esendőségük még szerethetőbbé teszi őket. Riordan lankadatlan mesélőkedvvel egy újabb, nagy kalandot tár elénk, és egy izgalmas befejezést. Készüljetek a negyedik könyvre!" - _Booklist Online_ "Nagyszerű könyv! Még a sorozat többi részénél is jobb. Soha nem adom kölcsön senkinek!" - _Robert, amazon.com_

A ​tizennégy éves Amy Cahill és az öccse, Dan, azt hiszi, visszatérhetnek régi életükhöz, miután megtalálták a családi hatalmat rejtő 39 Kulcsot. De tévednek. Ugyanis az árnyékban ott lapulnak veszélyes ellenségeik, a Vesperek, akiket semmi nem állít meg abban, hogy megszerezzék a Kulcsokat. Négy remek író állt össze, hogy felfedje a Vesperek és a Cahillek között dúló ötszázéves, titkos háborút. A Vesperek támadnak, és a világ végveszélyben. Készüljetek! Jönnek a Cahillek a Vesperek ellen!

In ​The Son of Neptune, Percy, Hazel, and Frank met in Camp Jupiter, the Roman equivalent of Camp Half-Blood, and traveled to the land beyond the gods to complete a dangerous quest. The third book in the Heroes of Olympus series will unite them with Jason, Piper, and Leo. But they number only six--who will complete the Prophecy of Seven? The Greek and Roman demigods will have to cooperate in order to defeat the giants released by the Earth Mother, Gaea. Then they will have to sail together to the ancient land to find the Doors of Death. What exactly are the Doors of Death? Much of the prophecy remains a mystery. With old friends and new friends joining forces, a marvelous ship, fearsome foes, and an exotic setting, The Mark of Athena promises to be another unforgettable adventure by master storyteller Rick Riordan.

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.'

A ​tizenkét éves Percy Jacksont eltanácsolják az iskolából. Megint. Bármennyire igyekszik, úgy tűnik, képtelen távol tartani magától a bajt. De tényleg szó nélkül végig kell néznie, ahogy egy kötekedő kölyök molesztálja a legjobb barátját? Tényleg nem szabad megvédenie magát az algebratanárnővel szemben, amikor az szörnyeteggé változik és meg akarja ölni? Természetesen senki nem hisz Percynek a szörny-incidenssel kapcsolatban; abban sem biztos, hogy magának hisz. Egészen addig, míg a Minótaurusz be nem kergeti a nyári táborba. Hirtelen mitikus lények járkálnak ki-be a lakokba és Percy görög mitológia könyve megelevenedik. Rájön, hogy az olimposzi istenek a huszonegyedik században is élnek. Sőt, ami ennél is rosszabb, felbosszantotta őket: Zeusz villámát ellopták, és Percy az első számú gyanúsított. Percynek mindössze tíz napja van arra, hogy megtalálja és visszaadja a Zeusztól ellopott holmit, és békét teremtsen a háborúságban álló Olimposzon.

Nico ​had warned them. Going through the House of Hades would stir the the demigods' worst memories. Their ghosts would become restless. Nico may actually become a ghost if he has to shadow-travel with Reyna and Coach Hedge one more time. But that might be better than the alternative: allowing someone else to die, as Hades foretold. Jason's ghost is his mother, who abandoned him when he was little. He may not know how he is going to prove himself as a leader, but he does know that he will not break promises like she did. He will complete his line of prophecy: To storm or fire the world must fall. Reyna fears the ghosts of her ancestors, who radiate anger. But she can't allow them to distract her from getting the Athena Pathenos to Camp Half-Blood before war breaks out between the Romans and the Greeks. Will she have enough strength to succeed, especially with a deadly hunter on her trail? Leo fears that his plan won't work, that his friends might interfere. But there is no other way. All of them know that one of the Seven has to die in order to defeat Gaea, the Earth Mother. Piper must learn to give herself over to fear. Only then will she be able to do her part atthe end: utter a single word.

Három ​vadonatúj hős. Egy eltűnt félisten. És egy átok, ami mindegyiküket pusztulással fenyegeti… Percy Jackson visszatér… Vagy mégsem? Ugyanis minden nyom nélkül eltűnik a Félvér Táborból. Annabeth égre-földre keresi kedvesét, egyelőre eredménytelenül. Ám ugyanolyan rejtélyesen, ahogy Percy felszívódott, feltűnik egy Jászon nevű srác, aki semmire sem emlékszik a múltjából, viszont nagyon sokat tud. Például a küldetésekről, és – csak úgy mellékesen – folyékonyan beszél rómaiul, hogy a farkas-pótszülőkről már ne is beszéljünk… Elhangzik egy újabb prófécia, és kezdetét veszi egy újabb küldetés – most már Jászon vezetésével. Közben kiderül néhány furcsa dolog… Jászonról is. Tényleg létezik egy másik Félvér Tábor, ahol a római istenek gyermekei nevelkednek, akik halálos ellenségei a görög félvéreknek? És a kedves olimposzi szülők vajon miért nem merik hallatni isteni hangjukat? Ki ejtette foglyul Hérát, az istenek hisztis, undok és bajkeverő királynőjét? Megéri kockáztatni érte az életüket? Megtudod, csak kövesd kedvenc íród kedvenc hőseit a leges-legújabb és legkockázatosabb küldetésre! „Egy újabb sziporkázó alkotás” - _Sunday Express_ „Elsöprő” - _Big Issue_ „Akciódús” - _Sunday Express_

Percy ​Jackson új éve az iskolában meglepően nyugodtan indul. Egyetlen szörny sem akarja betenni a lábát New York-i sulijába. Ám amikor az osztály ártatlan meccse élet-halál harccá válik egy csapat emberevő óriás ellen, a dolgok, hogy is mondjam... kezdenek eldurvulni. Váratlanul érkező barátja, Annabeth is csupa rossz hírt hoz: a Félvérek táborát védő határokat egy titokzatos ellenség lerombolta, és amíg ezeket újra helyre nem állítják, a félisteneknek nincs hová rejtőzniük...

Jason ​has a problem. He doesn’t remember anything before waking up in a bus full of kids on a field trip. Apparently he has a girlfriend named Piper and a best friend named Leo. They’re all students at a boarding school for “bad kids.” What did Jason do to end up here? And where is here, exactly? Piper has a secret. Her father has been missing for three days, ever since she had that terrifying nightmare. Piper doesn’t understand her dream, or why her boyfriend suddenly doesn’t recognize her. When a freak storm hits, unleashing strange creatures and whisking her, Jason, and Leo away to someplace called Camp Half-Blood, she has a feeling she’s going to find out. Leo has a way with tools. When he sees his cabin at Camp Half-Blood, filled with power tools and machine parts, he feels right at home. But there’s weird stuff, too—like the curse everyone keeps talking about. Weirdest of all, his bunkmates insist that each of them—including Leo—is related to a god. Join new and old friends from Camp Half-Blood in this thrilling first book in The Heroes of Olympus series

Percy ​Jackson is about to be kicked out of boarding school...again. And that's the least of his troubles. Lately, mythological monsters and the gods of Mount Olympus seem to be walking straight out of the pages of Percy's Greek mythology textbook and into his life. And worse, he's angered a few of them. Zeus's master lightning bolt has been stolen, and Percy is the prime suspect. Now Percy and his friends have just ten days to find and return Zeus's stolen property and bring peace to a warring Mount Olympus. But to succeed on his quest, Percy will have to do more than catch the true thief: he must come to terms with the father who abandoned him; solve the riddle of the Oracle, which warns him of betrayal by a friend; and unravel a treachery more powerful than the gods themselves.

A ​félvérek egész évben harcra készülődtek, de tudták, hogy nem sok esélyük van a győzelemre. Kronosz serege erősebb volt, mint valaha, és minden átállt istennel és félistennel nagyobb lett. Amíg az olimposziak a pusztító Tüphónt próbálták megállítani, addig Kronosz bevonult New Yorkba, ahol az Olimposz gyakorlatilag őrizetlenül állt. Az Idő Urának megállítása Percy Jacksonra és a fiatal félistenek csapatára várt. A világszerte sikeres sorozat izgalommal várt befejező részében beteljesül a Percy tizenhatodik születésnapjára jövendölt prófécia. Miközben Manhattan utcáin tovább dúl a nyugati világ megmentéséért vívott harc, Percyn az a szörnyű gyanú lesz úrrá, hogy saját sorsa ellen küzd. _"Magával ragadó történet. Egyszerre izgalmas, gondolatébresztő és könnyfacsaró... A regénysorozat méltó befejezése."_ - Kirkus Reviews

In ​this second adventure in Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, Percy is anticipating the end of seventh grade and a summer at Camp Half-Blood with kids who are the offspring of Greek gods and mortals. He dreams that his pal Grover, a satyr, is in danger. After monsters attack in his school gym class, Percy and Tyson, a homeless kid, are picked up by Annabeth, a half-blood friend, and rushed to the camp, which is under attack. The tree that guards the camp is dying, and Chiron, the activity director, has been dismissed. Another dream reveals that Grover, whose peril is increasing, is on the same island as the legendary Golden Fleece, which may be the cure for the troubled camp. With the help of Hermes, Percy and his pals set off to the Sea of Monsters, where they encounter legendary dangers. Riordan's clever mix of classical mythology, contemporary teen characters, and an action-packed adventure will bring new readers to the series.

Percy ​Jackson semmi jót nem várt az iskolai nyílt naptól, de amikor titokzatos halandó ismerőse után két pomponlánydémonnal is találkozik, a dolgok még a vártnál is rosszabbra fordulnak. A sikersorozat negyedik kötetében már a küszöbön áll az olimposziak és a Titán isten közötti háború. Még az eddig biztonságos menedéknek számító Félvér Tábor is sebezhetőnek bizonyul, amikor Kronosz és hadserege megpróbál varázshatárán belülre kerülni. Hogy a támadásnak elejét vegyék, Percy és félisten barátai egy küldetésre indulnak a Labirintusba - a hatalmas, föld alatti világba, ami minden fordulóban újabb vérfagyasztó meglepetést tartogat számukra.

All ​year the half-bloods have been preparing for battle against the Titans, knowing the odds of victory are grim. Kronos's army is stronger than ever, and with every god and half-blood he recruits, the evil Titan's power only grows. While the Olympians struggle to contain the rampaging monster Typhon, Kronos begins his advance on New York City, where Mount Olympus stands virtually unguarded. Now it's up to Percy Jackson and an army of young demigods to stop the Lord of Time. In this momentous final book in the New York Times best-selling Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, the long-awaited prophecy surrounding Percy's sixteenth birthday unfolds. And as the battle for Western civilization rages on the streets of Manhattan, Percy faces a terrifying suspicion that he may be fighting against his own fate.

Amikor ​Percy Jackson megkapja Groover segélyhívását, készülődni kezd a harcra. Jól tudja, hogy szüksége lesz erős szövetségeseire, Annabethre ás Tháliára, a félistenekre; valamint hűséges bronzkardjára, Árapályra is... és egy fuvarra a mamájától. A félistenek Grover megmentésére sietnek, aki – mint később kiderül – fontos felfedezést tett: két félistenre bukkant, kiknek származása egyelőre még ismeretlen, de igen nagy erővel rendelkeznek... De ez még nem minden. A Titán úr, Kronosz felállítja számukra eddigi legfondorlatosabb csapdáját, és az ifjú hősök majdnem belesétálnak. A sorozat mulattató, és izgalmas harmadik kalandjában Percynek a legveszélyesebb kihívással kell szembenéznie: a Titán Átkának hátborzongató próféciájával... _"Vicces és pörgő... Percy az a hős, akivé minden srác válni akar."_ - Sunday Express

The ​triple-crown winner of mystery’s most prestigious awards–the Edgar, the Anthony, and the Shamus–Rick Riordan blasted onto the crime scene with one of its freshest and most intriguing protagonists, Tres Navarre. In Mission Road, Navarre returns in a wrenching crime drama in which he must revisit the sins of the past to catch a killer about to get away with murder…again.

When an old friend appears at his door spattered with blood and wanted for attempted homicide, Tres doesn’t have to think twice about where his loyalty lies–or the consequences.

Now Ana’s been gunned down and her fellow cops don’t need to look far to find a prime suspect. For Ana recently reopened the most infamous cold case in SAPD history–the unsolved murder on notorious Mission Road eighteen years before that threw the San Antonio underworld into bloody chaos. Ana was about to bring charges against the suspected killer: her husband, Ralph Arguello.Tres is sure that Ralph didn’t do it–and that he didn’t shoot his wife. But with the police and the Mafia both out for revenge, there’s no one to turn to for help. Now, armed and dangerous, the targets of a citywide manhunt, Tres and Ralph have just hours to discover what really happened on Mission Road almost two decades ago. To find the truth, they must set a collision course with the past–and with a secret that will tear their lives apart.

Los ​mestizos han dedicado mucho tiempo a prepararse para la batalla decisiva contra los titanes, aunque saben que sus posibilidades de obtener la victoria son mínimas.

Los olímpicos se esfuerzan en mantener a raya la furia desatada del monstruo Tifón. Cronos ordena el avance definitivo hacia la ciudad de Nueva York, donde el monte Olimpo, en lo alto del Empire State, se encuentra prácticamente indefenso. Pararle los pies al implacable Señor del Tiempo dependerá exclusivamente de Percy Jackson y un pequeño ejército de jóvenes semidioses... En esta última y trascendental entrega de la serie, la profecía largamente anunciada en torno al decimosexto cumpleaños de Percy se hace por fin realidad. Y mientras la batalla por la civilización occidental se libra con brutal ensañamiento en las calles de Manhattan, Percy abriga la terrible sospecha de estar luchando tal vez contra su propio destino.

Unfortunately, the magicians of the House of Life are on the brink of civil war, the gods are divided, and the young initiates of Brooklyn House stand almost alone against the forces of chaos.

Percy ​Jackson non sapeva di essere destinato a grandi imprese prima di vedere la professoressa di matematica trasformarsi in una Furia per tentare di ucciderlo. Le creature della mitologia greca e gli dei dell'Olimpo, in realtà, non sono scomparsi ma si sono semplicemente trasferiti a New York, più vivi e litigiosi di prima. Tanto che l'ultimo dei loro bisticci rischia di trascinare il mondo nel caos: qualcuno ha rubato la Folgore di Zeus, e qualcuno dovrà ritrovarla entro dieci giorni. Sarà proprio Percy a dover indagare sull'innocenza di Poseidone, dio del mare e padre perduto, che l'ha generato con una donna mortale facendo di lui un semidio. Nuove gesta e antichi nemici lo aspettano, e non saranno solo lo sguardo di Medusa e i capricci degli dei ad ostacolare la ricerca della preziosa refurtiva, ma le parole dell'Oracolo e il suo oscuro verdetto: un amico tradirà, e il suo gesto potrebbe essere fatale...

Narrated in two different wisecracking voices, featuring a large cast of new and unforgettable characters, and with adventures spanning the globe, this second installment in the Kane Chronicles is nothing short of a thrill ride.

Ma è custodito su un'isola da Polifemo, nelle acque tumultuose del Mare dei Mostri. La missione è affidata alla figlia di Ares, ma Percy non può certo restarsene con le mani in mano.

If Magnus Chase and his friends can’t retrieve the hammer quickly, the mortal worlds will be defenseless against an onslaught of giants. Ragnarok will begin. The Nine Worlds will burn.

Soon, Sadie and Carter discover that the gods of Egypt are waking, and the worst of them —Set— has his sights on the Kanes. To stop him, the siblings embark on a dangerous journey across the globe - a quest that brings them ever closer to the truth about their family and their links to a secret order that has existed since the time of the pharaohs.
