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

You've ​read the book. You've seen the movie. Now submerge yourself in the thrilling, stunning, and action-packed graphic novel. Mythological monsters and the gods of Mount Olympus seem to be walking out of the pages of twelve-year-old Percy Jackson's textbooks and into his life. And worse, he's angered a few of them.

Now, he and his friends have just ten days to find and return Zeus's stolen property and bring peace to a warring Mount Olympus.

Percy ​Jackson isn't expecting freshman orientation to be any fun. But when a mysterious mortal acquaintance appears on campus, followed by demon cheerleaders, things quickly move from bad to diabolical. In this latest installment of the blockbuster series, time is running out as war between the Olympians and the evil Titan lord Kronos draws near. Even the safe haven of Camp Half-Blood grows more vulnerable by the minute as Kronos's army prepares to invade its once impenetrable borders. To stop them, Percy and his demigod friends must set out on a quest through the Labyrinth-a sprawling underground world with stunning surprises at every turn. Full of humor and heart-pounding action, this fourth book promises to be their most thrilling adventure yet.

Jason ​erinnert sich an gar nichts – nicht einmal an seine besten Freunde Piper und Leo. Und was hat er in Camp Half-Blood zu suchen, wo angeblich nur Kinder von griechischen Göttern aufgenommen werden? Zu allem Überfluss gehören die drei Freunde laut Prophezeiung zu den legendären sieben Halbgöttern, die den Olymp vor dem Untergang bewahren sollen. Kein Problem – Leo treibt einen mechanischen Drachen als Transportmittel auf und los geht’s! Und dann gilt es auch noch einen seit längerem verschwundenen Halbgott zu finden, einen gewissen Percy Jackson ...

„Egy ​New York-i kiadó felkért, hogy írjak meg mindent, amit a görög istenekről tudok, mire azt kérdeztem: Mehet névtelenül? Mert nem szeretném, ha az olimposziak megint bepöccennének rám. Másrészről viszont, ha ezzel segítek megismerni a görög isteneket, ami akár életmentő is lehet, ha egyszer előttetek teremnek, már meg is van a heti jócselekedetem.” Így kezdődik a Percy Jackson és a görög istenek, amiben Poszeidón fiának egyedi – gunyoros megjegyzésekkel fűszerezett – tolmácsolásában olvashatjuk a mitológiai történeteket. Ki tudná mindezt jobban elmesélni, mint Percy? Szó esik a világ teremtéséről, majd az ókori istenek bemutatása következik, Apollóntól Zeuszig. Percy nem fogja vissza magát. „Ha szeretitek a horrort, a vérfürdőt, a hazugságokat, a lopást, az ármánykodást és a kannibalizmust, olvassatok tovább, mert ez volt a rémtettek aranykora.” Tudj meg még többet a görög világról!

La ​vita di un semidio a New York non è sempre facile, e quella di Percy Jackson è diventata una vera impresa da quando ha scoperto di essere figlio di Poseidone e deve trascorrere tutte le estati al Campo Mezzosangue, insieme ai suoi simili. Ma ora il campo è in grave pericolo: l'albero magico che lo protegge è stato avvelenato e non riesce più a difenderlo dalle invasioni dei mostri. Solo il Vello d'Oro può salvarlo! 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.

Percy ​versteht die Welt nicht mehr. Jedes Jahr fliegt er von einer anderen Schule. Ständig passieren ihm seltsame Unfälle. Und jetzt soll er auch noch an dem Tornado schuld sein! Langsam wird ihm klar: Irgendjemand hat es auf ihn abgesehen. Als Percy sich mit Hilfe seines Freundes Grover vor einem Minotaurus ins Camp Half-Blood rettet, erfährt er die Wahrheit: Sein Vater ist der Meeresgott Poseidon, Percy also ein Halbgott. Und er hat einen mächtigen Feind: Kronos, den Titanen. Die Götter stehen Kopf - und Percy und seine Freunde vor einem unglaublichen Abenteuer ...

Tres ​Navarre has just hours of apprenticeship time to serve before he can go for his P.I. license. Staking out a musician suspected of stealing a demo tape should be a piece of pan dulce. But his attention wanders just long enough for fiddle player Julie Kearnes to be gunned down before his eyes. He should just back away and let the cops investigate, but backing away has never been Tres's strong point. The missing demo and Julie's murder are just two of the problems besetting Miranda Daniels, a pint-sized singer with Texas-sized talent. She's the prize in a tug-of-war between two music hotshots who want to manage her career. One has a habit of making bad things happen to people he doesn't like. The other has just vanished without a trace. As Tres looks into the dirty dealings surrounding Miranda, it becomes clear he's stepped into a rattlesnakes' nest of greed, double cross, and murder—and he may be the next to be snakebit.

Seventh ​grade has been surprisingly quiet for Percy Jackson. Not a single monster has set foot on his New York prep-school campus. But when an innocent game of dodgeball among Percy and his classmates turns into a death match against an ugly gang of cannibal giants, things get...well, ugly. And the unexpected arrival of his friend Annabeth brings more bad news: the magical borders that protect Camp Half-Blood have been poisoned by a mysterious enemy, and unless a cure is found, the only safe haven for demigods will be destroyed. In the follow-up to the wildly popular _The Lightning Thief, The Graphic Novel,_ Percy and his friends must journey into the Sea of Monsters to save their camp. But first, Percy will discover a stunning new secret about his family--one that makes him question whether being claimed as Poseidon's son is an honor or simply a cruel joke. Featuring a faithful adaptation by Robert Venditti, stunning artwork by Attila Futaki, and sumptuous colors by newcomer Tamas Gaspar, Rick Riordan's blockbuster book comes to life in _The Sea of Monsters, The Graphic Novel._

Magnus ​Chase has always been a troubled kid. Since his mother's mysterious death, he's lived alone on the streets of Boston, surviving by his wits, keeping one step ahead of the police and the truant officers. One day, he's tracked down by an uncle he's never met—a man his mother claimed was dangerous. His uncle tells him an impossible secret: Magnus is the son of a Norse god. The Viking myths are true. The gods of Asgard are preparing for war. Trolls, giants and worse monsters are stirring for doomsday. To prevent Ragnarok, Magnus must search the Nine Worlds for a weapon that has been lost for thousands of years. When an attack by fire giants forces him to choose between his own safety and the lives of hundreds of innocents, Magnus makes a fatal decision. Sometimes, the only way to start a new life is to die . . .

A ​new prophecy leads to a dangerous quest. When Percy receives an urgent distress call from Grover, he immediately prepares for battle. He knows he'll need his powerful demigod allies, Annabeth and Thalia, at his side; his trusty bronze sword, Riptide; and...a ride from his mom. The demigods race to the rescue, only to find that Grover has made an important discovery: two new powerful half-bloods, whose parentage is unknown. But that's not all that awaits them. The Titan lord, Kronos, has set up his most devious trap yet, and the young heroes have just fallen prey. Now, Percy and his friends are faced with their most dangerous challenge--the chilling prophecy of the Titan's Curse. They must rescue the goddess Artemis by the Winter Solstice, or all will be lost...including Annabeth. Rick Riordan's internationally best-selling "The Titan's Curse" becomes a graphic novel in the hands of comic-book luminaries Robert Venditti, Attila Futaki, and Gregory Guilhaumond.

For ​Tres Navarre, English professor turned private investigator, business has lately taken a drastic turn south. But if chasing down bail jumpers, adulterous spouses, and workmen’s comp cases seemed like the dregs of the PI game, it was at least a living. Not as much could be said for tracking down a man like Will “the Ghost” Stirman. The stone-cold killer has just staged a bloody escape from the Floresville State Penitentiary with a gang of violent cons as spooked by Stirman as those on the outside who helped put him behind bars. And no one seems more worried than Navarre’s boss and mentor, Erainya Manos. It was her husband along with rival PI Sam Barrera who built the case that sent Stirman away. But Erainya’s husband is dead and she’s certain Stirman won’t let that stand in the way of his taking revenge against her and her adopted son. All of Navarre’s instincts are screaming that there’s more to this case than meets the eye. But Erainya won’t tell him—and Sam Barrera seems to be escaping into a strange twilight from a truth too terrible to remember. That leaves Tres to dig into a twisted mystery of greed, vigilantism, and murder, where lives are bought and sold and the line between guilt and innocence is razor-thin. Meanwhile, Stirman and his gang are coming, leaving behind them a trail of brutal, unforgiving violence that will end in an area of San Antonio known as Southtown—but that may soon just as well be called hell on earth.

Ever ​since the gods of Ancient Egypt were unleashed in the modern world, Carter Kane and his sister Sadie have been in trouble. As descendants of the House of Life, the Kanes have some powers at their command, but the devious gods haven't given them much time to master their skills at Brooklyn House, which has become a training ground for young magicians. And now their most threatening enemy yet - the chaos snake Apophis - is rising. If they don't prevent him from breaking free in a few days' time, the world will come to an end. In other words, it's a typical week for the Kane family. To have any chance of battling the Forces of Chaos, the Kanes must revive the sun god Ra. But that would be a feat more powerful than any magician has ever accomplished. First they have to search the world for the three sections of the Book of Ra, then they have to learn how to chant its spells. Oh, and did we mention that no one knows where Ra is exactly? 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.

Triple-crown ​winner of mystery’s most coveted awards—the Edgar, the Anthony, and the Shamus—Rick Riordan and his Texas-style take on the crime novel have never been bigger or darker than in this latest Tres Navarre thriller. This time Navarre faces a killer as unstoppable as a force of nature. Tres Navarre had given up private investigation—and with it a violent past that had buried too many friends. Newly married, with a baby on the way, it was time to find a safer line of work. He and Maia had come to Rebel Island to celebrate their honeymoon and a new future. But no sooner had they arrived than a reminder of the past showed up in the form of a corpse shot dead in room 12. Just like that Tres finds himself flashing back on the memory of a grim childhood summer spent on the island—a summer that changed everything in his life. A summer he could never forget but never entirely remember either. And when a second corpse turns up, it’s clear to Tres that the past is not dead and buried after all, but is stalking Rebel Island with unfinished business of its own. What really happened that long-ago summer, what dark secrets were kept, and who has come back to avenge them…these are the questions Tres, his brother Garrett, and the very pregnant Maia must answer—and time is running out. For a monster hurricane is about to hit Rebel Island, cutting them off from the mainland and leaving them trapped on a flooding island with the hotel’s remaining guests brutally dying one by one. Tres knows better than anyone that the bloodlines of South Texas are as twisted as barbed wire. This time they’re guarding a revelation that can turn his dreams of happily ever after into the ultimate nightmare.

At ​the conclusion of The Mark of Athena, Annabeth and Percy tumble into a pit leading straight to the Underworld. The other five demigods have to put aside their grief and follow Percy's instructions to find the mortal side of the Doors of Death. If they can fight their way through the Gaea's forces, and Percy and Annabeth can survive the House of Hades, then the Seven will be able to seal the Doors both sides and prevent the giants from raising Gaea. But, Leo wonders, if the Doors are sealed, how will Percy and Annabeth be able to escape? They have no choice. If the demigods don't succeed, Gaea's armies will never die. They have no time. In about a month, the Romans will march on Camp Half-Blood. The stakes are higher than ever in this adventure that dives into the depths of Tartarus.

The ​Cahills aren't the only family searching for the Clues. . . . The Cahills thought they were the most powerful family the world had ever known. They thought they were the only ones who knew about Gideon Cahill and his Clues. The Cahills were wrong. Powerful enemies —the Vespers— have been waiting in the shadows. Now it’s their time to rise and the world will never be the same. In Vespers Rising, a brand new 39 Clues novel, bestselling authors Rick Riordan, Peter Lerangis, Gordon Korman and Jude Watson take on the hidden history of the Cahills and the Vespers, and the last, terrible legacy Grace Cahill leaves for Amy and Dan.

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...
