Rick Riordan - The Lightning Thief
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.

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 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.

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.

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.

Rick Riordan - The Titan's Curse
In this installment, Riordan continues to enliven ancient mythology with wit, contemporary staging, and teenage heroics. Percy Jackson is now 14, a bit older and wiser, yet still entangled with the Fates. Friends, monsters, dysfunctional gods, and the romantic stirrings of all things natural and mythological are encountered. His good friend, if oft-time rival, Annabeth (daughter of Athena) is missing, as is Artemis, goddess of the hunt. Joined by best buddy Grover-the-goat-boy and an argumentative array of accomplices, Percy sets off to fulfill, and hopefully foil, the foreboding prophecy of the Oracle. Plagued by ominous dreams, thwarted by hideous monsters, and challenged by conflicting partnerships, the search party's success hinges on unlikely unity. The droll pitch is teen-perfect, as when Apollo heats up the scene by arriving in his fire-red Maserati, wearing jeans, a sleeveless T-shirt, and loafers. 'Wow,' Thalia muttered, 'Apollo is hot.' 'He's the sun god,' I said. 'That's not what I meant.' Intricate prophecies and relationships are neatly braided into the adventurous plot. Teachers will cheer for Percy Jackson and the Olympians as they inspire students to embrace Greek mythology and score the ultimate Herculean challenge: getting kids to read. All in all, a winner of Olympic proportions and a surefire read-aloud.
Will Mabbitt - Mabel Jones és a Tiltott Város

Még ha ez azt is jelenti, hogy be kell hatolnod egy veszedelmes dzsungelbe, ahol halálos szörnyeket és mérgezett cukorkákat legyűrve juthatsz csak a Tiltott Városba. De vajon Mabel sikerrel jár-e, és kimenti húgát a gonosz Boszorkánykirálynő karmaiból? Vagy sosem látjuk őt viszont? "Csak a szél fütyülése az összedőlt épületek közt... Csak a páfrány surrogása a repedt aszfalton... És ha ott lennénk (és legyünk hálásak, hogy nem vagyunk, de ha ott lennénk), látnánk egy vén boszorkányt, aki mosolyog, és lefordítja a dzsungel elsuttogott szavait. - Úton van. A Mabel Jones nevezetű közeledik."

She needs their blood—the blood of Olympus—in order to wake. The demigods are having more frequent visions of a terrible battle at Camp Half-Blood. The Roman legion from Camp Jupiter, led by Octavian, is almost within striking distance Though it is tempting to take the Athena Parthenos to Athens to use as a secret weapon, the friends know that the huge statue belongs back on Long Island, where it might be able to stop a war between the two camps. The Athena Parthenos will go west; the Argo II will go east. The gods, still suffering from multiple personality disorder, are useless. How can a handful of young demigods hope to persevere against Gaea’s army of powerful giants? As dangerous as it is to head to Athens, they have no other option. They have sacrificed too much already. And if Gaea wakes, it is game over.

J. K. Rowling - Harry Potter és a bölcsek köve
Harry remegő kézzel megfordította a küldeményt. A borítékot lezáró piros viaszpecsétet címer díszítette: oroszlán, sas, borz és kígyó vettek körül egy nagy R betűt. Harry Potter még csak hallani sem hallott Roxfortról, amikor a Privet Drive 4-es számú ház lábtörlőjére elkezdenek sorban hullani a levelek. A zöld tintával címzett és piros pecséttel lezárt sárgás pergameneket azonban gyorsan elorozza rémes nagynénje és nagybátyja. Harry tizenegyedik születésnapját egy hatalmas, bogárszemű óriás, Rubeus Hagrid zavarja meg, és elképesztő híreket hoz: Harry Potter varázsló, és felvételt nyert a Roxfort Boszorkány- és Varázslóképző Szakiskolába.

J. K. Rowling - Harry Potter és a Titkok Kamrája
A szemközti falon valami fénylett. Óvatosan közelebb mentek, s közben hunyorogva fürkészték a sötétséget. A lobogó fáklyák fényében egy felirat csillant meg. Valaki fél méter magas betűkkel ezt mázolta a két ablak között a falra: FELTÁRULT A TITKOK KAMRÁJA. AZ UTÓD ELLENSÉGEI RESZKESSENEK! Harry Potter varázslónak született, és jelenleg második tanévére készül a Roxfort Boszorkány-és Varázslóképző Szakiskolában. De már a szünidő sem telik eseménytelenül: egy nap különös szerzet , egy házimanó jelenik meg a Privet Drive-on, és közli Harryvel, hogy nagy veszély leselkedik rá, ha visszatér az iskolába. Harry a riválisa, Draco Malfoy mesterkedését sejti az üzenet mögött, és nem törődik a figyelmeztetéssel. Sőt, valójában el is feledkezik róla, ugyanis barátja, Ron egy repülő autón megszökteti a kibírhatatlan Dursley-éktől, s Harry a nyár további részét Weasley-éknél tölti. Ám a Roxfortba visszatérve hamarosan beigazolódik, hogy Dobby, a házimanó nem a levegőbe beszélt. Szörnyű dolgok vannak készülőben... A Kate Greenaway-díjjal kitüntetett Jim Kay pazar illusztrációkkal jeleníti meg J.K. Rowling varázslatos világát az immár klasszikus sorozat második kötetében.
