Rick Riordan könyvei a rukkolán


Rick Riordan - A ​villámtolvaj
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.

Rick Riordan - El ​ladrón del rayo
¿Qué ​pasaría si un día descubres que, en realidad, eres hijo de un dios griego que debe cumplir una misión secreta? Pues eso es lo que le sucede a Percy Jackson, que a partir de ese momento se dispone a vivir los acontecimientos más emocionantes de su vida. Expulsado de seis colegios, Percy padece dislexia y dificultades pa ra concentrarse, o al menos ésa es la versión oficial. Objeto de burlas por inventarse historias fantásticas, ni siquiera él mismo acaba de creérselas hasta el día que los dioses del Olimpo le revelan la verdad: Percy es nada menos que un semidiós, es decir, el hijo de un dios y una mortal. Y como tal ha de descubrir quién ha robado el rayo de Zeus y así evitar que estalle una guerra entre los dioses. Para cumplir la misión contará con la ayuda de sus amigos Grover, un joven sátiro, y Annabeth, hija de la sabia Atenea. El ladrón del rayo da comienzo a una apasionante serie de aventuras sobre un mundo secreto, el mundo que los antiguos dioses griegos han recreado a nuestro alrededor en pleno siglo XXI.

Rick Riordan - The ​Widower's Two-Step
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.

Rick Riordan - Mary-Jane Knight - Percy ​Jackson & the Olympians: The Ultimate Guide
A ​handbook no half-blood should be without: a fully illustrated, in-depth guide to gods, monsters, and all things Percy. This companion to the series comes complete with trading cards, full-color diagrams, and maps, all packaged in a handy manual with a crisp, magnetic flap enclosure.

Rick Riordan - The ​Red Pyramid
Since ​their mother's death, Carter and Sadie have become near strangers. While Sadie has lived with her grandparents in London, her brother has traveled the world with their father, the brilliant Egyptologist, Dr. Julius Kane. One night, Dr. Kane brings the siblings together for a "research experiment" at the British Museum, where he hopes to set things right for his family. Instead, he unleashes the Egyptian god Set, who banishes him to oblivion and forces the children to flee for their lives. 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.

Rick Riordan - The ​Sea of Monsters
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.

Rick Riordan - The ​Hidden Oracle
How ​do you punish an immortal? By making him human. After angering his father Zeus, the god Apollo is cast down from Olympus. Weak and disorientated, he lands in New York City as a regular teenage boy. Now, without his godly powers, the four-thousand-year-old deity must learn to survive in the modern world until he can somehow find a way to regain Zeus's favour. But Apollo has many enemies - gods, monsters and mortals who would love to see the former Olympian permanently destroyed. Apollo needs help, and he can think of only one place to go . . . an enclave of modern demigods known as Camp Half-Blood.

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.

Rick Riordan - Percy ​Jackson és a görög istenek
„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!

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.

Rick Riordan - Southtown
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.

Rick Riordan - El ​último héroe del Olimpo

El ejército de Cronos es ahora más formidable que nunca y, con cada dios y cada mestizo que logra reclutar, aumentan los poderes del maligno titán. Percy fracasa en un primer intento de detener en alta mar las arrolladoras huestes de Cronos e, inevitablemente, estalla la contienda más sanguinaria y espeluznante de todos los tiempos, un auténtico enfrentamiento por la supervivencia. 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.

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.

Rick Riordan - The ​Blood of Olympus
Though ​the Greek and Roman crew members of the Argo II have made progress in their many quests, they still seem no closer to defeating the earth mother, Gaea. Her giants have risen—all of them, and they’re stronger than ever. They must be stopped before the Feast of Spes, when Gaea plans to have two demigods sacrificed in Athens. 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.

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.

Rick Riordan - Percy ​Jackson görög hősei
Ki ​vágta le Medusza fejét? Ki nevelkedett egy nősténymedve mellett? Ki szelídítette meg Pegazust? Ezt csak egy félisten tudhatja, és Percy Jackson részletesen be is számol Perszeusz, Atalanté, Bellerophón meg a többi nagy görög hős merész tetteiről. A Percytől megszokott vagány, pimasz stílusnak köszönhetően (ez szinte már elvárás az olvasók részéről), amit John Rocco vibráló grafikái tesznek teljessé, ez a gyűjtemény hamar a Rick Riordan rajongók népes és odaadó táborának vadonatúj kedvencévé válhat, de mindenkinek szívből ajánljuk, aki igazi hősökre vágyik. Szóval elő a lángoló lándzsákkal! Kanyarítsátok magatokra az oroszlánbőr köpenyeteket! Fényesítsétek ki a pajzsotokat, és töltsétek fel nyilakkal a tegezeteket! Négyezer évet repülünk vissza az időben, hogy szörnyeket nyakazzunk le, megmentsünk néhány királyságot, fenékbe lőjük egy-két istent,megszálljuk az Alvilágot, és gonosz haramiákat raboljunk ki. Hogy aztán, desszert gyanánt, fájdalmas és tragikus halált haljunk. Készen álltok? Zsír! Akkor indulás!

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. The Kanes' only hope is an ancient spell that might turn the serpent's own shadow into a weapon, but the magic has been lost for a millennia.

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.

Rick Riordan - Il ​ladro di fulmini
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...

Rick Riordan - Robert Venditti - The ​Sea of Monsters
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._
