When Zeus's master lightning bolt has been stolen, Percy Jackson is the prime suspect. Percy and his friends have just ten days to find Zeus's stolen property and bring peace to 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 an Oracle's riddle; and unravel a treachery more powerful than the gods. This deluxe gift edition of the internationally best-selling first book in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, lavishly illustrated by series artist John Rocco, is a must-have for Riordan fans.
