Percy Jackson Series

Percy Jackson never asked to be the son of a Greek God. In fact, it’s caused him nothing but trouble. He was living the normal life of a twelve-year-old boy, playing basketball, skateboarding and going to school, when he accidentally vaporised his maths teacher and was revealed to be a demigod. Rushed by his mother to a camp set up to protect half-bloods like him, he soon discovers that a civil war is about to break about between the gods – one that would mean catastrophe for the whole planet.

Nevermoor Series

Since Nevermoor was published in 2017 it has won multiple prizes including the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize in 2018. Written by Australian author Jessica Townsend, the Nevermoor books have often been compared to Harry Potter. Whilst they are an obvious choice for Potter fans, many more readers aged 10 upwards and fantasy lovers of any age will love them too. The length of the books and the descriptive language means they are well suited to advanced readers in particular.
