Percy Jackson & the Olympians, also known as Percy Jackson and the Olympians or simply Percy Jackson, is the first series written by Rick Riordan, and the predecessor of The Heroes of Olympus series. The series focuses on Greek mythology.

Every book follows Percy Jackson's adventures in his point of view. Each book is loosely based on a different Greek hero's adventures. The first is based on Perseus' heroics. The second is based on Odysseus' story, The Odyssey. The third, on Hercules', the fourth, on Theseus', and the last, on Achilles'.

The series follows the completion of a Great Prophecy. The second Great Prophecy, later called the Prophecy of Seven is revealed in The Last Olympian. The Heroes of Olympus is the sequel series.
