Camp Half-Blood Reading Order

Once upon a time, there was Percy Jackson the demigod son of Poseidon who reintroduced audiences around the world to ancient Greek and Roman mythology. But soon he was joined by other heroes in a shared universe of other demigods in separate yet connected series. This is the Camp Half-Blood reading order and timeline. Enjoy!

What’s on the Camp Half-Blood Reading Order?

The Camp Half-Blood reading order (also known as the Percy Jackson series) consists of several series, all set within the same universe. These include the Olympians series, the Kane Chronicles, the Heroes of Olympus series, the Magnum Chase books, and the Trials of Apollo series. Many of the books revolve around the character of Percy Jackson who is a modern demigod of Greco-Roman mythology, but some of the books delve into other areas of mythology, and not Percy Jackson.

Don’t forget to let us know if we missed something, or a piece of media is misplaced on the timeline. And if you enjoyed this timeline, you might like some of our others, such as the Wizarding World timeline. Thank you, and enjoy.

Where to Start?

The best place to start is with the first Percy Jackson book, The Lightning Thief, since that’s where it all started. However, the Kane Chronicles and the other series in this universe are all meant to stand on their own, so they’re also acceptable, though we still recommend The Lightning Thief first.

While we have included the films and comics in this timeline, those are extra content and not necessary for most. If all you do is read the books, you’ll be good to go.
