    Percy is 18 this year because in book 6 which was published in 2009, Percy was 16. Add two years and you’ve got 18.

    Percy actually isn’t 18. He’s still 16,as Rick Riordan said what’s great about the book world is that characters don’t have to age or something.

    Percy’s twelve at the beginning and sixteen at the end. In The Lost Hero, three months after The Last Olympian, I think he’s still sixteen.

    If we’re going by publishing year (i.e., he was 12 in 2005), he would be 18. But in the timeline of the books (as far as we know), he’s still 16 because he hasn’t had a birthday yet.

      He’s 16, because all of the Heroes of Olympus books take place in the same year, and he was 16 in The Last Olympian.

    Percy Jackson is AMAZING!! I can’t wait for the second book in the Heroes of Olympus series: The Son of Neptune (which btw is Percy!!) but it comes out in October…. too far away!!! I love Percy Jackson and Annabeth and Grover way more than the new Heroes of Olympus characters. I am so happy that the old characters come back too!!!!

    Percy Jackson is 16 years old. And my Percy Jackson handbook said that the pattern on Mr. D’s shirt was Leopard, so I don’t know about Tiger.
