How could Harry Potter be better? Forget that wizard nonsense, let's have a series about how Greek mythology is real! There are kids who have one parent who is a Greek god, and they all need special training to defend themselves against the mythological monsters. Almost every child I've recommended this to has come right back for the sequel. As an adult reader who likes some children's fantasy writing but not all, I think this and the Peter and the Starcatcher books are the best I've come across in the last few years.

I really enjoyed this book. I love the idea of the Greek gods being real. If you like mythology I think you'll like this book. Sure it's a children's book but I bought it for myself!

Very clever! I haven't read anything this entertaining about Greek mythology in a very long time - if ever. The characters are well-detailed and interesting, and the action is fresh and flowing.

Love it! I cannot say enough about this series! It is witty, exciting, and makes you look back into your mythology books to make sure you "got it" all. This first book starts the series off strong, and it only gets better as each book comes out!
