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.
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!
A great start to a new children series bringing greek mythology to life and to modern times. My 12 yo daughter read it first and then got my younger daughter and I to read it as well. A great read for the whole family!
I finished this in a couple of days. Couldnt put it down. Wished I didnt have to put it down for meals and work and things. This book is part one of a series. The Greek gods are real and now live in the USA and there is a cool reason that the main character has dyslexia and ADHD having to do with reading Greek and going on quests. I particularly like that this book is set in the USA. Its easy to read and enjoyable, in my opinion, by many age groups. I have only read this first of the series and plan on reading the others soon.
