Have you ever wanted to breathe under water? Or be able to control water at your own will? Well, Percy Jackson soon discovers he can when he figures out he is the son of Poseidon (in Greek mythology, the God of the sea). And being a demi-god is no cake walk. In the book, you will see all the trials he faces trying to return Zeus’s master bolt. If you are a fan of Greek mythology, or kids with powers, you will love this series. Also if you enjoyed any fantasy books such as the Harry Potter series, though they are very different, you would enjoy this book as well. I give these books 5/5.

Heroes of Olympus by Rick Riordan

The Heroes of Olympus books by Rick Riordan will take your breath away.  This is a series about Greek Mythology in modern times and the characters face all kinds of adventure. You will see new demi-gods come into the picture and the Roman gods want in on the action too. These books remind of the Harry Potter series by J.K Rowling. What makes this series stands out is that there is new adventure around every corner and it feels like you are a part of it. If you like awesome adventure and a little romance, I recommend this series. My ratings for the series would be a 5.
