I originally picked this book up from one of the local charity shops and had it on my bookshelf for a very long time not thinking that I would enjoy it very much but I was pleasantly surprised with this book, I was hooked from the very beginning I thought it was a very original idea mixing the old Greek gods with the modern day civilisation. I also thought that it was very well written, and was a definite page turner. The plot and story was very good and easy to follow and the characters were easily relatable, and had very good chemistry. I would highly recommend this book to all ages of people.

Now reserved for the mythological sweepstakes

Wow, thank you Abi! I haven't read any of the series yet (nor watched the movies), so I am curious to make Percy's acquaintance. The fact that you liked it so much is certainly motivating!

Yes, I agree: This definitely is a fun and engaging read that should appeal to a wide range of people.
The trouble is, I read this right after Runemarks, and compared to that, Percy simply fell a bit short. Both books make a perfect "tandem read", as they have a lot in common: there is a young hero who is suddenly faced with a pantheon of gods that they thought fictional or at best long-forgotten, a hunt for mysterious artifacts, divine scheming and plotting and family secrets, and the threat of nothing less than the end of the world. But while Runemarks is told by an omniscient narrator, this is in Percy's own teenage voice, which makes for pleasant, simple and fun reading, but also for rather little depth.
Still, Percy's adventures are very entertaining, and it's a lot of fun to spot all the allusions to mythological creatures. I'd likely read the other installments of the series if I found them, but I'm not enthusiastic enough to actually put them on my wishlist. :)

Thank you for the book, Lamilla! And for the beautiful postcard! I've listened to the entire series on audio book (with distracted attention as I was doing so while working) and seen the movie, but never actually read them. It will be fun to revisit Percy's world and this time to pay more attention to it!
