Author Rick Riordan
Publisher Puffin books
Genre Adventure-Roman Mythology
From Enid Blyton, one graduated to Nancy Drew and Hardy boys. But teenage adventures with a lot of Mythology thrown in.
Rick Riordan feeds an appetite whetted by JK Rowling, Equally enticing the book is enjoyable. The book requires a certain knowledge of Roman mythology. Instead of wizards and witches we have mortals or rather demi-gods with a Olympian parent and a mortal parent. The child is essentially without a magical abilities but taps on intrinsic strengths.
A thoroughly enjoyable book to relax with.
Definitely a safe book to leave tween and teenagers.
