The books are very engaging. My 11 year old son started the series and now has us all hooked on them. Greek mythology is interesting for the kids as it is likely the first time they have been introduced to all the Gods, monsters, demigods etc. rather than just one character from a movie. It is quite educational yet exciting to continue reading the series.

This series is an excellent one for kids of all ages. It not only has good story lines, but it teaches a little about Greek mythology at the same time. Set in modern day, the heroes are considered demigods since their fathers are gods and mothers are human. The series has a 'Harry Potter(ish)' flavor to it and can be enjoyed by readers of all ages. Highly recommended
