Percy Jackson and the Olympians Review
These books are great for kids. The integration of Greek mythology into the modern world is creative and fun. The pace is easy and there is action and suspense every chapter. The characters are multifaceted and face real problems aside from saving the world, including family relationships, friendship, and living with disabilities (Percy has AD/HD and dyslexia). The plot is creative and the series has an ending that I did not see coming from anywhere.
If you've never read these, I recommend them, and also for your kids if you have any. Riordan's first series is great, and his newer ones are definitely on my list to read next.
