The Lost Hero 

by Rick Riordan
10/22/2012 Categories: action adventure mythology suspense

Lost Hero coverJason, a teen who has no idea who he is or where he came from, finds himself at Camp Half-Blood with two other teens, Piper and Leo, who find out they are demi-gods sent to rescue a Greek goddess who was imprisoned.

It is a good book because it is told from three different points of view.

I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading books in a series.

Throne coverCarter and Sadie Kane must prevent the rise of the chaos snake Apophis but to do this, they must revive the sun god Ra.

This is a good book because it is told in first person and lets you visualize the story.

I would recommend this book to kids of all ages especially if you like the Percy Jackson series and books about mythology.

Battle of the Labyrinth coverThis is book four in the Percy Jackson series. Percy, now 15, hurries to Camp Half-Blood where he is sent on a quest through the Labyrinth to protect his camp from the army of lord Kronos.

This book is interesting because the plot is really good all the way to the climax.

I recommend this book to anybody who is interested in Greek mythology and wants a good book to read.

Luka and the Fire of Life 

by Salman Rushdie
01/31/2012 Categories: adventure fantasy mythology

Luka coverLuka, along with his pets, dog and bear, set off into a magical world created by his father, Rashid Khalifa. This story revolves around Luka's journey as he retrieves the "Fire of Life" in order to save his father's life.

Luka and the Fire of Life is one of those novels that has you completely enthralled in the story. The novel incorporates several figures from various mythologies along with references to the tangible world. 

I would recommend this book to anyone 10 and up that enjoys fictional adventures/travels. It's a great read that emphasizes a son's love for his father. All in all, it's a really great book!
