This book is good, but I like the Percy Jackson series better

i thought that this book was not only interesting but it taught me a lot about Greek Myths, too. The setting gave it a creepy feeling, which makes a story better, in my opinion.

Interesting read - what if the Greek gods were real - adventure story

if you think this one is good, the next two are even better. Char is a character with spunk, very likeable.

When I first heard about this, I thought that it was just copying Percy Jackson and the Olympians. But when I read it, I was wrongand I actually quite enjoyed it. This is nothing like Percy Jackson, they're only based on greek mythology. But the plots are WAY different from each other, and the ideas are each unique and different. I love them both!

A quirky, funny book, although it starts off slow, once it picks up speed it’s quite the page-turner.
Although it might not be everyone’s cup of tea, a relatable hero and a humorous villain make this book a good choice if you’re looking for something different for your summer reading.

This was a great book in its own right. the Percy Jacksons were nothing like the Cronus Chronicals. the fact that they bolth were based on greek mythology was the only similarity. I loved the darker elements of the story and the way the author had normal kids as the heros, that was nice for a change.

Read this when I was younger but it happened to pass my path recently, so I picked it up again. Seemed like a copycat of The Lightning Thief, didn't really have a lot going for it to be honest.

I got this for my 9-year-old who loved the Percy Jackson series. He rejects most of my suggestions, but he liked this one a lot - enough to want to read the whole series. Good characters, plot is a little uneven but lots of fun. Highly recommended for the Lightning Thief crowd.

The Greek gods come to life in this book. Read this adventure to see how the two worlds mix.
