the only thing I did not like was that when Hades was defining a word he would say "that's old Greek speak"

Have a Hot Time, Hades! by Kate McMullan (Myth-o-mania #1)

Hades, king of the underworld, reveals the true story behind the myths. When he and his siblings were born, their father Cronus swallowed them whole because of a prophecy that said one of his children would be mightier than he. Can Hades and his brothers and sisters overthrow their big, bad dad?

This is a fun take on Greek Mythology that is told through Hades point of view. He claims that his little brother Zeus is a giant liar. When he read the myths based on what Zeus had written he wanted to set things straight and let people know what truly happened. There are great origin stories like how the Olympics were created and how the Olympians defeated the Titans.

Anyone who likes mythology and retellings will eat this up. The books are fun and have a glossary at the back of the book so that young readers (and adults alike) can understand who the gods are and how to pronounce their names. Also the books include the version of the myths that we all know so you can compare what happens in both perspectives.

Fans of series like Goddess Girls or Percy Jackson will appreciate these quick stories that will have you contemplating the myths as we know them.
