I know books for young readers can't, by their very natures, be too long, complex, and developed, and certain concessions must be made. Still, this one felt so sketchy and simplified in its development of characters, plot, dialogue, and portrayal of mythology that I had trouble accepting much of what it offered. Everything felt too compromised to the effort to be appealing and accessible. So, in the end, that's what it has to offer: A quick read full of action, it will appeal for its ease of access and introduction to mythological figures.

My 7 year old son loves these books. This is the first series of books that he actually has a hard time putting down. Because of the mythological content and the exciting storyline, he is eager to read all the time. Even his reading speed has greatly improved!
