I enjoyed this "riotously paced," as described by Kirkus reviews, book was a fun quick read, with an interesting Ancient Greek twist to the modern world. Although the plot twists weren't so twisty, so to speak (which may have only been the case for an adult reader), I enjoyed imagining the 12-year-old demi-gods' encounters with Ares, Hades, Poseidon, and Zeus.
