really liked it
bookshelves: fantasy, fast-paced, ya, youth
Read in August, 2009

A solid fantasy for the middle and Jr. high crowd. Fast paced action and well drawn characters combine to create a riveting fantasy that draws it's characters from ancient history and mythology (although the story does take place in the modern day.) A good recommendation for Percy Jackson fans. I picked up the audio for this book after an enthusiastic patron recommended it to me. The last several chapters were incompatible with my ipod for some reason so I finished the book by reading it. I highly recommend both versions.

Becky I read this! I forgot about it. I'll have to add it.

that's one of the this I love about Goodreads! There have been several titles that I have seen on other people's lists that have prompted me to add them to my own. I've been listening to it, and I'm really enjoying it.
