Recommended for: HP fans
Read from February 12 to 15, 2010

While the comparisons to Harry Potter seem unavoidable (the author gives a subtle nod to the wizard series in the book) this is another great adventure/fantasy story with a very similar feel. And having just read Catcher in the Rye, I couldn't help but feel Holden's influence in Percy as well. A bit predictable but great adventure and a fun way to re-learn all those gods and legends from grade school mythology.
