The Great Battle saw the world changed forever when humans killed the gods and absorbed their powers. One power was coveted a

This book has a tough job to do. Any teen fantasy book set in a magical boarding school can’t escape the shadow of Hogwarts (especially when it opens up with an acceptance letter), while mentioning any kind of Greek god lands us in Percy Jackson territory, so to tackle both is pretty brave. Sadly, for me, it didn’t pay off. For one major reason: world-building. Or, rather, the complete lack of it.

Both Harry Potter and Percy Jackson inhabit a secret world hidden within the one we all know so well

Effectively a YA supers story with a skin of Greek myth. The Greek gods were killed in a war with their human slaves centuries ago, and their powers distributed themselves across the human population, so you can be, for example, a Demeter and have the power to grow plants, or a Heracles and be really strong.

The good: It's a fresh premise for a supers novel, and gives the opportunity to drop plenty of Greek mythic stuff, including all kinds of marvellous monsters. There's strong sensawunda in th

I received a free copy of POSEIDON’S ACADEMY by Sarah A. Vogler in exchange for an honest review. Hailey Woods lives in a society where humans defeated the Olympian gods and inherited their powers. Hailey has the weather powers originally owned by Zeus. It’s a really rare power type and comes with a “save the world” prophecy. That’s a lot of pressure for a thirteen-year-old, so Hailey applies to Poseidon’s Academy where she can live underwater where there is no weather and where, as a result, sh ...more

This book is great!

I really enjoyed this book. I travelled with Hailey on her journey to save her friends and defeat Hades. Can't wait to read the next one!

A cute book! Safe for all ages

It was a good book. Young teens will be captivated by the lack of sense and good fortune that save the protagonists.

Thank you to Xpresso Book Tours for the arc of this book.
I am a few years older than the intended age range for this book, but it was an ok read, I can see the age group it is aimed at enjoying it a lot more than my old self.
I did enjoy the concept of how the author used the old gods and their powers, was very original.

Greek mythology takes an interesting twist into an entirely new world, while keeping excitement and the difficult life of being a teenager in high gear.

Hundreds of years before, the Greek gods were defeated during the Great Battle, and their powers showered on humans below. Since then, everyone has a power related to one of the earlier gods. Hailey is a Zeus and the only one on the entire planet. That also makes her the someday savior for the entire world according to a prophecy. But Hailey hate

This is a story that I felt the other was trying to overcome to major books and failed greatly. The promise of a magical academy reminded me of Harry Potter. The promise of Greek Gods reminded me of Percy Jackson. This took a lot of courage for the author to write this because of these authors who came before her.

First the promise of the book sounded great, but it just did not deliver. This is because there is not building of the story world. It was so confusing to be because I just did not kno

I received a free copy from Netgalley for an honest review. Now, I've read the Percy Jackson series and Harry Potter, and this has some of the elements I really liked of each. This book is set in an alternate world that Gods were real, and have since died but passed their powers on to others. Like Harry Potter, there are specialized schools, but like Percy Jackson, they have to learn each of the powers and that no one has quite the same gifts- but both leads have rare and unique powers. I like t ...more

I love any books about Greek mythology and the Gods, so I was really excited to read this book. This book is a really neat take on how the humans have God powers after they defeated them. That means everyone has a power, which would be awesome! The main character, Hailey, has Zeus powers but doesn't really want them, while her friends love their own powers. They get accepted into Poseidon's Academy and the story is about what happens to them while they are there, along with a prophecy that seems ...more

Thanks to Netgalley and the publishers for the opportunity to read this book in exchange of honest review!
As you can tell from the title the book involve elements from the Greek Mythology.
The gods are dead and their ability rained upon the humans on Earth. Now each human has some godlike ability. But the main character is different she is the only Zeus on the Earth. She hates the pressure about it and the prophesy they try to connect her to. That's why she want to go to the Poseidon's academy w

I feel like this is perhaps aimed at the lower end of YA, rather than older teenagers. ( or maybe it's meant for middle schoolers?) It was a fun read, but pretty juvenile in parts. There were some rather unrealistic actions the kids took, ie: taking off without telling anyone to a dangerous island, and other adventures. Overall I enjoyed it, and would read more in this series. I'd just be better prepared for the tone.
There is certainly room to expand on how the human race got the powers, how th

I received this book from Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.

Cute story. A little in the Harry Potter-ish realm, but enough differences to make it interesting. Would have liked to see more of the classes, but good friendships and interesting story line.

I gave this book a 4 star. It had me turning pages and before I knew it I was done. Sarah had you going on adventures with Hailey and her friends to places that they never dreamed of going.
