Stephen King recommended author.

If you can get past all the names and battle-status of Greek and Trojan heroes and the Greek Gods, you will really like this book and it's sequel Olympos. I guess they would be classifed as sci-fi, but they read more like epic fantasy, with a touch of horror. Yeah, they have time-travel and black holes and quantum physics and such, but not so overwhelming that you have to be a rocket scientist to figure out what's going on. I really liked both these books!
