Cyrus is making me read this because he liked it SO MUCH. The main premise is that this ADHD, troubled boy finds that he is the son of Poseidon, and that the Greek Gods are very much alive. He is sent on a quest to find the stolen thunderbolt of Zeus before the Gods start warring with each other... because when they war with each other things like WWI and WWII happen on earth. It was a little bit thin for a true adult read, but it had a good premise and plot, so I gave it 4 stars. Cyrus would have given it 5+.
