Editorial Reviews

"A colorful and quite enormous companion volume to Percy Jackson's Greek Gods (2014), this inviting book retells the stories of 12 notable figures from Greek mythology. . .Riordan casts a wide net in choosing his heroes, and the inclusion of four women in this traditionally male-dominated category broadens the book's appeal as well as its scope."

– Booklist

"Percy Jackson, the narrator of Riordan's novels, has returned to retell traditional Greek myths. Written from Percy's first-person point of view, the book tells a dozen stories, including the original Perseus and the Gorgons, Eros and Psyche, and Atalanta."

– VOYA

"The inevitable go-to for Percy’s legions of fans who want the stories behind his stories."

– Kirkus
