I finished the Percy Jackson series (The Last Olympian), by Rick Riordan. This is a series that I can easily recommend to kids as well as adult fantasy fans. Percy Jackson is a modern day demi-god who has to save Mount Olympus and the rest of the world through a series of heroic quests. Good versus evil with a dose of Greek mythology thrown in. I love how Riordan puts some modern twists to classic stories. For example, in the 2nd book, Percy is trapped on an island, ruled by Circe, an evil enchantress. In Homer's Odyssey, Circe changes Odysseus' band into pigs. In Riordan's version, Percy and his friends are turned into squeaking guinea pigs. Lots of funny moments combined with a good adventure story. There are 5 books in this series and I enjoyed all of them.
