But if it helps you to know your Greek gods, and survive an encounter with them if they ever show up in your face, then I guess writing all this down will be my good deed for the week. So begins Percy Jackson's Greek Gods , in which the son of Poseidon adds his own ...

Princeton University Press, 2014
