Recommendations for Percy Jackson fan?

Post by WolfyChan » 09 Sep 2019, 03:10

Hey guys! so I have been a huge fan of the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series by rick riordan and I was wondering. were there any books relating to Greek mythology or just mythology in general? Im trying to move away from the kids books into more fiction that is more appropriate for my age. (im 24)

so essentially im looking for books that are similar to the Percy Jackson books. I guess the term im looking for supernatural thrillers? stuff that has to do with mythology and monsters and gods.

any recommendation would be greatly appreciated. :geek2:

So there isn't a ton to do with mythology in them but a series that deals with monsters and things I've enjoyed has been The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher. They deal with Warlocks and Demons and things like that. They're pretty suspenseful and I find myself not being able to put them down when I pick up another one in the series.

There is also 77 Shadow Street by Dean Koontz that had a kind of entity/demon that I liked. He's actually a fantastic author if you want monsters. Some of his works are more horror-ish than you're probably looking for but he's a such a great story teller. I used to not like horror but then I found his books and can't put them down.

Not a series but Stephen Fry has released a new book called “Mythos” which is a retelling of classic mythology stories in the modern age.

It’s a brand new book as well! I’m pretty sure there are some signed editions floating about. Hope you enjoy!
