The Shadow Thieves
By Anne Ursu
Review: Can't get enough of the Percy Jackson series and Rick Riordan's books? But you've already read them all? Have no fear, you can move on to The Shadow Thieves, the first book in the Cronus Chronicles trilogy by Anne Ursu. This book has relatable characters: misfit Charlotte who tries not to appear to be trying to get others to like her and golden boy Zee, her cousin, who everyone likes. Zee loves football/soccer but leaves England to live with Charlotte when weird things start happening at home. Trouble follows him to America.
Suspenseful questions: Is the Underworld accessible through the mall? Who is Philonecron and why does he want to take over Hades?
