              Gods and Warriors is a fantastic book. At first I wasn't very interested in it because so much was going on. I really wanted to focus on one thing but all of a sudden something new was happening. I tried to stick with it and was very happy that I did. It all started to flow and the characters became so meaningful to me. I really reccomend this book to kids who enjoyed the Percy Jackson Series and kids who just want to sit down and read a great book.
