I've always been a fan of mythology so the Percy Jackson series is right up my alley. In this tale, we see Percy along with Thalia and Nico (children of the big three - Poseidon, Zeus, and Hades) tasked with finding the Sword Hades that has been stolen and if it reaches the Titons they will be able to control death and thus defeat the Gods.

Love these stories.
