This book is the story of a half-blood- part mortal, part god. This book is really good if you want to learn the basics of the gods and goddesses, as well as some gossip based off of the Greek stories (did you know Aphrodite was cheating on her husband!?)

Mythology is still influential in today's time almost as much as it was in the past. Myths can be used to help explain certain phenomena or reasoning to individuals. For example the Greek myths about the 12 gods. It is meant to explain the seasons, weather, the sun and night, even life and death, and in some cases war. Even some American folktales or myths such as the Boy Who Cried Wolf are used to get children to understand certain concepts like why lying is bad or why you sleep.
