When Medusa discovers an ad in her Teen Scrollizine
for the IMMORTALIZER, a necklace that promises immortality, this looks
like it could be her best shot at the two things she covets most: 1) to
be as popular as the four most popular goddessgirls--Athena, Aphrodite,
Persephone, and Artemis; and 2) to have her supercrush, Poseidon,
finally notice her. But when the necklace brings about popularity in the

up the games to everyone. Will they succeed--or end up watching from the

dealing with bullies like Medusa to a first crush on an unlikely boy.

social life at Mount Olympus Academy, where the most priviledged gods
and goddesses of the Greek pantheon hone their mythical skills.
AS PERSEPHONE'S MOTHER ENCOURAGES HER to do,

wants. But when she meets Mount Olympus Academy bad-boy Hades, she
finally feels she has found someone with whom she can be herself. He's
the first person who actually listens to her, and she finds
herself liking him, despite the fact that the other goddessgirls think

-- can he really be all that bad?

As the goddess girl of rumor and gossip, Pheme prides herself on being “in the know” and having the most up-to-date info on anyone and everyone at Mount Olympus Academy. To make sure that people really get her VIP messages, her words tend to linger in cloud letters above her head—just in case people don’t catch what she says!
But not everyone is thrilled with Pheme’s insider knowledge on everything MOA—including the Goddess Girls. Can Pheme ever be trusted? Or will this “gossip girl” find herself on the other end of the rumors?
Amphitrite is a mergirl with a big crush on Poseidon—but will his quirks make her fall out of like?
Ten-year-old Zeus is mystified (and super-annoyed) by the fact that he keeps getting hit by lightening. Every. Single. Year. He also longs for adventure, as he has never been far from the cave where he grew up.
Zeus gets his wish—and a lot more than he bargained for—when he is kidnapped by dangerous, giant Titans! In self-defense, Zeus grabs the first thing he sees—an actual thunderbolt he pulls from a stone that is covered in mysterious markings. Zeus is the only one who can decipher the markings, and sets off on a quest to rescue his fellow Olympians from the evil Cronus. Armed with his trusty thunderbolt (named Bolt, of course), Zeus is on an adventure of a lifetime—and a journey to fulfill his destiny as King of the Gods.
