Getting sucked into a whirlpool, sleeping in monster-infested woods, and battling psycho sea-nymphs was not how Hailey planned to spend her first year of high school. But when you’re the only Zeus in the world, life tends to get a bit complicated...
The Great Battle saw the world changed forever when humans killed the gods and absorbed their powers. One power was coveted above all others: Zeus’s. Thirteen-year-old Hailey Woods is the first Zeus in over a century. Unlike everyone else, she hates her powers because of an ancient prophecy that claims a Zeus will have to save the world someday.
Hailey doesn’t want to save the world. She wants to be a normal teenager, whose biggest dilemma in life is deciding what to eat for lunch, rather than training to become the ultimate weapon. Poseidon’s Academy, an underwater palace where her powers don’t work, was meant to give her that opportunity. But when she arrives, she discovers the sea-nymphs living there are plotting to resurrect the gods, and Hailey must find a way to stop them before they can enact the prophecy.
So much for normal!
"Fast-paced and neatly written, Poseidon's Academy is a powerful and gripping story filled with surprises. Readers will love the adventure, the intense action, the strong conflict, and the deft handling of character." 5 star review, Divine Zape for Readers' Favorite
"There are plenty of thrills along the way and author Sarah A Vogler describes the creatures and powers of ancient Greece beautifully. Overall, the snappy dialogue and exciting re-conceptualization of the Greek myths make Poseidon's Academy an enjoyable read for teens and pre-teens who love mythology, history, action and danger." 5 star review, K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite
"Move over Percy Jackson, Annabeth Chase, and Grover Underwood and make room for Hailey Woods in Poseidon's Academy by Sarah A Vogler! I have to say that this book did remind me a bit of the Percy Jackson series, yet I liked the way that it had a female protagonist and that the book did not have anywhere near the same plot or setting as that series. The author did a simply spectacular job in not allowing this book to become a rewrite or a mirror of another series, but instead made this story into a unique and compelling read." 5 star review, Sefina Hawke for Readers' Favorite
