There was a time when I was crazy for Percy Jackson books and aggressively looking for its read alike. Then, I found an article on Vowelor which recommended me to read The Sea of Trolls by Nancy Farmer for the Books like Percy Jackson. And, here I am adding this books series in my recommendations!

It is a story of Jack and his sister from Saxon village who were kidnapped by berserkers in 793 A.D. They were taken to the Ivar’s court by Viking Chief Olaf One-brow.

4. Sweet Venom by Tera Lynn Childs (Medusa Girl Series) 

Tera Lynn Childs is the bestselling young adult author. So, if you are specifically looking for books like Percy Jackson for adults, then Sweet Venom is perfect for you among all other books.

The book narrates the story of three heirs of Medusa who needs to be together and follow their fate. These three girls lived in different locations and look absolutely similar to each other.

It’s enthralling to see how story unfolds the life of Grace, Gretchen, and Greer and reunite them for a bigger purpose.

5. The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan (Kane Chronicles)


I think it would be best to read other books by Rick Riordan after reading Percy Jackson books.

The Kane Chronicles is set in the time period of ancient Egyptians. It tells the story of two children; Carter and Sadie who had lost their mother. They have been on the trip with their father Julius Kane who as per to his promise took his children to the museum.

The life of all three changes when Julius accidentally summons the God of Evil and was kidnapped by the Gods. Now, Carter and Sadie sets on to the dangerous journey to find their father.
