Teen fiction; action/adventure. Similar to Riordan's Lightning Thief series and Terry Deary's Fire Thief series, Ursu's Cronus Chronicles also deal with the Underworld, and the revenge of banished Titan Cronus/Kronus. Her books are written for a more sophisticated audience, however, and have a bit of a slower start (less action, more musings of a young girl), so I would only recommend these to more serious readers.
