Dh & myself DD have just finished the Percy Jackson series & loved it. Apart from Rick's other books which we have obviously stocked up on, is there anything else similar?

Time Riders is a fantastic series. Full of action, dialogue and adventure!

Different, but might she like Fly by Night - dd got it at the same time as the first Percy Jackson book, & liked both of them.

Also, has she read the Artemis Fowl books? Again not the same, but maybe the same sort of feel?

Forgot about the wonderful 'Skulduggery Pleasant'.

How old is your DD?
DD3 is enjoying The Fire Thief by Terry Deary which is also based on Greek mythology. I also second Time Riders which both DD1 and DD2 read on holiday and loved. She might also like The Roman Mysteries series by Caroline Lawrence if ancient history is her thing.
