Abstract

Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson books incorporate an ever-increasing breadth of mythical characters, figures and places. Hercules appears only twice: indirectly in a dream in The Titan’s Curse, and directly in the later book The Mark of Athena. However, he is mentioned on several other occasions, particularly as the modern demigods follow quests and kill monsters, some of which resemble tasks which Hercules undertook, especially his twelve labours.
