Book 1: The Temple of Mount Olympus
When the mighty god Zeus gives his daughter Athena a little mechanical owl for her birthday, she is overjoyed and names him Omicron.

Book 2: Voyage on the Argo
Omicron’s quest to prove his worth and rejoin the goddess Athena continues as he meets Jason and the Argonauts on board the famous ship, the Argo.
Surrounded by the finest Greek warriors, Omicron wonders what on earth Zeus is thinking. Surely the fearsome Argonauts don’t need the help of a small mechanical owl?
But all too soon the Argo enters troubled waters, and Omicron must find the courage to face the deadly dangers ahead. Will he ever return to Mount Olympus?
Book 3: The Gorgon’s Head
In his third adventure to prove his worth to the gods and rejoin Athena, Omicron finds himself fighting alongside Queen Myrina and her fearless tribe of warrior women known as the Amazons. Sent to protect Pandora and her mysterious box, the Amazon warriors will surely fight off any danger.
But this time their enemy is far more powerful than any foe they have encountered before. And with Hades making trouble, Omicron will find his faith in the gods shaken. Will he ever return to Mount Olympus?
Book 4: Riddle of the Sphinx
In his fourth adventure, Omicron is desperate to return to Mount Olympus and his goddess Athena. Whilst Zeus forbids Hades from making trouble, Omicron’s problems are far from over as he befriends Chiron the centaur and his boy warrior students. When Chiron is called away, Omicron is left in charge. Safe inside the centaur’s giant cavern on Mount Pelion, no harm can possibly come to the boys.
But beyond the waterfalls and forest that surround the cavern lies the deadly desert. And hidden in the sand a dangerous creature waits. Will Omicron be able to protect the students? And will he ever return to Mount Olympus?
Book 5: Eye of the Cyclops

With the evil Hades threatening to destroy Mount Olympus, Omicron and his friends must travel deep into the Underworld to save the goddess Athena and the Olympians.

As the mechanical owl joins forces with old friends to defeat new foes, will Omicron finally prove his worth to the gods? Or will his battle to save Mount Olympus all be in vain?
