Are there any books like Percy Jackson?

I'm a big fan of the Percy Jackson books, and now I'm really interested in Greek mythology and stories relating to Greek gods. However, I don't really like Roman gods/stories. Does anyone know of any books that are similar to the Percy Jackson books but not about Roman gods?
