Summary

The third audiobook in an hilarious series centred on the Olympian gods, comedically and lovingly narrated by the author herself.

Elliot's life is spiralling out of control. He's been suspended from school, his ex-convict dad is useless around the house and his mum's health is worsening. What's more, the gods are determined to forge on with the quest for the third chaos stone. An unlikely, hilarious and heartwarming odyssey begins. But Elliot has heard of a mythical potion rumoured to cure all ills - can he save his mum, even if it means sacrificing the fate of the world?

The saga continues...

Great use of Greek mythology in the modern world, appealing hero.

4.5 stars.

I've enjoyed the first two books previously, and saw this available as an audiobook, read by the author.

This won't make much sense to readers/listeners who haven't read the read of the series. For those that have, the adventure picks up where we left Elliott and his Immortal friends. Mid-quest. His mum is still slowly deteriorating, his home still in danger of being taken away from him, his Godly friends still 'helping'.

Searching for chaos stones, we continue to get to know the Greek myths, with more characters brought into scenes, as Elliott desperately tries to save his mum and the world too.

Maz Evans reads her own work brilliantly, with great voices for a range of personalities. The story makes good sense in audio format, it's easy to keep up and the humour of a reader voicing the Gods is spot on.

There's a dark ending here, with continuation expected, hinting at what's to come. I'll be looking for the next book when it's published...

With thanks to Nudge Books for providing a sample Audible copy.

This book is hilarious!!

I liked the characters a lot, they were really likable and funny. The story was a really good idea, it was informative and fun at the same time which is usually a hard thing to do. I would recommend this book because it is hilarious and really interesting because there is so much I didn’t know about the Greek gods. The only problem was there is one important thing after another so I thought it could maybe slow down a little that’s why I gave it 4 stars not 5.
