And so the time has come to say goodbye to Elliot, Virgo and the crazy collection of Gods, Daemons and other entities that have made this series of books such a must-read for so many people. Throwing us straight back in where 'Beyond the Odyssey' left off, this book is an emotional roller-coaster and one that you aren't sure if you want to get off and have a break, or just ride on through to the end. You will laugh and you will probably cry (several times) as Elliot and the gang struggle with all the situations thrown at them by the truly wonderful (and mad as a hatter!) Maz Evans. Wonderful story-telling that makes you want to turn the pages and heart-wrenching choices that make you want to give the characters a hug and tell them it will be alright. Reading this aloud to children will be an absolute joy, as I just know that Ares (the God of War) will require my very best Sean Connery! This is one of the best series of books I have read in a long time and I can not wait to see what Maz comes up with next.

For a debut book, this was a really well-researched adventure story. You can relate and empathise with the characters as you join them on their adventures, both at home and in the Himalayas. It will be great to see how they develop over the coming books (hopefully). Adventure, time-travel and some hint of a love interest have made for a wonderful story from Clive Mantle.
