Shannon's Review - The Crown of Zeus by Christine Norris

The Crown of Zeus by Christine Norris

Megan and her father move into a strange Manor in London. Making friends is easy for Megan. But keeping them alive is the challenge, after they are all magically stuck in a book of Greek Mythology and must find the Crown of Zeus to get out.

My Thoughts:
The book is action packed and flows pretty smoothly. Megan and her friends are thrown quickly into a world of adventure. I like that it was about mythology, but I'm more interested in what the other books in the series will be like because a lot of people have done the Greek theme, and those other books promise to explore less traveled territory.

I am giving this 4 stars. Not five because in some places it rushed the scenes together a little. If I could I would give 4.5 stars. Overall the adventure is very well thought out, and the setting is interesting. The characters are likable, and the creatures they meet connect in a imaginative way. I am excited to see how the rest of the series will be.

About the Author: Christine Norris is the author of three other books: Talisman of Zandria, Return to Zandria and The Ankh of Isis, the soon-to-be-released second book in the Library of Athena series.

Cool coincidence, I'm currently reading Bookweird with my daughter. So far, the main character has been stuck in three very different books...

The Crown of Zeus sounds like it would appeal to followers of The Magic Tree House Series or the Canadian Flyer Adventures.
