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