The Olympian Gods have made it to the 21st century AD. We may not have heard much about them in the last two thousand years, but they’re still controlling what we humans are up to – or at least they think they are.
The reality is that the Gods are like us – they’ve got problems!
Zeus is still Top God on Mount Olympus, but he’s got issues with many of the younger gods. His brothers, Hades and Poseidon, have issues with themselves – they’re getting too set in their ways ruling the Underworld and the Seas; they probably need a job change.
But help is at hand from an unexpected source – we humans.
It’s surprising what a dose of good common sense can do for even the most powerful of the gods, especially when it comes from a couple of teenagers!

I gotta say, I'm shocked I enjoyed this as much as I did! I am a big fan of Greek Mythology retellings and this one was lighthearted and there were times I actually laughed out loud. What would happen if we were to modernize the realms of the big three? Well, you'll find out and you'll probably chuckle a lot too. I also appreciated how the author made Homer a librarian in the underworld. He does this for many of the characters in the stories which will make you chuckle.
I would label this more as YA rather than adult fiction. It's a funny, lighthearted, easy read. Although, there are mentions of Zeus' many lovers and 'dangly bits'.... but definitely appropriate for middle grade and above, in my opinion.
This was tremendously entertaining! Well done. I highly recommend reading when you need a break from reality.
This was a very light-hearted and fun read. It's not a super deep book, but I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. It's original, unique, and quirky. It made me smile and was well worth reading. I'd read a sequel in a heartbeat.
