"Why'd she come here? Why'd she come to you?"A cloud passed over the sun, casting a long shadow across the gardens. "Hope, I suspect," said Holmes. "It seems I am known for discovering answers when events appear desperate."

The tales of good and evil still bring warmth to this now 37 year old boy cum author. i remember reading the tales of the gods and greek mythology as a young boy and i believe helped shape the imagination i have.

This book gives me a chill and a satisfying feeling that transends back to those days as my eyes would hungrily read every tale and fable. This book has given me great delight to read and listen to via audible and the narrator gives the listener the tools required to let their minds and imagination step into its world and experience the myths for themselves.
