Summary

Elliot Hooper's troubles are far from over: his mum's health worsens, he's struggling at school and a bunch of anarchic Greek immortals have moved into his home - including teen goddess Virgo, who's in trouble with the Zodiac.

What's more, death-daemon Thanatos and his scary mum are at large. As even more immortal allies and enemies emerge, Virgo and Elliot must learn how to be heroes....

"Lashings of adventure, the Olympic gods as you've never seen them before and a wonderfully British sense of humour." ( The Bookseller, on Who Let the Gods Out?)

Utter brilliance

Maz Evans' books have become a staple for long car journeys in our family. Loved by 8 and 12 year old children and equally so by their mother! Moments of snorting laughter mixed with poignancy and all bound in a truly terrific story. Fast paced and full of unexpected twists. What more can I say? Brilliant!!

Bit of a letdown

Really enjoyed the first book, but this was nonstop emotional drama with a lot of repetition. Sadly the girl protagonist turned from interesting to a stereotype, which really is depressing in children's books. I'm hoping for an improvement in the next instalment, this was a real letdown from such a lovely start.

Brilliant!

This whole series is fantastic. The characters are both hilarious and, at times, poignant and the story romps along at a cracking pace. My 10 year old LOVES it & has listened about 6 times. Maz Evans reading is utterly brilliant and she brings so much life and humour to it. Her timing is impeccable; a real joy.

Man Evans performed the voices so well. My nine year old loved the humour. Very clever and hooks you in.

Very shouty

First of all I could only give this story three stars as I haven't listened to all of it.

I really enjoyed the first book in this series and was eager to continue the journey with this book. However, every single character seems to do nothing but shout, something which the author/narrator delivers with gusto. I've tried twice to get to the end but I just can't. It's a shame because I generally find authors have terrible reading voices but Maz Evans really makes the story come alive just, unfortunately, very, very loudly.
