Summary

The Olympians appeared a decade ago, living incarnations of the ancient Greek gods on a mission to bring permanent order and stability to the world. Resistance has proved futile, and now humankind is under the jackboot of divine oppression. 

Until former London Police Officer Sam Akehurst receives an invitation too tempting to turn down: the chance to join a small band of guerrilla rebels armed with high-tech weapons and battlesuits. 

Calling themselves the Titans, they square off against the Olympians and their ferocious mythological monsters in a war of attrition which some will not survive.

loved it

great time. When reading this book the chapters flew by so fast so I was happy that listening to it still felt like the chapters went by fast. Great book can't wait for the age of Odin.

disappointed

I absolutely love the other books in the Pantheon series, but this one is my least liked. the "Big Twist" of the story just doesn't sit well with me given how the other books are written. I enjoyed just about every other aspect of the book besides that glaring plot point.

Not Bad

Read the book before and it was a delight. Didn't remember the end, but now I can see why. Good story, but ending seems preposterous. Characters contradict uber intelligence toward the end.
