Which is worse: Having to start life over, or being eaten by a Minotaur?

The Library of Athena, Book One

Thirteen-year-old Megan Montgomery’s world is falling apart. Her father’s promotion means leaving her whole life in New York behind. She finds herself transplanted to a huge, lonely manor house in the English countryside, with no one for company but the distant staff. Her new school only adds to her misery—neither the girls nor the teachers seem to like her.

Then Megan meets three girls who actually talk to her instead of about her, and at first she thinks things are getting better. But the girls seem more interested in the strange rumors that the house is haunted. Desperate to make friends, Megan invites them to sleep over for the weekend.

A discovery of a cryptic poem, a key and a diary written by the builder of the manor—an eccentric archaeologist—turns the sleepover into a treasure hunt. Clues lead the girls to believe the Parthenon holds a great secret—and suddenly they find themselves sucked into one man’s version of Ancient Greece. The only way home is to find an object thought to be mere legend.

If they survive that long.

Although I have not read the book, I am definetly looking forward to it. I to enjoy the Percy Jackson series ad for those Of you that do as well I would recomend other books by Rick Riordan or an Egyptian mythology series which is just as good as greek mythology, Theodosia and the serpent of chaos.

I am a huge Percy Jackson and the Olympians fan, so I was afraid that The Crown of Zeus would be another Greek mythology cliché. But I was pleasantly surprised by this story. The book was a little hard to get into but the ideas to the story was refreshing. The plot was very solid, but if you know the Greek stories then the book is predictable, but with Christine Norris' own twists. The main protagonist, Megan, isn't a very strong character but her friends make up for it.
