"...Echoes of Olympus brings us an alternate Ancient Greece-and really brings it to life. Fascinating characters and no shortage of battle and derring-do. More please!"
-Ed Greenwood (Creator of the Forgotten Realms)
War threatens. Intrigues stir. From the heights of Olympus, the gods look down on the world of men and find things not to their liking. What is a common soldier to do? Heliodas-purported to be the son of Zeus and a madwoman-desires to be no more than a soldier, a good one; to stand between Athens and the wrath of mighty Persia. Risking death and displeasure both mortal and divine, Heliodos journeys far to defuse the threat of war or fight it. Destiny is seldom simple, and neither is this path. Battles and intrigue and the fickle interference of the gods set him on a divine quest: to retrieve the sword of Zeus and thus become the hero of Athens.
Again, what is a common soldier to do? What soldiers do best...fight!

I enjoyed this book immensely, and I've been anticipating it ever since I first started hearing about it a few months ago. I'm a fan of heroic fantasy and Greek myth, and as stated in the front matter, this doesn't even attempt to be completely accurate, but as it turns out, it's much more true to its sources than many of the other movies and novels I've seen that attempt to do the same thing. When I read this, I rediscovered what it was I found so fascinating about the Greeks, their mythology, and their culture. I couldn't help but love the story we well. Very highly recommended. Also, I couldn't help but notice the three star review, and I'd like to mention that the other book, Echoes of Olympus (A Novella) which sells for 99 cents, was the one that is only the first 70 pages. This book is the full 300 page release.
