I guess I'll be the first to write an actual book review: Edda, Saga, and Epiv were all amazing books. My personal favorite was Saga, but you should read all of them. I think tha Edda wrapped up the series well. Conor Kostick is a great author.

Sorry I'm late. I was almost done last night and hit back and didn't have the will to stay up and type it again. The next part will be at the Divergent series book 1. This part will be in Jose's p.o.v. On with the story! --- We were a few feet from the ground and stopped. We were hovering there and just dropped to the ground. I looked around and everyone looked confused. Odyn stood up slowly. "We're not done yet!" She collapsed clearly she'd overexerted herself. John and I helped her up. Alexandra reached into her pocket and pulled out a small bag with a single square of ambrosia. She fed it to Odyn and soon enough she was up on her feet. "Well does anyone have anymore ambrosia?" We all shook our heads. "Well now what?" I asked. Julia stepped up with a look of confidence in her eyes. "If we make it to the edge of Tartarus we can use the exit Marcus used. It was the entrance Orpheus originally used to get to Hades." "Wait didn't it only lead to Hades?" Sam asked. "It turns out the it leads deeper into Tartarus. We could use that to get out of here!" "I hate to be Mr. Negative, but I can sense where the exit is," Sam said. "We have to travel through the heart of Tartarus and to the end. We're not far from the heart now though." Max stepped forward and seemed to take charge. "I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm not dying down here!" "I'm with Max! We're not done yet!" I said with confidence. "Hey don't count us out!" Shawn said with his arm around Kayla. Odyn stood up rubbing her neck. "After saving us from that fall we're making it out of here." "Yeah we are!" John said. Cary nodded with him in agreement. "We're going to make it!" Harriet said. "We've got this!" Alexandra added. "We can do it!" Emily said. We all looked at Sam. "What?" He said confused. "You're the only one who hasn't said anything." He did the unexpected. He laughed. It seemed to echo through the emptiness. "Now I know why I love this group! You all just take the worst part of the situation and turn it right around," All of a sudden a Drakon came up and roared. Everyone drew their weapons! "Let's do this!" Everyone charged and attacked the drakon. One thing was certain we were going to get out of here. --- Sorry it's a short part but I liked the way it ended. Hope you liked it! - SK

This a great book just like the other 2 books inthe series and if youre thinking about reading them do it. But can someone whose read the book please tell me what happened to Nathan. Hes not mentioned at all in this book. I mean i know he wasnt that important but they mentioned Milan and Athena so I thought it was odd they didnt mention him. Did something happen to him in Saga that i missed. If you know please leave a review to tell me. Thanks.

Hey kid, hunger games was good, but it wasn't good enough to start a book clan over. If you ever see this, "anonymous" I just want to say that clans, especially yours, can go shove it.
