About the Author

E.G. Foley is the pen name for a husband-and-wife writing team who live in Pennsylvania. They have been finishing each other’s sentences since they were teens, so it was only a matter of time until they were writing together, too.

“E” is the 7-8th grade teacher of students who regularly use more than 10% of their brains, world traveler, ice cream connoisseur, and martial arts enthusiast. “G” loves big books and small fluffy creatures, and if she hadn’t become a writer, would have pursued a career as either a princess or a spy — or possibly both. With millions of copies of her eighteen adult novels from Random House and HarperCollins sold in many languages worldwide, she has been hitting bestseller lists regularly for over a decade.

This is book 2 of The Gryphon Chronicles. The gang is headed to Norway where Archie is attending the Invention Convention where he will unveil his flying machine and meet his scientific heroes. Jake and Archie get more than they bargained for when they meet Snorri the Giant. He accidentally opened a hole in the sky between humans and giants. The boys have adventures with giants and the residents of Valhalla. I enjoyed this book. I loved how the Norse gods, Viking legends and myths, as well as Norwegian myths and stories are woven into the story line. I liked watching Jake and Archie see the legends, stories, and myths come alive as they help Snorri return home and win his love. I also liked how the boys had conflicts and got angry with each other but resolved their issues as they worked together to help Snorri and get out of Valhalla alive. I look forward to more of the series.

THE GRYPHON CHRONICLES: JAKE AND THE GIANT by E. G. Foley is a delightful Fantasy/Fiction/Adventure for Young Readers ages, 10 and Up. Set again in the Victorian Era. #2 in "The Gryphon Chronicles" but can be read as a stand alone. Although, I would recommend reading book 1, "The Lost Heir". The adventure continues in "Jake and The Giant". Jake Everton, now Lord Griffon, has finally be re-united with his parents, and is coming to grips with his magical powers. When Jake's cousin Archie, goes missing, along with other scientists, Jake races to the rescue. He comes face-to-face with a Norse giant. Filled with Norse mythology, magical creatures, a flying machine, legends, and of course a bit of danger and lots of adventure. Harry Potter has nothing on Jake and his friends. A wonderful Historical fantasy for young and old readers alike. Another hit for this amazing author. Well done. What an engaging story from beginning to end with a feel of Steampunk, historical,Fantasy and Adventure all mixed into one grand adventure. BIG TROUBLE comes to Jake and his friends in "Jake and the Giant". Another must read! Received for an honest review from the author.
