They say that lightning never strikes the same place twice, but for Zach Jacobs, that just isn't true. It's hard enough being seventeen-- juggling school, football, friends, and teenage romance-- but Zach's about to find out just how complicated it can get when he begins to suspect that maybe he was the lightning. Teenage woes hardly seem significant when you've got lightning shooting from your fingertips and a couple of murderous Titans trying to settle an ancient score.
Olympia Heights: The Pantheon, is the first of a four book series under the Olympia Heights name.

Excellent book. i found it very hard to put this book down. Ms. Strickland did an excellent job luring the reader into a world of fantasy, heroics and everyday troubles that teens face. I cannot wait to read the next books. Ms. Strickland also captured the essence of each character and made it very easy to imagine what they looked like, and their personalities. It is an excellent read and you should pick up a copy!!!
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this novel. The author provided adventure, teen drama and angst, and even some supernatural flair. I loved how Ms. Strickland developed and described all of the characters in the book. I thought it was great how she matched her characters to the "Pantheon" of gods and goddesses. It was really thought provoking on how each individual displayed their "powers" but with a little modern twist. They way she described each character and their personality, I was able to imagine them in my head, and really visualize the story. I look forward to reading more of Ms. Strickland's books and I cannot wait to read the sequel.
Amy Leigh Strickland's Olympia Heights: The Pantheon is a wonderful, action-packed, teenage-hormonal adventure that introduces a group of high school students who find out that they're reincarnations of Greek Gods. The characters, though many and introduced in a rapid succession, become individual and easily recognizable (not to mention likable) by the end of the book. The action is realistic and believable, and the danger becomes more and more personal and important as you turn each page. Speaking of turning the pages, I couldn't stop! The action and dialogue keep the reader engaged, and the lessons taught by the characters merits and mistakes stuck with me all the way through. I must say, I'm interested to see where the friendship between Penny and Peter goes, and if any feelings eventually develop between Jason and Celene. Zack's plight to either win back the jealous June or go on on his own to spread his seed is also rather interesting. I was a big fan of the comedic Lewis, and would love to see more interactions between him and Diana. All in all, I'm very interested in the series, and can't wait to read more! I hope all of my friends read and enjoy the book very much. It would make a wonderful stocking stuffer this Christmas for anyone with a youthful heart and a spirit of adventure.
