I started reading this without any idea what was going on in this world so I was a bit lost in the beginning by the return of the Greek gods. The world setting became very clear quickly and that is when the fun started.

Admittedly at first I was put off by the using guns is cowardly theme and thought I was going to dislike the story. But as I continued to read and discovered the depth of the story and it's characters I was extremely intrigued and couldn't stop reading. All of the characters seem

Olympia is a mixture of well crafted emotional intent, strong male characters and the fickle attitudes of Grecian religion. As a mythologist myself, I found Kris Kramer's take on the gods to be accurate and beautiful. The Pantheon has always been serendipitous and Anthony's experience makes him an overachieving angry Everyman. A killer with skill, reason and heart. The prose is fantastic and flowing. The settings took me to a future dystopian world and I found life breathed into even the ...more

What an interesting book for me! I very much enjoyed this book. I think this author maybe on to something here! I am a big fan of mythology. I also enjoyed the futuristic feel to this book. Wild right, Mythology and futuristic? You have to read this book for yourself to find out what you think. Thank you to Kris for sharing! * I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review*

Anthony lives in a world ruled by the Greek gods. He decides to join the army and fight for his country but along the way he realises that the world isn't as he thought. This was a great mix of the ancient and the modern. I love Greek mythology and it was interesting to read about the Greek gods in this context. Well written and enjoyable. I would recommend this book to people who love fantasy and mythology.

Very interesting mix that threw me a bit at first. I had to continuously readjust my mind set from ancient times with the gods, to a story line set in the future revisited by the Greek gods. For my taste, it was more of a 3.5, but it was a good story with lots of action. This will especially appeal to those who enjoy strong, male characters who deal with adversity and challenges.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
