Pandora and her friends Alcie, Iole, and Homer are practically evil-hunting experts. Jealousy, Vanity, and Laziness are all safely in the box and they already know Lust is lurking on Mount Pelion, so this fourth task should be super easy.

Just one teeny tiny problem: the evil is hiding at a wedding that took place 1,300 years ago. Luckily, the messenger god, Hermes steps in

fantastic! in this Pandora book Pandy finally finds Dido! (Yay) but you know the story of the trojan war? well it how the trojan war began... you know Helen, Paris and the golden appple. BUT!!!!!!! its not all sugar and fluff!! beware!! an important character gets... well... how do i say this? um... lets say she ... uh.. visits... hades. i ended up cryin in the end. but then again... i cried when optimus prime died in transformors 2.
This was an excellent book, I find the Pandora books to be so funny.
Though in the end of this book a heart throbbing decision will have to be made. Someone must die. Who will it be? And what kind of god or goddess would force Pandy and her friends to such a limit. Well I think we all know who the culprit will be.
A dramatic twist to this book, so make sure you read the epilogue important details.... :-)

Pandora Gets Heart is the fourth book in the series, Pandora: Mythic Adventures. Pandora released many evils into the world. Now she and her friends are going on a quest to get all of the evils back into the box. In this quest they are to get back the evil, lust. Lust is hidden at a wedding that took place long ago, so with the help of the messenger god, Hermes, Pandora and her friends travel back in time to find lust. This is a great fantasy book I like to read when I’m bored. My favorite part ...more
so to be fair, i had to review this for my work and didn't read the first three in the series. i get the feeling i definitely would have gotten more out of it if i didn't jump in on number four. the series has a cute premise--young pandy brings the infamous box to school, accidentally lets out all the evils into the world, and subsequently must go one quests to retrieve and recapture them. one evil per book. having already gotten jealousy, vanity, and laziness back under wraps, pandy and her fri ...more

We all know the story of Pandora opening her box and releasing the evils of the world. In this series, each book tells the story of Pandy returning one of those evils to her box. This time it’s lust (middle grade friendly).

Now, I know you are thinking that the whole myth thing is going to be my favorite part of the story. While it’s way up there near the top, my favorite part is Pandy’s voice. She comes off as a real teen girl – happy, sad, serious, funny – her mood changes to fit the scene.

As usual, delving into the latest adventures of Pandora and her friends, has been a great enjoyment. From the opening scenes of Iole worrying about her friends having forgotten her special day - her Maiden Day (thirteenth birthday) to Alcie's selfless act to save her friends and further the mission to return all the evils back to the box. I enjoyed watching Iole begin to mature and make more of a place for herself with her friends, stand up for herself and take risks. It was good to see Pandy qu ...more

I liked the competition for the golden apple.
Like the first, this book is full of funny incidents with the gods of ancient Greece. The story was clever, but it is a little difficult to write a story all about the deadly sin of lust without making it unfit for the junior fiction set. Hennesy does a pretty good job with this, except when she doesn't. With that ambiguous description, read it before you hand it off to your pre-teen/teen daughter and make sure she's up to it.

The fourth book in the Pandora series. Pandy and her friends are after Lust. It is embodied in the golden apple that brought about the Trojan War, so they must travel back in time with the assistance of Hermes to steal the apple from Aphrodite and place it back in the box. Another charming installment in this series.
Very entertaining & girl-oriented take on Greek Mythology. This series would be good for girls who enjoyed Percy Jackson or the Cronus Chronicles. The idea of Pandora having to go on a quest to recapture the seven deadly sins is a good one, & handled well.
Dying,sadness,courage,everyone caring about each other and happiness. It was a great book. It had everything from adventure to gods. I recommend this book but read Pandora gets Jealous and the other 2 before reading this one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Still a good mix of adventure, humor, and heart. More and more serious consequences for the kids. And some clever use of ancient mythology to tell a story who's messages are very modern.
Omigosh!! I love this book series!! I think this was the best book so far. I love how Alcie's relationship with *wink* blossoms!!! Amazing...It made me cry but..SIMPLY AWESOME!

This has me in tears at the end, I can't believe that happened, I was so in love with the story and the characters and then the ending happened and I fell in love even more.
LOVE THIS BOOK! It is so much different than most Pandora books! The thing is, it is not just exciting.. But sad, too.

Cute addition to the series. Hoping this is one my daughter will enjoy when she's in the mood.
