Product Description

  The Pyramid is baacckk! Well, actually, it never went away—but it had seemed to be inactive, still sitting in the middle of Chicago but no longer growing and wiping out buildings as it grew. The Krin device would have been thwarted, if things had been left as they were—but a V.I.P., who knows too many state secrets to be allowed to be missing, was left behind in the world of Greek mythology. So a power-mad Washington bureaucrat has press-ganged several of the survivors of

This second book in the series is less fun than the first.

First, it involves Norse mythology. I'm not as familiar with this as I am with Greek/Roman mythology, so, once they got past Odin, Thor and Loki, the names just jumbled together. The authors crammed too many characters into the book, and too many of the pantheon of gods sound so similar as to make it difficult to keep them separate.

Second, the subplot seems a heavy-handed criticism of Homeland Security, an overzealous government reactio

The sequel to Pyramid Scheme takes place shortly after the first book. Our heroes are adapting to life on Earth, or back on Earth as the case may be, when agents from the newly constituted Pyramid Security Agency (PSA) decide to start operations in the mythworlds. Needless to say, things quickly go awry. The PSA embodies all the worst about hastily created government agencies, and is a clear reference to the Homeland Security Agency as a kneejerk reaction to 9/11. Our heroes find themselves not ...more

A power-mad bureaucrat manages to send a team into the Krim pyramid to rescue a lost official. The problems escalate when they try to get survivors of the first adventure to return to Myth-Greece with them. The wrong survivors accompanied the partial team, but they landed in Norse mythland rather than Greece. No our intrepid band of punsters have to figure out how to survive Ragnarok, defeat Odin, get Thor to stop drinking, reform Loki, and get home. Plenty of adventure, strong characters, and i ...more

I didnt finish this book. I got this from library to discover a new author. I hadnt realised this was book two in a series so found it difficult to determine some characters and some storyline. It was enjoyable in parts but their was lots of mythology references which made it hard to follow. It wasnt until I was half way through I realised there was a glossary but id lost heart at that point to keep reading.

I loved this one. The only problem I had was I picked it up at random, and didn't realize it was the second book. It took a bit of getting used to because in the beginning I was frustratingly out of the loop, but I really enjoyed it anyway and would definitely pursue the series. Somewhere between a fluff book and a meaty one, I feel like I stumbled on a gem.

Disappointing. Not nearly as good as the first book. Too many Norse god-sized plot holes. Story: 2 stars. Appendix explaining who all the Norse mythological character were: 4 stars.
