What if Hercules wasn’t the hero everyone thought he was?
His daughter, Lyssa, knows just how cruel he can be. But she has left that life behind, and now her battered smugglers ship, the Alastor, flies under everyone’s radar - just how she likes it.
The Gods have a different plan for her though. They’re about to break one of their only rules and grant a worthy hero a chance to win the ultimate prize - immortality. And Lyssa and Hercules are two of the lucky heroes offered the chance to compete.
Twelve gods, 12 realms, 12 trials. And for Lyssa, they’re about so much more than an eternal life. They’re about facing the monster from her past and stopping him from becoming truly untouchable.
She never wanted to let the world know that she inherited some of her father’s immense power. But maybe it’s time to show them all. How else can she compete with giants, centaurs, demigods, monsters, warriors, and the strongest man in Olympus?
You’ve never heard Greek mythology like this before....
Too many vantage points
This has too many character vantage points. It takes the reader in so many different directions...it gets confusing I had to stop listening after chapter 4. If there were only one or two it would be ten times better
This is an interesting and fun series of books. I really enjoy stories with Greek Mythology and I liked the twists the author put on some of the characters in this series.
The books focus on Hercules, his daughter Captain Lyssa and the rivalry between them. The two are in a competition to gain immortality and each book follows them through the trials they have to complete.
Their tale is filled with lots of action, suspense and surprises. Book three ends with a bit of a cliffhanger and now I can’t wait to find out what book four has in store for Captain Lyssa and her crew.
