To the world Resistance has proved futile and now humankind is under the jackboot of divine oppression Then former London police officer Sam Akehurst receives an invitation too tempting to turn down the chance to join a small ban. This is an adapted review from my blog The detailed version is available here intro Showdown of Clash of the Titans and Crysis in a modern eraBest part The depiction of Greek gods and mythological beasts as well as the fight against them the revelation of how they came to be the brains and detective deductions of the protagonist straight cut into the story with little dallying in the beginning ample use of English idioms coupled with good writingNot so best part Systematic and orderly death of the TITANS is too old schooled really the TITANS are the first to successfully thwart the gods gods that destroyed armies seemed too easily defeated an ending that is too ordinaryThis book is a totally awesome combination of mythology and sci fi mated with page turning thriller and relentless actions that blows your mind away So profound is the story that my first experience with Lovegrove s The Pantheon triptych is enough to compel me to return for the others of the same seriesAdrenaline pumping action the novel may be the deities were only discussed in the first half of the book showing them in sidelines flashbacks and even a show of power that made the gods well god like And this made me wonder how could they be so easily defeated by the TITANS even with the high tech suits of the latter Of course Lovegrove did not earn my stars for this book by leaving this detail out What was lacking is the fact that almighty as the gods were they did not really brought all of their power to bear on the TITANS making them easier kills in the latter half of the story If scenes of majestic show of power were drawn out and then defeated through brilliance of the TITANS were depicted then I will give than my share of stars to the bookLovegrove s writing style leaned towards the dark and gritty type The Age of Zeus is not a story filled with hope or joy even though certain sections of it are devoted to that A sense of fatality even hopelessness shrouded the story showcasing his mastery over the shadier side of a story To readers who spurn the sunshine type of story with their overabundant optimism bordering on unrealistic Lovegrove s dark style is for you

The Age of Zeus

Continuation of a series that is already a best seller with a strong alternate history settingThe Olympians appeared a decade ago living incarnations of the Ancient Greek gods on a mission to bring permanent order and stability. This book was a lot of fun We follow Samantha Akehurst who lives in a world where the greek pantheon stepped back into the limelight 10 years ago and took over the rule of the planetSamantha is now offered a job on a secret private task force to take up arms against the gods and take back the worldThis all sounds like the set up for a Michael Bay movie and of course there is a lot of over the top action to be expected when humans in battlesuits suare off against godsBut James Lovegrove delivers than just an action adventure His characters have believeable personalities and their own motivations for what they are doingHe also raises some interesting uestions For example the world is uite a safe place after the gods took over crime rates have diminished and there aren t wars any cause the gods are able to stomp down any opposition So the uestion of how much freedom we would be willing to give up to have a secure society is always imminent in the bookThere are other underlying themes as well but I don t want to go into too much detail here to avoid spoilersOverall the book was a satisfying adrenaline ride that took its uiet moments at the right time It was also very different from Age of Ra which I ve read 1 2 years ago so Lovegrove is not simply doing the same book just with other gods I m looking forward to read the remaining Age of books by James Lovegrove and see what he has in store for other pantheons

D of geurilla rebels armed with high tech weapons and battlesuits Calling themselves the Titans they suare off against the Olympians and their ferocious mythological monsters in a war of attrition which not all of them will survi. Second book in the author s Pantheon trilogy though both books so far work as stand alone I don t know if the third book will tie into the others but I doubt it Again alternate time frame I think I enjoyed this book even then the first one It starts about 15 years after the Greek Pantheon takes over the world and is fairly fast paced after about a third of the way in The first third of the book is the technical aspects and the author left me with a sense of child like glee in the mechanical aspects of describing things which was neat All sorts of interesting twists and turns make for a fun read

    I finished Age of Zeus by J Lovegrove which is a very fast read despite its almost 700 page bulk; in the same thematic with Age of Ra but this time with the Olympians taking over humanity Age of Zeus is uite different from Ra though it is closer to what I expected Ra to be with a mixture of low bro comedy mythporn says it all with titles that are hilarious in a sick way so to speak though there is no explicit language beyond thos
