4.0 out of 5 stars Ante's Inferno, 20 Aug 2013
This review is from: Ante's Inferno (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Desperate to hide from bully Florence and her gang, twelve year old Ante sneaks into the school's forbidden organ loft. When Florence follows her, Ante makes a life or death decision that plunges them both into Hades, the Underworld of Greek myth. Filled with strange creatures and terrifying landscapes, the Underworld is a frightening and dangerous place but to escape Ante and Florence must journey through the heart of Hell itself...

Suitable for 9-13 year olds, this is a great introduction to epic stories and hopefully a springboard for creating interest in Greek mythology. For those who are familiar with their Greek Myth or Dante, there are plenty of familiar faces and favourite tales included, alongside some more modern upgrades!

While having a fairly simple narrative style and characterisation, the story is fast paced, creative and fun but also provides some serious messages about friendship and hope.

If you're looking for other great reads involving Greek myth and fantasy I'd also recommend Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson/Olympians 1) while The Last Ghost: A Belladonna Johnson Adventure (Belladonna Johnson Mystery) is great for ghosts!
