4.0 out of 5 stars Great, but not as great as Age of Zeus, 5 July 2011
By 
This review is from: Age of Odin (Paperback)
I suppose the title of my review (not as great as Age of Zeus) depends on your perspective. Personally I thought AoZ had more action and was faster paced, whilst Age of Odin (AoO) had a slower build up with intermittent action until the finale. Whilst, as I said, it was great and I am sure any fan of Lovegrove will love it, it didn't quite do it for me as AoZ did. There were a few "cut away" scenes that this book could have done without and the ending left a bit to be desired (especially the final epilogue which I didn't enjoy at all).

That being said however, this is truly picking faults where there are few. I love this "trilogy" of books and Lovegrove's style of writing is easy to get on-board with. His characters are as cool as always and he puts an interesting spin on traditional mythology. Definitely worth a read and I still gave it 4 stars, although in my opinion thrill seekers will get more out of his previous instalments.

Happy reading!
