Continuation of a series that is already a best-seller with a strong alternate history setting!

The Olympians appeared a decade ago, living incarnations of the Ancient Greek gods on a mission to bring permanent order and stability 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 band of geurilla rebels armed with high-tech weapons and battlesuits. Calling themselves the Titans, they square off against the Olympians and their ferocious mythological monsters in a war of attrition which not all of them will survive!

James Lovegrove published his first novel at the age of 24 and has since had more than 20 books out. He has also produced a sequence of teen fantasy novels under the pseudonym Jay Amory. He is a regular reviewer of fiction for the financial Times ad lives in Eastbourne on the south coast of England with his wife Lou, sons Monty and Theo, and cat Ozzy.

Review Text

  • By Michael T on January 24, 2014

    After reading the first book ‘Age of Ra’ I immediately started on the next one, ‘Age of Zeus’. First let me say, wow, I thought I knew a lot of Greek Mythology but I had to google several of the characters that I had never heard of before.The pantheon trilogy is not really a trilogy. The books aren’t set in the same universe and don’t have any characters in common. In this one the Greek gods run the world like a benevolent dictatorship. Wars have been stopped, dictators overthrow, and defense budgets have been scrapped and used instead for social programs. The gods walk the earth, a will get into fights, shag whoever they want and indiscriminately kill anyone who talks back or protests their rule. They even have a god who monitors all the internet traffic. (Queue “This is not America” by the Pat Metheny Group)Like in the Age of Ra, people are chaffing at the rule of the gods and want to get rid of them, or at least have more freewill. The lead character has lost her husband to gods smackdown of an uprising and her baby to a miscarriage. She is recruited by a shadowy organization who’s goal is to kill the gods. The novel progress as the team is built and trained and given a mechanized suit like some out of GI Joe Rise of Cobra. The team first starts killing some of the ‘monsters’ like Cyclops and the Gorgon, before they are found of by the Zeus and company. Back and forth the battle rages as both sides suffer losses, with a final battle taking place in the halls of Mt. Olympus.Loved the book. Five stars. The structure was great, the pacing was fast. There were a few plot twists some by the numbers and some unexpected. James did a much better job of fleshing out the characters. Great combat scenes with some clever ways of killing the gods.In summary, I wish this were made into a video game. I’d love to place this. Now, on to “Age of Odin”..

    This was a great read. It took a different perspective than I was expecting but was very entertaining none the less. Toward the end I found it hard to put down.

    Much much better than and absolutely unrelated to book 1.

    The book was ok, but I was glad to be done with it. The action scenes are great, but the book was a bit of a slog to get through. About 400 pages in, I was ready to put it down and move on. I picked up four books in the series, but I'm not sure I want to start the third one if it is as laborious as this one was...

    Takes you in several directions but still ties it all together in the end. I would say a great read for anyone who loves Greek mythology

    This book was for my son, he loved this book. It arrived really quick-sooner than we expected. We are waiting to order more books soon.

    Second book in the series and a great one. I'm excited to read the rest of them.
