Reviews

"Ryan's well crafted words convey the saga of divine succession powerfully and effectively. His selection and use of source material is brilliant and his own creative spin greatly adds to the enjoyment of the account. The unique personalities and motivations of Ouranos, Gaea, Cronus and Zeus move the story forward and greatly invest you in the outcome. Although the ending isn't exactly a surprise, if you're familiar enough with ancient Near-Eastern variants of the tale, it nonetheless took me totally by surprise when I finally arrived there. Very well done Ryan!

Traditional mythic images are additionally enhanced with elements most often associated with the genre of Sword & Sorcery." -- Hercules Invictus, Voice of Olympus Book Reviews

They do what they are intended to do and do it in a way that excites kids about classic literature." -- Chris Wilson, The Graphic Classroom (a resource for teachers and librarians) Jayakrishnan's illustrations are in the best traditions of the superhero genre. Comic readers will find themselves quite at home with his work.... The art work... eminently suitable to the subject matter. -- Jack Goodstein, Blog Critics
