Olympian Challenger by Astrid Arditi
Plot: Hope has a crappy life but at least she has her mom. Except her mom has Dementia and she is losing her. Until an invitation arrives, only none of her friends can read the words. After diving into the water to save a boy she ends up on Olympus. Now in order to return home she has to fight and win. But will she be strong enough to beat the trails? Every myth you have ever read is true.
Review: I got this from Netgalley and honestly I wasn’t sure what to think when I started. But about 1/3 of the way through I was hooked. I felt for Hope and the other contenders. I laughed and cried along with them. The author did such a fantastic job of creating this world that I wanted to be in it, well not really because there is a lot of blood. The fact that there is a back story upon a back story is awesome. I have to say that if you enjoy mythology this is probably going to be a new favorite for you.
Should you read? Do you enjoy mythology? How about overcoming all the odds?
**This title is set to be released on May 1st, but if you have Netgalley you can request it.
