Olympians: Dionysos: The New God (Olympians, 12)

We rated this book:


This book begins from the point of view of Hestia, the Goddess of the Hearth. While in her point of view, it explains what Hestia went through during the time she was in her father’s stomach after he swallowed her. Soon afterwards, the point of view transfers over to Dionysos, the God of Wine. The book then follows Dionysos as he invents wine, and it explains the tragic results of that invention.

One of the stories is about how Dionysos falls asleep in pirate territory and gets captured. One of the pirates recognizes Dionysos as a god and insists that they set him free, but the rest of the pirates think he’s crazy. Dionysos is offended and summons a jungle to sink the boat.

This is a very well put together book. The illustrations are very fabulous and give you a perspective inside the story. This is a very good book, and it a great final book in the Olympians series. I am sad this is the last! I would recommend this book to everyone who is interested in ancient myths.
