    "Very fun fictional book with several accurate references to Greek mythology. This is a fun read for teens and adults. The semi-vulnerable nature of the characters combined with their god-like abilities makes for the perfect balance of reality and fantasy."

    "Don't make the same mistake I did of passing these books over a seeing the movies. This stuff is the pinnacle of YA. Great characters and plot, and really cool uses of mythology. Gets a bit campy at times but otherwise, great. Couldn't put it down till I got through the whole series."

    "Interesting read, but there are much better books relating to Greek Mythology. The relation is not necessarily about Greek Mythology but a descendent of which. This is a story-book for young adults, but not a actual stance of Greek Mythology."

    "Based on Greek mythology and surrounded by the heroics and tales of the time, this fictional book accounts of romance, tragic loss and heartbreak. The main characters are all based on the Greek gods of yore and their own respective god powers. The god of love, Eris, is the main character, and works to bring together other gods for romance and love, fulfilling her ultimatel role in manipulating others to do her bidding."

    "I was looking for a cool, fictional tale that took place in the era of Greek Mythology and this book was a great choice. The book is great because it combines that classic and well known tales of Greek Mythology and combines it with teen drama and angst and has some gore and thrills too! I was worried the book would be trying to be like Harry Potter or something but it actually had a much more nuanced and adult themed tale in it. I was really happy with this book and now want to read the rest in the series. Must read!"

I would recommend this book to 8-11 year old girls because after that they think it is to girly or something else and they think it is for kid's but what they don't know is that it is so well written it is hiding the history of the Trojan horse in it's own way. I gave it five stars because I really feel you did an exceptional job writing the book, great job"
