Reviews

"A thoroughly delightful book."

--Jules Wagman, "The St. Louis Post-Dispatch"


"Each story is written eloquently and with sincere enthusiasm for the narration of these myths. . . . Highly accessible."

--"Library Journal"


"Electrifying. . . . Freeman brings the contentious, devious, shape-shifting, revengeful gods and goddesses, from Zeus and Hera on down, to towering life, recounting their violent exploits with verve and clarity."

--"Booklist"
