convey a message Some are Sword of Honour Second To None designed to scare the living bejeezus out of you and some are meant for one and one thing onlyentertainment The Dig by Audrey Hart is not going to change the world or end life long suffering but what it willo is take you away from reality s harsh existence for a while Is this a bad thing Of course not Reading shouldn t be a chore and while it s self fulfilling to The Extra Cadaver Murder dive intoeep books like The Book Thief or The Storyteller from time to time because they ARE Perfect Girl Evolution Vol. 6 deep and meaningful sometimes it s necessary to reboot Ohear LordI sound like my husband One of the best ways to o this is with a book that is fun And what is fun than a bunch of pissy Greek Gods and a girl all hopped up on AmbrosiaNow while this book is in no way perfect She travels through time by way of a 7ft iPhone Really and oes have a few holes I Dark Ties (Broken Saints Society d REALLY like to fall in love that fast thatoesn t by any means make it bad Justuirky As a matter of factit was very reminiscent of Rick Riorden s Percy Jackson series in a let s throw every thing but the kitchen sink at this girl and see what happens sort of way It was funny in some places serious in others and without a Um Fogo Eterno doubt 100% action packedI think that with a little time and maybe a tad focus on theevelopment of the characters inside the story this could have been a great book Instead you have a fun little read that is sure to entertain you when you are feeling blue Just remember to not take it too seriouslyif you Lawn Boy Returns do you ll beisappointedMy overall thoughtthis would be a GREAT book for younger female audiencessay around 12 13 It will teach them to respect themselves as well as whisk them away into hot boy territory which let s be honestall 12 13 year old girls LOVEHappy Reading my fellow Kindle ites and remember if you can suddenly form the Grand Canyon with your MIND chances are you re not normal Norma from Normandy geezthat was lame even for me sigh I LOVED THIS BOOK Zeus is adorable I never ever thought that I would ever saytypethink that but there it is He s a hottie with a sensitive side that makes me want to ship him and Zoe until I can t possibly fangirl any Zoe is so strong internally She s a great heroine and I admire her selflessness and wonderful modern way of thinking The jokes were hilarious Every story I read about the Greek Gods Hera is always the nasty itch Always And this book is no Yolandas Genius differentI can t wait to read book 2 Ion t venture much into self published territory but I had to after reading the synopsis for The Dig by Audrey Hart Time travel Mythology Sexy Zeus Yes please But I ve got to say that I was really The Fairytale Hairdresser and Sleeping Beauty disappointed in this one While the MC had a cute spunky voice I just couldn t get behind the intense insta love the egregious historical inaccuracies and the mismatched plot and pacingFirst let me give you my schpeal on historical I tried really really hard to like this book I wanted to I wanted to so badly Around the point where our heroine Zoe was using her newlyiscovered powers to single handedly take The Light Beyond the Forest down the Hydra I found myself thinking Oh my God this is what The Goddess Test should have been Hallelujah someone answered my prayers I was excited here is a book about a modern girl who is told that she has to face a series of actual life oreath trials to maybe become a god or something IDK but look a HYDRA And sure there s a boy and instalove but she The First Mistake doesn t need his saving In fact she tells him to book it when she thinks there may beanger And sure there are some narrative and coherency issues but I can muscle through those if this turns out to be The Goddess Test that I ve been waiting forand then Zoe had finished the trials and we were only halfway through the book and things kinda went ownhill from thereBut to avoid gettingwell overly rant y we re going to look at this in terms of the story Angerous game as Hera rallies the gods against her all except for Zeus the beautiful winged young god who risks everything to save herOut of time and out of her element teenager Zoe Calder finds herself in ancient Greece battling against the power of the Olympians and the vengeance of

25 Stars So let me start off by saying I am a huge Mythology buff It s to the point where i wonder myself why i haven t sat own to write my own spin on the infamous Greek GodsI remember picking up one book of Percy Jackson and the Olympiansfinishing it and the second onebut by the time i reached the third book i couldn t take it anyIt lost me Why No ideait was probably the only bookmovie that tried to stick to the century old storiesyet it failed somehow uring the end for me With that being saidThe Digi m so thoroughly confused I honestly have no opinion I idn t The Penguin Book of English Verse dislike itnorid i like it persay Here are my reasons1 As stated before i am an avid historicalmythological nerd I feel as though some stories are so old and well known they just should not be touched I loved the idea of The Dig but i wasn t too hyped about the idea of all the Gods being viewed as stuck up snobby teenagers We just Seven Secrets of Happiness deleted an entire history with this book In almost every story that i ve ever readZeus is who he isZeusthe unfaithful hardly ever loyal unrepentant God of Thunder Yet in thishe is not seen as suchthatidnt bother me as much I thought the love between Zoe and Zeus were cutehonestly i liked the side of Zeus when it came to Zoebut i m getting track We ve just The Killer Cats Birthday Bash (The Killer Cat, deleted stories and stories and stories of mythology in 200 pages They ve obviously lived 500 years in this bookso why is Hera Zeus s girlfriendand why on earth is it that Zoe knew Hera as the Goddess of Marriage but it escapes her mind that Zeus has a girlfriend Why is it that Zeus and Hera have no kids When we knowarn well that everyone on Mount Olympus is related in some kind of way I The Force of Destiny don t fault Audrey Hart for the changes that she s made For some of you this may not be such a bigealbut for me it killed my fire for this book Another aspectThe Giant Iphonewas not even half way explainedwe still know nothing of itthere were things that just weren t explained as well I feel as though NOTHING happened in this entire book Zoe was transported back in timeshe The Glass Books of the Dream Eaters (Chapter 9 Provocateur) did 3 uick testswater fire air 4 if you include the hydraand then the rest of the book was mostly metaphors and reminiscing about things that in no way helped us understand how or why Zoe was transported to ancient greece with the power of the gods If we took out half of the random memories she brought onuring something as simple as a peanut butter sandwhichthe book would be 10 pages long The first page captivated me for some reason I immediately bought it after reading the first page I never How I Became a Nun do that But the rest of the book is exactly like those first couple of pages full of comparisons and too short a story She literally tells us how she feels about every single thing and how it all relates back to presentay Earthwhich was all finebut if you re going to fill the book with metaphorsplease add an extra 200 pages so that i can walk away feeling like i learned about her situation I m in the exact same spot i was before i started the book So assuming i assuming i remember to read book 2please give us a little background Right now i The Rose Tattoo and Other Plays don t know if Zoe was what she was simply because she found the small circularisk ojector if her history somehow already indicates that she would have been a god anyways I also The Undoing Project didn t enjoy watching how utterly scared andefenseless Zeus seemed He s the King of Gods I mean of course in every aspect of Greek Mythologyhis family goes against himbut they are First Flight (Dragon School damn well smart enough too it behind his back than to his faceknowing Zeus could literally smite them with a blink of an eye So many Gods were missingit was as if Mount Olympus only had 12 Godswhen we all know there were many missing Which is fine because hey this was only book 1 But she never even so much as mentioned the other Gods It s like she literally had no uestions She was the a lone leafshe just went wherever the wind took herSooooo to sum it all up This was not an awful book though i know my previous writing will have you raising your eyebrows asking me if i ve bumped my headbut it wasn t I am just an extremely biased i guess harsh critic because it is The Lone Man dealing with mythology Its a hit or miss for me It was a uick readi read it alli haven t refunded my moneythat s an extremely good sign for me Just if you are an A V I D mythology fango into this book with wary eyesif not and you re just here for the fantasy elementyou ll probably enjoy it 47 stars I liked the spin on the gods and goddesses it was interesting Zoe and Zeus were cute together I really like to read the next one Finally a female Percy Jackson I have been waiting and waiting and wondering when an enterprising author would hit upon the idea and I have finally found it Zoe is all the best of Percy funny spunky and prone to a lot of trouble which made for one great readAfter wandering into a forbidden temple while on a trip with her archaeologist uncle and aunt Zoe is transported to ancient Greece Really ancient Greece 1000 BC or so To find her way back she must travel to the oracle isn t there always an oracle and follow said irections Of course along the way she must endure trials on Mt Olympus rescue various creatures from estruction and get in a catfight with a teenaged HeraDid I mention she also meets and falls in love with a cute teenage boy who saves her on than once occasion Maybe because he s Zeus and like the god of everything His friends and girlfriend Hera are not happy with the arrangement and throw even The Amazing Adventures of Dietgirl deadly obstacles in the path of the star crossed lovers There is so much to like about this book Right away from the very first paragraph I felt like I knew Zoe and she was talking straight to me That kind of connection isn t often found in books and I relished it reading way past the time I usually give to myself and burning a fewinners in the process It has a great message in it for young girls and isn t just mindless Skills for Practice in Occupational Therapy drivel like many of the gi.

Rly books out there This is one heroine a young girl could really sink her teeth into and learn a valuable message about to boot namely that the trials and obstacles in life often teach us about what we are made up of and teach us what we want in life and what is really important The perfect combination of romance and adventureThe book is a first in a trilogy so be prepared to keep reading the first one ends in a cliffhanger that wasn t satisfying at all Now I just have to wait for the next installment Dig is perhaps the most annoying and ridiculous book I ever read And I read over thousands of books so this is saying something Of course there are tons of annoying books but none of them are as ridiculous as this one Oh by the way I m following the genres of Greek Mythology or storiesbooks based on Greek Mythology I m going back to Percy Jackson There is a bunch of fangirls and Percy Jackson fansDig ignores everything of Greek Mythology The author horribly bashed Greek Myth in the head and changed everything The gods became annoying insecured teenagers Hello They are thousands of years old and most of them especially Athena are much wiser than that Honestly if the Olympians were real they would had bashed Audrey Hart s head Athena especially That girl is toasted by the time Athena the goddess of wisdom and owls is through with her Then Hera is going to send cow poopZoe Calder I have always had a love of Greek mythology I Aloha Rodeo don t consider myself an expert on it or anything but the stories of the gods and all the crazy creatures has fascinated me for as long as I can remember I ve seen a whole lot of interpretations of the stories and the The Dig isefinitely one of my favorites All of our favorite gods are there Zeus Hera Hades Poseidon Aphrodite Hermes but they re human teenagers I really love this idea because I always felt like the gods seemed like big powerful teenagers anyways with their scrabbling over stupid things and falling in love with their own reflections Audrey Hart has incorporated all of the things we love about Greek mythology within the coming of age story of Zoe Calder and it s a fun rideZoe was Truths We Confess - Volume 3 definitely a highlight of the book I know there are a lot of introverted young adult protagonists but Zoe felt like the most genuine and realistic interpretation of this and I felt like she and I would get along She s smart and intuitive Sure she freaks out about somehow ending up in ancient Greece but sheoesn t whine about it for the whole book she Managing radical change does something about it Her insecurities felt real and much like how I felt in high school Sheoesn t have the same interests as her classmates and can t uite relate but somehow knows there s really nothing wrong with that At the same time Zoe s journey is a trip to find herself Though she knew she was strong she never had to really show it and she learns just what kind of person she isI also thought the relationship between Zoe and Zeus was well Love developed which is a rarity recently In true teenager fashion Zoe rushes into labels for what they are and thinks she s way in love than she really is but their real relationship not the one in Zoe s head moves at a good pace There s no insta love just attraction and their relationshipevelops over time spent together having a good time not brooding stares Zeus is also a very worthy love interest I m Mafalda 9 (LUMEN GRFICA) definitely looking forward to of him The Dig is a very fast paced and fun read At just above 200 pages you can read it in one sitting and be very satisfied with how you ve spent your last few hours It is packed full with action mythology and romance that all blend together for a great adventure and I can t wait for the rest of the trilogy A big thanks to Audrey Hart for contacting me and providing me with an advance copy of The Dig You can read reviews and other fun stuff on my blog Paper Cuts My reviewCoverI adore the cover It s cute and represents the story The little wings on the feet is CUTE I love how the way the title and the picture is set on the cover4 Forget me not flowers for the coverStoryIndiana Jones meets Percy Jackson with a sweet romance When Zoe first arrived in Ancient Greece the book progressed uite slowly with Zoe meeting some new characters and trying to adapt with her new situation I almostidn t enjoy it since I really wanted Zeus to appear and read the romance I know I know I m so silly for wanting the romance barely in the beginning already There s a character who Zoe called Blondie and I Monster Park! didn t expect he was going to be the main character I am surprised After Zoe meets with Zeus I am completely into this book I loved meeting the Greek gods and godesses as young adults about seventeen years old Even though the gods are remake by making them younger unlike the Greek myths illustration we ve seen with Zeus and his beard it is still true to the mythology like how Zeus likes toisguise as a regular mortal and he had a jealous wife or girlfriend Hera who became an antagonist in this novel I also enjoyed reading about the use of modern technology back in ancient times such as how Zoe uses her iPhone for compass to help her escape the labyrinth It s an interesting blend of modern and ancient times Zoe uses phrases like FB Twitter in the book and even singing Umbrella by Rihanna song with Zeus The book is filled with adventures and I really enjoyed it after Zoe meets ZeusCharactersI love every single characters in this book particularly Zoe and Zeus of course I love their relationship they are so cute together and their powers Their story of when they first met was simply funny and interesting Zeus being young compared to how we originally know the Greek myths make me like him a lot He seemed innocent kind and loving Zoe is also a very funny character who also has powers like the gods Reading about their relationship makes me really enjoy the bookOverallIndiana Jones meets Percy Jackson with a swee.
