This is the first book of an exciting debut trilogy from Tobias Druitt and it's a definite must-read, so be sure to check out the second book, Corydon and the Fall of Atlantis. Set in the time of the Greek Myths the book follows Corydon who is born with a goat’s leg. In his travels he comes across sphinx, gorgons and other mythological monsters and befriends them before taking on Zeus and the other gods in an epic battle. This book is guaranteed to inspire those with a keen imagination.
