Elliot Hooper is back in the second book in the fantastic, adventure filled series from Maz Evans.
Poor Elliot is still having a tough time of it. Not only does he have a group of immortal Greek housemates who have sworn to protect him from Thanatos, Deamon of Death, but this time Thanatos has been joined by his evil mummy - so now there’s double the trouble. Elliot’s mum’s health is worse and teen goddess Virgo, is struggling to come to terms with her lack of immortality AND she’s having the worst bad hair day ever. All in all, it doesn’t make for an easy life. But if Elliot has any chance of making life better, for him, his mum and the world he needs to find the second chaos stone before Thanatos does.
Another high energy adventure with plenty of laughs and an amazing cast of characters – oh and a very welcome return from the Queen and her family make this an awesomely funny sequel that will have kids laughing out loud. ~ Shelley Fallows - You can also find Shelley here.
A Piece of Passion from Barry Cunningham, Publisher ‘What I like about the classical gods is that they are so true to life. Wild, naughty, emotional and unpredictable, they carry on a bit like us humans – but with superpowers! Of course, in this story our hero Elliot has some serious real life problems to deal with too, and so Maz Evans takes us on a funny yet thoughtful romp. Hold on to your pants because you are likely to lose everything else!’
Elliot Hooper's troubles are far from over: his mum's health worsens, he's struggling at school, and a bunch of anarchic Greek immortals have moved into his home - including teen goddess Virgo, who's in trouble with the Zodiac. What's more, death-daemon Thanatos and his scary mum are at large. As even more immortal and enemies emerge, Virgo and Elliot must learn how to be heroes ...
