Hephaistos: God of Fire

Hephaistos: God of Fire Review

Thrown from Mount Olympus as a newborn and caught by Thetis and Eurynome, who raised him on the island of Lemnos, Hephaistos had an aptitude for creating beautiful objects from a very young age. Despite his rejection from Olympus, he swallowed his anger and spent his days perfecting his craft. His exquisitely forged gifts and weapons earned him back his seat in the heavens, but he was not treated as an equal. His brothers and sisters looked down at him for his lame leg, and even his own wife, Aphrodite, was disloyal, Witness Hephaistos' wrath as he creates a plan that’ll win him the respect he deserves.

    I'd never have thought I would like it this much: this is acutally the only 4-star rating I've ever given to O'Connor's. Hephaistos's never been of one my favorite god but the author managed to bring ...
