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 allies and enemies emerge, Virgo and Elliot must learn how to be heroes ...

Elliot is just a normal boy. He lives on a farm with his mum and, oh yeah, a bunch of gods. After releasing Thanatos, daemon of death, can Elliot and his immortal friends find the chaos stones before Thanatos and his mum and save the world?
This amazing book was easy to pick up and impossible to put down! It was a lot funny and also a bit sad, it was well written and it’s a must for any reader – just ask my mum!
There were a couple of parts that were my favourite, both for different reasons. The first one made me laugh so hard and involved some singing and dancing outside a famous London landmark – I can’t say more than that! – and the other one was really emotional but it did make me a tiny bit happy too – again, I can’t say more than that but you’ll know when you get there.
My favourite character was Hermes because he made me laugh sooooo much but also because I liked how he looked out for Elliot like a big brother would. I liked how the story showed that it doesn’t matter that you’re not related to people, they can still be your family and look after you and want to make sure you’re OK. That was super bosh!

When this book came in the post, me and Casper were fighting (not actual fighting though!) over who got to read it first! I was lucky because Casper went out to his friend’s house that night and didn’t take the book with him so I got to start reading it. I hid it under my pillow before he got back! In the end, we both wanted to read it so much that we kept swapping over and reading a few chapters each.
I liked everything that Casper liked but I think that Virgo was soooo annoying! There are girls in my class like that and Virgo reminded me of them! My favourite part involved bazookas! It still makes me laugh when I think about that part!
Win a copy of Simply The Quest
Mum loves these books so much that we’ve ended up with THREE copies of Simply The Quest! We were sent a copy by Chicken House. Then Mum ordered signed copies of both books. And THEN Amazon sent us the copy of Simply The Quest that Mum had pre-ordered and forgotten about! So, this means we have a spare unsigned paperback and we’d like to give it away.
We would love to know who your favourite character is from this series. If you haven’t started reading this series yet, we would love it if you could recommend a children’s book to us. Leave a comment to let us know.
We’ll pick a winner from the comments on 24/08 (Mum’s birthday!) and we can only send it if you live in the UK.
