"I've read and reviewed Nice Shot, Cupid, the fourth book. I liked this one better than the fourth one. I still find it irritating that Hades refers to his dog Cerberus as Cerbie and Persephone as P-Phone. Hades is the Lord of the Underworld, so it really irked me to read that but overall I did enjoy the story. Also, for the most part, I enjoyed the narration of Hades. Some of the betrayals of the gods and goddesses are, in my opinion, way off based. I know that it’s a retelling, but I would have liked to have seen some of the traits that people would expect based on the myths.
I liked that it had a glossary that included information about the Gods and Goddesses mentioned. It also had discussion questions that adds to the book. I do believe kids will enjoy the series, but if for some reason they are looking for more of a pure myth, I recommend Myths and Legends by Anthony Horowitz.
