SCIENCE FICTION REVIEW: The Age of Zeus - James Lovegrove


The Olympians appeared a decade ago, living incarnations of the Ancient Greek gods on a mission to bring permanent order and stability to the world. Resistance has proved futile, and now humankind isunder the jackboot of divine oppression. Then former London police officer Sam Akehurst receives an invitation too tempting to turn down, the chance to join a small band of geurilla rebels armed with high-tech weapons and battlesuits. Calling themselves the Titans, they square off against the Olympians and their ferocious mythological monsters in a war of attrition which not all of them will survive!


The second novel in Lovegrove's Age series and one that takes a different look to the original this time with the Greek Pantheon. Well written, beautifully creative and above all a story that really will satify the reader. Lovegrove’s talent really does explode onto the pages as the consequences and actions of the few affect the masses creating a thought provoking tale. A top quality read and whilst I haven’t always loved James’ writing I really think he’s got something special with this series.
