Series: Lightning Road Book #2 (#1)

By Donna Galanti

278 pages – ages 9+

Synopsis- Joshua is back in another book! When he and his friend Charlie are brought back to the land of Nostos, where the heirs of the Ancient Greek gods control realms, they are needed to rescue their friend, the new King Apollo, from the Queen Artemis. But all is not what it seems when they themselves get captured and a cherished ally turns traitor. Is there any hope of Joshua and Charlie getting back home?

What I Thought- This was a thrilling sequel to Joshua and the Lightning Road! Ms. Galanti really carries on the spirit of the first book, while also making it different. Joshua grows as a character, coming to terms with being the Oracle. Almost all of the characters changed throughout the story, and you really begin to care for them. The story starts off with a bang, kickstarting the latest adventure. The book has a few deep themes that the characters explore, such as loss and true loyalty. This was a really well-written installment in this series!

I give this book five out of five bookworms!fivebooks

    Great review. The cover vaguely reminds me of the first in the Percy Jackson series, although that might just be me fixating on Greek mythology + lightning bolt. Either way, looks like the series is progressing nicely!

      It does look similar, I will admit, but after the Percy Jackson series flooded the markets [pun intended], that is sort of to be expected. Don’t get me wrong though – the stories are very very different! 🙂
