Pretty promising start to a new series!

This is a great return to what I think is Michelle Pavers best style. If you liked her Chronicles of Ancient Darkness series, I think it would be difficult not to enjoy this as the formula is just so similar. Equally, if you liked this and haven't listened to that series, I cannot recommend it enough.

I'm not sure this book is of quite the same quality as the Torak books, both in story and narration. It's a tough act to follow though, and I think Toby Stephens does a very decent job on this. I will be looking out for the next one and hope it develops into another great series!

Feel like I've been sold an adolescent pup

With such a majestic title I thought I was in for a a full-blooded tale of Greek myths and heroes. Instead this story features two young adolescents of the period who meet up when they're separately cast away on a deserted island, and learn to respect each other and work together to get out of their fix. There's a pod of dolphins somewhere in the mix too. The language and storyline's aimed at adolescents, and although the author tells her tale imaginatively she does seem to take an age getting though every little adventure. I'm half-way through and not sure I've got the energy or enthusiasm to finish it. It's well read (as always) by Toby Stephens.
