In this concluding volume in the Corydon trilogy, which re-imagines ancient Greek mythology with the gods and heroes as bad guys and the monsters (the Gorgons, the Minotaur) as good guys, Corydon finds himself engaged in the defense of Troy. Readers unfamiliar with the first two volumes will find little emotional engagement with the characters, and the ending—and the severely telescoped events preceding it—will seem curiously flat. While there are few surprises here (Homer having already covered the Troy story), the battle scenes are stirring, and readers who have followed Corydon this far will want to see how his saga ends. Grades 6-9. --Michael Cart
