Oh my goodness, this is an amazing book. If you like Greek Mythology, like I do, this is a must read. Strickland wonderfully incorporates the Greek gods into the modern world, as well as the personalities of their reincarnations.

I have to admit that when I first got this book I was a bit worried that it would just be a Percy Jackson spin off. However, Strickland quickly erased that fear. Despite having the same source material, this book is very unique and creates its own world. And I absolutely love the quotes and poems at the beginning of each chapter. It gives you little hints as to which god or goddess will be the center of the chapter.

One of my favorite parts is the characters themselves. Strickland gives them new twists that make perfect sense while still staying a surprise. I also love the conflict within and between the characters. Are the acts that they did in Ancient Greece still theirs, or are they new people?

All in all, I loved this book, and you should definitely read it!

It was a fine read, nothing special though. If it was going to be a TV show this book would be a 1st episode only - the one that shows you all important characters and a little bit of might-be plot.
Only the actual plot was there... in about last 10-15% of the book everything happened and then, all of a sudden, it was all done. With all that writing about characters I didn't manage to attach myself to any of them or even start to like them. The whole book just passed me by.

Just so you know, the gods are portrayed by realistic teens; abstinent, smart, dating, alcoholic, abused, egotistical, and sexually driven. Some more than others. Even though there is no graphic intimacy I would not let anyone under 14 read this. There is however a great story line which teens my age (14-18) will enjoy.

it was a good read. could been more in-depth, but a good distraction read. oIl like the stories that reimangine myth. This is not Percy Jackson, but it's good for older audiences.

It started off confusing if anything, so many characters and brief descriptions it was hard to keep everyone in order while reading. It was a good read, all the drama of the gods really do fit well with the hierarchy and drama of high school. Having it placed in and around my hometown is interesting but the author didn't utilize the details to really make lay it out to the reader.

Once it started to pick up though it was good. The obvious drama of June and Zach was painfully obvious as Zeus and Hera. Yes, Zeus cheats, clearly he won't change his ways, but in today's modern time you'd think Hera would know to ditch his ass. I did love Diana and her twin, Di was so funny and if anything I'd read more of this series to read more of her interactions with her 'Boo Berry' loving hamster. I would also like to read more on penny and Peter's relationship, see where it goes and what not, hopefully his situation sorts itself out and if he can win penny's heart, the right way this time.

I'm not sure if I will continue with this series, not that it was a bad first story but for the idea and themes used I much preferred reading Dark Descendants by Jenna Black.

One of the greatest book series I've read so far! A definite must-read! If you love Greco-Roman mythology, you will definitely love this series!

Amy Leigh Strickland's Olympia Heights: The Pantheon is a wonderful, action-packed, teenage-hormonal adventure that introduces a group of high school students who find out that they're reincarnations of Greek Gods. The characters, though many and introduced in a rapid succession, become individual and easily recognizable (not to mention likable) by the end of the book. The action is realistic and believable, and the danger becomes more and more personal and important as you turn each page.

Speaking of turning the pages, I couldn't stop! The action and dialogue keep the reader engaged, and the lessons taught by the characters merits and mistakes stuck with me all the way through. I must say, I'm interested to see where the friendship between Penny and Peter goes, and if any feelings eventually develop between Jason and Celene. Zack's plight to either win back the jealous June or go on on his own to spread his seed is also rather interesting. I was a big fan of the comedic Lewis, and would love to see more interactions between him and Diana.

All in all, I'm very interested in the series, and can't wait to read more! I hope all of my friends read and enjoy the book very much. It would make a wonderful stocking stuffer this Christmas for anyone with a youthful heart and a spirit of adventure.
