Editorial Reviews


The Portland Book Review: Every once in awhile a book comes along that is so impressive it helps define a genre, and that is the case with City of gods: Hellenica.Every part of this book screams best-seller. Between the awesome concept, well developed characters, and beautiful writing, City of gods: Hellenica is destined to be read and loved by many. - Verdict: 5 Stars!
IndieReader: CITY OF GODS is Science Fiction work that has intricately defined characters moving the action forward in a well developed plot. Verdict: IndieReader Approved!Honorable Mention - Best Science Fiction- 2014 - Green Book FestivalReaders' Favorite: What a cool book! City of Gods: Hellenica is one of the coolest takes on Mythology/Religion that I've read in a LONG time. I loved how much I grew to feel (for the teenage characters), and the plot kept me reading long after I should be doing other things ... like eating ... or driving ... - Verdict: 5 Stars!RisingShadow: Jonathan Maas has imagined a fascinating world in this book, because he writes about a world which has been divided into different fiefdoms that are being ruled by ancient gods...It was especially interesting for me to read about Saoirse and her gift of talking to the animals, because I've always been fascinated by these kinds of gifts in fantasy and science fiction books. Good and interesting entertainment! - Verdict: 4 Stars!GoodReads Review: Great book! It's a bit of a cross between X-Men & Harry Potter - but with mythological characters. The book was well paced, with enough twists and turns to keep it interesting ... I was sucked in and read the book in one sitting! - Verdict: 5 Stars!
