Reviewed By Arya Fomonyuy for Readers' Favorite
Olympian Challenger by Astrid Arditi is a novel that will delight young readers and fans of Greek mythology. The author has succeeded in creating or recreating a world where men and gods walk side by side and where the drama among gods can be filled with more cunning than a human has ever known. The writing is exceptionally fluid, fueling the already well-paced plot with great use of dialogues and descriptions. Olympian Challenger is a gorgeous read, as exciting as it is well-told.
About the Author
Astrid Arditi has studied at Hogwarts, ridden a dragon, swam with mermaids and flown to the moon. Recently, she traveled to Mount Olympus… She leads a double life: one of words and whimsy; the other one chasing her two young kids around the playground and kissing away booboos. She’s a spy, a princess, a unicorn, a wife, a mother and an author. Life is never dull in her messy home in Brooklyn, or in her dreams where she escapes as often as she can. She writes from experience, of course. You may not believe it, but everything in her books has actually happened to her…even if only in her imagination.
