Zeus’ Warriors Is “an Addictive Treat!”


Zeus' Warriors cover_Small

Michael Smith from Mike’s Film Talk has posted an amazing review of bestselling author Michael West’s new Legacy of the Gods novel, Zeus’ Warriors.  Here’s a bit of what he had to say:

“This was a brilliant third installment to this ‘page turner’ series.   It is literally impossible not to attempt reading all of the book in one sitting…All of West’s characters connect with the reader…The Legacy of the Gods Book Three: Zeus’ Warriors was well worth the wait.  It is still set against an international backdrop and carries the story forward with an admirable momentum…Do not miss this third installment in the series…an addictive treat that will leave readers clamoring for more…Make sure you read this third visit to West’s wonderfully weird world.”

Synopsis for Zeus’ Warriors:

Zeus’ warriors, the defenders of humanity, have suffered terrible losses.

Presumed dead, Earl Preston has been forced to retreat into a forgotten underworld beneath New York City, but he is still far from safe. Hades’ disciples need only to recover the two remaining crystal skulls — ancient vessels of indescribable power — and their dark quest to return the vanquished gods to earth will be all but complete. To save civilization as we know it, Earl must rise to confront his greatest challenge yet, but this is a fight he cannot win alone.

Trapped inside an alien environment, Alan Everson and Kari Hannigan must put aside their differences and work together to help a gravely injured Carol Miyagi — a woman they both claim to love. Theirs is a journey to discover the secret of life itself. And they may not like what they find.
