    A quick and fun read. But... This volume is very focused on the game Karen and her friends enjoy and later on how it gets translated to a real world version. For readers who play online collaborative fighting games, they'll probably connect better with volume two than I did. I found the heavy reliance on the game a bit tedious at times. http://pussreboots.com/blog/2022/comm... Privileged Home Labyrinth 006699 A quick and fun read. But...

Karen and her friends at Mt. Olympus Junior High are back, and are super excited to start a newspaper. Karen is still settling in with her father, Zeus, and often likes to play an online game with her friends back home. She thinks she could write a column about gaming, and introduces her new friends to the one she likes. There is an odd player who crashes their game and doesn't play fairly, but they aren't able to block him. When they investigate, the IP address is at their school, in the basement. Years ago, the basement was used for training but now is somewhere students never go. When the group investigates, they get involved in a real life game. Herms brother Jeff is missing, but the teachers don't do anything, so Karen and her friends are looking for him while trying to make their own way out of the basement so that they can get their newspaper out. Will they manage to survive and solve the mysteries? Strengths: I am a huge fan of any book that can cleverly incorporate Greek and Roman mythology, and this does a good job of giving young gods distinct and updated personalities. Zeus is such a great character, and he talks to Karen the same way I talk to students; I wish we had seen more of him! The school newspaper process is not overly detailed-- we see the planning and then the final product. The main focus of this book is the video game type adventure. Given the popularity of the Tor Minecraft novels, I can see this being a big hit. Weaknesses: You can tell that the students at my school have relaxed the dress code too far; after months of seeing them in nothing but hoodies and pajama pants, the characters in this book all looked like they were dressed like teachers... twenty years ago! Few females have bangs anymore, but most of the characters did. Don't know that this will matter to young readers, but there's always something about graphic novels that distracts me. At least this time it wasn't their noses. What I really think: I am debating purchase, since the first volume hasn't circulated well. Will my video game fans read the first book, even if it doesn't have anything to do with video games? That said, video game fans will love the gaming details, which are similar to Hansan's A Video Game Ate My Homework.

    I think that this book was so much better than the first. The story was a lot more interesting and the overall plot with the game was a good idea. The artwork was great to look at, especially the maze scenes. I'm a sucker for a labyrinth-inspired story. Also, the whole newspaper idea was interesting. I will say though that I find it strange that we have Greek God and Goddess characters in this story like Athena, Apollo, Aphrodite, Ares, etc. and we don't get them really using their powers.

I will say though that I find it strange that we have Greek God and Goddess characters in this story like Athena, Apollo, Aphrodite, Ares, etc. and we don't get them really using their powers. There was so much opportunity for it in this one and they just didn't. Also, Ares is nothing like his Greek mythology counterpart. I was actually surprised when Karen was introduced to him in the story because I was expecting someone completely different. And again another child of Zeus that is not a child of him in this story. Though I will say the description of him at the end of the story does state it, unlike the others. I did like how the characters all worked together throughout the maze to find a way out of it and to help Ares find Jeff. I just think that we could have got so much more out of all of the Gods and Goddesses in these scenes than we did. This could have introduced some of their powers from mythology. We did get strategy from Athena and archery from Artemis but the rest just seemed to be there. This was definitely a more enjoyable volume than the last and I do think that I would pick up another one in the series if more were to come out. I've always been a sucker for a Greek Mythology series and I think that this one is a cute one that younger readers would probably enjoy quite a bit. *Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for my ARC of the book. All opinions are my own*

    Graphic Novel I received an electronic ARC from Clarion Books through NetGalley. Delightful sequel to Cooke's first story of Karen and her relocation to Mt. Olympus.

Karen struggles to figure out what she wants to write about until a troll named M1nat4ur interrupts her video game with friends from her former home. She decides to track M1nat4ur down to end the problems. The group adds more friends and venture into the basement where no one goes. Readers see them work together to make it through the maze, find M1nat4ur and bring him into their group. The artwork is highly detailed and well drawn. Readers can study the background details several times and still find new connecting pieces.

    Thank you to NetGalley for providing a copy of this in exchange for an honest review. I really liked this book! I knew this was a sequel and have yet to read the first one. I definitely want to read the first one now and I hope that the series continues. Not only was the story good but I loved the art as well. It was easy to read and I had a hard time putting it down. I would recommend it to kids and adults. It would be great for anyone wanting a quick peek into Greek mythology or those just beg Thank you to NetGalley for providing a copy of this in exchange for an honest review.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. This is an amazing book about Ares’ brother that disappeared. Luckily they find him in the basement in a maze. The maze is something special, it is from a video game. They make it out of the maze and all is well. I loved this book so I would recommend it to 9 and up. I would definitely read it again.

    I don't know why I keep trying this writer, she disappoints every time. I guess it's the artists she works with that keeps me trying because the artwork is always pretty cute, but the stories are just so uninspired. If Cooke gets any better going forward I won't know because this is her third strike for me, so she's out. I don't know why I keep trying this writer, she disappoints every time.

    A fun continuation of the series. I really like how they are retelling the old Greek Myths. It will be interesting to see what happens in the next book.
