An action-packed, mythological chapter book series from Tony Abbott!

Owen, Jon, and Sydney managed to rescue Dana from Hades' underworld...for now. But if they don't fulfill their end of the bargain with Hades, she might be headed back to the underworld. Forever.

As if that wasn't bad enough, some very creepy, very one-eyed mythological beasts have escaped from the underworld. The Cyclopes have taken over the power plant in Owen's town. If someone doesn't stop them, they're going to bring back all sorts of horrible creatures...

Stopping the Cyclopes is exactly what Hades wants Owen and his friends to do. But what chance do four kids stand against an army of mythological monsters?

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great fun. If I thought book one The Battle Begins was a race from start to finish, book two is even more so. This story continues on the heels of book1, with our four friends - Owen Brown, Dana Runson, Sydney Lambertti, and Jon Doyle. These four fourth graders know what is really going on. Loki has launched a war in the underworlds and it is spilling over into our world. Loki has one goal, to take over not just the underworlds and earth, but through the power gained in that process to take over Ragnorok. Somehow it is all linked to Dana Runson and her parents' research into Norse mythology. Soon the children have visited the underworlds again and they have managed to return yet again, but that is really just the beginning of their adventure. In a story with battles with Draugs, Loki and giant Cyclopes, this story races from beginning to end. Children will love the adventures and seeing kids their own age as heroes working together to thwart evil. It is another great book in a wonderful series by an amazing author.
