Dad's gut was so big that it wasn't crowded, even with the five of us down there. Of course, every once in a while, we got on one another's nerves. Poseidon was always trying to organize swimming meets. Hestia was always tidying up the place. Hera was the bossy one, always telling the rest of us what to do. But Demeter was definitely the weirdest. She was always going on and on about wanting to plant a little vegetable garden.

But, hey, we were family.

We all grew up in Dad's belly together.

When Hades and his siblings were born, their father, Cronus, Ruler of the Universe, swallowed them whole -- just because of a prophecy that said one of his children would be mightier than he was. Can Hades and his brothers and sisters overthrow their big, bad dad and take over the universe? It's sure to be a hot time, Hades!

User Review  - Mared Sian - Goodreads

Despite the (I'm sure) unreliable narrator, this is an entertaining take on the Greek myths – and I even learned some things I didn't know before. Read full review
