Ares: Bringer of War

30 Apr

You’ve probably heard Gustav Holst’s Mars: Bringer of War,  from The Planets. This recording is seven minutes long, so keep reading while you listen.

Well, I just read Ares: Bringer of War a graphic retelling of the Greek god’s story, by George O’Connor.


Ares: God of War is the seventh book in the Olympians series. This book tells the exciting story of the Trojan War, and the Gods’ interference in this epic battle. War-lover Ares butts heads with Athena, goddess of military victory–and their conflict will have repercussions for generations to come.

This is a new series to me, and  Ares: God of War  is the first book I have read in it. Now I am anxious to read the rest. There are seven books in the series so far, all of which have received excellent reviews. They have a website that you can check out here.

This is a set of books that should be in any class that studies Greek Mythology, or that has kids with an interest in it. If you have kids reading the Percy Jackson series, these would be the perfect companion books for them.
