A Brief Guide to the Greek Myths is a book that contains a lot of fabled heroes, but it also holds stories filled with horror and chaos. One of these stories -- The House of Pelops -- focuses on the issues of honour, power, and sexual jealousy. In this story, a king named Tantalus tries serving Pelops (his own son) to the gods. This cruel act spirals into a chain of events that includes torture, revival, murder, and incest. Overall, it is one of -

In this story, another king named Minos angers Poseidon, so in retaliation, he instils an odd passion into Minos' wife Pasiphae. This lust drives her to be attracted to a bull. With the help of Daidalos, they are able to create a wooden bull that could fit Pasiphae in it. The bull took it for the real thing, and the inevitable happened. The po- 3mo

We get to understand what the character is feeling in that moment of time, and he addresses his characters using “he“, “she“, and “they“. If you like books filled with fantastical and borderline-insane tales, then this book is for you. 3mo

A Brief Guide to the Greek Myths is a book that contains the many iconic and vibrant stories from Greek mythology. One of the stories that are included in this book is The Odyssey, which follows Homer and his 10-year journey back home to his wife. Homer faces many mystical beasts such as the cyclops, and he also faces the wrath Poseidon - the god of the sea and waters. The legend of Atlantis is one of the stories I got to read in this book aswell.

Lance Tapang Atlantis was once a great city that was very advanced, but they collapsed due to the greediness and pettiness of their own people. The city then sank due to an earthquake, and has never been seen again. A large theme in this book is heroism. Greek mythology is filled with heroic figures such as Hercules, Theseus, and Homer. Both of them went through trials and faced off against mystical beasts, but they never gave up. They were praised by many af- 4mo

If you like books that contain wild stories filled with mystical beasts, action, drama, and fighting, then this book is for you. Each story is filled with detail and lore, and all these stories together create an amazing world. 4mo

The Death Cure | James Dashner

This is the 3rd book in the Maze Runner series. The book follows Thomas and his friends trying to take down WICKED once and for all. WICKED promises Thomas that they are close to a cure for the Flare Virus, but he doesn't trust them. Thomas has to team up with former enemies and witness the deaths of a few of his friends. The book is action-packed and fast-paced. If you like books that are about action, a dystopian future, and shady companies,

Lance Tapang then this book is for you. The point of view in the book is 3rd person omniscient. It is established by the author by the use of “he“ and “she“ when a character does something. Although Thomas is the main character, we also get to see how Newt, Minho, and Teresa feel as well. 2y
MissYaremcio Great work Lance! This trilogy seems to be a class favourite! 6/6 2y

Spy School is about a kid named Ben who is sent to spy school. He finds out that becoming a spy is harder than he thought. In school, he makes quite a few friends, but also a handful of enemies. The book is full of twists and red herrings. A big theme in this book is to never trust anyone, and it is present in the students Ben interact with. If you like books that contain a mix of mystery, action, and twists, then this book is for you.

MissYaremcio Great review Lance! If you enjoy this type of novel, let me know and I can point you in the direction of another great novel! 6/6 2y
