“Greek mythology-inspired, Lore is Percy Jackson meets Hunger Games in The Purge.”~ Under the Covers
Greek mythology-inspired, Lore is Percy Jackson meets Hunger Games in The Purge. To even the odds sort of speak, every seven years the Gods walk among humans as humans in a fight for power. The Aegon hunt is when the Greek God’s descendants have the chance to fight for a chance to be among the Gods. They kill a God and in return, they get their place and power. It’s a brutal world of survival of the strongest.
Alexandra Bracken did a good job with the plot of this story. Lore, our main protagonist has left this brutal world and does not want any part of it. Unfortunately, she is put in a very difficult situation and she has no choice but to join back in. The chaos and drama in this hunt makes it a good read. However, few of the scenes were predictable and it was easy for me to lose interest. When I was interested, the scene fell short. There was good build up but the climax just didn’t do it for me. I will admit that the fight scenes were pretty good and I love Lore and what she stands for.
As a whole, Lore would be a good read for younger readers who enjoy fantasy and Greek mythology. A bit of warning, there’s quite a bit of violence in this book.
