Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up-Every seven years, nine Greek gods are called to walk the earth as mortals, hunted by the descendants of ancient bloodlines. Called the Agon, these descendants have the opportunity to seize an ancient god and take their power and immortality. Descended from Perseus, Lore left that life behind after her family was gruesomely murdered. Even though she's vowed to never return, the heroine can't pass up an opportunity for justice and revenge offered by a goddess. Throughout the story, Lore tries to figure out where she belongs in this fantastical world. The protagonist is bold, fierce, and powerful and takes nothing for granted. Her best friend Miles, who is gay, supports her every step of the way. This fast-paced narrative is filled with action, intensity, and gripping details. Most main characters are cued as white. VERDICT In this captivating tale, Bracken brings Greek mythology to life in a battle for ultimate power along with threads of friendship, feminism, and romance.-Paige Kostelyk, Crown Point Christian Sch., St. John, INα(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.


★ "... an adventure that ultimately is as richly woven as it is violently captivating. A ferocious triumph." - Booklist Reviews, STARRED REVIEW

"With ambitious worldbuilding and breakneck pacing (...) Bracken's lively take on Greek mythology is an entertaining joyride." - Publishers Weekly

"Bracken builds a rich world around a skeleton of ancient Greek mythology that is perfect to read on a dull weekend and sure to delight readers." - Kirkus Reviews

5.0 out of 5 stars Fresh and Yet Familiar!
By Yolanda S. Bean on January 7, 2021
I actually didn't realize that NetGalley had only provided me with a sample of this one, so I am actually glad that I fell a bit behind and didn't have to wait much for this one to be published so that I could read the whole thing! I really loved it! I have long been a huge fan of Greek mythology re-tellings and this one falls into that perfect spot of feeling both familiar and totally fresh. Set entirely in New York City, there's also a lot of love for the city itself filling these pages.

Titular character, Lore, is an easy-to-root for heroine - she's strong, feisty and works through her flaws as well. I really liked all of the characters - and while teen romances are predictable, this adds to the fun of reading this. The story itself is action-packed and this one quickly becomes impossible to put down! It's quite the page-turner! I genuinely enjoyed this! It works as a completely standalone read with a satisfying conclusion - but I admit that I wish that this was slated to be the start of a series, because I didn't want to say goodbye to the characters at all! I am definitely looking forward to reading more from Bracken in the future!

4.0 out of 5 stars Review - Lore
By Monica Khan on January 8, 2021
Initial Thoughts

I was so excited to get an ARC of this book on NetGalley. I loved the Passenger series by Alexandra Bracken and also love Greek Mythology. I started it right away.

Some Things I Liked

Mythology in modern NYC. I loved the nods to both contrasting elements. I loved the rich history and myths woven into the story as well as the backdrop of NYC and all it’s familiarity.
The opening scene. I loved the drama of the fighting in the opening scene. It really grabbed my attention.
The romance. I thought it was subtle and I actually really liked that about it. This isn’t a story of romance. It’s an epic tale of a hero’s quest to save the world from gods gone wild and there was a bonus sprinkle of romance.

One Thing I Wasn’t Crazy About

Density of the world building. The first 30% of this novel was HEAVY with concepts, names, and world building and it was a struggle to keep up. Despite having a robust glossary, I found myself constantly confused for the first 150 or so pages. Once I passed that hump, I really enjoyed the story, but it was a struggle to get into.

Series Value

As much as I love the world here, I don’t think there is much series value given the way the story ended. I will, however, say that I like Alexandra Bracken’s writing style. Despite the information dump at the beginning of the story, I would recommend this as well as her other books and I’d keep reading what she writes in the future.

Final Thoughts

I enjoyed this book. It was a race to the finish and this was the last book I read in 2020. I literally finished at 11:56pm and this was the book that pushed me over the 100k page mark in GoodReads. I’m glad I read it.


Recommendations for Further Reading

Passenger by Alexandra Bracken – if you enjoyed the writing style in Lore try Alexandra Bracken’s time travel duology.
Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan – if you liked the idea of Greek Mythology mixed with the modern world, look no further than this epic series.
