The Last War of Gods and Men - Book One, Sword of Olympus, P.M

“Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned,” and Hera doesn’t like being rejected by Zeus or the other Olympians. Sword of Olympus: The Last War of Gods and Men, Book One is an extraordinary historical fiction by P.M. Hansen. He writes a very in-depth story which draws from mythology and creates realistic settings and characters for this era. Sword of Olympus is an intense novel and the author is very descriptive, ensuring readers understand the reason for the war, as well as the intricate genealogy of the royal families which is explained in the prologue. Although amused by sibling rivalry and jealous females, I readily bonded with Prince Macedon and other unusual characters who made this novel a delight to read.

One thing I really liked about Sword of Olympus: The Last War of Gods and Men - Book One by P.M. Hansen was that the author clearly knows quite a bit about Greek history, culture, and mythology. I do, too. So I was thrilled to read a piece of fiction that did not mess up that fascinating culture and mythology. I loved how P.M. Hansen wove such a multi-layered story in which you have a problem with knowing who the really bad guys are. You get to see the way the different sides think as you follow different characters (with a focus on Macedon after a while though). You see how the different characters develop and you can actually understand why they do things the way they do. It is a story about betrayal, love, loyalty, minorities, gods, wars, princes, and a new era. It is a long book, too, and nothing you should attempt reading in one go. It's like a very rich dark chocolate. You would like to devour the whole thing, but after a few pieces you know that you need a while to digest it. To me, the book was a daily evening treat and I enjoyed it very much. Take your time with it, because you'll regret it if you rush through this wonderful story.

In Sword of Olympus, we have the celestial struggle represented by Zeus and Hera, a husband and wife. Their struggle has reverberations in the mortal sphere and is seen in clashes between houses and kingdoms, particularly the House of Perseus and the House of Pelops. P.M. Hansen's Sword of Olympus focuses mostly on the struggle between the brothers Atreus and Thyestes of House Pelops as they betray each other, commit murder and adultery in their struggle for supremacy. The brothers are written beautifully. They both have good traits and bad and your emotions and allegiance will move from one to the other, keeping you on the edge of your seat.

Sword of Olympus: The Last War of Gods and Men is the first book in a series. Hansen obviously knows his Greek history and mythology and even if you are not particularly interested in ancient Greece, Sword of Olympus is still a good adventure. Sword of Olympus is fun and the best kind of adventure because everything is personal, very personal. What I liked most about Sword of Olympus is the perspective that Zeus, Hera, and the other gods of the Greek pantheon were very real to the ancient Greeks. Choosing which god would be your particular deity was a very personal decision based almost totally on personality. The conflict and struggle is not about ideas but about family, power, and relationships. It is an exciting story and P.M. Hansen tells it well.

Frostmourne is the sword of the Lich King. It appears on the cover of the Lich King expansion. “The wielder of Frostmourne will become the new Lich King”. The sword sort of looks like a combination of the Sword of Olympus and the Soul Reaver.
