I've never read the source material so I had nothing but Disney to compare anything Hercules-related to. That said, though, this was a fun book even without the comparison. I assume it would have been better if I had understood more about the world, but I didn't feel like it took away from the story.

This is a really important topic and a great book to meet the need. Social anxiety is so prevalent. We don't know how to hang out anymore, or to make friends. At least I don't. This book has good information and tips and I'm excited to apply some of the takeaways. If you struggle with social anxiety or know someone who does, pick up this book.

It all comes to a head. It's hard to give a review for a final book in a series without spoilers, but in short, if you've gotten this far and liked the first two, this one is worth getting. Struggles vs good and evil, powerful weapons, action, it's all here.

I think this series is written well for the audience it seeks to be read by. What I mean is that today there are a lot of young people who are put off by larger books and deep, granular descriptions. This book doesn't have those things, and for some that might be a turnoff, but you know when you see the book length that you're not about to read a Brandon Sanderson or Tolkien book. This is a good series for young adults who don't have time or attention spans to handle longer books and I think it meets them where they are.

This book was short, and felt short, but that didn't make it bad. It just didn't feel like a sweeping masterpiece. But I don't think that was what it was going for. It seems that the author was going for a well paced serial-type adventure and that's what we got. By not introducing anything mindbending, we didn't need to spend too much time really learning about the world. We already understood it mostly. That means we could just jump into the story. Good enough to recommend and continue with the series, for sure.

Hmm, I'm giving this a neutral review because I hope there will be a fourth book. If there is, this rating might change. But as of now this didn't make for a fully satisfactory ending to the series.

The length was better on this one. It felt more like a complete story. Still not perfect, I admit, but certainly enjoyable. :)

It was good, just short. It felt like a longer prologue than a complete book, but it set up the series well, I think.

The book wasn't perfect, but between the narrator's performance and the story, I enjoyed the book. Maybe it was missing something, but I enjoyed it.

I struggle with happiness. I really do. But I want to thank Ali and Frank for bringing this little book to market and making it accessible to me. It's a process, I know, but I think this is helping.
