School Library Journal - 11/01/2014 Gr 2–4—The god of war marches forth in this latest installment of the series about the Olympians (portrayed here as children) and their attempts to escape their vengeful father, Cronus. This time, Ares takes the spotlight as he attempts to rightfully reclaim the spear of fear, a powerful weapon that fell into the wrong hands. This is an irreverent series (which SLJ previously called "a fun read…[for] those still too young for Percy Jackson's adventure"), brimming with action, relatable characters, and hilarious kid-friendly dialogue. - Copyright 2014 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
