Olympian Challenger by Astrid Arditi (Review)

     In the modern day, the Greek gods are still around, and they want a new hero. Sucked into the insanity of Olympus against her will, Hope is a contestant to become said hero. She got sucked in while trying to save another contestant from drowning. Because of her good act, she gets chucked into the dangerous world of gods, demi-gods, heroes and monsters. To survive she will have to tough, determined, intelligent and quick-witted.
     Olympian Challengers could be described with one word; okay. It is nothing incredibly unique or exciting, but it was like eating candy: not good for you but fun to consume for consumptions sake. Hope was pretty generic, but was not a bad character per-say, she was just a cooky cutter character. As for the other characters, for the most part, Hope had two semi-interesting friendships, but one of the two still seemed pretty cooky cutter. I did enjoy the friendship with the self ship thief, since it allowed Hope to seem more moral and compassionate in comparison. Story-wise, the story did not really wrap up, making it obvious there is an intendend sequel. Because of this, the ending of the story did not really feel properly concluded and I was left feeling more like I had just finished a chapter, and had not been given a full book. In the end, Olympian Challenger was okay and I give it the rating of THREE AND A HALF STARS OUT OF FIVE!!!
