O'Connor ventures further into Greek myth with this portrait of Poseidon, one of the most powerful of the gods. One highlight is a callback to Zeus's battles in the first volume of the series -- a reminder that these myths really do all tie together.

O'Connor continues his Olympians series and it continues to be good. Although I didn't like the portrayal of Theseus in his myth, he acted very selfish and uncaring most of the time as opposed to how most legends described him. The art for the sea and the labyrinth was very good. And Poseidon is quite a mysterious character; questioning his role among the gods and resenting his brother Zeus but at the same time accepting his fate and believing his chosen power is fitting. I can't wait for the next book in the series.
