Legends: Battles and Quests by Anthony Horowitz

Don't mess with the gods. And if they mess with you? Run like hell . . .

Praise For Legends

Horn BookUnder Horowitz's hand, the tales from around the world have a casual tone, accessible language, dry humor, and just enough gore to keep reluctant readers going. Black-and-white illustrations add  some excitement and visual interest. San Francisco Book ReviewBoth children and adults will enjoy these fast-paced stories, and the tales of swords, battles, and clever escapes will keep even the most book-phobic kid interested through the end. It's one of those books with the kind of passion that reminds us of why we loved reading in the first place. . . . This book is well-paired with its twin release Legends: Beasts and Monsters
