Summary

The gods, heroes, and monsters of Greek mythology come wondrously alive in this second volume of Bernard Evslin’s award-winning series Book two of Bernard Evslin’s extraordinary work opens with the story of Hercules, the strongest man on Earth. Son of a mortal woman and Zeus, feared and hated by Zeus’s wife, Hera, Hercules is condemned to twelve labors in which he must fight the world’s most terrifying monsters. It seems that the world’s mightiest hero may have met his match against the Hydra, a beast with one hundred heads that spew lethal poison. Other tales feature Atlas, the Titan condemned to bear the world on his shoulders; the hideous gorgon Medusa, who turns men to stone; the half-man, half-bull Minotaur; the Sphinx; and many more. Greek myths come to thrilling life in these timeless stories of love and revenge, sorcery and enchantment, in which gods and demigods, mortals, fiends, and demons battle between good and evil. It is a world where bushes become bears, the four winds go to war, and the Nemean Lion and giant crab Cancer strike terror into the hearts of all.

    What Would You Sacrifice for a Friend? 
    Scarcely six months after their epic adventure in The Hyrax Song, Journee and her friends find themselves on a hunt for the mysterious Zoe-Chai seed. The legendary tale of this seed had been kept alive for generations in the grasshopper world. Legend said that if planted, the seed could feed the entire kingdom and neighboring locust army forever. But where could they find it? And more impossibly, where could they plant it in the perfect location and under the perfect conditions with just a week until the required full moon and rare alignment of the celestial planets: Alzar, Tupa, Zader and Mias? 
    No matter how daunting the quest, Journee and her friends are ready to crack ancient riddles and sleuth out answers, no matter how dangerous the task becomes. There is only one thing certain in this adventure. It will be a test of courage, loyalty, sacrifice, and resolve. 
    This adventure story is inspired by the Biblical Proverb 11:25 (NKJV) and communicates the morals of sacrificial love, and the exceedingly rich life of a generous soul. 
    The Zoe-Chai Seed is a Middle Grade Fantasy Adventure with a Moral Twist!
