My rating: 5 of 5 stars

My heart is still racing from the adrenal rush from this story. One of my favorite topics is Mythology. I love the gods, demi-gods, and the history around them. Luciana Cavallaro is a mastermind. She has created worlds for her characters to come to life. The absorbent amount of details paint a vivid picture that one can see. There is everything you would expect in a historical fantasy story: adventure, action, gods, mythology, drama, prophecy and relics. Her characters fly off the page which makes the story all around awesome. Evan is in the 21st Century world. He was taken to Ancient Greece. He needs to complete some tasks for his father Zeus. That is how he will return to the 21st Century. Will Evan complete his tasks? Will he survive the journey? I highly recommend reading this heart pumping story to find out the answers to these questions and many more adventures that are within the pages of this book.

The Labyrinthine Journey (Servant of the Gods Book 2) by Luciana Cavallaro is a Historical Fantasy that I absolutely loved reading. One of my favorite genres is historical and I’m a sucker for anything mythology so this book was a must read This my first read by this Author but I’m definitely going to go back and read the first book in this series. This story is about Evan and he’s searching for some sacred relics for his father to take him back to the present. While on his journey he goes to battle with mythical creatures . Can he find his way back or will he be lost in history? Find out what happens next in this epic story. I highly recommend.

This is the second of The Servant of the Gods series, where the protagonist Evan, who is time travelled back in time has a mission to retrieve the second relic which is instrumental in wiping away the Greek Gods. It is about Evan’s journey to retrieve the relic with few of his companions and the high priestess. They encounter lot of dangers on their way and finally in the Labyrinth they have to face the fiercest of the beasts, the Minotaur.
I had not the read the first book, but nevertheless, the second book gripped me right from the first page. I love Greek mythology and I enjoyed reading each and every page of this book. Many familiar characters and names pop up in different parts of the book, the Greek Gods (major and minor), the Greek heroes (Jason, Herakles), mythical creatures like Harpies, minotaur, priestesses and queens and also the Titans.
It is very gripping novel and you can never even slip a page lest you miss a finer detail. It also moves back and forth in time, back to ancient Greece and forward to the 21st Century where Evan actually belongs. It is full of twists and turns. I enjoyed reading this book thoroughly. I am planning to read all the sequels. A great read !

“The Labyrinthine Journey” was an interesting read. The most notable feature of this book, to me, is that it is an intense, high-action book. It is often hard to find a “good stopping point” for the night, due to the constant action (which let’s face it… no one is complaining about that). In the beginning, I was little lost since I did not read the first book in this series prior to this one. However, I will say the author did a good job “filling-in the blanks” as the story progressed. Given this, once I got into the flow of the story, I easily saw how this can be a stand-alone book. I originally suspected this to be a Percy Jackson twist, but to my surprise, it had a very unique plot to the reason for collecting the god-saving relics which Evan (the main character) was seeking. I have never been great at history, but from what I remember, it seems the author is well-learned on topics involving Ancient Greece and Greek mythology. I would recommend this book to any historical fiction fan.

The Labyrinthine Journey by Luciana Cavallaro is the second book in the Servant of the Gods series. This is a really interesting story with historical fiction, Gods and Goddesses, and a man from the 21st century on a quest to find a sacred object. Even, the son of Zeus, has to find this object before the beginning of Christianity. The characters are interesting and if you like history and mythology this will be a good read to you. I liked that the author took mythology and placed it in the context of the beginning of Christianity. Everything is well planned out and exciting to read. The story has a good flow and kept me from wanting to put it down. I look forward from reading more from this author in the future to see what interesting stories she brings to life.

The Labyrinthine Journey is book two in the Servant of the Gods series. It could stand on its own as the author does a good job of giving you tie-ins to book one. Although, this story is so good, who wouldn’t want to read the first book???

As a person who loves mythology, this book captured and held my interest. I felt like I was right there in the story with the characters. The world building is fantastic and the descriptions in the book bring everything to life. The Labyrinthine Journey is a colorful adventure that you will not want to put down!

This is the second book in the Servant of God’s Series.

The adventure continues as Evan (Evandros) and his companions carry on their search for the relics to save the gods from Christianity. They have found one and are on the journey to find the second one.

Their journey is met with plenty of challenges which they have to overcome. Evan knows he needs to find the relics so he can return home to the 21st century.

Its a great book full of myths and legends which are more real than anyone imagines. The author describes the places in great detail that you can actually imagine you are there in that time period. Where myths and legends become reality.

The Labyrinthine Journey by Luciana Cavallaro is jam packed with so many of my favorite things that I don’t know where to start. Certain historical fiction definitely pulls me in but throw in the heavy hand of Greek Mythology and I am plum in heaven. This book follows Evan as he makes his way in a whole new world of ancient Greece. When I found out his father was Zeus I may have been a tad jealous. Evan is on a mission to find lost relics and help keep the mystical creatures and powers of the world he is in alive and strong. I loved the adventures we followed him on as he would battle through anything with such fervor that you could feel his emotions come off the screen of the kindle as you read I am very much looking forward to seeing what else may be available by Luciana Cavallaro, and to get my hands on the next book in this series!

The Labyrinthine Journey is the second book in the Servant of the Gods series by Luciana Cavallaro. It is an epic fantasy filled with adventure, ancient history, mythology, gods, drama, danger, prophecy, ancient relics, and more. Even though this is the second book in the series and continues Evan’s adventure, Ms. Cavallaro does a great job of ‘catching us up’ on the events in book one- so this can be read as a standalone if that’s what you wanted, without feeling lost in the story.
Ms. Cavallaro’s attention to detail and obvious love of ancient history really brings this story to life. She proves to be quite knowledgeable about this era- and all the wonderful descriptive detail and snippets of history really add to the atmosphere and feel of the story. It was so easy to be ‘in’ the story, and ‘see’ everything as it was unfolding. I love ancient history, and that was one of the things that drew me to this book.
Evan is a 21st century architect who has been transported through time, back to ancient Greece- where he finds himself on a mission from the Gods. This quest, to find the ancient relics and save the Gods, proves to be quite the epic adventure. It will test him like nothing before, and he will need to dig deep if he is to succeed, and survive.
Looking forward to book #3!

Thank you, Luciana Cavallaro!

The Labyrinthine Journey (Servant of the Gods Book 2) by Luciana Cavallaro. This is the 2nd book in the Servant of the Gods series and its so good. In this installment we find that Evan’s new life is in ancient Greece and he’s afraid he will never see his home again. Evan is born to divine parents but he is completely human and his enemies are so much more powerful than he is. He has been taken from his normal world and thrown into a world with mythical creatures, fabled warriors and sorcery.

Evan has to accept that Zeus is his father, endure terrible pain and accept help from the Mother Goddess all in his quest to preserve the legacy of the gods by recovering 2 ancient sacred relics. If he does this Zeus may allow him to return home. Will Evan succeed or will he be stuck in this crazy ancient Greek world forever. This was a fast paced adventure that I’m sure you will love.
