    A fun mythology fantasy mash for kids around the 10 mark Likeable characters and bad guys galore, and I like that the Lyre of Orpheus is the weapon of choice instead of an actual weapon.

    Even though I m a full grown adult Tony Abbott never fails to pull me headfirst into his fantasy worlds I m so happy that he s still writing these great epic stories within the span of 100 pages, it s honestly magical.

    After reading Underworlds The Battle Begins I m my interest level in peaked in the next few books of the series With there only being just over a hundred pages per book, I want to get my hands on the next book I also find the mixing of mythologies very interesting It s cool to see Greek and Norse myths combined to make an original story that still has all the magic and adventure I love.The book starts with Owen Brown telling the reader of his supernatural day It starts out an ordinary day After reading Underworlds The Battle Begins I m my interest level in peaked in the next few books of the series With there only being just over a hundred pages per book, I want to get my hands on the next book I also find the mixing of mythologies very interesting It s cool to see Greek and Norse myths combined to make an original story that still has all the magic and adventure I love.The book starts with Owen Brown telling the reader of his supernatural day It starts out an ordinary day When he sees his best friend Dana Runson in the hall right before class, she tells him that monsters are coming and to find the book at her house, which is supposed to explain everything according to Dana Then a big fiery hole opens up in the floor, a spooky, hissing voice says, The battle begins and then sucks Dana into the fiery hole As you might imagine, Owen was pretty spooked, but he had to save Dana He set out for Dana s house with his best friends Jon and Sydney, who had seen Dana s disappearance from the other side of the hall Inside Dana s house was the book, which was full of descriptions of mythological creatures and people, and Fenrir, a giant fire breathing wolf After escaping the house, they went back to school As they were going through the lunch line at school, the three lunch ladies turned into the Valkyries, the choosers of who dies in battle from Norse mythology Owen and company thought they wanted to kill them, but the Valkyries were there to warn and advise them about the underworlds They told Owen that Loki was behind the monsters escaping the underworlds and that Dana was being held captive by Hades Also, they told him he needed Orpheus Lyre, a magical instrument used by Orpheus to escape Hades underworld, to save Dana Just before the Valkyries turned back into lunch ladies, they told Owen to retrieve his destiny, then enter the red double doors, and then walk among the ancient things With that, they turned back into nice, normal lunch ladies After leaving the lunch room, the trio found the Lyre and retrieved it They then went to find an entrance to Hades underworld They found the entrance under the school, in the boiler room After crossing the River Styx, they met with Hades who said he did not kidnap Dana, so they made a deal If they could find Dana where all the newcomers are kept and bring her back before the hourglass ran out, they could keep her and leave They found Dana in a copper tower guarded by Myrmidons, ants turned into human soldiers by Zeus, Argus, guardian of the newly dead, and Loki, who was behind Dana s kidnapping Using the Lyre, Owen freed Dana and escaped the tower with his friends in tow They made it back to Hades before the hour glass ran out, but Hades was not so nice He told the group that they had to return a group of giants that Loki had let out or he would take Dana back This is where the book ends.Owen Brown is your typical do good er child He raises money for the school and is in the school band Everybody likes him, but there doesn t seem to be anything special about him Despite this, it s his destiny to do great things Jon is the book s comic relief He s alway cracking a joke Sydney is a very intelligent and productive daughter of the shop teacher She s the perfect mixture of brains and brawn.This book is set in the early 2000 s at an average elementary school There is also magic and portals to what are called underworlds There are hundreds of different underworlds, all based on different mythologies

    Owen Brown could tell right away that he was not going to have a good day He was walking around a corner at school and saw a glimpse of his friend, Dana, falling through the floor Right when she was about to go through she threw a book at him to try to help him find her Owen and his friends go on an exciting adventure, but they find out that there is a much bigger problem.Owen Brown is the main character in the book Also, he has his friends, Jon and Sydney, help Owen rescue Dana They are al Owen Brown could tell right away that he was not going to have a good day He was walking around a corner at school and saw a glimpse of his friend, Dana, falling through the floor Right when she was about to go through she threw a book at him to try to help him find her Owen and his friends go on an exciting adventure, but they find out that there is a much bigger problem.Owen Brown is the main character in the book Also, he has his friends, Jon and Sydney, help Owen rescue Dana They are all fourth graders but have their life turned upside down.The majority of the story takes place at Dana s house as they try to find clues to save Dana Also, the kids all spend time at their elementary school because that is where Dana is held The story takes place during modern times I think this because of some of the objects found in Dana s house.The main theme of The Battle Begins is loyalty Owen and his friends must all stick together to save Dana When an important battle is about to happen, Jon and Sydney are afraid and want back out, but they know they must stay and save Dana.If you are in the mood to read an easy mystery, this is a perfect book for you It is an easy read but has a very exciting plot I recommend this book to kids in middle school because they will enjoy and understand this story
