Athena's Champion
Athena's Champion - Cath Mayo,David Hair

by David Hair & Cath Mayo


First book in the Olympus Trilogy.


This is written in present tense. I can see why in the first chapter. It gives it an ethereal, mystical past feeling and as it follows some known mythology, it could have made a good start to the story if it hadn't carried on in present tense throughout.


As that's what it did, it reads rather slow. The story itself is interesting so I persevered, but by 18% it was becoming a real chore.


I'm not sure how closely it follows the actual mythology as I'm not that familiar with the Greek stories, but my impression is that it's pretty close. The plot and action are good and I liked the main character. My only problem is that it dragged terribly and could have been a really good read if it had been written properly in past tense. Why is this a thing? No Classics, NONE, are written totally in past tense!


The writing itself was very good. The authors are obviously able to write well. I just hope they progress from using present tense. Unfortunately I'll never know because once stung with this, I never go back to the author again.

Review: Champion (Galactic Gladiators #5) by Anna Hackett
Champion - Anna Hackett
Galactic Gladiators #5
Anna Hackett
Science Fiction Romance
March 26, 2017
Kindle Unlimited


Fighting for love, honor, and freedom on the galaxy's lawless outer rim...


Space marine Blaine Strong enjoyed being a composed, controlled member of space station security...until he was abducted by alien slavers. Forced into underground fight rings and pumped full of drugs, he's now seething with anger and out for revenge.


Rescued by gladiators and fellow humans on the desert world of Carthago, Blaine is fighting to be the man he once was. But when the House of Galen is attacked, he must focus on joining the gladiators to fight back. That means teaming up with a tough, competitive female gladiator who not only challenges him at every turn, awakens a fierce desire he's never felt before, but a woman who can sense the churning emotions inside him.


Gladiator Saff Essikani is the best net fighter in the Kor Magna Arena. Raised from young to fight, she bows to no man and uses her empathic abilities to win at whatever cost. With her House targeted and people under their care threatened, she'll stop at nothing to find those responsible. But then she finds herself face to face with a big, tortured man from Earth who affects her like no man before. As Saff and Blaine head into the desert to uncover a conspiracy, their incendiary desire flares hotter than the desert suns. But as Blaine's angry emotions rage out of control, Saff knows that unless he learns to embrace the man he is now, he has no chance of survival.


Note to readers: This sci fi romance contains a lot of action (think wild gladiatorial fights and daring rescues), tough gladiators (the warriors of the House of Galen) and a steamy romance (between a tough female gladiator and a tortured space marine). So if you like it fast, and gritty, and sexy, this is for you!


Includes a preview of Barbarian, the next book in the Galactic Gladiators series.






Champion is book five in Galactic Gladiators series by Anna Hackett.


Another action-packed read. This time we are treated to a female fighter Saff and a human male Blaine.


Saff is tough, focussed, and fond of teasing her Gladiator brothers in arms. She also loves a challenge. 


Blaine was a space marine until the day he was captured by alien slavers and sold to the underground fight arena. They drugged him to high heaven. He’s now escaped, but the drugs pumped into him have affect him. 


There are quite a few people who are very unhappy with the House of Galen and revenge is clearly something they want. Things escalate and Saff and Blaine have a fight on their hands. Their romance was ok. Not as well thought out as previous couples.


Champion is a non stop action adventure. This was an enjoyable read. Not my favorite, but still good.


Rated: 3.5 Stars

Danny oder Die Fasanenjagd // Danny: The Champion of the World
Danny oder Die Fasanenjagd - Roald Dahl,Quentin Blake

german and english review


Inhalt: Dannys Vater ist Automechaniker und ... Wilddieb!
Als Danny das erfährt, ist er zunächst entsetzt - um später seinen Vater noch zu übertreffen und selbst Weltmeister im Wildern zu werden. Natürlich ist das illegal - aber in guter Familientradition schlagen die bei den den wachsamen Wildhütern mit vielen Tricks und großem Vergnügen ein Schnippchen nach dem anderen.


Meine Bewertung: Wunderbare Vater-Sohn-Beziehung!!!


Es ist geschafft, das war das letzte Roald Dahl Buch, das ich zu Hause liegen hatte und noch nicht gelesen habe. Ich muss mir aber noch zwei oder drei kaufen.

Eigentlich wollte ich das Buch schon im Januar fertig lesen, doch das Leben kam dazwischen und einige gesundheitliche Probleme, alles was absolut nichts mit dem Buch zu tun hat. Deswegen hat es allerdings etwas gedauert bis ich das Buch fertig gelesen habe.


Das Buch selbst gehört nicht zu meinen absoluten Favoriten von ihm aber es war dennoch unheimlich schön und richtig unterhaltsam. Ich liebe Bücher deren Fokus auf Kind-Eltern Beziehungen liegen. Besonders hier die enge Verbindung zwischen Danny und seinem alleinerziehendem Papa. Die Geschichte an sich war einfach richtig lustig und hat mir total gefallen.


Ein Highlight war für mich die Gute Nacht Geschichte mit dem BFG.




Summary: Can Danny and his father outsmart the villainous Mr. Hazell?

Danny has a life any boy would love—his home is a gypsy caravan, he's the youngest master car mechanic around, and his best friend is his dad, who never runs out of wonderful stories to tell. But one night Danny discovers a shocking secret that his father has kept hidden for years. Soon Danny finds himself the mastermind behind the most incredible plot ever attempted against nasty Victor Hazell, a wealthy landowner with a bad attitude. Can they pull it off? If so, Danny will truly be the champion of the world.


My review: Wonderful Father-Son relationship!!!


It is done. This is the last Roald Dahl book that I had at gome that I still had to read. Now I just have to buy two or three more.


I planned on actually finishing this book in january but life happened and some health issues, everything that isn't related to the book at all. But that's why it took my a while to actually finish this book.

The book itself isn't one of my favorites but I still enjoyed it quite a lot and had lots of fun with it. I just love books that focus on Children-Parents relationships. I especially really loved the strong bond between Danny and his single father. The story itself was just really fun and I liked it a lot.


A highlight of mine was the Good Night story about the BFG.
