A letter from Virgo ...

Posted by Jazz on Friday April 24th, 2020

Virgo, star of Maz Evans's Who Let the Gods Out series, has popped by the blog to share what the Gods are up to during this very strange time ... (more…)

Against All Gods

In the series finale of Maz Evans' bestselling Who Let the Gods Out? series, Elliot faces his darkest period yet. As well as facing up to his fears, he realises that the future of mankind - and the survival of everything he holds dear - is at stake. But can a bunch of misfit gods, a lost constellation and a mortal boy stand up to the daemon hordes?

The epic conclusion to Maz Evans' bestselling series, full of humour and heart. 

Beyond the Odyssey

Elliot Hooper’s life has got worse. To save his mum he must now go beyond the mortal realm on an odyssey of his own.

What of the heroes and monsters he’ll meet? Odysseus himself, Poseidon, a Cyclops or three, not to mention the ever-evil Daemon of Death. At least he has cosmic shipmates to help: Zeus, Virgo and Hypnos. Right?

This is no ordinary boat trip and it might just take them to the bottom of the ocean for a potion that may not even exist . . .

The raucous third book in Maz Evans’s divine Who Let the Gods Out? quartet. 

Simply the Quest

Elliot Hooper’s troubles are far from over.

His mum’s health worsens, he’s struggling at school, and a bunch of anarchic Greek immortals have moved into his home – including teen goddess Virgo, who’s in trouble with the Zodiac. What’s more, death-daemon Thanatos and his scary mum are at large. As even more immortal allies and enemies emerge, Virgo and Elliot must learn how to be heroes …

The stakes are higher than ever in the raucous sequel to Maz Evans’ bestselling anarchic romp, Who Let the Gods Out?.
