Ethan stumbles into the midst of an ancient war, and the only person who can save him is his archaeologist dad and the phone app that summons Thor.
Review: This was written for kiddies, which may explain the lack of reviews. Still, an effort was made to write this novel, so an equal effort will be made in this review. Kinda weird this has only one review in about 7 years since being published. Marketing fail? Publishing hiccups? Bad novel? Well read on to find out!
This was an entertaining read, although the character development was a bit truncated due to the compressed story line. Kids 12 and under will have a good time with this.
