Who Let the Gods Out Maz Evans; BOOKCLUB Every week we bring you book news, reviews and interviews. Today, Chris Brookmyre takes us under the cover of his latest release, and a young reader recommends a tale of modern mythology. Wimbledon unless their rooms are Love,.

In her debut novel, Maz Evans tells the story of young carer Elliot as the constellation Virgo crashes into his life and involves him in the of releasing Thanatos, daemon of death, and having to engage the retired Olympians to recapture him.

The book's plot was interesting and the dialogue was excellent but the vibrant characters were the absolute strength of the novel - there was a protagonist to root for in Elliot, Teen Corner BY AMY SMITH, AGE15 villains we love to hate, and the crazy, colourful, Olympians as the supporting cast.

Simultaneously hilarious and heartbreaking, this may be the best middle grade novel I'll read this year. 10/10.
