Carry The Moon in My Pocket, a collection of short stories won Seiun Award in 2011. The author has also written young adult fiction including The Clouded World under the pen name Jay Amory. The series has been translated into over nine languages. Langrove’s Pantheon series is a set of novels that can be read as standalone military sci-fi featuring ancient gods mythologies. Besides writing novels, the author has contributed journalism and reviews to magazines such as BBC Mindgames Magazine, Interzone and The Literary Review.

The Age of Ra

There’s an old belief that explains the concept behind The Age of Ra- the belief of As Above, So Below from an old alchemical phrase, The Emerald Tablet. To all the followers of ancient hermeticism, this phrase is the key to all the mysteries of this world. The author of The Emerald Tablet, Hermes Trismegistus saw the phrase as a key to open the magic born in the world. The main meaning of the maxim is that macro cosmos is reflected in the microcosmos and that God is equal to man.

James Lovegrove uses the same idea in his brilliantly woven book where he creates two different worlds in the far future where the Egyptian Pantheon have taken over the rule from all other gods and divided the earth into different factions each segment assigned a god from the pantheon.

Primarily Earth is divided into two – the Earth and the divine level. To be more specific, the story tells four unique tales with four parallel arcs. First is the story of the pantheon gods and their movement in the pantheon and secondly is the between Osiris, Set, Nephthys, and Isis. Thirdly is the battle between the worldly divisions and their struggle for domination and finally is the battle between a British soldier and his smaller brother.

The Age of Ra is all about fratricide, theocracy, and sibling rivalry which is witnessed both on heaven and earth. Well, here’s an eye opener- if you examine closely at the mythology around the world it’s present, the only key difference between the different pantheons are their names- the pantheons are named according to the factions they originate from.

After the Earth is partitioned among the goddesses and gods, Europe is assigned to Isis and Osiris; the United States is assigned to Horus, Africa to Nephthys, Asia to Set, and Japan belongs to Anubis. Ra rejected a responsibility a while back and now roams the Heavens and Earth with his companions. On the other hand, the First Family is soiled in pleasure after confirming their supremacy so that their children and grandchildren rule the world. But because we already know how everything goes on from the mythology, the gods often don’t form a happy family as they thought. For example, Seth murders Osiris, Nephthys seduces Osiris, and Africa forms an alliance with Africa like husband and wife while the US allies with Europe like father and son.

The author has done a brilliant job in crafting his first novel in Pantheon series. The story is told from the point of view of David Westwynter, and it’s a tightly crafted narrative with non-nonsense prose. To the author’s credit, this novel is fast paced, action packed and the characters are fascinating both primary and secondary.

The Age of Zeus

The Greek Pantheon descends to Earth and subjugates the entire world to its will, in a kind of forced pacification, since they end up with the conflicts all but terrorize and kill those who oppose them.

Apparently, a regime of this kind leads to the existence of a resistance, which is usually crushed without pity and pity, until a billionaire decides to create special armor and suits, which allow its users (Titans) to face Zeus and the other gods, almost equal to equal. As you can guess, this makes the book full of action; you could even say that if it was a movie, it was one of those to see with a big bucket of popcorn next to you. This is not to say that it is poorly written; quite the contrary, it is direct and straightforward, which was undoubtedly the aim of the author.

The book advances to the extent of the training and missions of the Titans, which begin with the hunting of mythical monsters, left to lose in the world to intimidate and punish rebellions, such as the Hydra, Grifo, and Minotaur, culminating in an epic confrontation with the gods.

In the middle there is still room for a mystery as to the origin of these Olympians and the pertinent question, whether the ends justify the means – is it that the violence of Zeus and his companions is acceptable, given all the good they have done to the world? The wars are over, and governments are shifting their budgets to social causes, but does it compensate a drunken Hercules to destroy everything in front of him?

Despite having a couple of hundred pages to almost 700 pages, The Age of Zeus is a light read with an engaging heroine who’s supported by a cast of engaging characters who play their roles perfectly. James Lovegrove has fun with his setting, and he is not afraid to give a few dips into the real world. There are scenes of romance that develops between Titan and Sam, all which feel natural and a beautiful element to the story which will satisfy the thirst of avid romance readers. The action is non-stop, the plot is nicely paced, and the characterizations are well done were the Greek gods act and sounded like Greek gods.
