Book 2 of The Alex Grosjean Adventures
Alex Grosjean, Oracle to the gods, is back. A tall, dark and pointy-toothed stranger shows up at Alex’s door and asks for her help: he wants to find Lamia, an insane monster-woman who cursed him and turned him into a vrykolakas. Alex doesn’t want to take the case, but after a plague sweeps through the city and Lamia starts abducting children, she finds she doesn’t have a choice. As usual, the gods task Alex with stopping both the plague and Lamia, but don’t offer much help. Even Alex’s boyfriend, Harry, has a dark side and secrets of his own. After a trip across the world and a frightening encounter with the goddess Hekate, Alex must push herself to her very limits to save not only herself, but the world. Again.

What Readers Say
Alex Grosjean is back in this follow-up to Zeus, Inc. She is smart, tough, independent, and has a bit of a potty mouth. Now she is the Oracle, dealing with Greek gods on a daily basis and using her detective skills to prevent mythological creatures from killing. All in a day’s work. And her new boyfriend Harry, while adorable, is keeping some secrets of his own. I loved this book, maybe even more than the first. Things are settling in now and we are getting used to Alex’s world. Mystery, mythology, and a bit of romance. I am definitely looking forward to continuing the series. – Wi Love Books
There’s one problem I have with Robin Burks as an author: she doesn’t write as fast as I read. I really love Alex as her main character, or heroine even, often saving the day while looking a mess and cursing like a sailor. Eat that Wonder Woman. Can hardly wait for more. – Marjolein
