Everything was going so well for Eliot.
He had a glowing recommendation from his school and a glowing track record but now his home is under threat and his mum is ill and suddenly nothing is going right for Eliot at all.
Eliot needs a hero, but he might be about to get more than he bargained for.
When a shooting star crashes to earth, it lands Eliot smack bang in the path of Virgo - a young Zodiac goddess on a mission. But when the pair accidentally release Thanatos, a wicked death daemon imprisoned beneath Stonehenge, they’ve got nowhere to turn for help but to the old Olympian gods.
