Heracles, renowned for his strength and spirit, has done something terrible. His gilded life lies in ruins. Seeking the Oracle, he is given a new mission: pay penance by becoming the slave of his sworn enemy.

Twelve impossible labours await him. To restore his reputation, he must face monsters and mythical beasts that will test him to his limits and beyond. For he has become a pawn of Gods: of Zeus's pride and, above all, Hera's jealousy...

Can he fight back? Or even survive?

If you liked 90s Hercules show or the animated films, I highly recommend reading this. It has problems, of course. The narrator was a little quick at points, so there might be some confusion when perspectives shift. Some moments feel a little longer than needed. On the other hand, this is an excellent start to the journey of Heracles. The framing device is fascinating. They do an amazing job of making you wonder why he did what he did that started his labors, and it shows the transition from being a man with great strength to the starting of a hero. I say if you like Hercules or Heracles, absolutely read this. The mix of dreams and realism with the fantasy and lore makes it absolutely worth it.
