Publisher's Summary

Long ago, Olympian gods imprisoned the demon Pandora in a human - Hope - creating a creature whose only purpose was chaos and death. Remorseful, the gods locked Pandora away in Tartarus, ruled by Hades.
Now, centuries later, Pandora escapes. Nate Garrett, a 1,600-year-old sorcerer, is sent to recapture her and discovers her plan to disrupt the 1936 Berlin Olympic Games, killing thousands in a misplaced quest for vengeance.
Fast forward to modern-day Berlin, where Nate has agreed to act as guardian on a school trip to Germany to visit Hades at the entrance to Tartarus. When Titan King Cronus becomes the second ever to escape Tartarus, Nate is forced to track him down and bring him back, to avert a civil war between those who would use his escape to gain power.
Prison of Hope is the fourth book in the highly acclaimed and action-packed dark urban fantasy series the Hellequin Chronicles.

Action packed urban fantasy

This is another good book in the Hellequin series. This book is pretty similar to the others. lots of action and a current story told simultaneously with a historical backstory ala Highlander.

The author does a great job of providing more definition to the protagonist by the flashbacks in the story. The character definitely changes and grows throughout the series and this book is no different. I thought the main character was becoming a little too nice compared to earlier books, but he goes back to form once pushed far enough. That edge is what differentiates this character from other urban fantasy leads. I hope the author doesn't forget that.

This book can get a bit graphic with language and violent. It could be listened to by young adults but straddles the border of what would be appropriate. This one is actually more kid friendly than previous books. You could read this as a stand alone but would enjoy it more if you have read the previous books in the series.

If you like the series so far you will enjoy this one as well. I had this on pre-order as soon as I saw it and definitely do not regret the purchase.

Avid listener

Disappointing addition to a great series. A very thin plot and random connections between story arcs. Characters that could of been interesting were one dimensional and ridiculous also trite & repetitive tropes. I could barely finish this one & had no interest in how it ended. Btw this is the 1st review I've felt the need to write!
