    One thought on “Hero For Hire”

    1. The premise of this book made it sound like it would be a lot of fun Eno the Thracian is a hero for hire in the Ancient Greece of Greek Mythology He is the guy to call when you are being plagued by monsters or have caught the eye of a God Eno s adventures really should have been a great mix of exciting and hilarious but sadly they turned out to be dull and boring The attempts at humour failed and I never managed to form an attachment to any of the characters Dnf ed at the 25% mark Life is to sho [...]

    2. Following the prequel novella Eno and the Pirates, I got the Eno s Way The Complete Eno the Thracian Adventures A Historical Fantasy of Myths and Monsters boxed set This is the first book I ve read from it first in the series , and the review reflects that A review of the full series will be published later.Half way between Sword Sorcery and Historical Detectives, CB Pratt weaves a compelling historical fantasy detective blend.Expect a romp around mythical Greece, with it s associated gods, hero [...]

    3. This never grabbed me I got 1 4 of the way through before giving up, because I just didn t care about the main character He could have been a good character, but didn t really seem like a real guy not enough ego or moxie in too many places The supporting characters actually felt real The world was pretty interesting I like Greek mythology there were interesting asides, but they lacked the hook of an interesting character to root for or sneer at This sort of tale demands it, but this guy was too [...]

    4. After having read a number of thrillers and horrors, I was looking for something completely different to read and found Eno Eno is a hero for hire who faces a mission filled with danger, obstacles to overcome and some humour.It was the humour that really stood out for me I like dry humour, which is what we have here It appears naturally with the author managing to make me laugh at events and situations throughout the entire length of the book.Eno is a very likable character He shows determinatio [...]

    5. 4.5 Stars I should begin by saying that I ve always had a weakness for Greek Mythology I mean, what s not to love It s full of twisted, epic, morbid, fist pumpy occasionally eye gaugey awesomeness magical beasts, petty gods and the poor, poor mortals they trample, people turning into animals, animals turning into people, gods turning into animals to get with people, acts of brawny, pectoraly heroism coupled with sometimes, at least shrewd, unbending female characters, bath tub murders, cannibal [...]

    6. I picked up this book because it has a building on the cover, which would meet a current reading challenge, and it s set in ancient Greece, always a favorite of mine What I got was a swashbuckling hero for hire, running around the islands of the wine dark Aegean, slaying monsters, bandits, rescuing maidens and harpies, and solving the mysteries of gods, goddesses, and evil death cults And, on the plus side, Eno has a sense of humor and muscles on muscles That s his phrase, not mine Very, very re [...]

    7. This book was incredible fun Eno narrates his story in first person and is very casual and offhanded about his amazing feats He will mention whiling away time by bending iron bars into unusual shapes while he is waiting for the blacksmith to finish working on hammering out a sword The humor is sly like that He will mention things almost in passing that we might think of as boasting or astounding but, because they are everyday things to him and no big deal, he just states them without embellishme [...]

    8. Greek mythology and mythology in general is a fascinating thing A bit confusing with all of the gods, demigods, monsters, and mischief they get up to, but cool nonetheless So, when I saw Hero for Hire Eno the Thracian Book 1 by C.B Pratt and it had the mythology elements, I downloaded it and began to read Excellent choice Synopsis from the author Armed with a wry voice and a swift sword, Eno the Thracian finds his simple mission to rid an island of a harpy turns into a mystery that shakes the th [...]

    9. I love a book I can t predict the ending to by the end of the first chapter There were twists and turns in this book than I could have ever guessed, and many actually took me by surprise No mean feat, I assure you The author did a great job of storytelling, here, and I loved Eno He was a down to earth hero Not overly confident, but he certainly got the job done in every case.I didn t care for Phandros when he first came on the scene, and was fairly suspicious of him, but sure enough, I ended up [...]

    10. Hero for Hire is Rick Riordan s Olympians but for grown ups Witty, chock full of pithy, wise sayings and observations, and inventive in both plot and subplots, Hero for Hire is an extremely well written novel of Greek hero style adventure Woven in and around one another are lyrical passages reminiscent in their lyricism of Guy Gavriel Kay s writing These are threaded with plucky, fresh dialog that easily holds the reader s attention and makes him appreciate the character development that is unfo [...]

    11. I was never much of a fan for sword and sandal tales the few I d read prior to Hero for Hire were to be blunt, abysmal I m also not a fan of stories written in the first person narrative So why did I read it, much less write a four star review I read on because the writing was so much better than my previous reads in this genre and the story itself was better, too And, thanks to C.B Pratt s ability to establish a lead character and narrator that was not only funny, Eno the Thracian was also beli [...]

    12. Go on a Quest with Eno the ThracianHero for Hire, by C B Pratt, reminded of the times years ago when I played Dungeons and Dragons With real dice With maps And hardcover books Once upon a time, DD was not played on the computer It s not a myth Eno posted his advertisement in the marketplace Hero for Hire All monsters dispatched from carnivorous geese to Minotaurs Special rates for multiples Eno the Thracian at the sign of the Ram s Head, one flight up Reading Eno s story is like sitting with him [...]

    13. Hero for Hire All monsters dispatched from carnivorous geese to Minotaurs Special rates for multiples Eno the Thracian, at the sign of the Ram s Head, one flight up Right from the beginning this book knows exactly what it is and lets you know It s a fun, tongue in cheek ride through the ancient civilizations The author knows the mythology, knows the history and then bends both skillfully to her will, delivering a highly enjoyable, imaginative story that doesn t take itself too seriously Story st [...]

    14. Eno the Thracian is one hell of a fun hero to follow around He doesn t sleep around though he s given than one opportunity and he has his own sense of honour, duty and piety He s very down to earth and realistic, yet seems perfectly at ease in the company of his gods He wasn t my favourite character, though That was Hades, hands down Now, the ruler of the underworld only had a cameo appearance, but it was brilliant No, I don t do spoilers so you ll need to read for yourself to see why There are [...]

    15. If you liked Clash of the Titans or The Odyssey, you ll also love traveling with Eno as he hires himself out to help a young king whose kingdom is plagued by misfortunes of mythical proportion Eno has the strength of the heroes we know from Greek myths but something of a modern sensibility that makes him wonder, for example, whether a harpy that figures in the plot might have a soft side that no one else sees This book is first of a series but has a satisfying ending that made me want to find ou [...]

    16. I had SO much fun reading this book I was reading quotes from it to my family all during the holiday weekend and telling my guys they needed to read this too.Eno the Thracian is a FUN character This adventure is written from his first person perspective and I enjoyed his droll, Film Noir Detective approach to Being a Hero in the ancient world In pursuit of The Perfect Girl, he s taken on a job to earn enough to impress her family and that s where it all begins.Snark, solid dry wisdom, busy battl [...]

    17. A unique mix of urban fantasy and classical mythology, set in ancient Greece There s a few bumpy spots in the imagery worldbuilding as a result of the clash of the urban fantasy tone and culture of the setting But on the whole, it s tightly written, funny, and entertaining The tone moves fast, and there s hardly an editing miss to slow the reader up It s been a while since I delved deeply into the Greek pantheon, and this book was a fun reintroduction to it.

    18. Eno is a fabulous character You admire him and want to know him, and his personality is huge I love the action, humor insinuated and otherwise and the story detail I also loved names like Dark Lady This story had it all The mixing of modern day times and attitude into this story s world was genius The whole story involved the reader every step of the way, the characters were perfect I fully recommend this book for a great ride

    19. Wow What a hero or is he a god That s the question you ll be asking, along with how the author knows so much about Greek mythology and how C.B Pratt is able to humorously keep harpies, giant crabs and wise cracking heroes in the mix without missing a beat You ll never meet another hero like Eno the Thracian, I guarantee it

    20. One big drawbackThe one big drawback to this tale is that it stops I haven t enjoyed a book in a very long time Looking forward to seeing what Eno the Thracian gets up to next.

    21. I enjoyed this book quite a bit, I have always been a fan of greek mythology and this plays on it a lot I m interested in seeing where the series goes.

    22. In the realm of Swords, conquering heroes, and the nasty pieces of work an author can bring to life, C.B Pratt has done her diligence in the creation of this piece Written in first person narrative, this book takes you into a world of warriors, scoundrel, gods, and goddesses Each turn of the page will take you on a fanatical journey You ll experience every emotion of the character, and you re following in their footstep Steady pass, well written with witty humor.

    23. I definitely enjoyed this novel The pace of the novel was fast, never boring, and always kept you guessing The story is devoid of offensive language and sexual content Any reader of any age will enjoy it The characters were very likable and Eno just stole my heart I downloaded the book for free, but I will definitely read the others by this author and pay for them.My mother taught me to read and write when I was about five years old Our neighbor s daughter was in high school, and she brought me [...]

    24. This is the first book I ve read by C.B Pratt and I m glad I did She did a wonderful job spinning a fanciful, adventurous tale It was refreshing to read a book without any foul language, and sex The book was well written, and fit the time frame for the story It s full of references to the Greek Gods of old, and I could tell Pratt did a lot of extensive research The story pulled me in from the beginning, and I loved following Eno s character as he went from one situation into another, each one a [...]

    25. Mythology and Greek Hero adventures aren t my usual cup of tea, but I chose HERO FOR HIRE because it sounded intriguing I found it to be a highly entertaining, cracking good story C B Pratt takes readers on a fast paced, wild adventure with one hair raising escape from disaster after another Incredibly, she does so without sacrificing character development Our hero, Eno the Thracian, is pragmatic, wry, and as agile mentally as he is physically He also has a softer heart and a keener sense of jus [...]

    26. Ms Pratt s highly entertaining tale presents Eno the Thracian, a combination of Hercules and Sherlock Holmes Eno definitely has the gods on his side, for a reason that sometimes mystifies him As a self proclaimed hero, he advertises his extraordinary services on a shingle above a tavern Fortunately, with his services in great demand, he is never there Although Eno s services are rendered with all seriousness, his observations about others and himself are rendered with wry humor The gods are brou [...]

    27. Hero for Hire has to be one of the most fun and adventurous books I ve read in awhile Every page took me on another crazy turn I loved Eno and his fun charm and charasmatic personality He was well written with depth of every emotion I laughed with him and cried with him over his torment of betrayal and his mission to make things right I admired his persistence even through the wrath of many of the dark Gods CB Pratt did an amazing job creating the fantasy worlds he traveled through and I could e [...]

    28. Just one quick negative to start This book could use an editor, or at least a proofreader There were numerous sentences with multiple instances of the same verb as if the author started to write a sentence one way Then, changed her mind and worded it another, but failed to completely remove the original The story itself, however, is worth overlooking the lack of editing Its lighthearted and FUN The story is much like the hero himself, not quite well honed, expensive steel, not quite flashy and h [...]

    29. I love ancient Greek mythology, but this free start to the series takes the history and puts a sense of humour into it It s not laugh out loud, subtle and dry, though I did chuckle at times.That said, I smiled throughout the whole book Eno is such a likeable character that you cannot help but love him, and even though he is the main, the author pays equal attention to the development of the sub characters Phandros is hilarious and I hope to see him in future instalments.The author has really do [...]
