Ages 9-12. Sam and his mother are swindling the people of Eden City with their medicine show, selling "miracle" cures to their gullible audiences. When their ruse is rumbled and the Eden City residents go after them, Prometheus steps in to help out. Meanwhile, they find an unlikely ally in Zeus - who helps get them out of their predicament, but not without a cost. In exchange, he wants Sam and Prometheus to help settle a score with the monsters of Greek mythology. The Fire Thief trilogy builds to a spectacular showdown between the Greek gods and a whole crew of mythical monsters-with plenty of action and Terry Deary's unique humor along the way. Readers are in for an unexpected and memorable climax.

"Another time-twisting, speedy and zany adventure unfolds. . . . Fans of Greek mythology will enjoy the clever and irreverent ways that Sam uses his knowledge of heroes and legends to baffle and defeat the famous monsters." - VOYA.
