Zeus: We are Gods! (The Olympian New World Series: Book 1) by December Dawne is a book that revolves around Greek mythology. The Olympian gods are forced to leave Earth and find a new place to stay. They make Orbe their home. They are unsure if the mortals will let them stay there. They need the mortals to give them strength. It is now up to Theros and a young mortal, Ren, to save these Olympian gods and the people of Orbe. They have to put an end to Zeus' selfish ways and Hera's jealousy to save them. They have to save the Sun temple too, the biggest temple there.

I found the book extremely fascinating. I was always interested in Greek and Roman gods and the stories related to them. These gods have individual powers that always made their adventures and stories exciting. This book revolves around their life in the small town of Acton, along with the mortals living there. Now the Olympian gods have to make the mortals believe in them. Theros and Ren undertake this task and the book also speaks about the dangers they face from the people, Hera's jealousy, and Zeus and his selfish ways.

The book is exciting for all readers who are interested in mythological stories. The role of Hermes, who is the messenger of the gods, is also noticeable; and other gods and characters also have important roles to play in the story.
