9780316209502: Olympos

From on high, the gods make sport of the mortals who toil below them. None know the cruelty of these beings better than Ganymede, a beautiful prince who was torn away from his family by the gods' divine hands. Granted immortality, Ganymede now whiles away his days in an inescapable miniature garden for the amusement of the gods, particularly Apollo. But the gods themselves are no strangers to the boredom of eternal life, and as Ganymede quickly discovers, they will do anything to keep themselves entertained, both at his expense and at one another's...

About the Author:

Manga creator Aki is a talented artist who, in addition to publishing manga, illustrates several light novels and is part of the doujinshi circle Shachou no Subako.

From Booklist:

These are not your parents’ Greek gods. In Olympos, bored Apollo, Hades, Zeus, and Poseidon bear only the vaguest resemblance to the traditional Greek gods. Aki’s gods are young, androgynous, gorgeously drawn, and filled with ennui and confusing, rambling, pseudophilosophical rants. To relieve his boredom, Apollo spirits lovely prince Ganymede off to a miniature garden in the heavens, where the rest of the gods, who are also bored, visit and tease Ganymede with the thought of freedom. The very thin plot of humans kidnapped to relieve the gods of their boredom is really just a vehicle to showcase Aki’s beautiful manga characters and backgrounds. As long as readers focus on the lush illustrations, they can easily ignore the pages of whining from gods and humans alike. This title may appeal to aspiring artists and fans of shonen-ai manga. While not an essential addition, it is recommended for libraries serving a voracious manga readership. Grades 9-12. --Candice Mack
