The Journey of Odysseus

Follow Your Fates presents:
The Journey of Odysseus

by Ed DeHoratius
illustrated by Drian Delandro Hardison

You are Odysseus, the wiliest hero of ancient Greece. Your love for family is as strong as your quest for adventure. What will you do, when given the choice of immortality? Or when a man-eating monster has you and your men trapped in his cave?

In The Journey of Odysseus, you face the same challenges as Odysseus in Homer’s Odyssey, but you are in control of your destiny. Only one path brings success and satisfaction. Fifteen others lead to death, defeat, shame, or unending regret.

Readers ages 8 and up will experience Odysseus’ journeys firsthand in Ed DeHoratius’ dramatic text, dynamically illustrated by award-winning comic book artist Brian Delandro Hardison.

Special Features:
  • Prose story of the Odyssey that puts you right in the action
  • 30 different endings—depending on your choices
  • 5 illustrations by award-winning comic book artist Brian Delandro Hardison
