Mencken: A study of his thought by Charles A Fecher

Inside an ordinary middle school in an ordinary city, a small redheadedeighth grader is doing something very ordinary, indeed. Ever since Charlotte Mielswetzski and her cousin, Zee, saved the world, lifehas been rather ordinary. Ordinary, that is, if you call beingultramegagrounded (in Charlottes case) or treated as if you might fall topieces (in Zees case) ordinary. Either way, heroes deserve better. Of course, no one knows Charlotte and Zee are heroes. Its not like they cansimply announce that Greek myths are real or proclaim they have returned fromthe Underworld, where they rescued all of mankind from Philonecron, aderanged demigod with delusions of grandeur. Instead, they are forced to keepthis terrible knowledge to themselves, and are stuck in a state ofextraordinary ordinariness. But things arent quite as ordinary as they seem. For Philonecron is thegrandson of Poseidon, and you dont mess with the progeny of the second mostpowerful god in the universe. And Philonecron himself isnt so happy abouthaving all of his delicious plans thwarted by mortal children. He wantsrevenge, and with his grandfather to help him, he is going to get what hewants. For Charlotte and Zee, their not-so-ordinary lives are about to be disruptedonce again. This time its not the world they must save -- its themselves. In the thrilling second installment of the Cronus Chronicles trilogy, authorAnne Ursu brings her trademark wit to a spectacular adventure on the highseas.
