Book:The God Beneath the Sea

The God Beneath the Sea

Leon Garfield, Edward Blishen

The story encompasses two great events; the first fall of the god Hephaestus, hurled out of Olympus by his mother Hera for his ugliness; and his second fall, when this misshapen artist-god is rejected by Zeus for daring to accuse his father of brutal cruelty.

This book tells the spell-binding tale of George Treet, a boy who is quite content with his life as part of a family of travelling actors. Until one day his father tells him that he isn't really his son and is, in fact, the son of a rich and powerful man. George must enter a new world, complete with strange servants, an unfriendly mother, a dying father, and a murderous uncle.
