If you enjoy Greek Mythology and/or Romance, this is definitely a book for you.
Thankfully, the only thing this has in common with Gaiman's works are the Gods. I am the minority that does not enjoy his books but I found Icarus Rising to be an intriguingly and unique way of incorporating Greek Mythology with twenty first century humans.
A well researched and beautifully written book. One that will transport you around Europe and teach you mythology whilst 'forcing' you to turn the pages.
I am definitely going to buy book 2.
