Kraken Bake

Kraken Bake, the sequel to the critically acclaimed Food for the Gods (a finalist for the Boney Blithe Award, The High Plains Awards, and the Aurora Awards)  mirthfully re-imagines the world of ancient Greece like you’ve never seen before.
Description

{sh404sef_social_buttons}

It’s a great day for Greece when Perseus defeats the dreaded kraken. But victory begins to lose its lustre when the remains of the beast swamp the shores and fishing nets of the Aegean. Now after weeks of kraken cakes, kraken kabobs, kraken fritters, and kraken stew, everybody is getting decidedly sick of kraken—none more so than Chef Pelops.

In response to the “kraken crisis,” the city of Athens announces the inaugural Bronze Chef competition. Normally, Pelops would jump at the chance to prove himself the best celebrity chef in Greece. The trouble is, the competition’s secret ingredient is sure to be kraken—and, having once offended Poseidon, Pelops can’t cook kraken to save his life.

To make matters worse, a loathsome rival has vowed to win the contest by fair means or foul. Now, Pelops must overcome the sea god’s curse to show once and for all that he is the better chef—a task made all the more difficult by the insufferable antics of a most unexpected relative…

 

Reviews

Kraken Bake is a marvelous book full of humor and interesting interpretations of classic stories, and it’s a great follow up to Food for the Gods.

Ian Goodwillie, The Winnipeg Review

I seriously enjoyed this book! If you are looking for an entertaining, colourful, funny book with an unusual theme and story, then read this, you will not be disappointed.

Catherine Ford, Books, Rants or Raves

Based on this novel alone I can say that I hope there will be many sequels, because this novel is excellent entertainment.
