Helen and Troy’s Epic Road Quest by A. Lee Martinez was silly good fun. Helen, a minotaur with body issues, and Troy, an overachieving Asian American, find themselves forced into an epic quest by a banished hamburger god after a virgin sacrifice goes wrong. Like all of Martinez’s books, this was a zany adventure of unlikely proportions. Helen and Troy are not so typical teenagers just trying to deal with hormones, crushes, stereotypes and giant Cyclopes. As our two heroes hit the road, they find themselves guided and pursued by the shadowy National Questing Bureau and a horde of middle-aged orcs hell bent on keeping them from completing their mission, which could possibly destroy the world—or at least most of it.
