Goodreads Synopsis:

Gwendolyn nuzzled Vardr's ear and whispered the reason she was sacrificing her should. "We're not strong enough."

What do you do when your wife sacrifices herself to protect you? If you are Vardr, you hunt down the gods responsible and make them bleed.

Hunting down an amped-up werewolf and an elite warrior that escaped from Valhalla through the streets of New Phoenix wasn't in Vardr's original place, neither was tracking down missing fae.

Caught in an ancient war among deities, Vardr and his oddball team must succeed to prevent two rogue gods from being born and unleashed upon Earth

Book Review:
Pre-reading Thoughts;

When I read the synopsis of this book for the first time, I couldn't help but think that it was unique and something that I really wanted to read. With a classic cover where could this story go wrong? I cannot wait to jump into this book and see how everything unfolds!

Thank you so much to the author for sending me a copy of his book to review. Just a small disclaimer for those reading this review. I have received this book in exchange for an honest review. Please note that this does not affect my opinion in any way. All thoughts are my own.

Writing Thoughts:

The writing in this book was really good but I felt that it was quite difficult to get into. It felt dense but I think it has to do with the amount of detail. Despite making the writing dense, the detail in this book is quite needed. The world that is created is a shell of our own and we are introduced to so many different variables that need to be given good descriptions. The writing created a vivid world that pulled you in. The dialogue was also really well done!

Plot Thoughts:

The plot was really interesting. The prologue set the scene quite nicely and the chapters that followed did a great job of building the plot. Despite the plot being interesting, it was slow paced for me which really didn’t help with the dense writing. However with that being said, the action scenes definitely picked up the pace when it got a little too slow. 

Character Thoughts:

I liked the characters in this book. They were great. However I felt like I wanted to know a bit more about the secondary characters. We got glimpses of who they are but I just wanted a bit more. Another thing that I liked was that there was a wide range of characters. No two were a like. 

Final Thoughts:

Overall, this is great start to a series but unfortunately it isn’t one that I think that I will continue. The writing was good despite the density. The plot was new and intriguing but lost its steady pace every now and again. The characters were great and diverse but I wish that I had gotten a little more information on the secondary characters. This is a good book and even though I really enjoyed the read, I don’t actually think that this is a series for me. I do, however, highly recommend this book to people you enjoy paranormal books and great world building! Thank you so much to the author for providing me with a copy of his book!

Yours in Reading,
