Overview

The force of nature that is Chuck Wendig returns with an original urban fantasy novel, creating a brand new series for Abaddon Books.

Five years ago, it all went wrong for Cason Cole. He lost his wife and son, lost everything, and was bound into service to a man who chews up human lives and spits them out, a predator who holds nothing dear and respects no law. Now, as the man he both loves and hates lies dying at his feet, the sounds of the explosion still ringing in his ears, Cason is finally free. The gods and goddesses are real. A polytheistic pantheon—a tangle of divine hierarchies—once kept the world at an arm’s length, warring with one another for mankind’s belief and devotion. It was a grim and bloody balance, but a balance just the same. When one god triumphed, driving all other gods out of Heaven, it was back to the bad old days: cults and sycophants, and the terrible retribution the gods visit on those who spite them.

I've read quite a bit from Chuck Wendig--and enjoyed it all--but Unclean Spirits stands as my favorite. Urban Fantasy is a heavily saturated genre but this story of a man desperately trying to reclaim his life from the gods who conspire against him is set apart by a compelling world and wonderfully drawn characters. Chuck's signature staccato writing style hits hard, heavy, and often. I highly recommend this book for folks looking for a new path along well-trodden ground.

Wonderful spin on mythology and characters that stand out. I definitely became invested in Coles struggles and story and enjoyed the ride through his battle to reclaim what is his.
