Pixel Acclaim for Mad Gods
Athanasios weaves a great sense of historical reality within a tense quick rambling story close enough to reality to be chilling. Vincent R. Colucci

Think 300 with some Clive Barker and a little bit of the Exorcist thrown in for good measure. The plot will drive you to never stop reading and you will have to move to the next page.Albert Robins III

Athanasios seamlessly weaves as intricate plot that connects an array of fascinating characters that propel the momentum of this wonderfully ambitious narrative. Aman S Anand

Meet the Author

Athanasios works in Montreal as a graphic/video artist, illustrator & writer in dvd production & film. He has been researching & crafting Mad Gods: weaving in factual & rumoured history for over ten years.

Athanasios has been interested in religion & faith since childhood. This led to studying a bewildering variety of beliefs from pagan, wicca, judaism, christianity, islam, to hindu, buddhism, shinto, luciferianism & much more. The interest made its own momentum & brought Mad Gods.

His other interests include most entertainment, from film, to television & books. He won't try video games for the same reason he doesn't keep his favourite booze in the house; he would do nothing else. There was a short time that he was into World of Warcraft but that became the obsession he knew it would be. He had to leave it for a deeper & more engrossing one: Mad Gods.

    I was a bit skeptical about this was one in the beginning. It was kinda hard for me because it had some history references that I didn't quite follow as history was my absolute worst subject. Fortunately this didn't last too long before the action that I could understand really got going. One of my favorite things about this novel is that it is pretty fast-paced the entire time.
    This was a very unique story line about the anti-Christ and book of Revelations. It took elements from the story most folks know and added in new, interesting twists. I am not even a big fan of biblical type stories,....and to be fair I wouldn't describe this book that way either. It is a thrilling adventure that just happens to be a story about the bringing up of the anti-Christ. The characters are very well-written and are very realistic and believable in their actions. I was drawn in to care about what happens to them and at times the book was very hard for me to walk away from.
    I also found that the author was not afraid of some controversial subjects either which was very refreshing and made it even more real for me. I don't want to spoil but there are also some parts with real people that we are all familiar with me that really made me laugh and say..."I knew it!"
    The one thing I was not a big fan of was all the music and movie references. Sometimes these added to the context of the situation but other times it was just too much for me. Most of the references were before my time so I couldn't quite to relate to these either. Other readers may really enjoy this part.
    I highly recommend this one and do plan to pick up the next one in the series.

    This was a bit of a surprise to me. I expected speculative fiction, but did not expect to connect with the characters in this read. Well written, really draws you in to the story of Kostadino and his life's work. The author takes his time on building this world for us, adding historical details to make it believable. Mad Gods takes an aspect of religious fiction and weaves it with myth and original thought. I really enjoyed this and am looking forward to reading more from Athanasios.
