Overview

Collection of all 4 The Gods Among Us novellas. Approx. 400 pages.

Banished, Versipellis, Suffer The Innocent, Return To Nibiru.

An epic historical fiction, fantasy tale of banished ancient gods, jealous sibling deities, and the destruction of humanity. The story begins in 10,000 B.C and follows the feuding god-brothers Enki & Inlil through ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia, and Rome.

"This story does not disappoint. Often I felt like the fly on the wall, drinking in the fear, hatred, admiration and love experienced by a tribe of gods. Emotions all too human apparently rule gods with as potent a hand as they do us mortals. It is the foundation of these myriad emotions which ground the story and allow it to be free.

Gods are also capable of certain indiscretions which if left unattended may result in harming not only fellow deities but other beings as well. Anu is the god who dwells at the head of the table and it is his two sons Enki and his half brother Inlil who because of wills and determination even more powerful than their father's end up reaching for each other's throat.

Inlil has pushed his power and maxed out his Get out of Jail Cards. His behavior with the young goddess Sud has seen to that.

May I suggest a dimly lit room and a tall glass of mead to enhance the reading of this fine, engrossing tale of revenge and banishment."

"The Gods Among Us was simply a lot of fun to read. I read the book in a sitting and after getting through the first few pages was hooked by the story. I personally love mythology, horror, fantasy and comics (not the vapid super-hero types) and am a fairly avid reader in general. I certainly enjoy a great story with colorful characters and this book has both. I particularly enjoyed the court scene and for me this is when the characters truly took form and drew me in."

"Just a quick review - classic feuding Gods tale, well told, with the promise of more clashes away from their realm among the humans. Entertaining and very well written."

"What I found inside was a pleasant surprise. This story rocked. I have a personal interest in the stories of the old gods. This brought new life to old stories. William L. Deen is a talented writer. The characters come alive like magic. The tension and excitement is felt from beginning to end. It begins with a court drama torn from the pages of god-like headlines and transforms into a chase across space and time.
When reviewers say a book is a page turner, this one is. When reviewers say a book is too good to put down, this one is. I highly recommend it."
