Younger Gods based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
THE YOUNGER GODS features Jacob Greene, one of ‘the’ Greenes, a family of cultists who long to awaken the Younger Gods. He was a good boy, following orders, but when they betrayed him in an unspeakable way, even for the Greenes he decided to leave. He enrolled in college in New York, a loner who renounced his family and their beliefs, in order to learn about the world his family told him was only full of cattle. When his older sister comes to town to wake a Younger God and start the apocalypse, Jacob must band together with other practitioners to stop this new threat. THE YOUNGER GODS is the start of what seems to be a fabulous new series. Jacob drew me in, vulnerable and awkward, with a strong sense of who he is and what he must do when the threat becomes real. The world the author has created is complex with an air of reality, the action is quick and brutal, and the characters really grow on you. I hope we learn more about each of the characters in future books in this series. THE YOUNGER GODS will appeal to fans of fun urban fantasy.
**I received a copy of this story for an honest review When I started reading this book, I was excited to be reading a book in a genre I like but sounded different from the other stories I'd read. Unfortunately, I just couldn't get into the story. I had a problem with the plot the farther I read. It was a bit much for me. However, I can say the author did a great job with the actual writing itself. The main character, Jacob, is very well written. His tone and lack of any knowledge of our world make him genuinely unique.
