Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book. 30 years ago, the Greek gods re-emerged into the modern world from their enforced sleep. Since then, scions, direct descendants of those gods, have been doing their bidding and keeping the human population safe from the mythical beats of old. Derek and his 18 year old brother Liam, are war scions, doing the bidding of Ares, the god of war. Ares orders Derek to find and kill four rogue scions, by threatening Liam and Derek will do anything to keep his brother safe. But not all is as it seems, and Derek, Liam and the four scions find themselves in a battle to keep the mighty Titans at sleep. **insert sigh** For the most part,I did enjoy this. It took a while for me to get into it. There are several HUGE info dumps near the beginning and I didn't like that., It came at you all in one go, and I did not process all of that information, there was so much. It meant I got lost a little in places later on. But it's all the history of the gods that dumps on you. You don't get all of Derek and Liam's history in that dump. That comes out in dribs and drabs, slow enough for you to process their history, before the next bit is thrown at you. And I think there may be more to come, I really do. It is HEAVY on the fighting. Derek, Liam and the scions do a lot of fighting and it is described in all its detail. A bit too much for me. Only Derek has his say, in the first person. I think if Liam, and maybe one of the scions, Selena, had their say too, even in the first, I might have enjoyed this one a little more. I DID like the story itself, info dump and fighting aside, I did not see a lot coming at me, kept me on my toes. There is something brewing between Derek and Selena, and I hope that plays out how I see playing out! But Derek has more secrets to reveal, some I don't think he even knows about yet. And he still has to get out of the war pact made with Ares, but to do that, Derek has to do what Ares asked him to. Derek does not want to do that now. Will I read the next book?? Yes, I'd like to, if only to see how this all goes down. So, because of the massive info dump, and because only Derek has a say.... 3 solid good stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

I received a free copy of Storm of the Gods an Arieos Brother Novel by A.R. Braun in exchange for an honest review. The Greek gods have come back, and it’s not a good thing; the gods treat humans as disposable toys. This story is told from the viewpoint of Derek Arios. Derek is an employ and a descendant of Ares, god of war. Derek has spent his entire traumatic life protecting his younger brother Liam, and Ares has no compunction about using Liam against Derek. When Derek learns of a conspiracy against the gods, his loyalty initially leads him in working to foil the conspiracy. However, once the investigation advances, Derek’s loyalties are swayed from his patron/ancestor; he defies Ares and joins the conspiracy. However, Derek’s loyalty to his brother is implacable; Liam is a weakness that can be used to bring Derek to heel. I liked this book and would be interested in reading the future books in the series. The only drawback is that Liam is spoiled and incredibly whiney/blamey whenever Derek does whatever necessary to save their lives instead of just letting the “bad” guys kill them all. Liam never fails to be unappreciative of all Derek does for him. #StormOfTheGods #NetGalley

I haven’t read anything by this author before, so I’m new to her writing. First off, let me say that she is an excellent writer. I found most of the characters fun and interesting, and the plot was unique and full of action. California ruled by Greek gods? Yes, please! I do admit to some confusion at the beginning of the book because there were all kinds of different types of gods/elements/scions/etc., but once I got used to all the information or at least knew enough to ignore the ones I didn’t really need to know, I settled in and enjoyed the book. And the second half of the book just flew by because I was enjoying myself so much, and there was a lot of action to keep me engaged. The thing that sold the book for me was that I want to read the next one to see what’s going to happen next. If you like Greek mythology, you will love this book. If you don’t, I think you will still like it. Give it a try! Highly recommend! I was provided a complimentary copy of the e-book which I reviewed voluntarily.
