This year I’m going to host an Advent Book Calendar event, where Jen and me are going to pick one book every day until December 24th. Books we’ve read this year, and tell you why you should pick it up. You can check our progress in the Advent Book Calendar 2018 introduction post, where you can “open” the windows every day and find out what we have for your reading pleasure!
Today, I’m going with the second book of a trilogy. I’ve read both of the already published books this year, but while I had problems with the first book, the second improved considerably. I was a bit wary, because of said issues, but at the time I already agreed to read book 2, so I went for it. And I wasn’t disappointed. I still don’t think books written in present tense are my thing, but myhtology definitely is. And boy, we get enough mythological figures worth two or three books! And a huge amount of action. Even though I still don’t really feel the main characters, the side characters more than make up for it: Myrddin, Freya and Edward are all figures you can’t help but love. Oh, and let’s not forget about Tanuki and the big ass sneak either. Also, this was the first review for which I choose a song 🙂
“Wrath of Gods is a hell of a ride, which won’t leave you bored, and most probably will break your heart. Fast paced, brutal, gripping and it’s full of surprises. I haven’t enjoyed an urban fantasy this much for a while now. “
On the run from an ancient evil and his army of terrors straight out of myths from around the world, Fi and Zeke aid Peter in his globe-trotting quest to seek out the remaining Firstborn, uncover the enemy’s plans, and gather the Warriors of Old for what may become the final battle in the world's oldest war. Along the way, Fi and Zeke discover that they, too, have strengths of their own--though they come at a cost neither may wish to bear.
