About the book:
When you live in a world pullulating with gods, can you truly be an atheist? Well, yes…if you know a way to get rid of them. Mysantheos, a fanatic atheist at the head of a powerful lobby/terrorist organization, has created a weapon able to kill gods and his kamikaze army is ready to attack.
As the divine bodies pile up, resentment builds at Gods Incorporated and violent factions start pushing for the extermination of the human race, and the CEO/Queen Louhi is running out of ideas to calm them down. Hopefully, her black ops teams are doing better. But will the Nerds and Richard (a down-on-his-luck private eye), saddled as they are with a group of angry gods, manage to find Mysantheos before all hell breaks loose?
About the author:
Gabriele Russo was born in Quebec City amidst a family of book lovers – her father had dreamed of being a writer and both of her brothers are published authors.
Since she earned her Bachelor’s in History, it was no surprise (except to her) that she ended up working in restaurants, eventually owning two, which almost drove her mad. She sold them and was nursed back to pseudo-sanity by Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchett.
That’s when she answered the family calling and decided to write. Armed with her ideas for the Gods Inc. series she went back to University and got her Master’s in Creative Writing.
She now lives with her husband in Virginia, where she divides her time between painting, teaching French and Creative Writing, playing tennis and, of course, writing more books.
Just to let you guys know ahead of time, this book and it’s predecessor aren’t exactly kid appropriate. Just to let all the people looking for a new book for their little sibling, not appropriate. Sorry guys.
Humans are turning away from the gods and turning to science to explain their world. Thor and the weather gods are trying to get the other gods to kill all humans. God, AKA, the Big G (yes, God’s in this too), is most definitely against this. Just thought I should point this out now.
Not only are humans being, well, humans (no offense), gods are dying. Yes, dying. I know, I know, god’s can’t die. That’s the problem here! And the gods know it! And thus the search begins for how gods can die, and the dumb mortal who can kill them.
Okay, that’s the book in a nutshell, with a sort-of-cliffhanger. Okay, I told you guys that that this series isn’t for young kids? I mean, if letting them read books with cursing and stuff like that works for you, more power to you. I just wouldn’t recommend it.
Okay, this book gets three of five stars because I am just, not feeling this series because, as I have said before, the concept didn’t call out to me. It didn’t really hold my interest, which, if you’re like me and can’t really read a book that doesn’t hold your interest, makes it hard to read. Really, the only thing I look forward to in this series is Louhi, but even then it’s still hard to read when my mind isn’t so into the story that I jump when my timer goes off on my screen.
Sorry to insult any readers of this series. I like stories of gods, but this just doesn’t do it for me.
