Newbie gods Connor, Sally and Locky want to change the world, no biggie. When their first attempted miracle doesn’t quite go to plan, they find themselves at odds with their families, the media and each other. To make matters worse, they’re drawn into a centuries old conflict between the gods of Love and Fear that just might destroy the world they’re striving to make better.
I really enjoyed this book and the characters! Like the first one, it was a lot of fun to read however this installment of the duology takes us on more of an emotional adventure as well as the fantasy adventure. I loved how the relationships developed in this book between the characters we met in Monuments: Connor, Sally and Locky… (Locky will always be my personal favourite). I also love the relationship between Connor and his mum and how that changed too not just when Connor comes of age but when he’s acquired his new power and responsibility.
Fast paced, whitty, fun and action packed – over all a great read. I can also see how the author grows each time he writes a new book, it always seems to be a step better than the last although all his books a great. This duology is highly recommended for fans who enjoy fantasy fiction set in a contemporary times with great friendships, mythology and adventure.
With special thanks to Date a Book YA – Hachette Publishers Australia for sending me a copy of this book and for having me on board the Rebel Gods Book Tour.
