A Seamless Cultural and Mythological Blending
26 March 2018
I really enjoyed Godhunter. I could get behind the sass and wit of the main character, Vervain, and the whole book is from her POV so we get a lot of it. I also enjoyed Sumida’s portrayal of the gods; she got creative with using many of the different gods original stories and set their personalities from those stories and legends, which I am a fan of. I also liked the use of different cultural themes and settings, I feel like we get to explore different parts of the world.
I do feel a little hypocritical saying this, as normally I complain that books are too short, but I felt that this first book in the series might have been a tad too long. I also think that there needs to be a trigger warning, for even though it is quite lighthearted at times, Godhunter has its darker chapters; do not be fooled by anyone’s reviews, this is not a YA novel (thank god).
Greek gods, Indian gods, Native American gods, Aztec gods, Norse gods, Witches, Vampires and Werewolves (sorry if I missed any). A kick butt heroine, hot men, magic, and more movie references than is nearly acceptable. Godhunter is a hot mess of a mashup of myths and religions. I can see why the series has a following, and I’m looking forward to continuing reading about Vervain’s story in the next book.
