There seemed to be a few too many people willing to be villains but this was a minor annoyance for me. Also some of the characters were too cool and matter of fact and I missed some of the wonder that I would expect from godlings fighting even those living in a mundane world. There were SOME scenes that brought this feeling but I felt more could have been written with a little shock and awe.
The main character was suitably remote emotionally (given his age and nature) and contrasted nicely with the more passionate characters.
The non human "gods" or whatever they were also added some humour with their chat room scenes.
I will buy the next book
I normally do not give authors 5 stars, but in this case I could not find anything wrong. The characters are well established, consistent, interesting, and the tale moves seamlessly.
The story introduces us to the Athanor, an immortal species co-existing with us in contemporary time. The central figure, "The Changer" gives us an interesting character, whose value system is quite unique. Being a shapeshifter who prefers animal shapes and there relationships, causes friction with normal human values and relationships (sorry folks this is as close to one of the plot lines you will get from me).
The premise of the story is intriguing and the flow of story lines and characters kept me turning the pages (I polished off the 499 pages in a weekend - I was hooked).
Being older than dirt (according to the grand children) and apparently outliving the Science Fiction masters of my age, I am continually searching for good authors who will be replacing them. I feel extremely fortunate in finding Ms Lindskold and being able to add her to my list. I look forward to more of her work (maybe some hard SF?). This tale needs to be read as well as this author.
