Too much sarcasm, and ready responses
on May 28, 2014
The story line is still good of course. You'll have to read this to continue to know Ash's story. Get ready for a snarky ride though. I don't know what it was with this book, but it seemed like every character was constantly on. Every conversation was filled with ready responses, and a whole lot of sarcasm. Including our all powerful, laid back, man of few words, constant hero, God of all Gods, Ash. His demeanor was more like (before death) Nick, then an all powerful God, take no prisoners Ash. I do agree with other reviews that it was taxing on the nerves, Gods bickering like new age teenagers. Gods as old as time, spending most of their time in other realms, are using cell phones, updated sarcasm, slang, fashion, etc.. It was not much different from reading a YA novel, just with the racey sex scenes included. But like I said you still have to read it to learn more about our unfailing hero Ash. So with that in mind I'll give it 3 stars, because it continues a series I have been enjoying. I do believe that Kenyon is stretching the mark from where she started with the first few books though. I would like to see her get back to some of that again.
