This book brought that wonder and awe back to the forefront for me, and more than that, I am now going to actively search out more books involving Olympus and the gods because of the thrill I’ve had here. Mooney’s release of Godhead’s sequel, The Hades Contract, can’t come soon enough.
The book ramps and builds suspense. Aphrodite and Hannah were my favorite characters, both intense and wonderful, and as this book came to a close I was on the edge of my seat, imbedded in the action.
Mooney writes Olympus in high form.
From the opening prologue, the reader is pulled into a tale that could have been written by Homer himself, gods at war with each other, battling for supremacy. He moves on from there to a more modest setting, but doesn't keep us there for long, as we suddenly find our protagonists squaring off against the exact same foe that Zeus and Hera found themselves struggling to contain. . . Aphrodite.
And Aphrodite is where this tale really hits its stride. In this goddess, Mooney has managed to create a villain that the reader both immediately hates and yearns to learn more about. She uses everything at her disposal to get her way, and even has an evil henchman to assist her dastardly deeds.
By the end of the book we are stuck craving the next piece of this tale. I can only hope that Mooney doesn't take too long to give us what we desire.
What struck me about Godhead is how well-written this book is. Ken Mooney is a gifted writer, no doubt. I'm really impressed with his manner of writing, ability at characterization and description. I was hooked from the beginning, both by the Prologue which was set in Olympus and by the opening chapters set in a town (or city?) of Carthin. The rest of the book doesn't disappoint as the author does a great job weaving Greek mythology with Paranormal Fantasy, setting them in modern times.
The characters are really well done. I felt for Megan who lost her granddad. I was so interested in Karl who also had a person he loved and lost. Hannah and Unity are also great characters who had their mysteries. It is through the flashbacks that we get to know all these characters better. The appearance of a traitor in the book was quite a surprise to me. I totally didn't see it coming, but I'm not going to spoil the fun for those who are going to read this novel.
There's lots of action in the book, and I enjoyed the scenes as they were visual and I could easily see everything I was reading about as if I was watching a movie. And the ending leaves me wanting for more.
GODHEAD is such an impressive mix of Greek mythology, fantasy and horror that I'm sure this book will stay with me long after I've finished reading it. I definitely look forward to reading Book 2 in the series.
The characters are deep, diverse, and...smart, which was quite refreshing.
The villains are bad, yet strangely sympathetic. While there's never any doubt who's committing the evils, if you're not careful you'll start to find your loyalties divided.
The action is tense, and the descriptions are vivid. This isn't a book to rush through, but take your time and enjoy it.
Hard to tell what exactly was going on in the beginning of this book. The end was predictable, I thought. Also, I realized through the reading of this story that I get really annoyed if there are more than 3 italicized words on one page. I'm probably not going to read the continued story.
