The villain this time out is, for my money, more compelling than the original and poses a more significant threat. To Michelle Belanger's credit, she's made this potentially global threat come down to a very personal struggle with very tangible stakes. What's more impressive is the way this very small conflict weaves into both the mystery of Zack's past as well as the detailed history of the world that is slowly being revealed.
The fact that this series is only on its Sophmore installment and has already fleshed out its characters and world so well is truly a testament to the potential it has in the long term. Even greats like Jim Butcher and Seanan McGuire took a few books to get their bearings within their worlds, while Belanger has seemed comfortable with it since book one and it shows.
If you're a fan of Urban Fantasy you really should check this series out now. If you wait, you'll be late to the party.
Ultimately, the story, to me, boils down to a debate on one of the oldest arguments... Do the results justify the means, if the road that takes you to success against evil is paved with destroyed lives?"
We return to Cleveland, where apparently more #&*+ hits the fan with the return of Lil, Zach, and people from Zach's forgotten past. Zach faces temptation, despair, and disgust in equal measure after people who know him, but he can't remember, come back into his life, drama in their wake.
Michelle Belanger weaves an intricate story that, like "Conspiracy of Angels", the previous book in this series, makes you beg for more.
I cannot wait for the novella that is being released this fall or for the next full novel installment of this series. 10/10 would recommend.
If only Zack had some forewarning... Maybe he should have answered his phone these past two weeks?
Full of colorful characters and intense action, "Harsh Gods" is Supernatural-meets-Dresden Files if they both crashed face-first into the Book of Enoch. Good stuff.
