Sammy H K Smith is simply an excellent story teller. I admire her work and hope one day to be as well tuned to the craft as she is. Thank you, Sammy for writing such an entertaining novel. I am happy I had the privilege to read it.
“Good to see you, Adders! Dragons are going to help then, eh?” The cat stood and stretched.
“Yes, a female hatchling will be joining us soon to fly us to Linder.”
“Female, eh?” Sheiva’s interest was sparked. “Didn’t think the old lizard would send one of his ladies.”
“Apparently she is the closest, and the fastest flyer in this region, although I have been warned she can be a handful.”
“All dragons are a handful, the females are just a little more…fiery,” The fae snickered at his own joke.
I am looking forward to the next book in this thrilling series.
The novel follows Chaeli, who finds out she is a demi-goddess, and takes her across the seven realms as she finds out who she is, what she is, and why she even exists when the gods forbade any mortal children. Accompanying her is the scrummy Nathan, an assassin turned good, and the pious Adley, a protector from the eternal kingdom. They both feel as though they must protect and guide her.
Chaeli, is a strong female character who is greatly a pleasure to watch unfold throughout the novel. She's loud-mouthed and puts her foot in it so many times, and initially I didn't think I'd like her. I didn't understand why these men were attracted to her - until I realised they were under a geas.
The plot is also amazingly done well, we have 8 or 9 different POV characters and by the end, all their stories are cleverly intertwined. Smith's writing style makes the plot stand out with her ability to form sentences that are able to reel her reader into the novel and hook them.
In Search of Gods and Heroes is truly a great read and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a dark epic read about Gods, Demigods, and Heroes. Sammy Smith's debut truly hits home and I can't wait to read the second novel in the series.
So, what is the book about? Chaeli, who thought she was an ordinary girl before she lost all her family, now finds she is a demi-god and either the daughter of the Prince of the Eternal Kingdom, or the Prince of the Underworld. Both are fighting for her, but not everyone plays fairly. On her shoulders rests the outcome of a war between the two princely brothers and to help her decision she has three companions. Adley is a crusader, an champion of the Eternal Kingdom, who is in love with her and shouldn't be. Nathan is a former assassin affiliated to the Underworld who is trying to break free and also is enthralled by Chaeli. The third is a shapeshifting fae, normally appearing in the form of a talking cat and one of my favorite characters.
Other people are tied up in the outcome and have their part to play. How all this ties together will be revealed on reading the book. Very highly recommended.
