Of course War God is not his first venture into fiction, his book Entangled was his first. As a teenager I read The Sign & the Seal followed by Fingerprints of the Gods which changed my entire worldview as I am sure it did for many. I can say without reservation that War God had me turning the pages as quickly as did any of Hancock's non fiction and any other novels that I have read from any author over the last half dozen years.
Hancock has an amazing writing style that enables the reader to literally feel like you are there, and this is part of the reason he has been so successful in his earlier works.
War God is fantastic. Both wonderful and in parts brutal, just like the period and the events described therein. War God deserves a chance and I am here to tell any reader that this book is worth every penny which will have you mesmerised as it did me. BUY IT NOW.
I especially liked the weaving of the known history with the Supernatural in a way that is totally in keeping with the cultures in question. It took me awhile to realize what was going on with "The" War God - and I won't say anymore and be a spoiler but lets just say once I did figure it out I think I understood things a lot better.
The only reason I didn't give this book five stars is that I was a little overwhelmed by extremely detailed battle scenes which I'm sure my husband would love (we've both done a lot of historical re-enactment and he does fighting) but eventually just made me feel a bit lost and like I wanted my story back. I think this is a personal preference in reading styles, so those who like military fiction are likely to really enjoy these pages, but I just can't handle them after while (and I feel the same way about the long battle scenes that are sometimes in my husband's own novels).
I also felt just a tiny bit unconnected having so many point of view personages to follow, again I realize this is a popular modern style of writing and useful when you have multiple stories to tie together. But I couldn't help remember how gripped I felt reading the novel AZTEC years ago, which is done as an "autobiography" of the view point personage; and while I thought Mr. Jennings went way over the top in his descriptions of some of the darker stuff, I did feel very connected to his point of view Character; whereas in War God I felt most connected to Tozi the young "witch" girl and Pepito (a young boy of similar age).Read more ›
The characters are extremely well written and easy to relate to, the plot is very engaging and makes it difficult to put the book down. It is written in such a way that you actually feel sorry for some of the darker characters at times and makes you feel that there are positive and negative aspects on both sides of the conflict. There are no good guys and bad guys here, just many shades of red and gold.
I'm sure this book will one day find it's way into the national curriculum as one of the most accurate and in depth portrayals of a previously forgotton period of history.
This is a very important book for the way it captures a perfect snapshot of a brutal moment in america's history and also because it shows that Mr Hancock is set to become one of the heavy hitters in the world of fiction.
I patiently await the sequel to this and also entanglement which has some strong thematic connections to war god.
War God is a hefty book, but the story is exceptionally well written, and each chapter ends with a cliffhanger making you want to continue reading more.
When I initially opened the book I was a bit skeptical, and afraid that the story was going to densely overwritten with heavy handed amounts of unnecessary details and historical minutia. This was not at all the case. War God has a large cast of characters, but Graham proves himself to be a remarkable story-teller with a talent and understanding of how to write an epic historical novel without boring the reader.
The amount of historical research that must of went into the writing of War God is impressive, and Graham uses his knowledge of ancient Mexico to bring that era alive for the reader. War God pulls no punches when it comes to depicting the cruelty and violence of the historical setting, the battles and action sequences are brutal and fast-paced. There is also a fascinating thread of the supernatural and exotic magic woven throughout the story, which I'm sure those interested in the paranormal will no doubt enjoy.Read more ›
