The action never stops in L.R. Trovillion’s “False Gods.” Just when a reader thinks teenage Cory overcomes a significant obstacle, another stands in her way. Dad left Mom; Mom moves to a new place; Cory must adjust; and nothing makes it easy. “False Gods” is the story of a self-admitted quitter who grows with each new challenge. Cory suffers setbacks, but readers can enjoy watching her strengthen from each mistake. Trovillion creates memorable and believable characters and leaves enough to the reader’s imagination about each of them to keep it interesting. The description of the horse auction provides a realistic setting most people would not like to experience in person, but can through this book. “False Gods” is an outstanding book with many twists and turns, and I highly recommend it for not only horse lovers, but anyone looking for a good read.
