Whom the Gods Love – A YA Mythological Sword and Sorcery Fantasy
A king’s quest to save his bride will set in motion a terrible vision long ago prophesied. Cass must conquer harpy-infested plains, dark, forboding forests, and beasts of myth and legend – all to be able to ask the favor of a God. Because the king’s bride is ailing, and conquering everything is the only way to save her. But the God is a mercurial one, and Cass and her group find themselves caught in the struggle between the gods – a struggle that has spanned millenia. Suddenly, their already harrowing pilgrimage is made more complicated, because nothing is easy when the gods have a hand in it.
Whom the Gods Love is a YA mythological sword and sorcery fantasy set in a world of feuding gods. The story revolves around Cass and her group as they go through trials to save the king’s ailing bride, and make their way through the complicated struggle between gods. Fans of The Princess Bride and Sabriel will love this epic fantasythat will keep you breathless long after the last page.
What Readers Are Saying
I’m a huge fan of mythology and this book certainly plays to that love. You can immediately tell that this book is well thought out, well laid out, well written and extravagantly loved.” – K, Amazon reviewer ★★★★★
As a fan (and sometimes writer) of fantasy, I’m always looking for stories with an original approach. This book definitely is that and I enjoyed it very much. The characters are appealing and well drawn (I especially liked the new slant on the motivation of warriors) and the author has created a mythology with gods misbehaving much like Greek or Norse deities.” – Bobby Craton, Amazon reviewer ★★★★★
Whom the Gods Love is the story of a journey undertaken by a group including 2 heroes, one old crone, a young man, and a King. Their dangerous quest to find a cure for the Queen’s illness was immediately absorbing, and the story never let me down. The final page left me waiting for the next book in the series.” – Booked4Life, Amazon reviewer ★★★★★
