    Against all odds, - A God has returned - to Earth. Chance Kyrien is turning seventeen, and on this day he will be confirmed as a Puriman and learn the shape of his life to come. Young Chance is ambitious, rebellious, but also fiercely devout, and his only thoughts are about farming and wine-making - and marrying the girl he loves. But in a shocking burst of violence, Chance's dreams are shattered. Now he must survive against hellish forces to face his ultimate foe: a long-forgotten god whose destiny is intertwined with his own.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    For me, it took a while to get into the story and relate to the characters - about a quarter of the way into the book. But after that, I was all in. I felt the losses the characters felt, and their passions and their plight.


    Any additional comments?

    The end was satisfying and left me thinking about the characters and the world for days after finishing the book.

    Story

    I enjoyed The Giver very much. This book, though similar, built up certain suspicious circumstances in great detail. But the climax simply consisted of Kira identifying that these things were happening. That was it, it was the end.

    I really would have enjoyed some kind of outcome. After having discovered some terrible things going on, it would have been nice for Kira to be able to achieve some kind of resolution to the situation, or at least an explanation.

    Perhaps the third book will continue to bring it together - other reviewers have said as much. I'll see, and am looking forward to that one.
