Publisher's summary

My skill set brings all the girls to the yard.

And by yard, I mean the temple of a young goddess who's using me to build a fortified city around herself before the god of war can finish slaying every deity in the heavens.

He'd better not find us before we're ready. Spoiler: We're far from ready.

But hey, I get a cool skill out of it. The goddess allows me to view anyone's strength, vivacity, and other attributes as though they were numbers on a menu and then use their life experiences to make them stronger. I can unlock their special skills, too, and it's all stuff no one else can see.

Hence the girls: a beastkin builder, a negotiatrix made of slime, a half-elf gypsy who charms snakes - and more - seeking safe refuge and a place to belong.

Think our ragtag group can survive a divine onslaught of apocalyptic proportions? I know what I think. Come on in and find out.

I received this book free of charge for an honest review. kid survives an attack that kills the rest in his city. while escaping meets a God and becomes her priest. in order to avoid the fate of his previous home he must build a city that will withstand the attacking force, in his travels he eventually gains followers who come back with him for a life where all are equal instead of the lower classes they were treated as in their previous communities. that's a boring summary but I personally liik forward to maybe seeing more of this series
