Publisher's Summary

The first in a new series from the author of Geekomancy (pop culture urban fantasy) and Shield and Crocus (New Weird superhero fantasy).

Jacob Greene was a sweet boy raised by a loving, tight-knit family... of cultists. He always obeyed, and was so trusted by them that he was the one they sent out on their monthly supply run (food, medicine, pig fetuses, etc.). Finding himself betrayed by them, he flees the family's sequestered compound and enters the true unknown: college in New York City. It's a very foreign place, the normal world and St. Mark's University. But Jacob's looking for a purpose in life, a way to understand people, and a future that breaks from his less-than-perfect past. However, when his estranged sister arrives in town to kick off the apocalypse, Jacob realizes that if he doesn't gather allies and stop the family's prophecy of destruction from coming true, nobody else will...

    "Great job!"

    Excellent book and great narration! I really enjoyed this one and can't wait for the next. Best urban fantasy I've listened to in a while.

    "Wonderful story twist to keep your attention..."
    What did you love best about The Younger Gods?

    The Younger Gods is an Urban Fantasy title definately worth a read or listen. The main character, Jacob Green, just wants to live a normal life...and unfortunately the past of his family and roots refuse to let that happen.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The awkwardness of Jacob's character as he works with those drawn into stopping the apocalypse his estranged sister kicks off is endearing...in an odd way.


    Have you listened to any of Luke Daniels’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I'm looking foward to the continuation of this story and hopefully Luke Daniels will continue to narrate the Audiobook versions. Daniels adds an additional level of character to tie this book together nicely and his versitility to give each person within a book still amazes me. His performance in this title is as excellent as the other's I've picked up in the past.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Family, it can raise you up...or drive you mad...


    Any additional comments?

    This is one of the best new titles I've picked up to take a chance on and I wasn't disappointed. I was hooked from the beginning and left both amused and questioning what happens next at the end.

    "Maybe it's just me - You'll probably like it"

    This was a solid attempt at a new fantasy. I feel like it has everything you'd like in a fantasy series. Magical main character with Family issues. Non Magical knight being all knightly. Smart witted, clever friend who has a bit of talent in magic. Villians who aren't afraid to kill (a lot) with a family connection to main character. Vampires, werewolves, witches, wraithes, college, knights, etc. And finally a modern city ready to fight for it's life.

    Everything right, but in reality, it just didn't roll off the tongue like you'd like. I want it to be good, but I just can't say that it was. It certianly wasn't bad, it just didn't have the depth or desire that you'd like it to have. But maybe it's just me. You'll probably like it.

    Narrator was fine I guess. Nothing special. You certainly couldn't blame him for anything which is saying something.
