Wrath of Gods is the second book in the completed Paternus Trilogy, and the follow-up to Dyrk Ashton's critically acclaimed Paternus: Rise of Gods. What a sequel should be - bigger stakes, bloodier action, and even more mythological madness. -Fantasy Book Critic On the run from an ancient evil and his army of terrors straight out of myths from around the world, Fi and Zeke aid Peter in his globe-trotting quest to seek out the remaining Firstborn, uncover the enemy's plans, and gather the warriors of old for what may become the final battle in the world's oldest war. Along the way, Fi and Zeke discover they, too, have strengths of their own-though they come at a cost neither may wish to bear. Named one of the BEST FANTASY BOOKS of 2018 by Fantasy-Faction, Fantasy Book Critic, Booknest, The Fantasy Inn, Novel Notions, You and I Books, Superstar Drifter, The Weatherwax Report, and Ciaran Reviews. A brilliant concoction of mythologies, cultures, and fantasy that fans of urban fantasy definitely must read. -Novel Notions ***** Praise for Paternus: Rise of Gods: An imaginative, exhilarating ride. -Anthony Ryan, NYT Bestselling author of Blood Song and The Legion of Flame Epic, innovative urban fantasy. A great read! -Mark Lawrence, Gemmell Award Winner and international bestselling author of Prince of Thorns and Red Sister Terrific! Paternus is intelligent, intricate, suspenseful, and epic. -Nicholas Eames, Gemmell Award winning author of Kings of the Wyld and Bloody Rose Wow! A crucible in which myths are melted and remade to thrilling effect. -M. R. (Mike) Carey, author of The Girl with All the Gifts and the Felix Castor series A crazier, raunchier American Gods with a healthy dash of Michael Crichton-like rollercoaster pacing and action. -K. S. Villoso, author of The Wolf of Oren-Yaro ***** Genre: Contemporary Fantasy / Urban Fantasy / Mythic Fiction. Market: Adult to New Adult (as opposed to Teen or YA, though savvy 16 or 17 year olds might survive without permanent damage).… (mais)

In over 30 years of reading fantasy, I have never found any author that wields mythology so uniquely and enjoyably as Dyrk Ashton, he isn't happy with just the usual suspects, he casts a wide net.

The narrative style still isn't something I really like and, although the overall dialog is an improvement over book 1, it still is lacking.

That being said, the story is a bloody blast and the action is nearly non stop.

If you are a reader that nitpicks and fixates on something that isn't perfectly polished, then this book may not be for you. However, if you are looking for a unique, fun and inventive story that leaves you adding the next book into your shopping cart in haste, then give this series a go! ( )

Just when I thought this story couldn't get any crazier. Paternus: Wrath of Gods was everything I could hope for in a sequel. Higher stakes, bigger and bloodier action, and even more mythology packed into a story that I seriously thought already featured just about every world myth ever. I was wrong in the best way possible.

The story picks up immediately where book one leaves off, with the Deva starting to gather their forces as they prepare to face the Asura threat. Unlike other books that have a build up, we're off at frenetic speed. Just as you're feeling breathless from all the action, the story slows down as we start to reach the end. This is not to say things get easy for our heroes. Even with the action died down, there is so much tension that I was constantly worrying for the charters and their well being. Turns out I had good cause for that.

I am highly impressed with how well Ashton is able to manage such a large cast of characters. Each one has it's own unique voice and is incredibly well researched. I love all the character interactions as they banter back and forth. It is entertaining and even touching at times. I especially love Mrs. Mirskaya and the Pratha. Zeke and Fi go on nice character arcs, each gaining depth as they learn more about themselves.

Again I listened to the audio book narrated by Nik Magill. Now that I know the trick that his style works better for me at a higher speed I had no issues at all with his narration. Magill does an excellent job at keeping the ever increasing cast of characters distinct. It was always easy to know who was speaking.

This series is just pure fun. I'm greatly looking forward to the final book's release next year. I'm also starting to wish I'd picked up regular (non-audio) copies of these books so I can Google some of the deities I don't know much about. ( )
