What can I say? This book exceeded ALL my expectations. I received a free ARC in exchange for an honest review and this one kept me up way past my bedtime trying to get thru just one more chapter.
I re-read the series from the beginning and will come back to it again and again. It was just such. a. good. story.
Mr Ashton did a masterful job interweaving mythologies from multiple cultures into the story along with a enough magic (and science) to satisfy me. I cannot wait to get the finished book and will definitely buy the audio as well. Run, don't walk when this one is released. ( )

I described book 1 as "Take every myth ever, put them in a high speed blender, pick up where their eon spanning war most recently left off and drop it all on top of two unsuspecting college kids volunteering at a nursing home" and book 2 as "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 didn't think it was possible and I have no idea how he did it. Dyrk Ashton pulled out all the stops, cranking up the dial on everything I loved about the two installments by adding even more myths, raising the stakes yet again and packing an emotional punch in the best way possible. Paternus: War of Gods is insanely epic and a highly satisfying end to the Paternus trilogy.

With a blood-curdling cry, the Deva charge down the slope, and the final battle of the last Great War begins in earnest.

The story picks up where the last book leaves off. There's not much time for Fi, Zeke, Peter and the rest to mourn their losses. The Maha yuga is coming to an end and the Deva must finish their preparations before meeting their enemies in battle, the outcome of which will ripple across multiple worlds.

There are so many things I loved about this book it is making it difficult to write this review. If I go on about everything I enjoyed, we'd be here all day. To keep it simple, let me try a top 5 list:

• Fi and Zeke's training as they discover their own powers and learn how to use them
• Meeting the twins, who are hilarious and bad ass in equal measure
• The Prathamaja Nandana
• Incredible, cinematic battles
• How emotionally invested I became with the characters, both Deva and Asura

The first half of the book, while not lacking in action or drama, is the calm before the storm. Once the battle begins, all hell breaks loose. This is war. No characters are safe and there are plenty of surprises to be had in the chaos of battle. Consider yourself warned.

I finished this series as I began, with the audio book narrated by Nik Magil. Magil picked up the gauntlet thrown down by Ashton and successfully kept the ever expanding cast of character's voices distinct from each other. Job well done.

I'm going to have to give mythology-based fantasy a break for a while as I don't think other books will be able to stand up compared to what Ashton has achieved with War of Gods. For UF fans or anyone who enjoys mythology-based fantasy and also enjoys well written action, you need to give this series a try. For me, the Paternus trilogy has placed Dyrk Ashton as one of my favorite independent authors. I'm looking forward to whatever Ashton writes next. ( )
