After Kissen sacrificed herself to destroy fire god Hseth, King Arren’s plans for godhood failed, but he has another route to divinity: harnessing his people’s love to become the god-king Sunbringer. Former knight Elo and Inara, daughter of a rebel house Arren destroyed, will do anything to stop him. They don’t know that Kissen survived and has learned that Hseth will rise again, strengthened by an army of believers. The only force that can stand against Hseth is Arren, but can godkiller Kissen bring herself to save a god? Shaken by the aftermath of events from Godkiller, Elo is torn over whether he can kill his former friend, Inara feels abandoned as adults around her plan rebellion, and Kissen fights to return to her companions. While separated, the three build new alliances, and Inara discovers the truth behind her connection to god Skedi. The brisk writing keeps the plot moving and reunites the characters in a conclusion that sets up a dramatic final installment.
VERDICT The second book in the “Fallen Gods” series delves more deeply into Godkiller’s characters and world, with human vs. divine battles and a found family that will appeal to fans of The Witcher.
