One of the best you'll read

The story:

A childhood tragedy forces Sable to flee her home, change her identity, and eke out a meager existence in a land that doesn’t want her there. When her past catches up to her, she’s forced seek protection from Jos, a mysterious man with a past of his own. With an evil necromancer on her tail, Sable must finally face what she’s tried do desperately to escape.


What I loved:

I adored Barbara Kloss’s Pandoran series because of her phenomenal world-building and beautiful writing style, and Gods of Men continued that pattern. Sable and Jos are portrayed as flawed individuals, struggling to find their place in a world rampant with prejudice and cruelty. I worried they would not have much chemistry when they finally met, but I was wrong. Their story arcs, both together and separate, are compelling and wonderfully written.


What I didn’t love:

Honestly … nothing comes to mind.


My Final Verdict:

Some authors’ works a good. Some are great. And some are in that upper echelon where you know you’re going to love it before you’ve even read a single word. Barbara Kloss is in that category for me, and I think she will be for you too.
