In the nine hundred years since the gods of antiquity returned to Earth, much has changed. We are no longer masters of our own world.
Tae Rames, a precocious seventeen-year-old downloads a vid she knows she shouldn’t, never realizing the powerful forces that she is about to release. She inadvertently discovers a deadly secret, a secret that someone very dangerous has gone to great lengths to keep hidden. The dead god Loki, may, in fact, still be alive and simply trapped. Despite a desperate attempt at trying to erase the evidence of her snooping, her new enemies track the leak and mistakenly blame her twin brother, kidnapping both him and Tae’s mother to find out what they know. Desperate, and unsure of whom she can trust, Tae decides her only option is to free Loki and plead for his help. But Loki is in the one place no one ever wants to go—the Island—a place where all Earth’s criminals are sent to fight and die, a place from which there is no escape. Worse still, unbeknownst to Tae, an enemy with a twisted hatred of his own has begun to stalk her. Can the intervention of Zeus help when, thanks to a kindly priest, he discovers that something untoward is happening on his least favorite planet. Or will serious complications arise when he is followed by some of the other gods, all of whom are curious to find out exactly what their leader is up to.
Island of the Gods is quite simply one of the most exciting, incredible, mythology-inspired books I have ever read. Island of the Gods has astounded me, I enjoyed every single moment of the book because it was by far a perfect read. The wonderful author of the novel, C.M. Kane is a true literary talent because she managed to captivate and enthrall from the very beginning of this book. To be honest, a part of me was always going to love this book because I love Mythology so much, but even if I did not love mythology, I would still love this book because it has action and adventure and fantastic writing that will keep the reader happy in bliss!
Island of the Gods follows the protagonist of the novel, Tae Rames who is a sweet and somewhat innocent seventeen-year-old who has stumbled across a secret that could change everything. The secret that she has discovered is a secret that has been hidden for a long time, but Tae has discovered this, and the secret is, is that Loki, the God of Mischief might not be dead and might still be alive, but trapped somewhere which is hard to reach. Because I am cautious to spoil the plot of this exceptional novel, this is all I am going to say, but this is a brief premise to an excellent story that is hard to describe because it is so brilliant!
The story of The Island of the Gods is a sensational one because it encompasses everything good about literature. It has an outlandish, brave plot, enthralling characters and famous heroes/ villains, an incredibly well thought out backstory that explains the origins of the entire story and lastly it has impeccable writing that will keep the reader wanting to read for hours on end. Island of the Gods is a unique and special book, it is special for the obvious reasons… that it encompasses everything great about the written word, but it is unique because of the plot. The plot of this novel is something I have never read of or heard of before, it reads like a movie, and you are able to imagine the mythological gods in all of their glory. Never before have I read a book that has a ton of action as well as intellectual depth. In other words, this book has brains behind it, it is not a senseless, quick, action-adventure read. No, it is a look into themes that have been on peoples minds for a long time, and C.M. Kane manages to express all of this while writing a fun and captivating story… she is my hero!
C.M. Kane is a phenomenal writer because she is dedicated to her work as well as passionate. Her passion shines off the page and into the reader’s mind. Her sometimes lengthy, beautiful descriptions will send the readers mind into visual overdrive, the reader will be able to perfectly imagine every detail the reader comes across and that in my opinion, is the sign of a talented author.
To conclude my thoughts on the brilliant piece of literature that is Island of the Gods, I would say if you are looking for a fantasy read that is unlike anything you have read… a read that will keep you entertained for hours on end as well as enthrall you then this sensational book is for you!
