Once I discovered this book, people were saying and all the Goodreads reviews say that this is simply a ripoff of The Hunger Games… but I said this before, but I need to say it again. This is nothing like The Hunger Games and if you read that somewhere, don’t pay attention.
I came to this after I finished reading I am Number 4, and I see the small similarities and this one is a bit more precise than I am Number 4. I love the idea to make this book so interactive, but all those clues to resolve a puzzle seems too time-consuming, but the idea was incredible.
I haven’t read a book packed with so much action, killing, and different characters like this before. It is a bit cruel with touches of divine justice, with unrealistic abilities and mercenary attitudes, but I guess with the right training, we all can be what the myths have said: killing machines with control over one’s body and mind.
The story goes around the end of the world and a game to save our people or clan. You have been trained for this, trained like all those before you. You have no limits. The faith of your loved ones and the world is at stake. Money, corruption, criminality, you chose how to play and of course you choose your weapon. An element I love about this author is that they take you sightseeing. I was in Peru, I was next to Terracotta Army, I was in China, and Tuscany! If you can’t go out, read this book! I will take you everywhere!
This is not country bound, go where you have to go and do it now. This novel was a good way to escape the lock down, but also a reminder that the end is near. Personally speaking, something I love about this book is who they use real places, mythological stories and places, all-time secrets, and mysteries to develop a high-quality adventure story. My dad has been obsessing over the anunnaki for months already, and they were here, and all my dad has learn from them is also in this book. I enjoy a lot when authors uses real myths and stories to give a sense of reality to their fictitious stories!
There are two more books in the series, but I am still not sure if it is just another book and the third one is a novella, but I have them all, and I cannot wait for 2021 to start the new book in the saga!
