The mingling of Titans, Gods, and mortals; threads time, souls, faiths, myths and legends.
From ancient Mesopotamia through present; rebirth and ascension through Sumerian, Greek, and Egyptian deities; galactic warfare and rebellion; genesis and anima; the Gods engage and intervene in the future of mortals and themselves.
Written in the form of three interspersed books with artifacts of history and love letters; SW Hammond’s debut novel is an epic story with exquisite prose and the depth and scope of meticulous research.
The Final Book: Gods is S.W. Hammond's first foray into an enticing world of gods and mortals. Spanning four millennia of mortal interaction with the divine, the story follows a path that will be both familiar to Assassin's Creed fans and at the same time something all its own.
At its heart, The Final Book: Gods takes a very interesting view of religious development and as a result has a strong message to put forward. It is perhaps for this reason that the book is described as "a controversial last chapter of humanity."
Should readers be able to get beyond this 'controversial' theme they will find an extremely well written tome that certainly deserves a place on any bookshelf. What's more, S.W. Hammond has revealed that Gods is intended as the first part in a trilogy, so there's plenty more to look forward to in the future.
This book was completely refreshing and unexpected... It blended a little bit of everything, from sci-fi to mythology and fantasy.
It got me rethinking the Greek pantheon and everything I've known about the origins of Christianity.
This is the first time I've read anything with references to Sumerian mythology in it and I really appreciated that. Will recommend!
LisaSuch a great read, loved the story and the characters. Would love to read more, please write more !!!! Also please consider getting this on TV.
I really enjoyed this book. The characters were well adapted, the storyline was well layered and intriguing, and overall I just found the whole idea behind this book really interesting.
The only thing I wasn't the biggest fan of were the in-between-chapter little segments, where it was like an office memo or typed up court proceeding. Other than that though, really good book and definitely a recommendation.
Jodie CookThe Final Book: Gods was a great story about gods, humans, romance, and the fall of humanity. However, the religious connotations and history mean you need to have a decent grasp of religion, especially that of the Greek Gods so it did lead to a little Googling on my part. But it was a good story.
