3.0 out of 5 stars Of Gods and Monsters, 27 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: ReDeus: Divine Tales (Kindle Edition)
In 2012, the old gods returned. All of them. The Olympians, the Celtic, the Norse, The Native American and Mexican... this anthology of stories is set against the background of a world redefined by the return of the ancient powers, and their demand to be worshipped. The book reminds me most of the Wild Cards anthologies, but without a framing story. Each tale introduces different characters and scenarios against the backdrop, and adds new layers to an altered world. I enjoyed the smaller stories the most, little moments in little lives redefined by the return of the gods, while bigger tales of extraordinary events left me a little disinterested, but overall the standard of the stories is consistently high. My only complaint is that several of the most interesting seem to be the start of something that doesn't conclude here - character introductions and origins that set up possibilities to be explored later, but which are never returned to. It could be that a further volume will revisit them, but it's annoying that some of these potentially intriguing tales offer little by way of an interim conclusion, and so leave the anthology on its own feeling incomplete.
