Even though THE DAY OF THE NEW GODS is a prequel to THE MIRROR OF THE NAMELESS, you can read these in whichever order suits your fancy. I've read MIRROR twice now, and both times left me wanting-at least as far as more information about the 3 "Gods." In DAY, I finally got a bit of an origin story and it did not disappoint.
A small group of bank robbers has their plans change unexpectedly during their getaway. A huge giant appears, bits of which fall off at random- burning and killing people, but really? That's not that big a deal, because there's also an eerie green mist which turns people into mad, murdering, gibbering things, until it wisps off and people discover what they have done. Then they usually kill themselves. I didn't even bring up the huge, white worm yet! What will happen to our group of thieves? What happens to all of these monsters and how how they did here? You'll have to read this to find out!
I've been a fan of Luke Walker's for a while now, and when I was offered a chance to finally see how these gods came about I jumped at the chance. I find this world to be imaginative, unyielding and pretty much insane. It's perfect for me! We all know, deep down inside, that the cosmos doesn't care for us-but what if it were personified? Now it's, (they're) walking around earth, (or floating or slithering), demonstrating how useless we really are and what's more scary than that? Not too much!
At a few points, the pacing seemed a bit uneven, but this is a picky thing. Since all of these events happened over the course of one, very long day, it's most likely just me. One thing that WAS even throughout though, was the gore. There is no shortage of monster GOD carnage, human on human carnage and sometimes both all at once. Good times!
I thought this prequel was a great way to revisit the Gods in this ultra violent world that Luke Walker has created. If this all sounds like your cup of tea, (or cup of bloody gore?), this is the book for you!
