I took this to read on holiday and was happy to get back into it each day. I enjoyed it a lot.

I think the core concept of the worlds and characters is very intriguing, I would really like to learn more about the background history and I really hope there are more books to come.

The pacing is excellent, after a few chapters where I found myself learning quickly about the various people, themes and creatures involved with the story it was then easy to keep track and enjoy the narrative.

I would recommend that fans of fantasy give this a go. I'll be keeping my eyes open for the sequel.

I am a huge fantasy fan, however I am also very picky about my epic fantasy; I find a lot of it needlessly long-winded, overly descriptive, two dimensional characters, cliched heroes, irritating in its insistence on filling out the space between actual events with drawn out journeys that do nothing but slow the pace.... you get the idea.

This book, IS NOTHING LIKE THAT.

This book, is FABULOUS.

While we are plunged from the start into a fairly standard fantasy setup with gods and humans, demons and various other creatures wandering about, it is soon very apparent that there is nothing run of the mill about this particular plot. For starters, Chaeli is a heroine who is both believable in her motives and human in her actions. She is fallible, yet still follow-able. I am unsure if I found this to be the case because I am a woman and found her to be - as a female character - very relateable, or whether she is just a very relatable character. It's possible that male readers might find her to be less likable, but I don't believe that to be the case - there are numerous fantasy stories in which the protagonists is a male, and I find myself fully capable of investing in them and willing following through through to the end of the narrative. In Chaeli's case however it wasn't only her character who was so likeable, for she is backed up by several colourful secondary characters (my favourite being Sheiva).

Pacing is good throughout the novel. The opening sequence immediately plunges us into the action and, really, it doesn't let up much from that point until the climax.

As always I've used the review set up that I've adopted. This is me giving my thoughts and opinions on the Pace, World/Environment, Themes, Characters and Originality of a story. I've decided to change this set up a little and put the Characters section first as it feels better that way.

Intro:

In Search of Gods and Heroes is a story that I'm honoured to finally review. A few years ago I stumbled across the writer's forum called Authonomy. There I became friends with Sammy HK Smith and we shared our stories. This was when I first had the chance to read this story and enjoyed it from the start. I am so glad to see In search of Gods and Heroes finally published and have the opportunity to share my thoughts on it.
Below is my review and please feel free to take a look at the description of this story, and if it appeals to you buy it- How else will you enjoy the creativity, the epic scale and scope, and the vast number of unique characters that In Search of Gods and Heroes has to offer? Okay, enough jibber jabber- on with the review!!!

Characters:

I.S.O.G.A.H. follows Chaeli as her life is thrown into chaos. Chaeli lives in a medieval style world where a number of Gods, aka Immortal deity's, are worshiped (not unlike the Ancient Greek Gods).The catalyst for her journey is the appearance of a demon who attacks Chaeli. She manages to flee but this revelation that the forces of the underworld are after her turns her world upside down. As things unfold we quickly see that the forces of good are trying to help her, but because of their rules of minimal intervention they struggle to do so. Chaeli then begins an epic journey that balances between good and evil as she tries to discover her role in the events that are happening around her.

A brilliant first book in the series, and definitely worth a read.

I admit it took me a little while to get into this book, hence the four stars; Chaeli didn't immediately grab me as a character and I struggled to get started. However, by the time Sheiva got on the scene I was hooked (I love that cat!) and Anya's story really grabbed me. The writing is engaging and the world is fabulous; the political intrigues between the various different factions are well-played; the darker characters are particularly interesting (Metlina is probably my favourite so far) and the different places are brought to life quickly and easily. I am eagerly awaiting the next book to find out what happens!

Fantasy fans: you need to read this book. It's as vivid and as glorious George.R.R Martin and Tolkien. Ibea is a rich and vibrant world, grabbing the reader by the face and refusing to let go. The reader ia taken on a dark and twisted journey, kept breathless until the last word has been devoured. Together with Chaeli we are plunged into the middle of a divine war alongside the mortal struggle for control for Ibea. We feel every heartbeat and every struggle of this world as if it were our own.

Smith has done the near impossible: she has balanced a huge, epic storyline with intense and believable characters, whom you are invested in from the moment you meet them. Political intrigue, scheming gods and a journey of self-discovery, everything a good fantasy novel needs.
