Fallen Gods is a work of fiction in the fantasy genre. It is aimed at older readers due to language and violence and was penned by author Gary Szendzielarz. After a mysterious encounter with the car of a missing MI5 agent, Adam Slater grows up to suddenly develop extraordinary powers. As Adam and his friends travel through Europe, investigating myths and folklore to try to understand his otherworldly abilities, they find that a group of alien visitors known as witches are on their tail too. Is the truth about Adam’s nature worth risking their lives, and will his powers be enough to keep the world safe?
Fallen Gods is a highly engaging novel that follows protagonist Adam Slater as his life becomes intertwined with that of an alien race. One of the most enjoyable things about this novel is the author's ability to craft a cast of diverse and interesting characters, all with their own intricacies and quirks. With such a large cast of characters to follow, the author’s ability to make each one unique and interesting is no small feat. The plot itself is action-packed with a pace that never slows, and every time you feel you know what’s going on, another twist comes along and makes you reassess everything you thought you knew to be true. Author Gary Szendzielarz delivers an epic story with an engaging fantasy world as a background. I would not hesitate to recommend this novel to anyone who enjoys fantasy novels, and strong character-driven stories.
