Fallen Gods
Adam Slater always felt something was off about his life; that he was not supposed to be a bullied, wimpy little kid. In 1984, eight year old Adam and his friends discover an abandoned car near a large creepy work shed. Kids being kids, they decide to search, only to find the car belongs to a missing MI5 agent named Hendley. In the car, Adam finds an old leather-bound book written in a language, the likes of which he had never seen before; whilst Adam’s friend Ian enters the shed, only to suddenly vanish, never to be seen again. All of this kicks off events which will change Adam's life forever. On his eighteenth birthday, everything changes in an instant. Suddenly, he is strong, powerful, and can do things which should have been impossible. Determined to understand who, or what he is, Adam begins to investigate, discovering an alien race of women, trapped on Earth for millennia, known as Witches, who shaped modern-day religion. He also discovers that the MI5 agent’s wife, Carol, is not who she appears. Embarking on a journey of self-discovery, surrounded by his best friends, Adam travels across Europe, visiting historical sites and investigating Greek mythology, to find out why he has powers. Joining them are four beautiful girls; girls the boys never dreamed of talking to before. But these are no ordinary girls; rather they are witches who may not have Adam’s best interests at heart. Adam soon discovers that not all is as it seems, and their journey will not be a fun-filled relaxing adventure, but rather a trail of death and destruction, leading to the revelation that the world is in grave danger and Adam may be the only person capable of saving humanity. Standing in the way will be the witches and the threat of a bounty hunter goddess named Venus. What begins as an epic adventure amongst friends, descends into a battle of epic proportions, and a race against time to stop an evil goddess from restoring her powers and destroying the Earth once and for all. Adam has to grow from weak wimpy kid, to confident, strong adult; and fast. In order to do that, he needs to discover who he is and why, and he may not like the answer. The truth could ruin him. Getting the answer may kill him, and everyone he holds close. One thing is for certain, the world will never be the same again.

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.
