Poet At Large Reviews, Book, The Gods Of Garran   Leave a comment

‘The Gods of Garran’ by Meredith Skye tells a wonderful and imaginative tale that had me deeply enthralled.  The people of Garran once prospered under the direction of their Gods the Borrai. Then the Chanden came from the sky and killed the Borrai, claiming Garran and it’s riches for themselves while turning the inhabitants into their slaves.  Now there is a war brewing as the Garrans plan to revolt in answer to the brutal beating of a small boy. Tribe plots against tribe, forcing one young man to make hard choices to save what family he has left. His only hope is a Chanden Agent, who will end up giving her life over to a cause that she never even dreamed of for a world she wants desperately to leave behind.

There is an old Latin phrase, ‘Inter arma enim silent leges.’ it means ‘In times of war the law is silent.’ Meredith Skye does a wonderful job of creating characters and conflict that one can relate to and in illustrating the truth that in war there are villains and heroes on both sides.  The fact that both sides are guilty of terrible things leaves one with pause to think.  Because of the violence I would only recommend this book for mature readers, but I would definately recommend this book.

I would like to apologize for taking so long to post this review as my recovery from my fall took so long and was delayed by other medical issues.  I promise that I will get up my review for ‘Rock Band Fights Evil 1’  by D.J. Butler just as soon as I can finish reading it.
