pendant hanging around his neck. But it was just so shiny and why did they have it anyway? The pendant had the same symbol on it as the Bator Patrol Guard used as their emblem. How was this possible, and what did it mean? Can the Patrol Guard unlock the mystery of the pendant before a war destroys them all?
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
THE GODS OF GREYFALL COLLECTION is an anthology of three interconnected novellas and is the first book I’ve read from author A.J. Norris.
In this altered universe kind of story, we find demons who feed on human blood and genetically engineered men and women who protect the human realm. It’s loosely based on Egyptian history and each of the three novellas is centered around a different couple.
In part one, we’re introduced to two guardians: Dru and Kalani. This one’s a second chance romance and pretty much lays the foundation for the rest of the book. They’re super hot together, no matter how hard they try to deny it!
Part two is about Riory (Dru’s best friend) and Nadine. They have more of an insta-love connection, certainly insta-lust! We find out a bit more about the demon world.
Part three, I think is the shortest and is the story of Jade (Kalani’s best friend) and Cutler who’s the boss of Riory and Dru. Here, the Egyptian influence is more prevalent which is why I think it’s my favorite part!
Overall, this was 3.5 stars for me (rounded up to 4 because I adore the cover)! I loved the concept of the story, the hints of Egyptian mythology Ms. Norris weaved in were great. And I liked the characters, each couple was awesome together and worked to bring life to the book. But because the collection is so short, I felt that a lot of details were rushed or overlooked. I would’ve enjoyed a more complete and intricate storyline! Told from various POVs with a happy (for now?) ending. I received, read and voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.
of writing all worth it. However, writing and reading weren’t always in her foremost thoughts. In fact, her love affair with writing came as a shock to everyone she knows, including herself. At a young age, she rarely opened a book, unless forced to read something for school. But that’s all behind her now. She wrote her first book several years ago, which turned out to be a surprisingly cathartic process, and she hasn’t been able to stop writing since.
