This review contains spoilers for the previous book in this series.

Mortals and Deities is the second book in the Genesis of Oblivion Saga by Maxwell Alexander Drake, and is the sequel to Farmers and Mercenaries, which was reviewed here. The sequel starts off right where Farmers and Mercenaries left us.

A multitude of viewpoints
Alant Cor finds himself near his old home with no clue of how he got there. His eyes glow red, and he doesn’t know what being thrust

In this self-published author’s second book of a trilogy, the characters and events of the first book (Farmers & Merchants) move forward in unexpected and interesting ways. The main characters, which in a typical fantasy novel would join together to form a fellowship (all bow to Tolkien), instead remain separated for about the first half of the book. The lion-man, who has a complex backstory involving separation from the rest of his people and slavery, in this book gets his own story arc in ...more

I won this book through a Firstreads giveaway at Goodreads.

I read a lot of fantasy and Mr. Drake definitely has talent. He creates an interesting, deep world with a great magic system. I especially liked the characters of Elith and Arderi and I am looking forward to reading more of their adventures.

A couple of things hold this book back from being a standout in the genre. The book falls prey to several things that particularly annoy me about fantasy literature. I dislike when authors feel the

An absolutely amazing read. It picks up right where Farmers and Mercenaries left off. With the characters introduced in the first book, the second jumps right into the action. The characters remain vibrant and contiue to grow. There are a number of action scenes that draw you in, wanting more. A new character is added, and two from the first book now get chapters denoted to them.

So Drake brought much more in this one. The story broadens, and several big secrets are revealed, while even bigger are introduced. Once the quest group gathered, the action spins you away. The ending is a must read.
