God help me, but I found the blurb interesting. Now to just find the funds to actually pay for the book...

The Undying God is a break from the paranormal romance that is taking over literature. I was glad to see that Nathan Wilson actually writes about issues that are relevant to what's going on today: reckless ideology, sexual morality, and individuals who believe the ends justify the means. I almost found myself rooting for the villain to my surprise. The atmosphere was very intense, which really pulled me in. Maybe there's a sequel in the making...?

*A copy of this book was given to me by the author in exchange for an honest review*

I really liked the characters and the plot of this book, It was very intriguing and made me think about societies ideals. The villain, Margzor, believes that keeping ones virginity is an awful thing and that it’s something to be done when you love someone and someone loves you. His life has been pretty much the worst and he yearns t

**I won this book in a Goodreads Giveaway**

What a terrific story! The words are flowery, it's not overly descriptive, and the world building flows naturally throughout the story. I love that this author chose to write from a woman's perspective and actually pulled it off, not many men can write women accurately. I loved all the characters, even the villain, and the love story grew organically and never felt rushed.

The POV switching was a little confusing at times, it seemed to come

Wow! ok what did I just read!

There is so much to this book that I will review it in sections. I will start with the theme of Ideology. I had no clue what it was before reading this book. I didnt think I had ever read a book with ideology in it before. Marzgor, the villian of this story, has faced much horror in his life. It was very easy to feel sorry for him. This led to a demon using his body and mind to gain a higher power, to become a demigod of virginity. It soon came clear to m

Nathan's novel was so descriptive and beautifully written! I was in a constant state of fear as the evil creature lurked in the background. To me, that makes it a great book because I wanted to keep reading and looked forward to picking it back up again--even though it scared me! lol

I hope that Nathan keeps writing--I see that he has a new novel out--it will be on my Nook as soon as possible! Good luck with your writing career, Nathan!

This is an ambitious first novel with some big ideas and promising world- and character-building. But when he wrote it, I don't think Wilson had yet met a flowery adjective he didn't like. There was also a big problem with shifting POV. Unfortunately, I couldn't get past the purple prose and the head-hopping enough to continue reading to the end.

This was a kind of dark book. The language and descriptions a bit overdone in my opinion. A lot of world building and science fiction which isn't my favorite. The main characters were likable and I wanted a good resolution for them. Overall it was ok but not something I would feel compelled to read more of in the future.

Some decent ideas in this, but clunky prose and some sudden plot jumps that were either out of left field or completely telegraphed ultimately take it down a few pegs.
