Godfall #2

Widows of the Sun-Moon

Rate this book
Naos is bored. Alone in space, life should be idyllic. No more random thoughts intruding on her brain; no bodies clogging her senses. But what is there to do besides stare at the planet below and wonder what it would feel like to be Calamity’s only god?

War between the other gods shouldn’t be too hard to start. The Storm Lord has a bad temper, and after being abandoned by Simon Lazlo, source of immortality, he’s easy to provoke. And the Sun-Moon live closely with Calamity’s plains-dwelling people and their new neighbors, a pack of humans and aliens led by the intriguing ex-soldier Cordelia Ross. With a plague ravaging their numbers, it will be easy to set them at each other’s throats.

A little war, a bit of death, and the chance to be Calamity’s only deity? It’s a game to keep even the most fickle goddess entertained.

About the author

Barbara Ann Wright

24 books169 followers
Barbara Ann Wright writes fantasy and science fiction novels and short stories when not adding to her enormous book collection or ranting on her blog. Her short fiction has appeared twice in Crossed Genres Magazine and once made Tangent Online's recommended reading list. Her first novel, The Pyramid Waltz, was one of Tor.com's Reviewer's Choice books of 2012 and was a 2012 Foreword Review Book of the Year Award Finalist as well as a Golden Crown Award finalist. It won the 2013 Rainbow Award for Best Lesbian Fantasy and made BookRiot's 100 Must-Read Sci-Fi Fantasy Novels By Female Authors. She's won five Rainbow Awards total, and Coils was a finalist in the 2017 Lambda Awards.

Her writing career can be boiled down to two points: when her mother bought her a typewriter in the sixth grade and when she took second place in the Isaac Asimov Award for Undergraduate Excellence in Science Fiction and Fantasy Writing in 2004. One gave her the means to write and the other gave her the confidence to keep going. Believing in oneself, in her opinion, is the most important thing a person can do.

Somewhere between 4 and 5 stars.

I didn't enjoy this book quiet as much as book 1, mainly because I felt there was too much going on. Even with being a lover of sci-fi, and reading the books back-to-back, I found it hard to keep up with the craziness that is Naos. Once again, a great storyline, and I was convinced that our unhinged deity was going to rule supreme. A good plot twist at the end, should be interesting to see how things pan out for book 3.

An excellent follow-up to the Paladins of the Storm Lord that has me excited for the next book in the series. Highlights include: excellent epic fights scenes - BAW is a master of fight scenes - and some sexy sweet love scenes including a smoldering M/M scene, an unexpected treat.

This second book in the series was much easier to read because nearly all the characters were familiar, which made the book much more entertaining. There are more adventures, new foes, new alliances and new revelations. This had a satisfying ending that made me wonder what the sequel would be until – until I figuratively turned the page. Then I knew what was coming in the next book. It should be interesting.

I have to reluctantly admit that although I love the world, and I like the writing, the story is just not for me. It’s just too much action, and there isn’t even the tension to make the action very worthwhile for me. It’s not bad, it’s just not my style.
