Published by Surf Star Media, The Final Book: Gods is S.W. Hammond’s first foray into an enticing world of gods and mortals. Spanning four millennia of mortal interaction with the divine, the story follows a path that will be both familiar to Assassin’s Creed fans and at the same time something all its own. For centuries members of the Greek pantheon have found themselves stranded on Earth after a childish argument between sisters causes an upheaval among the Gods. As a result of one brash actio ...more

Recommends it for: anyone thinking something just doesn't seem right in society.
I may be a bit biased, but this book will always hold a special place. It took over 6 years to write and a lot of sacrifice. It's not perfect, but I'm certainly proud of it.

I hope William, Pom, Ana, Josh, and Cloe haunt you as much as they've haunted me!

The mingling of Titans, Gods, and mortals; threads time, souls, faiths, myths and legends.

From ancient Mesopotamia through present; rebirth and ascension through Sumerian, Greek, and Egyptian deities; galactic warfare and rebellion; genesis and anima; the Gods engage and intervene in the future of mortals and themselves.

Written in the form of three interspersed books with artifacts of history and love letters; SW Hammond’s debut novel is an epic story with exquisite prose and the depth and scop

Well written, interesting characters and perspective on the Greek Pantheon and religion in general. Not my favorite but I appreciate the thoughts that were explored.

This was a Goodreads giveaway book, so first off thank you! I really enjoyed this book. The characters were well adapted, the storyline was well layered and intriguing, and overall I just found the whole idea behind this book really interesting. The only thing I wasn't the biggest fan of were the in-between-chapter little segments, where it was like an office memo or typed up court proceeding. They actually jarred me from the storyline and I found them to be distracting. Other than that though, ...more

The Final Book: Gods was a great story about gods, humans, romance and the fall of humanity. However, the religious connotations and history mean you need to have a decent grasp of religion especially that of the Greek gods so it did lead to a little Googling on my part. But for the most part it was a good story.

Recommends it for: Hollywood! Needs to be a movie
I continue to think about this story, the characters really stick with you. I want more! I loved the letters between Cloe and Josh, they made me cry!

Transmigration was my favorite chapter--completely nails what's wrong with our society. The timeline shift back to ancient Mesopotamia was original as well. Never read anything like it! Highly recommend.

The Final Book: God is the debut novel by Goodreads author SW Hammond. I was given a copy in exchange for an honest review. I can start out by saying that the synopsis of this book caught me immediately; it is well written and immediately compelling. I enjoy stories with a basis or core laid in mythology, and the Greek myths have always been my favorite, so I had high hopes for this story.
This book does not disappoint!! Like the synopsis the entire story is well written, well detailed and constr

I'm not going to give a rating for this book because I don't think it would be fair (or accurate). This was a case where the book just did not work for me and I wasn't able to finish the novel. The story started off interestingly enough but I couldn't get into it and I felt like there was a lot going on for me. I think that the author actually did a really good job of taking the Greek mythological character and maintaining their personalities, even including little details. I think the reason th ...more
