it was amazing
bookshelves: fantasy, audible
Read from May 25 to June 01, 2011

If there’s a limbo between sci-fi and fantasy, it is where Captain Ean Tephe pilots his spaceship the Righteous which is powered solely by imprisoned god (with lowercase G) and chanting acolytes of the Bishopry Militant.

The God Engines got me hooked from first sentence… “It was time to whip the god”. John Scalzi really knows how to start off the story with a bang. The tone of this book is very dark and at times all out NC-17 horror movie scary. Just before the ending all hell literally breaks lose with one of the creepiest goriest oh-my-god-I-can’t-believe-this-is-happening-est scenes I’ve ever read!
