“I Am a Small God’ tells the tale of the minor Greek god Ecrelis. He is mercilessly hunted down by a new war god from the east, and told that he not be permitted to exist unless he works to bring down the old gods. Having little choice, Ecrelis sets about betraying the Egyptian gods, the Celtic gods, the ancients of Venice, the Norse gods, the Aztecs and, finally, the Inca. He does all that is required of him, but his allotted time of a thousand years has now run out and he must confront the terrifying war god once more.”
*This book was sent to me for review by the author. All opinions stated are my own.*
This book was an interesting one to read.
I honestly didn’t know what to expect going into this book. But I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it.
I liked all of the characters featured in this book. Ecrelis was an interesting main character. Seeing him escaped the capture of this war god while betraying the other gods was very brave of him. I think reading from the perspectives of all of the gods was also interesting. We got to see gods from different cultures. I think that was the books’ strongest suit.
The plot was were I think the plot fell a little short. It started off strong but as the book went along, I felt myself becoming less and less interesting with what was going on. I found it a little info-dumpy in my personal opinion. But I think that it just had to do with the size of the book. It was a lot of information to pack into a short book so I can give the author credit for that. Like I said previously, and I think the strongest part of the book was it’s characters but the plot fell a little short compared to that.
Overall, I think that this was a very interesting book. It incorporated, like I said previously, gods from different cultures which I think was what kept me intrigued within the story. I think it is definitely worth the read if it seems interesting to you.
