The Woken Gods

The Woken Gods - Gwenda Bond If there is one thing I am a sucker for its mythology. Greek, Norse, Egyptian, Celtic. I’m just a mythology nut so when a book comes along that involves mythology in a modern setting and has a ton of world building I’m pretty happy. This is that kind of book.

This book is set in a world where the gods of all the pantheons have been woken and exist in modern times. In such a world there are obviously big changes which the author does describe. Changes such as the lack of cars in some areas because of the deities are an interesting and thoughtful touch too.

For the plot, the main character Kyra is not having the easiest time. Her father stole something from society he works with. This society patrols and tries to control the gods as best they can with relics. It’s ongoing battle and Kyra has no idea why her father would do this. So with her friends and a couple of younger society members, Kyra start in on a search for answers. But the answers are not pleasant.
