Book Review: Harsh Gods by Michelle Belanger

Harsh Gods
By Michelle Belanger
Genre: Urban Fantasy, Dark Fantasy, Paranormal
Publisher: Titan Books
Book Description:
The last thing Zack Westland expects on a frigid night is to be summoned to an exorcism.

Demonic possession, however, proves the least of his problems. Father Frank, a veteran turned priest, knows Zack’s deepest secrets, recognizing him as Anakim—an angel of the hidden tribe. And Halley, the girl they’ve come to save, carries a secret that could unlock a centuries-old evil. She chants an eerie rhyme, and she isn’t alone…


As Zack's secrets spill out, far more than his life is at stake, for Halley is linked to an ancient conspiracy. Yet Zack can't help her unless he's willing to risk losing his immortality—and reigniting the Blood Wars.

Praise for Conspiracy of Angels:

“Horrors that will send a chill up your spine.” —The Absolute

“A singular reading experience.” —Laurell K. Hamilton, bestselling creator of Anita Blake, vampire hunter

Book Review:

Harsh Gods is awesome! I mean I was really intrigued by the first page.I thought it was pretty great that the reader's first interaction with this immortal angel, Zack was him playing video games. I love fantasy, especially urban fantasy, so Harsh Gods is just what I needed. Sometimes I think that books involving angels are a cheese-fest, but this one was not. It was full of action, and every page left me craving more.

I was surprised when I realized that Harsh Gods is actually a second book. It does not feel like a "second book." If you read Harsh Gods, like I did, then you will not miss a beat of the action or feel left hanging. I really loved the writing of Harsh Gods. The book came across smooth and I was never bored.

Nowadays, fantasy is a hard genre to create a piece of work that is one of a kind. Ms. Belanger did an amazing job of making a non-cliche urban fantasy book. I would recommend this book to any fantasy or paranormal lover. I give Harsh Gods five stars!
