I have finally finished reading my proof (gloat) copy of Michelle Paver’s Gods and Warriors. It didn’t take ages because I wasn’t enjoying it, in fact the opposite is true. I read the first half very quickly and then made myself slow down, because I didn’t want it to end. Yes, it’s that good.
Without giving too much away, this book is certainly on par with Paver’s previous works of art. The pace is so intense, it leaves the reader breathless and the protagonists so believable that you root for them all the way. I only hope that the follow up to this powerful story isn’t too long in the offing.
Due for publication in August, Gods and Warriors is sure to delight the reader. You may find it in the children’s section, but believe me an adult will get just as much from Paver’s magical prose. Paver fans and those not yet converted, you are in for a treat!
