Gods of Anthem by Logan Keys

Until nearly the end of the book, you go back and forth between two stories, told side by side from the point of view of two people, leading totally separate lives. You know they are going to link up, but you don't know how.

There's mystery, suspense, action and romance. Real characters with depth and emotions. Some amazing world-building and a unique plot.

There are some 'slow' moments, but that just gives you chance to breath.
All in all, it's a well-paced page turner.

The ending leaves a lot of questions unanswered, which sets you up for the next book.

I can't wait for the sequel!



Synopsis:

Oceans apart, a young musician and a “special” soldier embark on a perilous journey for home fueled by the unyielding pursuit of freedom from the Authority.

Sixteen-year-old prodigy, Liza Randusky, waits imprisoned, blamed for the undead plague that’s slowly destroying the planet. Banished to an island where she’ll never play her beloved piano again, Liza’s steadfast sense of justice and passion for music may have the power to change her destiny. But will it be enough...

To strike back at the new world order, the troubled son of a preacher, Thomas Ripley-Hatter, suffers unspeakable alterations by the Underground to join a secret Army. Tommy knows that all hope lies in human-weapons like himself, and that somehow he must cling to his sanity…while letting loose the monster to win.

The battle begins for the last-standing sliver of humanity: Anthem.




The Author:

Logan began writing horror and poetry early in life but she says young-adult dystopian is the next best thing.

She's currently living on the Island of Oahu in Hawaii with her husband, daughter, and fur-child Lola. Even though it's a tropical setting, her writing remains the same moody narrative she's always enjoyed.
