Aching God was a tricky one for me. Whilst I thoroughly enjoyed the beginning and the last 25% of the book, I was slightly disappointed by what happens in between. The majority of reviews I have read mention the similarities to Dungeons and Dragons. I've never played Dungeon and Dragons which might be one of the reasons I didn't enjoy it as much as most people. So here's my thoughts on Mike Shel's Aching God.
