Paternus Trilogy by Dyrk Ashton - Book Review 13, Jul

I belong to a few genre readers and writers groups on Facebook and for the past few years have heard so much hype over Dyrk Ashton’s Paternus Trilogy. The recommendations have been so positive and frequent that I was compelled to support Ashton’s Kickstarter campaigns for each novel in the series without having read any of them. That all changed recently when I noticed a one-credit deal on Audible for the entire trilogy, unable to resist. Well, having just finished the final installment – War of Gods – let me tell you: like the gods of myth and legend, the hype is real. 

Paternus: War of Gods by Dyrk Ashton (Paternus Trilogy #3) 01, Jul

An awe-inspiring finale that redefines epic. 'Cry havoc, and let slip the gods of war!'

Have you ever read a book and been lost for words? Has a book ever made you stop mid-page and whisper, 'holy 'f***', then reread the section a second time, maybe even a third, so as to fully comprehend what you have just read? Has a book ever made you do that numerous times? No? Then, allow me to introduce to you Dyrk Ashton's War of Gods, the awe-inspiring finale to the epic, urban fantasy Paternus Trilogy

Paternus: Wrath of Gods by Dyrk Ashton (Paternus Trilogy #2) 22, Jun

A fantastic sequel with more character, action and amalgamation of myth. 

Wrath of Gods picks up right where Rise of Gods left off, with Fiona and Zeke accompanying Peter on his quest to gather the remaining Deva in preparation for the coming war with the Asura. Whereas the first book starts off slow, the second throws you right into the thick of things from the get go and does not relent for the remainder of its pages, with thrilling set pieces, a memorable cast of characters and a clever amalgamation of our world's many mythologies.
