Great book! It's like a post-apocalyptic cyberpunk novel but with all the technology replaced by gods and magic. Instead of jacking into the matrix, the heroes (and there are several of them) tap into spells. And were cyberpunk usually has some ominous, mysterious artificial intelligence pulling strings behind the scenes, the Brenner books have gods using the mortals as pawns.
Well written. Funny. Intriguing. Surprisingly original for such an overdone genre.
I don't know why Brenner's books haven't gotten more attention, but I'm glad they're available on Manybooks.
The story continues! Spell of Intrigue is the second book in the Brenner's "Dance of the Gods" series. This novel ties up some loose ends left from the first novel (Spell of Catastrophe -- also available for download at manybooks.net). It also create lots of new unraveled ends, which we can assume will be taken care of in the next novel, Spell of Fate.
The characters are much better developed in this one. As the title implies, the intrigue runs quite deep. Brenner is great at giving you just enough information to keep you interested, but never giving it all away (even when you've read the last page.)
I highly recommend this series, so far. These books are as original as they are unconventional for the genre.
See it as donating a moment of your social media time, every little thing helps us improve and stay online.
