Godkiller (Fallen Gods, #1), by Hannah Kaner

Godkiller by Hannah Kaner

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

Oh, wow. This was… bad, really bad. I expected this to be fantasy while in fact this is a young-adult novel that feels like it was written by a teenager.

Kissen (I’m sorry but as a German, I’m having a hard time with this name…), our queer, one-legged hero, goes on an adventure with a former knight, childhood friend of the king, a spoilt brat, Inara, from a noble house – a house that was literally burned down, including Inara’s beloved servants, and mother. Inara also has a pest problem, manifesting as a god (of white lies).

Among that lies naive romance, attempted-coming-of-age, fantasy-lite and a looooong journey that drags and drags and… You get the gist.

The writing is also mediocre at best and, even worse, errors abound: »Kissen wasn’t going to let him stupid that easily.«

Thankfully, that was the most aggravating mistake but, still, a disgrace.

I’m abandoning this at 70% to later slumber on my Kissen.

One star out of five.
