This is the debut novel for author Jared Angel. The God of Light and Dark have been fighting since the dawn of existence, and threaten the end for mankind. The Mother of Creation, Crevahn, has devised a dangerous plan to reunite the two battling Gods back into one allowing peace to reign….but she cannot do this alone.
She gets the help from one of her children, Vyas (who also has darkness within him), and a badly abused human wife named Malla (my favourite character). Will Vyas be able to suppress his demons and rage against the God of Dark? Can Malla rise to the challenge to rage against the God of Light? Beliefs are shaken, the humans tested, and they soon learn the true intentions of the Gods. Is this the end or will this unlikely trio save the world? You’ll have to read Betraying the God of Light to find out!!!
The prologue starts out with a creation story, how the Gods and the world (Shiva) came into existence.
I WANT to have you all read this creation story, its only 2.5 pages. After reading only this far in, I KNEW I would love this story and it was within my genre of reading. I’ve always had a weakness for early settlers, Greek Mythology and Elizabethan era novels.
Please click on the pictures to make them larger. I had originally tried to type out the creation explanation, but I thought it would end up being much longer than the types pages! If you click again, it will zoom once more.
It can be a little confusing at first, because there is a whole new “language” of terms to learn such as jiva (children of the Gods), sleep and wake cycles (day and night), but within a chapter I didn’t find it difficult to keep track of anymore. It takes place on an earth type planet and is written in third person, omniscient.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone, especially to high school readers and beyond (or younger avid readers). I really enjoyed the story and an looking forward to reading more in the future from this author. I have REALLY enjoyed this book and hope that Jared writes many more novels in the future.
