One (Book One in the Godslayer Cycle)
By Ron Glick
Nathaniel Goodwin has effectively raised himself since the age of nine with a little help from a mysterious dwarf named Bracken. Nate’s mother was stoned to death by would be followers of a person claiming to represent a new god.
He doesn’t realize that he is a critical component of a plan created by the old gods to give mankind the freedom of choice. The old gods created swords that can slay a god and set in motion events to breed the right genes into certain humans to make them avatars. The plan has been hundreds of years in the making and now Nathaniel is the focus.
Grown up, married and a father, Nathaniel must wrestle with the choices that will shatter his existence once again. The story and writing style remind me of some ‘Big 5’ authors I have read like Brandon Sanderson. I liked it and I give four out of five satisfaction units.
