What do critics and readers say?
"Not only is it very smoothly written, but the author has a cherishable sense of humour. His balancing of character impact against non-stop action is just glorious... Hungry Gods is NOT just your ordinary 'SPLASH!! BAM!! ##*** POW!!' comic event. It's really, really good (and a rereader)." -- Mallory Heart Reviews
"[A] fanciful mashup of Walking Dead, KickAss, Watchmen, and maybe even a little Indiana Jones... a solid page turner that had me excited to see what would unfold in the next chapter." -- Lieutenant Z
"If you like Superhero stories cast with very real characters, this is the book for you. Our hero 'Spitball' may not start out as the greatest of heroes, but this, his first serious mission, puts him in situations where he forced to grow or die." -- Frae
"If you like a little humor mixed with your adventure and horror...this one's for you." -- papab1
