Gods of Anthem by Logan Keys


Where does one start with this review, honestly? Logan Keys gave us a YA dystopian/post-apocalyptic novel that was unlike anything I've ever read. Literally within seconds of finishing, I had to e-mail Logan and said "Holy hell in a hand basket. that was AMAZING!" If I could rate it 6 stars, I would. It left me with a deep book hangover, completely unable to read for a few days afterward.

Logan has expertly woven numerous elements into one grisly, heart-wrenching story. Romance, mythical beings, an island for the sick and a shady government provided us a plot with so many twists and turns there was no way to guess what would be coming next.

This story is given to us from two points of view, one is Liza, and the other is Tommy. Liza was a patient on the island for the sick and dying. Tommy is being used as a secret weapon for the government. There are so many secondary characters that we come across, some making their mark on my soul, while others, I'm still questioning. But Tommy and Liza, working on opposite sides merge together in a unique way in the last few chapters, that left me begging for more, needing the next book NOW.
