The Love of Gods (book 1)

Literary Titan Silver Book Award Winner, June 2019

The truth can be hidden. It can be denied and never spoken of again. But just as belief has never needed truth in order to inspire, truth has never required belief in order to exist. It is this very chasm that protects an ancient race of cosmic beings we once called gods.

Back Cover Blurb:
Lugos had given his word when the world was still young, before he’d endured the wrenching pain of her soul being torn from his. Lifetime after lifetime she’d returned when he’d needed her most, when the apathy of his kind had eaten away at his resolve and his heartfelt vow seemed pointless. One would think he’d be able to protect a single mortal, after all, he was a god. But two long centuries had passed since he’d held her, since he’d been whole. Now, she was back and Lugos had a decision to make; claim the only woman he’d ever loved, or deny his soul’s deepest craving and grant Keely a chance at a peaceful life without the dangers that populated his world.

For five years, Lugos had chosen the latter with the hope that the fates might overlook them this time. That was still his plan when the goddess Rhiannon called seeking his help.

Lugos should have known better.

Review: Literary Titan

The story is an intriguing combination of a murder mystery and love story.

The Love of Gods is a well-written story. The dialogue is engrossing and most of the characters and their loyalties are intricate but explained in depth. Both the love story and the mystery will keep you guessing until the end.

For the Love of This Book! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

May 5, 2019 Format: Kindle Edition

The cast of characters—gods witches, et. al—really work in this novel. Smith does an amazing job of explaining to the reader the character’s backstory. Mythology can be so confusing, but in this series it isn’t. Trying to tell a story with a murder mystery coupled with a love story and mythology seems impossible, but Tarrant Smith does it with elegance and grace!
