Review: HUNGRY GODS by J. D. Brink
I need to make a little icon for "WOW!!) to add to my reviews. HUNGRY GODS certainly qualifies. I read it in about two hours, in the middle of the night, very uncommon for me. I enjoyed it so much. 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. Some sentences I stopped to reread a couple times (example: Gargoyle' s expression of not-quite-apology to Spitball (Luke) after nearly removing him from the land of the living. The description was priceless. HUNGRY GODS is NOT just your ordinary "SPLASH!! BAM!! ##*** POW!!" Comic event. It's really, really good [and a rereader].Ff
Description: Superheroes. Undead. 'Nuff said.
The country's premier superhero team is missing. So when a mutant monstrosity goes on the rampage, it's Spitball to the rescue! He's a third-string hero today, determined to be first-string tomorrow. And the Army may be giving him just the chance he needs. Spitball's been invited to undertake a secret mission into America's heartland. What he's about to discover, however, is not a chance at stardom but a horror movie come to life...
Hungry Gods is a fast-paced adventure of costumed superheroes, government conspiracy theories, and flesh-eating zombies. Spandex adventure for adults.
