God of Nothing by Shane Scott is a captivating epic fantasy with a timeless setting, featuring a world inhabited by all kinds of creatures. Aja Ashe Jensen is a descendant of a god and a devil. Murdered at seventeen by the God of Death, Silver, she eventually resurrects with her dragon. As she navigates a treacherous world where nothing is what it seems, she must unravel her identity and choose which side to take in her dual nature of good and evil. While struggling to stay safe from the grip of the God of Death, she must choose which path to follow: will she save the ALL or annihilate everything in her path? The first of all things born and not created, she has more power than she can ever imagine, and the war is more within her than in the world she is awakened into.
God of Nothing introduces the epic fantasy series, The All, and readers who enjoy tales with supernatural, phenomenal characters and a strong conflict will adore this story. Aja Ashe looks all too normal when readers meet her, but she knows something is wrong with her. The signs are telling. Matthew, her father, doesn’t help whenever she asks about her mother, only saying that he loves her. There are intriguing moments as the young Aja struggles to figure out who she really is. Learning that her mother died in childbirth but that it was something else that caused her death doesn’t make anything easier for her, plus there is the disturbing experience with the strange snake and the lightning.
The story moves on quickly to introduce powerful characters. It is a world in which gods hide disguised as humans. Even Memnoth, God of Love, hides as a mortal. The plot is cunningly written and the conflict is strong. The multidimensional nature of the characters pulled me in and kept me racing through the pages. The storytelling craft is stellar, the prose impeccable, and the conversations as real as any can be. This is a rollicking ride for fans of epic fantasy. The intersection between the physical and the supernatural elements is superbly woven into this entrancing story. A page-turning story that will be loved by fans of epic fantasy tales.
