The G.O.D. series must be read in order
Griffin Storm is hiding out in Underground Atlanta. He’s an albino man that can manipulate glass and crystal, and he uses his special abilities to raid warehouses and old buildings for food and supplies for the abandoned children that live underground. During a raid, he meets Tassta Vinetti, a resident of the Brotherhood fortress. He is taken to the fortress and chaos ensues as Tassta, her twin brother Penn, and her uncle, try to keep their new visitor and his untold powers a secret.
Griffin is the only survivor of the Guild’s deadly experiments, and they hunt for him because his survival will have dynamic consequences on the world. The Guild believes that Griffin will transform into a G.O.D., a genetically enhanced Omni-dimensional being with limitless abilities.
Will Griffin transform into a G.O.D.? Will he save the children of the Underground from their tragic life? Only time will tell…
I like a book that sucks you in quickly and this …
I will start by saying don’t give up once you start this book. I had a bit of difficulty getting involved. I like a book that sucks you in quickly and this one didn’t do that. Ms. Campbell lays out her story slowly, but once the action takes off you will be transported. It’s an action-filled post dystopian adventure, with a bit of romance, jealousy, and friction between the factions.
A refreshing and fascinating book. I liked that Tassta and Griffin had a romance but that it didn’t overwhelm the story. It was in the background and built over time. The book starts off slowly as we learn the different for lack of a better word factions and the main characters. Penn is awesome. He’s so loyal and protective but he also brings a lightness to the story. Lerin is interesting he is the only elderly character but he’s also wise and contemplative. He has compassion and a good leader. Dean is a little wary of. He is kind but you have to wonder as a scientist if he will betray Griffin unconsciously in any way. Sylmar something is wrong with him but he’s hiding it from Griffin so he doesn’t worry. He’s a compassionate leader who deserves a better life. Assay is an enigma really. She shows strength and yet is weak. Stubbornness and yet vulnerable and at times she can be frustrating. She loves Griffin and shows unwavering support to Griffin. Griffin is really this book’s focus. He is the key to everything. He’s kind and compassionate but also if he chooses very very dangerous. He sacrifices to help children and finds joy in doing this and being near them. Griffin is the blood master and this book deals with his acceptance of that and his transformation. It’s the transformation that is startling. He becomes something ethereal and angelic but also deadly. He must learn control of his lusts and abilities in order to stay who he is and also not cause harm.
We are introduced to Tassta, she is a young woman trying to find her place in the new world and make her mark. She wants to be a Guardian of the Brotherhood, the first female member. She has been promised a place once she accomplishes a few more missions. On a mission, she is almost found by the Guild. She is kept safe by a mysterious albino. Much to her surprise, he is able to talk to her telekinetically. Griffin Storm is the mysterious young man, they are both attracted to one another but he quickly disappears once he knows that Tassta is safe. This all changes upon returning to their fortress and finding that her brother has captured him. Thinking perhaps he is the savior of mankind as foreseen in a profess.
Ms. Campell’s characters are well developed, her writing will pull you into her world that is fraught with danger, learning to love, happiness and angst. She has created a world that is both unique and spellbinding. You will fall in love with Griffin and hope he can find all he needs in this new world that may or may not accept him, make him their own and appreciate his gifts as well as what he may do to protect the future.
If you are in the market for an intriguing YA – Dystopian adventure – I highly recommend this one.
