For every fan of American gods

If you are a fan of American gods this is a must read. Shadow was big on the writings of Herodotus. Read this and find out why. Great read and a great companion to the Neil Gaimen story. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
