Against all odds, - A God has returned - to Earth.
Chance Kyrien is turning seventeen, and on this day he will be confirmed as a Puriman and learn the shape of his life to come. Young Chance is ambitious, rebellious, but also fiercely devout, and his only thoughts are about farming and wine-making - and marrying the girl he loves.

Now he must survive against hellish forces to face his ultimate foe: a long-forgotten god whose destiny is intertwined with his own.

A full throated defence of blind faith

Any additional comments?

but seriously this is so one dimensional its stupid. It starts off somewhat promising but it becomes pretty clear that what the author was trying to do here was promote a very specific view of the world. Brandon Sanderson said it best in The Way of Kings: "the role of a storyteller is not to tell you what to think, but to give you questions to think about." This is not that. It is very clearly telling you what to think, and bluntly. World building is very formulaic and in a way that feels like the author was just doing a scifi checkbox thing. A huge disappointment.

Supposedly nice premise obscured by whining hero

Apparently there is some philosophy here? I don't know, I really couldn't make it through the endless contrived encounters between whining cardboard characters. The background and world is really lavishly constructed, and I kept wanting to continue, but in the end, the plot developments are so clumsy and contrived, and the characters so flat that I just couldn't sit through their whining to get to the heart of it. I did my best, but ditched it after I fell asleep in the middle of a giant battle scene between some talking animals and a dead guy and an immortal statue with a hammer and such.
