Publisher's Summary

From a new voice in the tradition of Lauren Beukes, Ian McDonald, and Nnedi Okorafor comes The Prey of Gods, a fantastic, boundary-challenging tale set in a South African locale both familiar and yet utterly new, which braids elements of science fiction, fantasy, horror, and dark humor.
In South Africa, the future looks promising. Personal robots are making life easier for the working class. The government is harnessing renewable energy to provide infrastructure for the poor. And in the bustling coastal town of Port Elizabeth, the economy is booming thanks to the genetic engineering industry that has found a welcome home there. Yes, the days to come are looking very good for South Africans. That is, if they can survive the present challenges:



A new hallucinogenic drug sweeping the country....
An emerging AI uprising....
And an ancient demigoddess hell-bent on regaining her former status by preying on the blood and sweat (but mostly blood) of every human she encounters

It's up to a young Zulu girl powerful enough to destroy her entire township, a queer teen plagued with the ability to control minds, a pop diva with serious daddy issues, and a politician with even more serious mommy issues to band together to ensure there's a future left to worry about.
Fun and fantastic, Nicky Drayden takes her brilliance as a short story writer and weaves together an elaborate tale that will capture your heart...even as one particular demigoddess threatens to rip it out.

I think therefore I am

Mindbending. Triggering. Inspiring. This book was like claws fully out, tearing into the fleshy bits of your heart and mind. Onayemi's performance gave life to these beautiful and awful words, making them even more powerful. I don't know if this book is for everyone but I'm glad I took the time.

meh

started great, then got.....a bit wild with the plot devices. it felt like there were too many stories here. God's, mech uprisings, biotech viral conspiracies. its a bit of a lot.

the mechanics of magic distribution is clunky and inconsistent, but fun all the same. loved the new lore, and had there were some excellently performed moments of comedy.
