Publisher's Summary

Oceans apart, a young musician and a "special" soldier embark on a perilous journey for home fueled by the unyielding pursuit of freedom from the Authority.
Sixteen-year-old prodigy, Liza Randusky, waits imprisoned, blamed for the undead plague that's slowly destroying the planet. Banished to an island where she'll never play her beloved piano again, Liza's steadfast sense of justice and passion for music may have the power to change her destiny. But will it be enough...?
To strike back at the new world order, the troubled son of a preacher, Thomas Ripley-Hatter, suffers unspeakable alterations by the Underground to join a secret Army. Tommy knows that all hope lies in human-weapons like himself, and that somehow he must cling to his sanity...while letting loose the monster to win.
The battle begins for the last-standing sliver of humanity: Anthem.

Did I read the same book as everyone else??

On seeing this, I hopped over to both here and Goodreads to see some reviews and seeing all the positive ones I jumped at the chance to listen to it. Maybe it was my state of mind but I didn't enjoy it as much as I hoped. I felt like some of the story was missing and disjointed. At one stage when Liza is on the island and suddenly their are some "zombies" there but we never get told how they got there, nor what happened after. This happened a few times throughout the book! I had to keep rewinding the audio to see if maybe I drifted off and missed parts.

Then there was pacing issues. The book is told in dual POVs, which was fine but Lizas journey was a lot less exciting than Tommys, plus felt more disjointed than his. His I could understand but her's was ....., I don't know really. I just didn't connect to her.

While I thoroughly enjoyed the narration, there was a lot of different characters and accents, that at times I was confused by who was talking at any given time. I felt like it was a chore to try to follow every single character to see who was talking!!

Unfortunately this wasn't something I enjoyed too much, but going by the ratings, a lot of people did, so by all means, give it a go and I hope you enjoy it more.

*I received a copy of this for review. This in no way affected my thoughts.*

Fantastic story

What did you love best about Gods of Anthem?

Having read and reviewed the e-book copy, I couldn't wait to see how this translated to audio.

This was my first audio book and it was a great one to start with.

Gods of Anthem is a rollicking good yarn filled with memorable characters, mysteries, tensions, heartbreak and some twists and turns you don't see coming.

I cannot recommend this book highly enough.

What other book might you compare Gods of Anthem to and why?

Although Gods of Anthem fits squarely into YA-dystopian, it is a difficult book to categorise. You could compare it to other works - Alice in No Man's Land, Divergent, Hunger Games, V for Vendetta, but it is more than that. Logan Keys takes the genre and makes it her own. Gods of Anthem is unique.

Which character – as performed by Rhiannon Angell – was your favorite?

Rise. Dare to dream, dare to live, dare to survive.
