Of Gods & Monsters (Elysian Gods Book 1) by Zavi James
OF GODS & MONSTERS by Zavi James Release Date: November 16
“I don’t think getting to know me that intimately is part of the job description,” I whispered in her ear, amused by the salacious thoughts. Who’d have guessed the stiff in the lab coat would have such a dirty mind? “Let me make this clear. I would never touch a filthy mortal like you in such a way.”
Dr Quentin Scott doesn’t believe in the Gods. Forsaken at every turn of her life, she refuses to kneel before them and beg for scraps. But when she is recruited to the E.L.I project, Quen is forced to come face to face with the Gods she detests.
Grayson, God of Chaos, never wanted to be part of the project. He would happily spend his days in Upper Elysia, watching the madness he created unfold amongst the mortals, but he’s outnumbered. When he’s paired with a disrespectful nonbeliever, Gray’s temper leads his every action. And then he senses the chaos that lies beneath the pretty façade, and he vows to break her.
As Grayson and Quentin lock horns over the smallest things, something sparks between them. But a spark can become a raging inferno in the blink of an eye and the damage done may be irreparable. When secrets emerge that could shift the balance of powers in Elysia, decisions must be made and there’s no such thing as an easy choice.
The Gods have come to play, but it’s a dangerous game. Who can you trust?
*This book contains sexually explicit scenes, mature language, discussion of deceased parents and a train accident and OM/OW drama. Not intended for readers below 18. Reader discretion is advised.*
That was a great read. And what a way to start a new series. Being the first book in a new series is always a gamble, it will either have you wanting more (which it will) or wary about picking the next book up.
Grayson is the God of Chaos and Destruction, and he certainly lives up to his title!
Quentin is a biology researcher. With a brilliant mind and a level head. Which she’s going to need as she part of a new group (Elysian Liaison Initiative or ELI as it’s known by) they are to study the Gods that that agreed to the study. Well most of them have, Grayson is none too pleased at being summoned, and let’s everyone around him know it!
There are warnings about triggers that could upset people, so read them before making your mind up.
I could easily see this as a movie or made into a series. The world in which Quen and Gray live in is so detailed and well thought out.
The chemistry between the two characters is off the charts! But Gray isn’t into mortals, and would NEVER think of Quen in that way! But the more time he spends with her, the more times he pushes her buttons, it has him thinking of taking it a little further with this fragile human! But Quen isn’t here to date! She’s here to further her career. She might think the God of Chaos is just perfect, but she’s not going to be swayed to his way of thinking!
The ending has a twist and a cliffhanger! And it’s one I thought was just brilliant, although it does mean waiting for the next book!
“The Gods have come to play, but who can you trust?”
