Whom the Gods Would Destroy - Brian Hodge

 

 

This was a very thought provoking read that masterfully mixes science fiction and horror. Damien is the central character in the tale and the author does a great job in fleshing him out, creating a sympathetic but flawed man and one who is still trying to make peace with his turbulent upbringing.

The writing was beautiful, the pace was steady but still drew you in to the story although at times the science descriptions got very detailed. I think the author also wanted readers to really think about the subject matter, giving enough information to follow the plot without completely guiding the reader to the conclusion.

I will guarantee that after reading this, you will never look at the stars in the same way.
