For Gods and For Men (Lifeblood Saga, #1)

For Gods and For Men (Lifeblood Saga, #1) - James R.  Johnson Did the plot pull you in or did you feel you had to force yourself to read the book? Many of us at the book club had differing views. Most enjoyed the flow amidst it's own world created by the author. Some felt it was slow. I felt it was in between. There were sections that pulled me in and then there were others that felt like it was a forced read .

How realistic was the characterization? The author has used myths and simple ideas to weave a story and characters that you will not hear about everyday. All of this is fiction but as they plod through their journey, the reader is able to feel their emotions and can understand what they were going through.

How does the setting figure into the book? The setting was people traveling. Their journey is not entirely a pleasant one and involves an end goal that does not seem attainable. It is during this journey, that each character finds out more about each other and not always in a non-violent manner. The journey also explains the book title, For Gods and For Men.

Disclosure - As a Quality Reads Book Club member, I received a free copy of this book from the author via Orangeberry Book Tours in exchange for my honest review.
