American Gods meets Watchmen in this mythology-inspired mystery from Karsten Knight, author of the Wildefire trilogy. 

In a city of gods and mortals, secrets never die. 

The gods walk among us. Some lurk in the shadows, masquerading as mortals; others embrace their celebrity status, launching careers from Hollywood to Capitol Hill. 

One of them just murdered Cairn Delacroix's mother. 

As Cairn sifts through the rubble, she uncovers a conspiracy two decades in the making: a cursed island, the fellowship of gods who journeyed there, and the unspeakable act that intertwined their fates. One by one, the members of that voyage are dying, and Cairn's investigations land her in the crosshairs of the rogue goddess responsible. 

With the help of Nanook, a polar bear god turned detective, Cairn descends into Boston's underworld of supernatural crime and political aspiration. To avenge her mother and unmask her assassin, she’ll first have to reckon with a gut-wrenching secret that will rewrite the life she thought she knew.


About Karsten:

Karsten Knight is the author of the historical mystery NIGHTINGALE, SING, the time-traveling thriller PATCHWORK, and the Polynesian volcano goddess trilogy WILDEFIRE (Simon & Schuster)--though some say his writing career peaked at the age of six, when he completed a picture book series about an adventurous worm. He is a graduate of College of the Holy Cross and earned an MFA in writing for children from Simmons College. Karsten resides in Boston, where he lives for fall weather, bowling, and football season.

Please check the Rockstar Book Tour website, since I'm having issues posting the informaiton to my blog. Apparently, it doesn't like going from a table format to a post.


  1. That's quite the comparison! I enjoyed both American gods and The Watchmen, so this one has my interest!

    1. I think I watched The Watchmen movie when it came out, but don't really remember anything about it! I've heard good things about American Gods, but haven't watched it! The comparison isn't what drew me to the book though, it was the synopsis itself. I'd also read something else by the author and enjoyed it. :)

  2. I am most definitely intrigued! ��✨

    1. I was too! Unfortunately, it wasn't for me. My DNF review will post tomorrow. :)

  3. I really like the sound of this one. Sounds like a book that I would probably enjoy.

    1. If you do decide to try it, I hope you end up liking it more than I did! <3
