Our Work is Our Play!

WHAT’S THE STORY? Gods, which one would you prefer?

MorriganFunny, but the fiction many people are writing/reading today have to do with magic and different gods from the past; such as the Percy Jackson series, the Harry Potter series, even the Hobbit series. If you have been following this blog then you know that Kate has been dealing with the same things.

Ilona Andrews has tapped into this obsession that the current society seems to be fascinated with; in fact the twist she has put on ‘magic and technology’ has to be making the “Ancient Alien” guys say, “I think maybe it’s possible” instead of “I think not”. After all, we have the myths of Atlantis and alchemy, now we have technology. The legends had to come from somewhere. Think about it.

We have ancient texts, like Gilgamesh and then for some reason there is nothing for a thousand years. Did their technology rise to the extent that their books were no longer recorded on paper/parchment/papyrus (think about e-books). Maybe when magic swung back into play, it was all lost, much like Kate’s time period.

Kate leads us from not so merry adventure to not so merry adventure. But as we travel with her, we get to meet a variety of gods. What’s funny is that, to date, they’re all from what some would call pagan religions (realize that pagan means many gods or of nature, not evil). We get a background on Celtic gods like Morrigan, Norse gods such as Loki, gods from India, Gilgamesh, and many others. So come join Ilona Andrews and revisit the past with a new mind-set.
