Book Review of “Minor Gods” by A.M. Yates


Josie Day has spent her life training to lead the Core—summoners who use ancient masks to channel the elemental powers of the gods.
But then her mother is murdered by a mysterious Earth Goddess. And the power meant to be Josie’s passes to her sister instead. Worse, the Earth Goddess escapes.
Now, Josie must prepare her sister to lead the fractious Core. Except her sister would rather be hanging at the mall with her too-perfect boyfriend. And, in truth, Josie would rather be hunting down the Goddess.
When the Goddess returns and attacks, a shadowy Fire God comes to the rescue. But until Josie knows who is behind the mask, she isn’t sure she wants his help or the heat igniting between them.
With the Goddess plotting a war against humanity, Josie has to accept what she’s lost if she’s going to save what she has left.

Minor Gods is a gripping YA urban fantasy unlike any other. If you’re ready to be swept into a world of breathtaking magic with an iron-willed heroine and a simmering romance, pick up Minor Gods today.  (From Amazon) I give this book a 4 out of 5 stars. 

**I was given this book to review by the Author A.M. Yates, in exchange for an honest review**

So, This is only the 3rd Mythology book that I have ever read. My first two I have also written reviews about. So I am still considered a newbie to the world of mythology. With this book it was a bit hard for me to follow the first half, I was worried that I would not be able to finish it. However, that most definitely wasnt the case.

“Minor Gods” is Book One of “The Summoners” series.  Book two is “Lost Gods” And book three is “Fated Gods” I will eventually be buying both of those, because of the way “Minor Gods” ended, I have to find out how this whole story will pan out.

There were so many characters, that I thoroughly enjoyed. Simmone, Kai, Josie, Beech, Gretchen, and Judah, (he was a tough one, part of me dislikes him, and the other part of me loves him) I found myself rooting for Judah, the real jerk of the book.  There is another character, that I love, but I don’t want to post about this character, so I don’t spoil anything.

Mrs. Yates did such a great job with this book, and with her genuine writing skills, has left me wanting more. I need to know how this story ends, I need to see that this group of characters gets the ending they deserve.

I am happy that I came across Mrs. Yates Instagram page, and asked if she would be willing to let me review her book. I look forward to following her, on her long career!

Be sure to give her a follow on her Instagram page

“I don’t need to be introduced,” 
“No one is allowed inside.” 
“Yeah, but—” Beech started. 
Josie cut in. “Well, then why don’t you trot on in to your masters, Fido, and tell them that I’m here. Good boy.” – A.M. Yates
