Resume: Young. Wealthy. Elite. Attractive. The gentlemen’s secret society at Yale was filled with them. And Nathaniel Radcliffe, the bane of my existence, was one of them. As the right hand of the American Gods, he was conceited and arrogant. A dangerously handsome man in a tailored custom suit and shiny black oxford loafers. The classroom was our battlefield. I’d sworn I’d never give him the upper hand, until… The secret I’ve been hiding for the last three years? He just discovered it… and now he has all the power.
“He was a mere man, I knew that, but he and his friends were treated like gods. It didn’t help they looked like it, too. Intimidating, perfect and deadly.”
Filthy Gods is the prequel to the brand new series, American Gods, by R. Scarlett. The story starts with Yale law student Juliette Monroe, working as maid, finding out that her story of spending the summer in the South of France was discovered by her enemy and fellow Yale law student and heir Nathaniel Radcliffe.
The story is very short and well written overall. The characters are likable and I’m sure the readers will fall for them. There were some parts a bit
cringey and the book is very very cliche. I knew what was going to happen, how it was going to end and everything. I still enjoyed the book though.
The book is meant to start and hype a new series so I can accept how short the book is but I really wanted a bit more. I think some parts needed more details or we could have some extra scenes. Also, I didn’t exactly liked how Nathan was placed along with the “Gods”. I felt like he was their friends and part of the circle but at same time, I felt he was outside and not part of it. He deserved a bit more. Yet, it still does what is needed and I’m very excited for the series.
