Godkiller by Hannah Kaner

3.5 Stars

Thank you to Netgalley and HarperCollins UK for the advance reader copy of Godkiller for an honest review.

The books follows main character Kissen who kills Gods for a living following her family being killed by a god when she was a child. She enjoys her job until she finds a god that she cannot kill a god of white lies Skediceth who is connected to a noble girl.

We also have the perspective of Elogast who fought in the god war and purged a city of thousands of shrines. A request from the king sends him back to the city he destroyed.

The two paths cross and neither can find out the others secret.

An easy read with just over 300 pages and an interesting concept. The book has a lot of different representation from LGBTQ to disabilities which I thought was a very good aspect.

However the book shifts through the perspectives of the four main characters and I felt at times this affected the pacing and my interest as there were a couple of character perspectives I found less interesting than the others. It took me far longer to finish/get into the book than it should have.

Overall I enjoyed the premise of the story and I would give the second book a chance, however due to so many shifting perspectives I found it difficult to keep up interest in the story. 

Thanks for Reading!
