Champions: At fire's end (Champions #1) by Charlotte Jain

Champions: At fire's end (Champions, #1)Isn’t that just like the gods, use the youth and vitality of normal human teens to fight their battles, feed them little to no information and allow them to fumble, fight and discover truths on their own. Champions: At Fire’s End by Charlotte Jain is the cornerstone for her new series and it looks to be a great one!

The Titans and Olympians are at it again, but this time, they have arranged for their battles to be fought by four teens, two to a side, using the power of the elements. These teens are mortals, pawns in a game they are forced to play, but only one side can win and only two Champions will return to their mortal lives, while the losing gods will spend eternity in Tartarus. Two teens have been raised by immortals, two have been thrust into this battle clueless and disbelieving, while all four discover they may not be getting the full story for anyone and there is no one to trust but themselves. Get ready to see the gods at their most manipulative, teens at their most rebellious and confused.

Charlotte Jain has set the stage with great attention to detail as she takes us on the first leg of the battle of the ages. With conniving characters, gods who have their own agendas and teens who realize they are fodder for the gods and treated like mushrooms when they are kept in the dark, only “the flame” they are given sheds any light on what they are up against. Best friends will be pitted against each other with clueless partners who are thrown in the mix to be convinced, trained and battle ready. Is everyone as they seem? High School is full of unique personalities, but even there, some may not be as they seem. Let Charlotte Jain fill your heads with a fantasy of the gods, the resilience of youth and the fear for what is about to happen. This series is going places and I want to be right there in the middle of it all!

I received a review copy from Charlotte Jain in exchange for my honest review.
