A Plague of Giants (Seven Kennings, #1)A Plague of Giants by Kevin Hearne

Hearne writes a complex and masterfully detailed plot of a world where you risk your life to gain magic and you use your life up to use it. Diverse and original, with intense world building, A Plague of Giants is definitely one of a kind read.

I loved how the storyteller took the form of each character transferring the dictation to a semi- “first-person” point of view. I loved the entire concept but in the end, I struggled with this one. 3.5 stars for me.

It took me a while to find myself intrigued and even longer to find myself drawn in. I'm chalking it up to it being the first in a new series with lots of world building. The overall concept is there and makes you want to go on. But even the conclusion left a lot open-ended, which I'm assuming is for the next installment, but still leaving me feel there was just not enough.

I received this ARC copy from Random House Publishing Group - Ballantine - Del Rey. This is my honest and voluntary review. A Plague of Giants is set for publication October 3, 2017.
