I really enjoyed this story. Set in the future where water has covered most of the planet these towers, aka the fingers are where the last of humanity lives according to their class. There were others that were washed away when the waters came but something magical has happened and they want their places back. I really enjoyed the world building and the character development. It leaves you with a huge cliffhanger so I suppose unless the author has another book planned its up to your imagination to guess what happens next.… (mer)

Gods and goldlings have escaped heaven and are running around, causing chaos. David Mogo uses his abilities as a demigod to help chase them down.

This was a fun book but there were parts where I was hoping for something more. I absolutely loved the concept and the setting though!

I'd still recommend it though, especially to those who want to read outside of the usual countries that dominate literature.

A really different setting from what I usually read, but a good story with a great supporting cast.

On the whole I thought that this was a pretty good first novel. The pluses include the high concept of the story, the visceral feel of the setting, and I rather liked the main character. Less good is that the three-part structure of the book felt like the same story being told three times, the plotting (for lack of a better term) seemed a bit thin at times, and it was a mixed bag about how seriously I could take a lot of the remaining characters. Still, I thought that Okungbowa stuck the landing and I'd give some other work of his a try in the future.… (mer)
