Mask of the Gods is a strong start to the upcoming Mask Chronicles. I had trouble putting it down and found myself immersed in the world created by Karen Furk, the author of the debut novel. It was thrilling and overall a fantastic read.
I would catch myself cheering for Haydan, the storm rider, swooning over the bonding of souls, and gasping during the intense scenes. Furk does a great job painting a new world, and I can’t begin to praise this book enough!
Mask of the Gods is a vortex of swirling fantasy and twisting plot, which pulls you in and surrounds you with tricksy fae and madcap adventure.
