Review: The Wicked & The Divine, Kieron Gillen

The Wicked & The Divine, Kieron Gillen
Every ninety years, twelve gods incarnate as humans. They are loved. They are hated. In two years, they are dead. This is a world where gods are the ultimate pop stars and pop stars are the ultimate gods. But remember: just because you’re immortal, doesn’t mean you’re going to live forever.

Kieron Gillen is a British writer and journalist best known for his work in comics and entertainment media.

Gods.... popstars. In this book they are the same and they love to make trouble. It was entertaining but it took me some time to get all the characters in place. I enjoyed how Lauren and Cassandra, both had their own reasons to follow the group of gods. I liked the idea of Lauren trying to save a God. The story was filled with both bolt images and language so not for the faint-hearted.
