For Gods and For Men (Lifeblood Saga, #1)

For Gods and For Men (Lifeblood Saga, #1) - James R.  Johnson What were the main relationships explored in this book? Marcus - Priscus - Sedjet. The story explores all angles of Marcus' relationships with others as he goes about his quest of saving the world. I loved the dark feel of the book although the cover doesn't seem to relate to the story and I think a more appealing cover would do wonders for the story.

3 things I liked about the book … I loved the concept. The book description states it is epic written in a unique setting and time frame. This is definitely what you get from the story. The use of immortality and how Marcus deals with. Death scares many of us but immortality seems to bring its own set of problems as well. Lastly, I liked the ending. Although it is not open ended, it enables the reader to reflect on the story they have just read.

Favourite character(s) … Marcus, obviously. He starts off trying to find out more about himself but by the end realises that he has more strength and knowledge than he knows. Whether he is comfortable with this is a different story, but there's more than one story in this book and this is why I liked it.
