A genre-bending breakout novel from a bold, fresh voice in contemporary fiction, think Highlander.
Debilitated in Afghanistan, Angus MacDonald struggles to find peace and escape his nightmares. He visits Culloden Battlefield, Scotland, the pitiless field where his ancestors were butchered and the MacDonald clan lost its power. Ancient voices traumatize him and reveal a shocking connection to his relatives who died there in 1746, where he now stands. The voices compel him to fight again, but this time against an unworldly enemy.
To protect humankind from slavery Angus must face the past, but more troubling, his future while unraveling the mystery of his heritage. He strives to discover millennia-old truths from Olympus, Greece, and the violent history that produced them. The truth of who bred him to die saving humanity. The most crucial battle of Angus’s story begins on the same infamous field of his clan’s decimation, but worse, when he returns to Washington, D.C., war follows.
Rob James’ WHEN GODS CLASH includes a fascinating take on Greek mythology through vivid world-building. This novel is a searing, unique makeover of loved themes.
