Book Review: Harsh Gods by Michelle Belanger

Harsh Gods
By Michelle Belanger
Genre: Urban Fantasy, Dark Fantasy, Paranormal
Publisher: Titan Books

The last thing Zack Westland expects on a frigid night is to be summoned to an exorcism.

Demonic possession, however, proves the least of his problems. Father Frank, a veteran turned priest, knows Zack’s deepest secrets, recognizing him as Anakim—an angel of the hidden tribe. And Halley, the girl they’ve come to save, carries a secret that could unlock a centuries-old evil. She chants an eerie rhyme, and she isn’t alone…


As Zack's secrets spill out, far more than his life is at stake, for Halley is linked to an ancient conspiracy. Yet Zack can't help her unless he's willing to risk losing his immortality—and reigniting the Blood Wars.

Praise for Conspiracy of Angels:

“Horrors that will send a chill up your spine.” —The Absolute

“A singular reading experience.” —Laurell K. Hamilton, bestselling creator of Anita Blake, vampire hunter

My Review

Zack Westland is an awesome character. I was hooked on his ruggedness and humor. Belanger has created angels that balance good and evil, and have a wicked historical tie to one another. I adored young Halley who is battling a possession. The friendship that is created between larger than life, Zach and tiny, Halley is great. They teach one another about bravery. 

The plot is thick and the action is never-ending which makes this text heavy read delightful. The pop culture references tugged at my heart strings. While I don't think you would miss a beat in Harsh Gods if you haven't read 
Conspiracy of Angels, it's definitely going on my TBR list because I have fallen for these group of misfits and I need to know more. So good!
