Kala Hicks never imagined she’d be fighting demons, angels and gods when she joined the Navy. But when her elite covert military team is on a mission aboard Air Force One and Kala is forced to shoot the President her life changes forever. The moment the President is killed the Titan god, Atlas, speaks to Kala, telling her that she has to do his job by committing one act of atrocity every four days… or the world will end. Kala faces off against creatures of legend; from demons determined to make her fail and plunge the Earth into chaos, to angels who don’t trust her to do the job and are willing to kill her to claim it for themselves.
Pitted against the forces of good and evil, Kala must choose whether to save the world by doing the unthinkable, or sit back and let it burn.
Four days later, she’ll have to do it again.
Atlas by Becca C. Smith is such an off the beaten path book! It was a cohesive blend of many elements that all fought for my attention. There is plenty of action that draws you into the story, and the fast pace keeps you involved until the very end.
I don't think the romance is over done, and I was so glad for it. Kayla is a great heroine, and I enjoyed following her story. She wasn't perfect by any means, but that's why I loved her. She was real. No special snowflakes here!
I've never had the privilege of reading any of Smith's books before. After reading Atlas, I'll be seeking them out. Her writing style makes for such an edge of the seat read. I couldn't look away from my Kindle while reading this. Urban fantasy fans will love this one!
