Book: Echoes of the Gods by Gaia Solcategories: Book, Fantasy, Mythology, Action Adventure, Gay Romance
Gaia Solabout this book: I've always loved mythology, both Eastern and Western, and it is that enduring fascination with the old legends and a more recent appreciation for the heady world of gay fantasy that found expression as Echoes of the Gods.
This story is a gay romance at the heart of an interstellar, action-adventure in which Norse, Egyptian, Greek and Babylonian mythologies intersect in passionate and perilous ways.
Shara and Yngvi are both skilled warriors, brave and loyal, who are drawn to each other by an undeniable attraction and violent circumstances that take them on a journey across the stars to stop a renegade god on a murderous rampage. But beneath all their struggles—the battles, the treachery and the sex—runs a secondary, unifying thread of self-discovery.
The cover aims to reflect the celestial scope of the book and convey a sort of "cosmic hum", the kind I imagine the heavens would emit, while the title teases a clue to the plot. And given the book's subject, a pseudonym combining the Greek and Norse mythological equivalents of my real name and surname seemed appropriate!
It was an absolute joy for me to learn about the Babylonian pantheon, adapt the old myths from the three other better-known mythologies, and weave them into a tale of gods and monsters, the ultimate triumph of good over evil and love against all odds.
Echoes of the Gods is my first novel and I really hope you enjoy reading it. As an indie author, I depend heavily on reviews and word-of-mouth to gain readership (and also encouragement), so I'd really appreciate it if you rated and reviewed the book on Amazon.
Thank you for stopping by, and happy reading!
