Quick Summary:

God of small creatures fights off evil invaders.”

Corey, a former criminal, is given a new chance at life. Now he has a shot at real power. However, it comes with one caveat. His being is attached to a small group of cave gnomes. Their success grants him power; however, their decline can result in his death. It’s up to Corey to guide them. The only problem is that it’s against the rules for gods to communicate directly with their followers.

My Opinion (God of Gnomes)

I can’t recommend this book in good faith. There are parts of it that are cool and unique. I like that Corey can’t understand or directly communicate with his followers. It brings about some interesting interactions. And the progression of the Gnomes and their society is fascinating. Yet I don’t really like Corey or his helper sprite.

What I didn’t like

Corey is annoying and whines. It was bearable at first, but as the book goes on and you realize he doesn’t get much character growth in that regard, it gets more annoying. The sprite is a pretentious know-it-all who’s not even that helpful. A lot of this is bearable, though. What made me put the book down multiple times is the comedy. The comedic moments

Will I check out more from this series or author after this lazy review?
