    Gods and Warriors is a book packed with action and adventures. It also includes the customs and religions of the different clans. The book tells where the main character Hylas gets separated with his sister and goes on a journey full of danger and mystery to find her back. I really admire the bravery and love of Hylas, because he goes on a journey he knows nothing about to find his beloved sister, Issi, and he would not stop until he finds her, this also shows great love of Issi from Hylas. I recommend this book to Percy Jackson lovers and people who like books with action and adventure.

            This book is a little confusing in the beginning but it all straightens out and creates a masterpiece of a story.

              Gods and Warriors was a very intriguing, quick paced book. It had refrences to customs and religions of the clans that were hard to get at first, but then the book explained it. With action and suspense, I think that it was an extremely good read.

                  I really enjoyed reading Gods and Warriors because it's action-packed twists and breath-taking cliffhangers keep you on the edge of your seat. This book is about a young Outsiders named Hylas who when surprised by the Crows, fierce warriors who armor is as black as their soul, is separated from his younger sister Issi and sets off on a journey full of mystery and danger to get her back. I highly recomend this book for action fans and historians alike, along with lovers of Percy Jackson. Beautiful language, vivid imagery and a stunning setting equal an amazing book all in all.
