    Incredibly disappointing since the overwhelming good reviews on goodreads had me really excited to read this book It reads like a self published piece with no editor a potentially interesting idea with horrible execution and poor writing I was literally cringing as I read this because the clunky writing reminded me of exactly how I used to write when I was in middle school I generally do not post reviews on books I didn't enjoy because I don't want to publicly bash someone's work but in this case I really want to help even out all those baffling 5 star reviews that convinced me to read this in the first place If you enjoy Halloween and teen fiction go ahead and give it a try but don't let the shining reviews here on goodreads feed your expectations

    The idea of a thriller novel that brings together magic mythology religion and suspense to tell the story of Halloweengood The execution of this idea in Gods of the Nowherehumorously bad There was nothing scary or chilling about this novel except that the majority of reviews for it seem positive FrighteningI'm with my fellow book club member on this Highly recommend skipping Gods of the Nowhere

    Good book for Halloween Great story filled with characters you can hate or love or both The author follows the rule of three pretty much to the letter making it somewhat predictable but nonetheless a fun spooky read The writing was smooth although a few typos in the first edition and evenly paced On a bit of a negative note the book is largely blasphemous so if that bothers you don't pick this one up

    Best horrorfantasy book I have read in uite a while The book deals with my favorite holiday Halloween Solid plot and character development I wondered if I would like a book mainly about teens albeit older teens But the book held my attention and is easy reading If witches assorted fantasy characters cemeteries lots of animated corpses and a killer car interest you then this is your book

    The novel Gods of the Nowhere A novel of Halloween is an interesting Horror book about the Celtic rituals around Halloween and what the Gods do for it I can;t really say a lot about the book or else it will give everything away or be entirely confusing and no one will understand the review so I will try my best This novel is set in 200 Ad Ireland and talks about the veil of the living and dead being the thinnest on Halloween so that's when the Duieties or the Powerful Celtic Priests are able to do the most magic These Priests are doing magic to win a war over taxes but something really bad and horrible goes wrong and the Devil is parading around the towns looking for new victims Even thought this book really creeped me out at night and I had to read it mostly during the day it was a great horror story but not as terrifying as Coraline was which was nice because I had no nightmares for a while I have been traveling and I have visited Ireland so it intrigued me to read this novel about the Celtic rituals used during Halloween and to keep the Devil away because I have been to the place they were talking about I also liked the twist at the end because as the reader the ending is not something that you would expect out of a novel like this one but it isn't upsetting at all I also thought it was a good read and well written if you are looking for a good horror book this would be the one I would tell others to read because its not blood and gore 247 I would put a warning on it though that it is not something to be taken lightly that a person should be cautious to whom they have read it because it can be very freaky

    Gods of the Nowhere A Novel of Halloween really is the ultimate Halloween read Every fall I enjoy reading books that are dark and creepy with some sort of Halloweenish vibe but this is the first book I've read that so perfectly captures All Hallows Eve It managed to be adventurous and imaginative without being juvenile It was fun yet had a bit of a horror like tone Basically it would be a great Tim Burton movie Most of all I love the world building James Tipper did here The Nowhere was so well described that I was able to paint a very vivid picture of it in my mind and I thoroughly enjoyed the crypt of animated skeletons village of evil witches army of bloodthirsty Leeches swamps full of monsters etc It was like a dark evil WonderlandUnderworld hybrid full of all things Halloween I also liked how Gods of the Nowhere A Novel of Halloween tied in some of the origins of Halloween or Samhain by bringing in Celtic druids The book actually begins in medieval times with a battle between two Celtic druids leading armies belonging to kings While I found the beginning battle pretty hard to pay attention to eventually those scenes tied in to the rest of the storyline and I liked that it was included To be honest I had difficulty paying attention intermittently throughout the whole book but I really think that it's just where my mind is at lately Lala Land Despite my attention deficit type issues I still say this is a fantastic Halloween novel that was a perfect October read ☆☆☆☆
