The Human Alliance knew the war was over when the machines started using magic to cast fire, shake the ground, conjure storms, and part the seas.
We fought back anyway.
22-year-old soldier Gunnar Graves lost his faith and his family when a platoon of AI-driven war machines—led by an android fire mage—destroyed his unit. Forced to live in a machine-controlled village and hiding a dark secret, he spends his days trying to learn elemental power so he can take his revenge. After years of failure, his ability ignites when he least expects it.
On the run and hunted by the war machines, Gunnar discovers that an ancient, life-based strength has awakened to help humanity fight back. Joined by the other life mages, Gunnar is thrust into a mad world of android overlords, cyborg clans, and evil forces bent on his destruction.
To protect his newfound family, Gunnar must discover the truth behind a power he doesn’t understand and wage a war he doesn’t believe they can win.
My thoughts: Steal Fire from the Gods is an epic, one of a kind story about a young man who has survived the impossible who is trying to hid in plain sight. When events force him to step out of the shadows for what is right, he puts not only himself in danger, but also the town he has sought refuge in.
I love the journey that Gunner goes on, as well as the layers of secrets surrounding him and the world he is a part of! This story is set in a unique world where the machines have taken over. I love that there is some magic, as well as a deeper message. I look forward to reading more by this author!
I received this book from the author. This is my honest review.
