Review by: Anthony Davis on Feb. 24, 2013 :
This is an original and imaginative creation of a future time. At least, we assume it`s the future. Who can explain the nature of space and time. Normally I would take ages to read a book but this time I wanted to know what would happen next. I can`t wait to read the next installment. HYCLOS. I`m sure it will not disappoint.

Review by: Pauline Forrester on Dec. 29, 2012 :
Flawed Gods is believable enough to be true, with well defined, realistic characters and background information. Diverse enough for eveyone to enjoy. Step out of the box and start the rollercoater. Fun, interesting and a little bizarre. Five stars for oginality.

Review by: Ben Brown on June 26, 2012 :
Flawed Gods is a beautifully woven hybrid of both sci-fi and fantasy. The author manages to move seamlessly from our world, to those she has created. Unlike with so many fantasy books, at no point did I feel that she had taken a step to far. She handles the balance between believability, and outright fantasy, with all the skill of a tightrope walker. At no point does she topple into the cliché, or over trodden paths of others.
The characters in this book are well formed and completely compelling. Doella, the main character, is a good example of this. I could totally see her in my mind’s eye, and I wasn’t always sure that I liked what I saw. That’s one of the things I liked about this book, too often characters are too black or white. For me, Doella was kind of gray—as are many people in the real world. Nobody is perfect, least of all, a flawed God.
I highly recommend this book to lovers of both fantasy and sci-fi—the rest of you will love it too, I know I did. Five stars.

A highly original first novel, adult, compelling and avant-garde. Vividly imagined, with a relentless, exciting pace. the author's invention of lamina physics is an especially ingenious touch. A must-read for those who are tired of traditional fantasy scenarios. Highly recommended.
