I wasn't sure what I would be getting when I purchased "Avatar Gods", but I ended up finding an imaginative short story that blended futuristic technology, intrigue, political suspense and just plain old science fiction fun.
In the book, a select group of people have retreated in a VR world to create a utopia of their own, but that world is threatened by the US government. So, in league with their leader Afroditee and the avatar gods like her, they wage a war against their oppressors in an effort to finally be free and live the life that they dream of.
Using a wonderful blend of excellent writing that allows the reader to create vivid images of the book in their mind to a fantastic attention to detail and the use of full formed characters, "Avatar Gods" is an imaginative short story that will draw you in and make a covert out of you!

I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this novel. I'm not usually one for fantasy, but I was intrigued by the plot and gave it a try. The young wizard, Dekor, is a wizard who has a great amount of desire for power, for knowledge, a thirst for the ability to prove his worth and to be more than what he is seen as. This leads him on a journey that has far reaching consequences and that begins an epic fantasy story with Dekor and his wizardry at that heart of it.

"Thump" is the kind of intensely riveting novel that hooks you from the very beginning and sends you on a tumultuous journey of lust, intrigue, greed, power, sexual harassment and racial tension. It's a drama that deals with sex and racism, office liaisons and questionable actions; it's sharp, well-written, vividly engaging and rife with tension that sets a wonderfully compelling tone from start to finish.
Avraham Azrieli does an excellent job of pulling the reader into the story, building up layer upon layer as characters are introduced, intentions are revealed and a courtroom battle takes place that is as dramatic as it is captivating. The story is filled with thoughtful commentary on everything from discrimination to racism and sexism. It's the kind of story that you just have to finish and that lingers with you long after the story is over.
Overall, I was completely captivated by "Thump" and the author's talent at drawing me into the story. As an introduction to Avraham Azrieli as an author I think this was a promising start to a successful career as an author.
