Summary of the Book:

‘Gaining their ink was just the first step. Now they have to earn it.’

Christian Blake, an unruly English teenager, finds himself in a mysterious tattoo parlour in Connaught Square where he is possessed by a Rune God, Hagalaz, and given the power to harness the forces of nature. Only problem? Hagalaz doesn’t like to play nice. He is the God of Disruption, and he is intent on making Christian’s life a living hell.

Christian’s mentor, The Raven, pulls him from his relative comfort in London and takes him across the world to join his Tribe, a group of four unlikely teenagers with their own newly-gifted magical powers. They are tasked with taking on the forces of evil brewing across the globe: The Settlers, a growing group of aliens that have slowly integrated themselves into the mainstream of Planet Earth’s politics and positions of power.

They have a dark secret, and it the Tribe’s mission to discover what that is and to put a stop to it. But nothing is what it seems, for it will take much more than the powers of a few long-forgotten gods to put an end to the impending global catastrophe that threatens to destroy everything and anyone in its path.

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I enjoyed most of the characters that are in this book. There were a lot of them and sometimes hard to keep track of at time. I did love the idea of the runes and the gods wanting human vessels. I found it entertaining the growith of the powers and that it ink and tattoos that are the focus of gaining powers. I never read anything like this and it takes my made off into all kind of new thoughts. I will have to now check out the rest of the series.

My Rating of the Book: 4 Stars
