The world-shattering conclusion of Paternus, a highly entertaining contemporary fantasy debut of epic proportions.
The Paternus trilogy has been an absolute blast to read from the first book to the last. Any reader who enjoyed the first two will get a whopping dose of more of what we loved in War of Gods.
The fantastic characterizations which seize the reader continues on a massive scale in the final edition of the trilogy. So much action plus a wild plot with a great redemption line makes this tale one you won’t want to put down. Ashton’s work has managed the thrill of our favorite action movies, and combined it with a ton of mythology and magic. The sheer scale of the cast is amazing and anyone who loves mythology will find hundreds of reasons to love this trilogy. It was easy to become emotionally invested in these characters and the storyline.
Ashton’s skill improves in every book and the characterizations are deepened. The lore and mythology continues on scale that is unlike any other I’ve read. What could have been a droning lesson in history becomes a fantastic tale of the final battle for our earth. I am, as always, astounded by the amount of research that has gone into these books.
Ashton’s point of view head hopping feels seamless as the most massive war ever fought rages in a mind boggling display of creativity. There is so much happening in so many places that the reader wants to know about. Every installment of the trilogy has gotten better and this finale was full of the banter we love, the action we crave, the information we need, and unique urban fantasy we are always looking for. The Twins were a lot of fun and all our favorites have their moments to shine. The two main protagonists have had not yet a week to discover who they are and what they can do. This gives this explosive ending a lot of weight at 760 pages of goodness.
Thrilling and heartbreaking equally, with a surprising and satisfying end. Highly recommended reading for all fantasy lovers who enjoy mythology delivered at a breakneck pace.

About the Author: Dyrk Ashton was born in Athens (Ohio, not Greece), on a chilly Halloween morning. He whiled away his adolescent years and teens in cornfields, woods, rivers, ditches and haymows, climbing trees, running along barn beams, riding, wrestling, soccering, fighting BB gun wars, reading Stuart Little, Jonathan Livingston Seagull, everything Verne, London, Kipling, White, Lewis, Doyle, Burroughs, Poe, Howard, Fleming, Lovecraft, Tolkein, Zelazny, and generally ignoring school — though he somehow managed excellent grades (except in Algebra, of course).
