Gods of Anthem by Logan Keys

Oceans apart, a young musician and a “special” soldier embark on a perilous journey for home fueled by the unyielding pursuit of freedom from the Authority.

Sixteen-year-old prodigy, Liza Randusky, waits imprisoned, blamed for the undead plague that’s slowly destroying the planet. Banished to an island where she’ll never play her beloved piano again, Liza’s steadfast sense of justice and passion for music may have the power to change her destiny. But will it be enough...

To strike back at the new world order, the troubled son of a preacher, Thomas Ripley-Hatter, suffers unspeakable alterations by the Underground to join a secret Army. Tommy knows that all hope lies in human-weapons like himself, and that somehow he must cling to his sanity…while letting loose the monster to win.

The battle begins for the last-standing sliver of humanity: Anthem.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

This could be the hardest book I have ever had to review. Now it is not because the book is bad, in fact I thoroughly enjoyed the book and had a hard time walking away from it. But because throughout the book it feels as though I am reading 2 very different stories that just happen to be set in the same universe. First you have Liza’s story and it is confusing and heartwarming, but be prepared for a rollercoaster ride with her. Then you have Tommy and his story is all manly and confusing but much more straightforward. Now add a backdrop of zombies and military and dictatorship and you have the universe setting. And trust me, there is plenty of action and heroic measures throughout the book. But I didn't see how it all fit together until the very end and then I was left with more questions. If the author happens to read this review please tell me this is going to be a series. I need more. I need to know what happens next and if sweet JoJo is okay. Oh there is so much to say that I can't due to I don't do spoilers. All I can say is this an action book that MAKES you think.

Recommended for ages 17+ due to sexual content and violence.

Logan began writing horror and poetry early in life but she says young-adult dystopian is the next best thing. She's currently living on the Island of Oahu in Hawaii with her husband, daughter, and fur-child Lola. Even though it's a tropical setting, her writing remains the same moody narrative she's always enjoyed.
