Gods of Manhattan by Scott Mebus

Reviewed by Miss Dewey at Orenda

Five paw prints! Have you ever seen a rat and a squirrel kung fu fight, a stone gargoyle eat a pigeon, or talked to a cockroach? No? Well, Rory Hennessy has and he wished he hadn’t. Rory lives in New York City and he has a gift and a curse. Rory can see Mannahatta a city that exists in and around New York City. The residents of Mannahatta are former New York City residents (real New York State historical figures for anyone who likes American history) who were so famous in life that when they died they became Gods in Mannahatta. But there is a problem in Mannahatta. Gods don’t die but someone has created a knife that can kill gods and he wants to take over Mannahatta. Rory has the power to help the residents of Mannahatta but he doesn’t know who to trust. If you love fantasy or historical fiction you should love this book. Luckily this is the first book in a new series and if you want to learn more then you will have to visit .

This book rocked!! The author did a great job describing the scene, at some points I thought I was in NY city. I give ti 10 stars out of a possibility of 5.
