    Little Gods, A Tale of Ancient Wonders is a satisfying read I especially recommend this novel for readers fond of the pre Christian era history, the formation of monotheistic cultures and or ancient Middle East history The novel is well researched and written with an authentic voice I am an avid reader of historical fiction I appreciate when an author puts in the work to take his readers on a realistic journey Levkoff has achieved this in spades.Little Gods follows the lives of two boys bor Little Gods, A Tale of Ancient Wonders is a satisfying read I especially recommend this novel for readers fond of the pre Christian era history, the formation of monotheistic cultures and or ancient Middle East history The novel is well researched and written with an authentic voice I am an avid reader of historical fiction I appreciate when an author puts in the work to take his readers on a realistic journey Levkoff has achieved this in spades.Little Gods follows the lives of two boys born in the year 76 B.C.E One is considered evil for his birth mark, and the other considered blessed for his miraculous survival following a traumatic incident at his birth Their childhood shapes their adulthood and ultimately leads to a final standoff pitting good against evil The language is rich and immerses the reader in antiquity, never letting us forget we are not in modern times The story unfolds slowly, patiently, revealing just what we need to keep the pages turning Levkoff intersperses the ancient tale with snippets from the modern war of the Kurds against Saddam I didn t know where he was going with this, the plot in these short chapters appears so random, but Levkoff pulls it together beautifully, unexpectedly.By the time I finished Little Gods I championed the characters Levkoff created I knew them, understood their motives I was reluctant to let them go Fortunately, I can continue to follow these boys in his Bow of Heaven Trilogy
