Offering deeper insights into the critically acclaimed God of War® franchise, this novel returns us to the dark world of ancient Greek mythology explored in the heart-pounding action of God of War I, the bestselling video game. A brutal warrior, Kratos is a slave to the gods of Olympus. Plagued by the nightmares of his past and yearning for freedom, the Ghost of Sparta would do anything to be free of his debt to the gods. He is on the verge of losing all hope when the gods give him one last task to end his servitude.
He must destroy Ares, the god of war.
But what chance does a mere mortal have against a god? Armed with the deadly chained Blades of Chaos, guided by the goddess Athena, and driven by his own insatiable thirst for vengeance, Kratos seeks the only relic powerful enough to slay Ares . . . a quest that will take him deep into the mysterious temple borne by the Titan Cronos!
From the black depths of Hades to the war-torn city of Athens to the lost desert beyond, God of War sheds a brutal new light on the bestselling video game and on the legend of Kratos.
I love it
I have all of the ps2 games and ps4 i will love the books to
Because I am a big fan of it
4/10 for the normal reader
If you are a fan you may enjoy it, but the way of writing is so boring
They were simply trying to explain the many many many fighting scenes in writing
I expected deeper ideas on Kratos personality & character
But the whole story was about describing the video game scenes & gameplay....
I really forced my self to complete it
This book is a movie.. you should probably understand Greek Mythology before reading this book or at least played the game. It's the game scenes x3. A lot of what didn't show happen in the book, especially Athena's works behind the scenes along with Zeus. Starting the GOW 2 book now :)
