    1. This book is even better than the first. It has action, comedy and relationship between the characters. It has a battle with the kids and the Gods from all different kinds of religions. I really hope they make a film out of this series.

    2. The world had mostly ended, and now six avatars of various pantheons of gods (and one Polynesian interloper) are charged with killing each other in a winner-take-all contest. Unfortunately for the gods, the avatars have turned out more human than expected, and although some of them embrace the mission others hold back.Gus was possessed by the Polynesian god of war Oro and doesn't have the benefit of a trainer, but Oro knows how to handle himself. Gus is still one of my favorites. He's not integr [...]

    3. Después de como 6 años de querer leer este libro y no conseguirlo por ninguna parte, por fin logre conseguir una copia. Estuve algo preocupada cuando lo comencé por que pensé que tal vez ya había crecido mucho en mis gustos y mi critica para que me gustara este libro, pero aunque tardo en empezar en algún momento ya no pude detenerme. Cada cabo suelto de el libro anterior encuentra su explicación en este libro. Descubrimos personajes nuevos y me fascina la interacción de los panteones co [...]

    4. When I first started the book, I was worried that Kali's character would change because she had been given her memories as a goddess. Happily, I was completely wrong.Kali's goddess memories meshed nicely with her human personality. Her character didn't change, and I liked her relationship with Shiva much better than Gus's relationship with Diana. That aside, the book picks up shortly after the first one ends. It quickly gains speed, and doesn't slow down, even at the very end. There's never a lu [...]

    5. While I wasn't too keen on the first volume of this series, I was interested enough in the whole god pantheon vs. god pantheon to continue into the second book, and I'm glad I did. The first book was nothing but world building and very little actual plot, but the second volume finally kicks things into gear. I was happy that despite each character being an avatar of a god or goddess their personalities remained very true to the characters we were introduced to in the first book- I like the whole [...]

    6. I loved the first one, and really loved this one. The world got so much larger and the cast swelled with the addition of the "twins" and Thor (who was hilarious). I read his series so fast I have a hard time remembering what happened in each book (which to me is always a good sign of a great series).

    7. I thought this book was so great that after reading it I reread it. There is a new character and love interest for Tigre, they find out more and more about what they are expected to do, there are great fights, and a scene I reread six times because it was so great.

    8. the second book in the Avatars series and just as good as the first. This one doesn't end in the same type of cliffhanger as the other did, but it did set up very well for the third book. This one really starts the fights between the avatars and really thickens the plot soup.

    9. It was an amazing book. Despite what i thought would make a horrible set of upcoming books from the last several pages of the preveious one, i liked it a lot. IT WOULD have gotten a 5 if not for the absolutely horrible cliffhanger at the end.

    10. This was one of those sequels where you can tell it was all planned out ahead of time. The new characters mesh perfectly into the story and the action and adventure is just as exciting and (even better) not a total rehash of the plot of the first book! An excellent series!

    11. The continuation of "This is how the world ends" and as new avatars arrive so do more conflicts, romances, and betrayals as they fight for the gods.

    12. Excellent continuation of the series. I enjoyed the character/world development; however, I think the author should have spent more time on Thor.Definitely planning to read the next one.

    13. A great sequel to a great book. It was extremely good once again and I'm glad the author didn't fail to amaze me. That's all I have to say except go TigrexKali <3

    14. Exciting follow-up to So This is How it Ends with additional characters and many action-packed battle scenes between the avatars. I'm looking forward to reading the conclusion of the trilogy.

    15. For some reason I liked the characters a lot more in the second book than the first. Both are wonderful reads though!
