Publisher's Summary

From the author of The Unrequited comes an unconventional tale of coming of age.

He was an artist. She was his muse.

To everyone in town, Abel Adams was the devil's spawn, a boy who never should have been born. A monster.

To 12-year-old Evie Hart, he was just a boy with golden hair, soft t-shirts and a camera. A boy who loved taking her picture and sneaking her chocolates before dinner. A boy who made her feel special.

Despite her family's warnings, she loved him in secret for six years. They met in empty classrooms and kissed in darkened church closets. Until they couldn't.

Until the time came to choose between love and family, and Evie chose Abel.

Because their love was worth the risk. Their love was the stuff of legend.

But the thing about legends is that they are cautionary tales. They are made of choices and mistakes. And for Abel and Evie, the artist and the muse, those mistakes come in the form of lights, camera, sex.

Epic love!

4.5 stars! I loved Abel and his Pixie ! Their story broke my heart into pieces and I loved how explosive their connection was! I did think that the end was a little drawn out and I would have liked an epilogue to see how this couple were doing in the future.

Savannah Peacewood was perfect as Evie but I thought that Iggy Toma needed a deeper, gruffly voice for Abel.

⭐️⭐️Beautiful⭐️Emotional Journey⭐️⭐️

WOW, this is such a power packed story of the pitfalls of life and the growing pains of two incredible broken souls trying to navigate on their own.
Likewise the narration was perfect!!
So worth the credit, coin and time!!

Like it but....

First, the narration - Savannah is one of my favorite female narrators and she was amazing in this book! She did most of the narration and she was so convincing, bringing out all the right emotions needed for her character.
This is my first Iggy Toma listen and he is good as well, although his talent wasnt really showcased in this book but I wouldnt mind listening to him again!

The story - I like the story overall. It’s unique. Their love wasnt conventional, it was even (borderline) obsessive and might be uncomfortable for some people. BUT..... I was disappointed. I was expecting more than what’s on the blurb, I dont know what exactly what I was expecting but I was expecting something and I got disappointed. I also felt the ending was rushed. Again, I like the story but I felt like something was missing.

Super 5 stars

I write review very seldom, but this book is epic! Performances of these narrators are always great. Part one of the book is poetic, rich. The next is rough, emotional carousel. Than is all mixed, but mostly what is special about this story- it is mature, it shows moral dilemmas, which are real in our lives, it shows things, which we think of, live through- beautiful, hard, ugly and shiny. Big bravo from me. I really hate shallow books, this one is so so deeeeeeeppppp. In case of mistakes, forgive me, I am not english native.

🧚‍♀️ Pixies are Magic 🧚‍♀️

Before I begin my review of the book, I wanted to take a second to express my utter joy at listening to these amazing narrators. They just brought this book to life. Big applause for both of them.

This book was THE BIG BANG for me. I rarely find an author who turns words into a visual image, inside my head, that plays like a movie, but this wordsmith author does it for me. I will one click every book she writes and devour all the words.
Gods and Monsters will be a book that stays inside my heart. Abel, this poor, sad, lonely and hurt boy, who the judgmental people of a small town labeled a monster, stole my heart. Evie, the little girl who swore she would offer chocolate to the monsters that her mother warned her about, made me believe in the human spirit.

I want to scream to the world to read this book. I want to have the right words to express myself so everyone will get to fall into the imagination of Saffron A Kent and met Abel and Evie. This book is the book of legends and Evie said it best when she said that she would tell her daughter a story about a golden-haired boy. People called him the monster but a blue-eyed girl thought he was her god.

I truly cannot recommend this book enough. Buy it! Read it! Listen to the audible and thank me later!
