Fast-paced and action-packed. Truly thought-provoking fantasy for young adults is often harder to find. But Helena Coggan's latest novel, The Orphanage of Gods, may have uncovered the magic formula. Featuring strong female leads, and firmly ditching the 'love will conquer all' trope, The Orphanage of Gods presents women as sidekicks-turned heroes, damsels-turned-warriors, and children-turned-leaders'
A twisting story full of surprises and rich, complex characters. Helena has created a beautifully written world of injustice, bravery and friendship.
Helena Coggan's lyrical story of gods and humans kept me riveted to the page. The plot pulses with action and the characters are beautifully complex. This is a book that sparks with adrenaline and longing, all the way to the final page
A phenomenal achievement . . . assured, frightening, action-packed
