To Cage A God (These Monstrous Gods #1) by Elizabeth May - A Review

 Hello everyone & Happy Friday!!

Today I am coming to you with a book review. 

To Cage a God by Elizabeth May is the 1st book of an epic new, Imperial Russia-inspired dark fantasy duology of gods, politics, and deadly magical powers. 

This sentence alone had me very intrigued to read it. I really enjoyed reading To Cage A God. The premise is really interesting and I really liked the world building and the Imperial - inspired setting. Also the relationship dynamics between the two sisters was done really well. 

If you like the second chance & enemies to lovers tropes, you should read this book. There is also great representation in the book as the characters deal with trauma and loss.

The only problem that I had was with the pacing as I found it little slow for my tastes. The last chapters of the book though, were a real page turner and the ending was very satisfying, however I would like to know how the story continues in the next book.

Rating: 4 Stars

About the book:

As a child, Galina’s village was decimated in a battle between the alurea, a ruling class possessed by gods imprisoned in human bodies. A stranger offers her shelter—and justice against the empress who slaughtered her family. The bargain is Galina will become a vessel for a deity of her own. And when the time comes, she will be a weapon used to take control of the throne.

Twenty years later, the woman who invoked Galina’s god is dead, and she’s on the run with her foster sister, Sera. Both women are fugitives struggling to adapt to the deities within their bodies and forced to finally attempt the mission they were groomed infiltrate the palace and overthrow the cruel empress to end the brutal reign of alurea.

But their duty grows complicated when Sera’s ruthless former partner catches up with her, and Galina finds herself on the verge of losing her heart to an enemy princess. As secrets and lies come to light, both women will discover what they’re willing to do for their people—and how far they’ll go to occupy a blood-soaked throne.
