Cloudia and Rex
Ulises Farinas ,
Published November 28th 2017
BLURB: A lushly rendered supernatural fantasy that follows two girls and their mother who find themselves in the middle of a vast, supernatural exodus. On their journey Cloudia is bestowed the powers of hundreds of different gods, but even those don't help her come to terms with the death of her father.
My rating: 1 of 5 stars
A mother and two daughters are moving after the father death, amidst the odiosities of the older daughter who is about to turn thirteen, when falls over the family, literally from heaven, a pantheon of gods that are fleeing from their own destruction.
First thought: what a mess!
Mix a bunch of all-you-can-think mythological mumbo-jumbo add senseless plot dump over one annoying unbereable adolescent and shake.
The authors apparently were trying for some significance about death and rebirth, and I been way generous and imaginative here. Because Cloudia is the class of child that made you thank for being childless, ug, what a obnoxious girl. The bunch or gods are over the place and you couldn't understand what this is about the destructors.
Maybe next time better use Rex. I like the wooly rhino.
