Summary

Chained to an enemy general. Determined to be free.

After years in seclusion and training, 18-year-old Tylira Nyota is summoned by the High Tazmin to be chained to a fallen enemy general. She is a terrible choice to receive this honor - her magic is useless and she finds it impossible to fit in the world she was born to.

Determined to keep her freedom, Tylira instead joins the legendary race for the fabled Teeth of the Gods. With an angry step-mother chasing her and the handsome general chained to her wrist, Tylira must learn to control her magic - which is turning out to be deadly - before it destroys everything she’s fought to gain.

Teeth of the Gods is Wheel of Time meets Sarah J. Maas in a mind-bending epic fantasy adventure of freedom, magic, love, and a princess’s quest to live life on her own terms.

Unusual Story but worth a try

An unusual story as the main character a spoilt , unwordly girl who leaves a sheletered palace to be spend her life with a chosen fallen general turns her fate on her head as she discovers her gift of magic. With so much twists and Tylira being so wilful and headstrong that she causes trouble everywhere you go there is a lot happening. To start i wasnt aure about this story as this is perhaps a little too teen for me but it didnl grow on me, mostly because of the narrators obvious great talent. Giguere is someone new to me along with the author but i perservered (not too sure if i would have been so keen in ebook format)and about half way through the pace and budding romance , adventure kicks in and fantasy goes a little outside the genre (no spoilers) and the authors talents show a lot more with her depth of writing and suspense. Suffice to say from dubious to a fan i became and even went so far to buy the ebook trilogy as i wanted more.Although not perhaps for everyone i would reccomend stick with it till the end as you might be surprised.
I was gifted this audio and choose to leave an honest review and as such is my own opinion

Not A Character I Want to Read About Again

Eh... The story is okay but there are a few things that bother me.

#1 - The character is stupid and selfish, but thinks she's smarter than everyone. She's always whining, and mooning over some guy she believes is responsible for her mother's death, even though she has other serious stuff she should be worried about instead like people trying to kill her. She's unlikable in a bad way. Unlikable is okay if the rest of the story is super interesting, but in this case it's just annoying.

#2 - Pulled too much from Wheel of Time for comfort. I first noticed it when people started saying "May She Live Forever," but not long after that the entire foundation of the character's power is identical to how people pick apart magic in Wheel of Time all the way down to descriptions of slippery slimy tentacles of power, and blowing up spells and killing people if handling the unweaving clumsily. Women are apparently the only ones that can openly use magic, same as WoT, and the guy this woman is crushing on has some connection to birds. I wouldn't be at all surprised if in future books this blossomed into something like the wolf dream since, again like WoT, certain gifted people can enter a dreamlike world to meet, gain instruction, etc. Nothing in this book feels original.

#3 - Grammar - The constant use of "lightnings" was very annoying. Example: "We needed more lightnings in that fight." At first I thought this was a character quirk because the protagonist isn't very smart, but then other characters talk this way. I've never even heard of lightening used as a count noun outside of children. It appears that the author doesn't know that lightning is a non-count noun, or has never heard of the term "lightning bolt?"

Very annoying main character + unoriginality + strange grammar = not something I'd want to drop a credit on in the future.

Great Fantasy Adventure

I really enjoyed this story of adventure and romance. The plot twists held my interest and I was caught up in the story. Tylira made a lot of rash decisions without considering the consequences of her actions but really matured toward the end. The romance was clean and appropriate for most listeners. This is the first book in the series and it ends with no huge cliffhanger but hints at where the story is going. Looks like a fun series! The narration was excellent and she was able to capture the emotions of the characters.

Wonderful listen!

This was such a wonderful listen! I really enjoyed the writing, and felt like the author took particular care in showing instead of telling. I loved the strong heroine, and watching her grow and figure out how far to push the limits. I really enjoyed the adventure and plan on listening to more by this author.

An Excellent Audio Book

I read or listen to about 30 or 40 books a year and I am not normally one for YA books but I really enjoyed this one. The story was very well developed and moved at good steady pace which kept me excited about the next development or the next twist. The characters have good depth and you can find something about each of them that may mirror your own thoughts, feelings, or beliefs. If you are looking for a great listen, don’t miss this book. Although this book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review, I am anxiously awaiting the next books in the series.

Teeth of the Gods

Overall this was a good story. There are elements of magic, fantasy, danger, suspense, and science fiction. There were points in the story that got a little mired down in the details and moved a little slowly, but I stuck with it, and I'm glad I did. The author has set things up for what could be a very entertaining series.

Exciting, clean romantic fantasy

Wilson describes her books as “Epic YA Science Fiction, Fantasy and Urban Fantasy: unique storylines, kick*** [butt] princesses, world-building to die for and fast-paced plots.” After listening to Teeth of the Gods, I’d definitely agree with her description.

Unfortunately, I also agree with other reviewers who were surprised that the book starts out as a terrific fantasy book then changes to a less terrific science fiction story at the end. I think the problem is not so much the genre switch as the vague descriptions. The author does a great job painting the fantasy world in the reader’s mind. The science fiction world, on the other hand, was not as fully described. However, the rest of the series I assume takes place in the science fiction genre, so I imagine the author will flesh it out better in the next book.

Teeth of the Gods’ heroine is a young princess with the physical characteristics of someone of North African or Indian descent. The story begins in the middle of her attempting to escape The Silken Gardens, where she has been raised with the other daughters of her father’s concubines.

She and her unfriendly sisters aren’t ordinary princesses. They each share a link to The Common, which reminds me of The Force (from Star Wars). Unfortunately for our heroine, her link appears defective. She is also the daughter of the ruler’s least-liked wife, so she’s unpopular.

Because her father rightly believes the princess is immature and foolish, he has selected her to undergo additional instruction in preparation for the life he has chosen for her. This instruction involves the royal custom of tethering a princess to a defeated enemy by a magical rope in order for the princess to gain the enemy’s wisdom during their forced proximity.

Her cold-hearted stepmother is supposed to escort the princess to the binding ceremony. The stepmother believes beating the princess is the best way for her to find her connection to the Common. (Similar to Bruce Banner’s anger allowing him to turn into The Hulk.) This part of the story is rather violent.

Meanwhile, the princess is getting advice from one of her ancestors in the Common (like Disney’s Mulan), but because teenagers always know best, she usually chooses to ignore that advice to everyone’s detriment.

There’s also magic, a quest for an ancient artifact, and a mysterious love interest. One of my favorite romantic quotes from the book is, “It uprooted a longing so deep inside it must have been tangled up in my spine.”

I listened to Teeth of the Gods twice before I wrote this review. Except for the last 30 minutes, I’d give the book 5 stars for an exciting plot, well-developed fantasy world, and clean romance. I actually liked the majority of the book even more on the second listen. However, even listening carefully to the last 30 minutes, I continued to have a difficult time following that part of the story.

Considering the story takes place over a short period of time, the heroine does not grow dramatically as a person, but she does become more self-aware. She realizes she has been selfish and inconsiderate. At first I was a little surprised that her love interest could be interested in someone as selfish as her, but on the second listen, her growth as a person and his grudging respect and admiration of her were more apparent. He sees her rashness as bravery and helps her to think about how her decisions affect others.

Although Teeth of the Gods has a cliffhanger ending, the plot did end in a satisfactory way with some resolution.

The book as a whole was action packed and exciting. I rooted for Tylira to gain control of her hidden abilities and be worthy of the very likable hero’s affections. I plan to listen to the next book in the series.

A note on the narration. Veronica Giguere did a great job differentiating between characters and making the story come alive. I would have preferred a foreign accent considering the characters live in a place very different from America, but that didn’t take away from the story.

I received a complimentary copy of this audio book in exchange for an honest review.
