The Sons of God: Book 1 by Teaspoon Tara

Finn Clemenceau has always been told she's a little devil. One night, she finds out she may have been fathered by one.

Finn asks for trouble, and she always gets it. Having grown up in a circus, she never quite learned classroom etiquette. Unfairly reprimanded for tiny, harmless faux-pas like accidentally killing her teacher, Finn can't wait to be done with school and back on the trapeze. On the one night that Finn isn't looking for trouble, it finds her. In astonishingly quick succession, she's stabbed with a strange knife by an utter stranger, saved by another, witnesses her saviour fighting off a pack of demon-dogs with a sword, and then finds herself dealing with the consequences of drunk driving. It was a long night, and for Finn, it's only the beginning.

    Really good fast moving story. I love Finn, and her encounters with the supernatural are building up nicely. Basically I think it's great. Suggestions, hope you don't mind these, it's only my thoughts obviously so feel free to ignore. In Ch.1 I loved the first part but just felt there were a couple of places where it seemed to be a bit of an information dump. I wondered if we needed to know about Ana's parents at this stage. Also ...

    I've read chapter 1 so far. Really good start to this book, giving us a real sense of her way of life. I like the MC very much. There is also humour here and the narrative bowls along at a good pace. Mr D is instantly interesting and I guess we haven't heard the last of him. I'll read on. Obersvations. Mr D doesn't sound 'normal looking' from your description but rather striking. 'as if willing him teaching the lesson ...

    YARG Hi Tara There is a lot to like about these first three chapters. Finn comes across as a regular high school girl all be it one who is often picked on by some teachers, with a strong group of friends around her. At the disco her seeing the dagger in Oliver's sleeve and then becoming drawn into his world as he battles the strange dog-like creatures outside. Oliver obviously recognizes her as being special and indeed the way Finn ...

    "As if willing him teaching the lesson specifically to him" <-- this seems to have something missing, I'm not sure entirely what you were trying to say. Anyways, I love Mr. D, he seems like such a fantastic character! I love the way you foil Anna and Finn so that one is so outgoing and the other so shy and cautious. I like how there's a twist here, instead of the guy being the lighthearted, don't care player, it's Ana. ...

    Greetings. I just read chapter one, and so far I think this is delightful. I love your characterization of your main characters, and I have a special place in my heart for kids who land themselves in loads of trouble. Your writing is very clean, well put-together. Really the only thing that I would tinker with is I would provide a clue about the narrator's gender sooner, to help lock in an image to work from. It could be as ...

    Hi Tara, just dropping in for that read I promised. First off, I thought the last comment you received on your book was crass, verging on the unnecessarily cruel. This is great writing, really made me smile in places, and Finn as a character is NOT your bulk-standard teen fodder, she's trouble, yes, but funny, perceptive and enderaring too. I liked her a lot (perhaps because her diary of naughtiness mirrored my own at school one day, lol!) Okay, I ...

    YARG 2 review While the first chapter was entertaining enough to make the average reader want to continue reading, I found nothing new that made ME as a reader want to continue. While reading it, I feel as if I was reading yet another clone of yet another teen fiction, many of which have been popping up everywhere. The pattern is very standard, albeit you execute it better than most other teen fiction writers do. The characters, I find, are ...

    YARG Tara, Here are some edits for The Sons of God: Book 1. Overall I liked Finn and am interested to see where you go with it. Below are my thoughts. Take them or leave them but know they are offered in the spirit of making The Sons of God: Book 1 a better story. C1 Someone isn't "anaphylactic." They would have a "life threatening allergy." Also, there's no way that a student would have been able to get to ...

    The beginning is cute with all the "yelled at's". The main character seems like a person I would like to meet in person, if only to catch some of her sense of humor :) Will definitely read more as soon as I have more time.

    Very different idea and an interesting way to start it off.
    I like how you put what time it is that things were going wrong for your MC. It keeps it interesting in the easy pace.
    It seems to develop very well.
    Good work with this new and interesting story plot.
    I think this needs a new cover though.
    Good job!

    Hi Tara, just picked this up and couldn't put it down.

    A great MC and a really good pace to the story. Looking forward to seeing how the characters and story develops. Will add to Bookshelf when I'm back on a Pc that will let me!

    Excellent stuff.

    I thought the beginning was very funny - the entries about being in outer space etc. Like the tone and the voice, and it's very readable. Made me smile and piqued my curiosity before the end of page one. :)

    I'm really enjoying this. The characterization is strong, your main character likeable and the humor much to my liking. You also transition to the supernatural nicely, with great contrast to the normal world.
    Nicely done!

    CHIRG review The Sons of God - this book has a very engaging tone and a good pace. The story isn't rushed. Chapter 1 The dialogue between Finn and her peers is believable and youngsters will be able to relate to them. Like the mysterious Mr D character. One typo I noticed "I shook my head an (and?) laughed" Chapter 2 Finn is a very likeable character who doesn't follow the crowd. I found it a little unclear as to ...
