Availability: Ready to download

After having been trapped in his office for ten thousand years Lacerto, the god of small to medium-sized lizards, escapes to seek revenge. They say when you go looking for revenge, dig two graves. If you're a god, make sure one of them is the size of Mount Olympus. They say when you go looking for revenge, dig two graves.

If you're a god, make sure one of them is the size of Mount Olympus. To keep himself out of that grave, Lacerto will have to win and wield a divine weapon that takes the form of a brutally sarcastic salamander, take on the entire pantheon of gods, and control a human lawyer to whom he accidentally assigned god-like power when she became his pope. But at least there will be alcohol. And snark. "In the wry spirit of James Morrow and Terry Pratchett, Max Cantrell's A Tale of Gods, Mortals, and Jell-O Shooters is a high-minded, hilarious spin on power both mortal and divine." -Joshua Corin, Author of Nuclear Winter Wonderland, Cost of Life, and Marvel's Deadpool: Too Soon

    A Tale of Gods, Mortals, and Jell-O Shooters By: Maxwell Cantrell Narrated by: Christopher J Mayer This is an audible book I requested and the review is voluntary. I thought this book was clever, witty, and a bit childish (and I laughed at those parts the most), and I enjoyed it! It had fun parts, sad parts, silly and emotional parts. A lesser god is trapped and then when he gets, by accident, a follower he is released from his captivity. He wants revenge. He lets this emotion take over.

There are some great characters in here and weird other gods. The strange situations he gets himself in, and his only friend, doesn't seem to bother him. The end is excellent. Really odd book but I liked it and can't tell you why! The narrator was great! He really was funny!

    I just finished reading A Tale Of Gods, Mortals and Jell-O Shooters by Maxwell Cantrell. Max is a teenager and the son of New York Times bestselling author, Rebecca Cantrell. I think the only other work I’ve read from an author this young is Anne Frank, but this book impressed me. The book is about Lacerto, the god of small to medium-sized lizards, who seeks revenge on who trapped him in his office for ten thousand years. It moves at break-neck speed, much like a typical teenage mind. Still tryi I just finished reading A Tale Of Gods, Mortals and Jell-O Shooters by Maxwell Cantrell.

The book is about Lacerto, the god of small to medium-sized lizards, who seeks revenge on who trapped him in his office for ten thousand years. It moves at break-neck speed, much like a typical teenage mind. Still trying to fathom how he kept narrative and dialogue coherent with the amount of action that was going on. There were a couple of pages this old brain got lost and had to backtrack to find out who was who in the conversation or got bored that something was taking too long to come to fruition, but overall, it’s a fantastic debut book by a promising young author. I hope we will be hearing from this remarkable young man again.

    I found this book pretty enjoyable! Lacerto, the god of small-medium size lizards, has been trapped in his office for ten thousand years. While trapped, he should have been coming up with a bullet proof plan for revenge, but instead once he’s released he does it by ear. His journey to finding who imprisoned him was hilarious, alcohol filled, and brutal. The characters were likable, fun, and unique and I especially loved Lacerto’s sidekick, the salamander sword, who was filled with snark and fear I found this book pretty enjoyable!

This book was filled with lots of humor, violence, and a lot of cursing, but I could never tell what was going to happen next because it was so crazy. Christopher did a great job with this narration! I felt like he really breathed life into this story with his enthusiasm and character voices. *I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

    While at times this book was entertaining, unfortunately I found that it was often just silly and I could not understand the target audience. The words and phrases used were often very young sounding but the theme of the book was aimed for an adult audience. Christopher James Mayer did a reasonable job with the narration but ultimately I didn't find this enjoyable to listen to. I received this audiobook at no-cost from Audiobookworm Promotions. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opin While at times this book was entertaining, unfortunately I found that it was often just silly and I could not understand the target audience.

    This book was silly. Interestingly okay silly. The main character was a little slow (maybe a lot), the sidekick/weapon was sarcastic in a corny way and there was enough descriptive violence in the book that I didn't just put it down out of annoyance. I wasn't really annoyed at all. Taken aback by a few of the things that were said in a "wth was the state of mind of the writer while he was writing this" kind of way. This is just a book that needs to be experienced instead of described. This book was silly. Interestingly okay silly.

    My first idea when I started this story was that Christopher Moore had sex with Terry Pratchett while Douglas Adams cheered on. Hilarious, raunchy, violent and super duper awesome. I highly recommend the audiobook as the voice artist elevates the ballsy story with vocal flourishes, technical prowess and enlivens each character with mastery. I felt like a happy, drunken demi-god when I was finished with this book. Cheers.

    This book was recommended to me and I am glad they did. It is a creative, often funny story with parodies that will make you smile. The characters interact in a humorous way and you never know what they are going to say or do next. Give this a read... you'll enjoy it. This is his debut novel and I can't wait to see what he comes up with next. I see a very bright future ahead for Max! This book was recommended to me and I am glad they did.
