Summary

Not all that is right comes from the gods. Sometimes, they demand much that is wrong. Liana and her twin are an anomaly at the heart of a kingdom bound by unyielding tradition. The crown princess is the first female marked as Herkun's heir, and her existence has unfortunate consequences. When her uncle leads a coup with the intent to kill her, Liana and her twin brother are spirited away to a place where not even the stars are the same. Lost and alone, with only her father's pact with a foreign goddess to guide her, Liana must decide whom she can trust. Time is running short, and the will of the gods is all. Mother of Creation is an epic fantasy that tells the story of the coming of age of a royal heir, a brother's quest to save his sister, the machinations of the son of a god, a blind oracle's dreams, and the struggles of an ordinary soldier.

.An exciting and amazing ride !

Every once in a while, a book comes along that shatters your expectations. Case in instance is a book so explosive and intense, deeply enthralling and equally disturbing. A book you'll proudly hold dear despite the bloodlust woven into its very essence. A book called Mother of Creation , written by Amanda J. McGee and beautifully narrated by Michelle Marie and loved by many bookworms everywhere. Well I finally joined the party, because this book? Flawless.The rhythm had some off-beats here and there. Personally, I associated more because of this. Brilliance. Sheer, pure brilliance. This is what this book is. Everything I wanted and everything I didn't know I wanted. It's a whirlwind of emotions. I will be looking forward to more from both McGee and Marie. Marie narrated exceptionally well she spun her web and I was caught.I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.As always this is my honest opinion

It was OK

Any additional comments?

This book was not what I expected. It has different POV, which I really like because I like to know what the other characters are thinking and why they behave the way they do. There is suspense but I found it slow at the same time. I really liked Liana, she did moan a bit however she did do something about it, she didn't wait for others to do it for her. I found her to be really mature for a 16 year old.

warning this is for 18+ due to the sexual content. It is not graphic but one/two scenes are not behind closed doors either. The violence is mild but this is to be expected due to the plot.

Not my cup of tea....

I really tried to like this book. I really did. The basic story line was ok for me: sons/daughters of one god fighting to keep their place against the son of another god.

But....For me, the story was a bit too twisted for me to be able to enjoy. I felt that many of the things that happened in this book were put there purely for a shock factor, but they diminished the story overall in my opinion.

I also didn't care for the huge gaps in gender equality. I understand this is a fantasy that is placed in another world; however, it felt overdone.

Honestly this isn't a book/series that I really wish to continue. The story breaks on a cliffhanger, but I have no desire to continue on with the story.

This review copy audiobook was provided by the author/narrator/publisher free of charge.

unique and wonderfull

This fantasy book had a medieval and tribal feel to me, reminding me a little of Robert Jordans the wheel of time series. The characters are so alive you cant help but feel with them and for them.
This wonderful book is one of those story's that you start and then cant put down. I listened to it all now please tell me book 2 is coming out soon?
I was giving this book for free in exchange for an unbiased review, and honestly I would have written one anyway had I bought it. This is one of those books where you just want to tell your friends to read it or to just tell them the story. Thank you so much Amanda, please keep adding to this saga.

Interesting story but very dark.

Even though this story is very entertaining, most of it is dark and depressing. Every character is suffering and only some have a spark of hope.

The story has many characters and narrator was able to give them their own unique voice. It was very easy to follow and entertaining to listen.

Unique story

If you could sum up Mother of Creation in three words, what would they be?

World needs Feminism

What other book might you compare Mother of Creation to and why?

I feel a comparison to the Wheel series in this it makes me want to pull it out and reread.

What about Michelle Marie’s performance did you like?

Like all good narrators her voice became part of the book and was a fantastic delivery system It was a great fit.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

It was in fact I stayed up late to finish it rather than finish in the morning.

Wonderfully Unique!!!

First I would like to say I was given this audio book for free in exchange for my true and honest opinion. Michelle Marie has done a wonderful job narrating Amanda J. McGee's book Mother of Creation. I just couldn't stop listening. With a touch of tribal and medieval this fantasy will keep you wanting more.

Equality forged through blood...

WARNING TRIGGER ALERT, (Rape, incest)
Most of the story you have to get over the inequality between male and female characters, yes most still exists today but I try to make it not in my day to day life. if you like women who prove themselves equal or better then men through pain and torment, and hard work, then this will be your story. Set in a day of sword and shield, the battle rages on..
