“The basic construct of Challenges of the Gods was uniquely exciting to me as a reader. (…) I thoroughly enjoyed this fresh and exciting read and can highly recommend it to all lovers of fantasy and science fiction.5-star Readers Favorite Review
Warning: Kirkus Reviews are a bit spoilerish:
“A comedic sci-fi novel focuses on one man’s undercover quest to destroy Earth. (…) He [the main character] is altogether likable and self-effacing despite the fact that he has been sent to terminate everyone around him. Throughout it all, readers are kept in suspense about how such a struggle will end.”Kirkus Reviews
“Too many books in the genre simply seek to overwhelm with increasingly far-fetched concepts and outlandish characters, but when Mike finds himself torn between his mission and his burgeoning relationship with Jane, Hofsetz provides us with intelligent musings, reflections, and more than a little soul searching too.”BookViral
“Now and then a reader will come across that one book that blows them away, it is a somewhat generic term, but that is what Challenges of the Gods did to me… it blew me away and ever since completing it I have been thinking of its intricate and detailed story and how I need to re-read it!”Aimee Ann, The Red Headed Book Lover
“Challenges Of The Gods by C. Hofsetz is a new sci-fi fantasy novel with a very unique plot based a really good concept. I liked this book a lot because it differs from most of the new sci-fi novels as it had depth, good characterization and good world-building and the best part was the concept itself – it was both fresh and unique.”The Reading Bud – Heena Rathore P.
“Mike, the lead character, assigned randomly by the gods to correct their mistake, is a perfectly funny & equally sarcastic guy all girls dream for. Whenever he makes an entry, he lit up the pages of the novel & cracks me up. When his love betrays him in the story, I am sure every girl reading this book will wish if only once she could be part of the story to meet him.”Booxoul – Shubhra Mukherjee
“The principal characters had a well-created personality and were interconnected. The pace of the story was steady and kept the reader intrigued. The Gods being at play added a delightful nature to the storyline and I believe this book would suit most science fiction fans and people who like to read about fantasy.”Jeyran Main
“The plot, characters and development were all very realistic and I felt that I could have been caught up in the predicaments of a number of the protagonists. A very intriguing and captivating story from the beginning, mysteries interwoven, unraveling bit by bit, making it a real page turner.”Meenaz Lodhi
