Chad has lived his life below the rocks, feeding off the life force of slaves like Dae, his personal server. But Chad has done the unthinkable, he's fallen in love with her. Determined to stop his people's dependance on servers, and be equal with the woman he loves, Chad travels to the world above, where he meets Salana, a girl who is treated like royalty in a world that is ruled by war.
Blessed of the Gods tells several stories woven together, and they are done wonderfully. This included the cultures of the various characters being woven together and interlinked, sometimes in ways that I never actually saw coming.
I will admit that I found it difficult to get into the book at first, though I think that was partly to do with my phone not showing the pdf well at first (not too sure what was going on there) but once I did I found that the story was enjoyable and well woven.
When I was reading Chad's story I found myself enjoying it and wondering how Salana was getting on, whereas while the focus was on Salana I found myself wondering how Chad was going on. Then I found myself wondering for a big part of the book about Dae in general.
I'm finding myself not seeming to say very much about Blessed of the Gods and I don't really understand why! It was definitely an enjoyable read and easy going while being interesting and all happening in a well built world!

Praise “Aumelan is much more than a love story. Ms. Wilson has crafted a masterpiece in which she closely examines the human condition: How far will we go as a society to survive? How far will we go as individuals for compassion? The literary genus is covertly wrapped in a delicious genre romance where readers are submerged in the lives of her characters and the fantastic sci-fi backdrop of their imperfect world. Make no mistake, Aumelan may easily become a classic to transcend time. A definite recommended read!” ~ J.D. Brown, author of Dark Heirloom series.
