If I were stuck on a secluded island I think I would be just fine…as long as I had some of my favorite John Scalzi and Stephen King books. Will The God Engines be one of these new favorites? I don’t know, but we’ll see. I got this for my nook, giving me the perfect read to try and test my new gadget. From all descriptions that I have seen, most describe this story as dark, so it will be interesting to see how well it turns out since most of what I have read by John Scalzi is anything but dark.
