Publisher's Summary

The dead wait for Caelan.

The Goddess of Life has sent Caelan to wake her brother, the Dead God. 

But crossing the reclusive country of Zastrad is even more treacherous when Caelan and his friends aren’t sure they can trust their guide. 

The four friends will be tested by violence, death, political intrigue, and secrets better left in the dark. 

When Caelan finally reaches the fractured godstone, he may have to give up everything to save the family he’s cobbled together.

Wake the Dead is the third book in the six-book Godstone Saga fantasy series and is not a stand-alone. The story contains danger, secrets, bossy gods, stolen kisses, a new king finding his way, a possessive boyfriend, magic, and lots of delicious angst.

Warning: ADDICTIVE and CLIFFHANGER

Jocelynn Drake wrote one of my all time favorites series, Unbreakable bonds, so I was very excited when I came across this series (Godstone) on Audible. I am three books into it and world building is phenomenal, relationship building is great for Eno and Rayne, less so but still good for Caelan and Drayce. However, I'm still flummoxed by why a well known author finds it necessary to end EVERY book in a series with such a dramatic cliffhanger. I would read the entire series anyway; they don't have end so abruptly. It's quite annoying and I feel as if it was done for the sole purpose of selling the next book. Fans don't need that incentive. Maybe even first time readers don't need that incentive in this case. One ended in the middle of a conversation! Another one ended just one paragraph after a very huge secret is revealed. But I will admit, the secret was very unexpected, almost shocking. Loved that aspect.

So I'm rating 5 stars for story and performance, though Kale Williams isn't my favorite narrator, I don't hesitate to listen to his books. However, I gave it a 4 overall for the unnecessary cliffhanger and also because the relationship between Caelan and Drayce doesn't come across as strong or meaningful as it should consider Caelan is the main character. Meanwhile, the relationship between Eno and Rayne is written beautifully, can't be felt in the words of the book and actions of characters. Caelan's feels.... less. All the right words are there but it just doesn't pluck my heart strings the way the bodyguard and advisor's does.

That being said, I would recommend this book to all my MM genre loving friends.

The Saga continues

And so the struggle continues. Will the new King survive having 3 gods fighting him for control? Will this game the gods are playing ever be over? Will he forgive Drace for the 'huge' secret he kept? Bring on the next book so that I can find out!!!

Loving this series but.....

As I said I'm loving the series for the most part. And here's the but...the start of chapter 9 was, well all I'll say is, I shouted out loud "oh come on, really" There have been other little niggles with regards to the usage of powers, I found they only detracted a little from a well written series. I move onto book 4 with great optimism.

Just… Amazing! ❤️

Absolutely loved this series!

I NEED more, NOW 😁

This audio/book seems darker than the previous two books, but certainly doesn’t detract from the storyline or characters.

The world building is amazing and MC’s are brilliant as you’d expect from Jocelynn Drake.

Highly recommend! ❤️🥰


Definitely gets 5🌟 and hopefully won’t have to wait too long for the next instalment as this one is left on a dragon cliffhanger!! Arrrgh!!! 😩

that cliffhanger though!

I adore this series and the voice acting, but WOW things got dark this instalment! this one doesn't have a HFN to tide you over. I'm really glad I have the next book lined up and ready to read. I hope one day this series gets enough love to be adapted into a TV series, it deserves it.
