You're still in shock as the Russian ambassador hands you an incredible document claiming responsibility for the destruction and giving you twenty days to prepare your country for annexation by Russia. To reject the ultimatum is to return American society to Stone Age savagery in the blink of an eye, he explains, for Russia has perfected a mental weapon that defeats all conventional and nuclear arms in mere seconds. The Las Vegas example was accomplished with just one ordinary Russian agent. There are many others, already in position. Your own scientists deny such a thing is possible. You have no defense, nor can you divulge the ultimatum to a single soul in Congress for fear of launching war and triggering Armageddon, just as the smiling ambassador predicts. What do you do? Why, you play poker—with a hand holding nothing higher than deuces and treys. The ace you must draw, and quickly, is a man with a power of his own, name and location unknown. He could be anywhere in the world. He may no longer exist! And even if he does, you’re grasping at straws. But it’s the only game in town....

No Place for Gods Reviews
2.5 starsWhat a GUY book -- in the most stereotypical way possible. :PLiked: * underlying premise;* ending (mostly);* some of the main characters.Disliked:* too many characters running around, with names far too similar to other characters, and back-stories but no actual characterization;* too many things happening at once to keep track of;* too many things going boom;* romance can be sweet, but I was never sold on this one as anything other than the (male) author's adolescent fantasy-fulfillment.And if you are going to try to sell me psychic powers (of multiple flavors) as science, you need to do a WAY better job.
Overall I thought the book was Ok.I had read the third book in the series (Fire Owl)first so I had to go back and read the First one. The first half of the book was agonizingly slow. There were too many groups of characters sidetracking the main plot of the story. The second half was a lot faster and filled with some action, but not very believable. The end was very confusing with scenes switching back and forth from group to group making what could have been a really good story, confusing and flat.
