Hello there! This month we are discussing FOOD OF THE GODS by Cassandra Khaw. From the publisher: "It’s not unusual to work two jobs in this day and age, but sorcerer and former triad soldier Rupert Wong’s life is more complicated than most. By day, he makes human hors d’oeuvres for a dynasty of ghouls; by night, he pushes pencils for the Ten Chinese Hells. Of course, it never seems to be enough to buy him a new car—or his restless, flesh-eating-ghost girlfriend passage from the reincarnation cycle—until opportunity comes smashing through his window. "In Kuala Lumpur, where deities from a handful of major faiths tip-toe around each other and damned souls number in the millions, it’s important to tread carefully. Now the Dragon King of the South wants to throw Rupert right in it. The ocean god’s daughter and her once-mortal husband have been murdered, leaving a single clue: bloodied feathers from the Greek furies. It’s a clue that could start a war between pantheons, and Rupert’s stuck in the middle. Success promises wealth, power and freedom, and failure... doesn’t." (BTW if you see this book listed as "volume 4", don't worry: it's part of a series of similarly-themed but otherwise unrelated books published by Abbadon.) Durham County Library patrons can place a hold on the book at www.durhamcountylibrary.org or by calling[masked], but everyone is welcome! It can also be found at UNC and Duke.
