God of War - The Official Novelization
About this deal
As Atreus tries to focus on shooting down the deer and not let his emotions cloud his mind, Kratos will become impatient and urges Atreus by saying "Take the shot, boy. Now!" Also Kratos's eyes are described as grey and not gold, which doesn't affect anything on a thematic level but it bothers me. Especially since Fallen God's first issue has just been released and yep...those are VERY gold eyes.
When he had almost given up on life, a little girl ‘Emma’ finds him and offers him a sweet. She prays, as long as he ate this sweet candy, his life would get sweeter and sweeter with each passing moment.Obviously, the book tells the same story as in the game. Kratos and Atreus journey forth from their home to scatter Faye’s (the wife of Kratos and the mother of Atreus) ashes from the highest mountaintop in all the realms. The story mixes Greek and Norse mythology. While it was fun to begin with, I ended up disliking it towards the end. Think of it this way - you have a song you've grown up with and you know the words and tune of it. Then someone decides to record the song, but while most of the words are the same, they change some, and rearrange the rest, and to top it off, they change the music entirely. It felt like that. While at first I enjoyed hearing about these characters famous in Greek and Norse mythology, the changes to their storylines didn't gel with me. His life turns upside down and he finds himself under the patronage of a powerful and mysterious person who trains him vigorously and turns him into a fighter no one has seen before.
To make sure the girl’s life is ruined, her grandfather announces to marry her to a suitable suitor. This suitor is actually going to be the one who makes sure her dislodging from the family’s assets and money. The uncles and grandfather conspire and select an allegedly useless, wandering, and mentally ill husband for her.The little man slid from his hiding place, stopping beside Atreus. "Ya see what my touch brung!" Brok boasted with a broad smile.
