Review: Unclean Spirits by Chuck Wendig

About the book


Five years ago, Cason Cole walked away from his wife and son and became a chew toy to an actual god. Now, as the being he both loves and hates lies dying at his feet, the explosion still ringing in his ears, Cason is finally free.

For the past thirty years, gods and monsters have walked among us, making us their pawns and playthings. But mortals aren’t the poor things they were in aeons past. It’s time for payback.


Someone has stolen Coyote’s penis. His quest to retrieve it—his latest victim, Richard Greene, in tow—will drag him into a terrifying conspiracy. Saving the world is going to take everything in his bag of tricks—and he’s suffering from the ultimate performance anxiety.

My thoughts

Gods, monsters, angels, demons. It’s a full gamut of creatures. And can I say, many of them are gross! And there were some explosions I was pretty pleased about. Lots of action in this god hunting story. And you get a freebie novella at the end that operates inside the same world (including one character from the previous story).

Poor Cason, he discovers humans are not alone in this world in the worst way possible, he is then roped into having to fix the mess his life has become. Cason is not exactly a likable character but you certainly root for him to restore his life after the gods snatch it away from him.  Unclean Spirits also includes a cast of extras that are just as interesting and entertaining. I loved Tundu the cab driver. The fighting is tough, violent, gruesome and gross. Chuck Wendig tells a great story with descriptive prose that makes it hard to get the imagery out of your head. If you like a story about gods who are basically a bunch of assholes then this book is for you!
