An epic quest and trials, shrouded in mystery and jampacked with action. Kit, a special young girl, unwanted and resented for being different, answers the call of a God by trying to join the ranks of his warrior priests. She learns to fight and use magic, alongside other acolytes, and gets ready for a destiny you just know will be be special. Because she stands out among the others, through personality and strength alike. But what will be her role? You just have to wonder. That mystery however, is set aside in favour of an even more compelling one, when Kit uncovers a sinister plot to eradicate the wolves from the kingdom. And the action intensifies when our young priest follows the trail to its grizzly conclusion. An interesting premise and a nicely sketched world-building, just enough to get an idea of things and hinting at much more to come. I found both magic and religion intriguing, though I hope I'll get to know more about those in the next instalments. And don't even get me started on the little Runt! He was the highlight of the tale for me and literally stole the show! Can I have him for myself please?!!!! The only thing I'll grumble a bit about is Kit's personality which, despite being off to a good start, became a tad erratic at times. By the end of this book however, I ended up rooting for the cocky yet somehow still innocent troublemaker she had become. All in all, Call of Titan is an intriguing, fast paced and enjoyable, mysterious adventure that managed to make me not only root for a young misfit and her little Runt, but also jump straight into the sequel.

    An rpg feeling adventure Call of Titan gave me the impression that it was written with an MMO or D&D style of quest system built around it. As a fan of both of those things I quite enjoyed the nod to how these systems always throw random items at a character after they do something 'heroic' and how a random pair of boots just happens to be the right size for a character, or the weapon is the type they always use.

The world itself is interesting and while includes some classic fantasy monsters (yay, dire rats are back!) The main races are a far step away from that and I enjoyed the fresh feel of the fantasy setting, it's gods and people. While there are still many familiar names, and obvious borrowings from Native American cultures, it was done well and without being too on the nose. I did feel the story jumped around a bit too quickly, and that this would have benifited from being a much longer book, especially when it came to Kit's training at the temple.

    This is a coming-of-age narrative. The premise of the worldbuilding is quite interesting, with an entrapped god that loyal priests hope to free one day. I wanted to hear more about that lore, though sadly the religion wasn’t as well-developed as I would have liked. The story really focused on Kit, a girl who is dropped off at a temple of this god to become a priest.

The lighthearted, low-stakes adventure-fantasy-training montage sometimes shown through the issues mentioned above, and when I could get lost in that, I found myself quite enjoying some individual scenes. Unfortunately, they were so episodic, and didn’t really tie into any kind of broader overarching character or theme. The troubles with writing style referenced above also made it difficult to enjoy even those sequences. This book particularly suffered from inconsistency in characterization. It seems like it ought to follow Kit’s growth as a character, but she doesn’t grow in any kind of clear way over time. Sometimes she seems sarcastic and sassy, other times she is sweet and obliging, and at the very end she is accused of being manipulative, which we’ve never seen on the page. We are told that Kit is a special girl, destined for something unique (we don’t find out what), but we don’t see this in action.

    “Sweet Titan! What am I going to do with her?” It’s the question that finally erupts, but it’s echoed by more than this one person about Kit. Kit is an outcast in her childhood, even called an abomination or cursed by most of those in her community. She’s a mere child, yet scorned, because for many she’s a painful reminder of those that come in the night and take and destroy and she’s different from them.

What am I going to do with her?” It’s the question that finally erupts, but it’s echoed by more than this one person about Kit. Kit is an outcast in her childhood, even called an abomination or cursed by most of those in her community. She’s a mere child, yet scorned, because for many she’s a painful reminder of those that come in the night and take and destroy and she’s different from them. It’s the classic example of fearing what one doesn’t understand, so they choose this regrettable path. Yet even so Kit manages to be a protector in such an environment, not hesitating to take on any opponent to keep others safe and dole out justice to its inevitable conclusion if necessary. However, she’s the healer too, emptying herself to bind the wounds of another. For Kit, it’s not only the person she’s known forever in her small number of years. It’s the child in the street that’s about to breath his last, the wolf whose howl is moments from being silenced, and the stranger turned friend who Kit cannot bear to watch die before her. Even Titan, one of the very gods who called her, is in wonder of this one as he asks her, “You would offer your life to save a stranger, a man you only met hours ago?” There’s no guessing the answer from Kit, because she sees beyond her years. She understands the value of all life, not just those that are in her small world. She learned early on to expand past her world and to touch it in a breathtaking, life-giving way, one person at a time. What are we going to do with Kit? Enjoy journeying with her. Although others absolutely have reason to fear her. The gods have chosen their champion well.

Her true adventure begins. The book has training, adventure, diversity, Gods, mythology, mystery, fighting, magic, loyalty, attitude. Sometime Kit acts much older than her years with her witty responses that get her into trouble and the way she deals with adults, other times she acts her age, so to me that is a bit of a confusing character. Whether we will find if this is part of her abilities bestowed on her by Titan since she was a young child I do not know. Otherwise, it is a likeable coming of age story, and I'm looking forward to reading the next book.

    Whilst Call of Titan is primarily a coming-of-age epic tale with much of the story based around an ‘academy’ style setting, I began to get the feeling more was happening below the surface. In fact, by the end I almost felt like I was playing a video game. There were many elements that reminded of my fondness for open world RPGs. Especially the myriad quests (main and side) the character picks up from characters (dare I say NPCs?).

In fact, by the end I almost felt like I was playing a video game. There were many elements that reminded of my fondness for open world RPGs. Especially the myriad quests (main and side) the character picks up from characters (dare I say NPCs?). It felt like the author was poking fun at typical gaming tropes such as the list of tasks on Captain Harding’s notice board, or a standard fetch/shopping-quest for ingredients as part of Kit’s ‘blooding’ trials. Not to mention other elements such as stamina potions and creatures called dock spiders and dire rats, which make me just want to hack and slash then loot their shrivelling corpses! Anyway, I found all of this rather enjoyable, but I suppose I should mention the story, too. The world building is done well and hints at a larger well thought out world, with darker histories of slavery and oppression lurking in the background. There is plenty of action, but I particularly enjoyed the elements of mystery and intrigue concerning the wolves and other strange happenings. Kit, the main character starts off quite naive, but gradually builds up a cocky and confident attitude. Sometimes she can seem very innocent, but is not afraid to get her hands bloody (aka go on a killing spree). The book was written in clean prose and was well edited. I think the series is already complete, and I certainly look forward to more from this author! https://www.amazon.com/Call-Titan-Fan...

    This is quite an unusual one for me. It has all the elements I love, magic, strife, intrigue and gods. I'm not sure how I feel about the MC, Kit. I went from feelings of sympathy, to mild irritation, to cheering her on. There's so much mystery surrounding Kit, who is she, where did she come from? All we know for certain is that Kit, a human, was taken in by a Barret woman, much to the disgruntlement of the village.

All we know for certain is that Kit, a human, was taken in by a Barret woman, much to the disgruntlement of the village. Kit is a misfit, seen as an abomination, she's desperate to fit in, to be accepted. She gets a kick out of pushing those around her to their limits and does she follow orders? Absolutely not! She does what feels right to her. Her inherent need to help everyone, be they people or animal and her loose mouth, get her some situations that have her on the backfoot. But it seems fate has a different path for her, she is tasked with freeing the god Titan from his prison. This leads her to the priesthood and the academy, where once again, she is ostracised. There are quite a few characters, with more added along the way, some clearly defined that it's obvious who and what they are, and others with a ring of mystery surrounding them, like High Priest Hoarfrost and Captain Harding, I feel both will have a more significant role as the story progresses. Danny and Indie are lovely characters, supportive and genuine. The highlight for me was the introduction of Runt, one can't help falling in love with him from the onset. I enjoyed the additions of the various gods, how they are shaping Kit, feeding her information, helping her. This is an intricate tale, I'm not always sure where it's heading, except the certainty that there is far more to this story than meets the eye. I'm definitely interested to find out the rest!

    I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily. Imagine living in a community who is different from who you are.

Imagine living in a community who is different from who you are. That is Kit, as a human she lives in the Berrat village. Except her mother, everyone is hostile towards her. It doesn’t make it any easier when human slavers, raid their village. But at 9 years old, she shows how brave she can be. When she gets a vison of Titan, she leaves her village to be trained as a warrior-priest of Titan in the Temple of the Fist. As she starts off on the wrong foot with many people, she has the courage to just keep going and show them she is not afraid. The only thing she can’t stop is her mouth, making always misplaced remarks. When she discovers that something is going on in this kingdom, she sets her mind to find out what this is, even if she gets killed in the process. This is a story of a young brave woman that sees the best in everyone, even when they act horrible against her. I can see that this story combines the new world and the old world in Kit. We encounter the Greek goddess Gaia , representing Earth and the Greek god Titan, the god of the waters, must find a balance and work together to find out why the wolves are being targeted. It’s a beautiful mix of fantasy, vison quests and a lot of action. I love the good humor attitude of Kit, and she never backs down from any fight. Can she bring the wolves, humans, Berrat’s together in harmony, or is there a sinister plot going on to eradicate humans from existence? The more Kit is investigating, the more questions are arising. All my favorite elements are in this story, wolves, animals, Gaia, the Elements…. I cannot wait to read more, it is such a brilliant, exhilarating story.

    This book by author Mr Mouchet does a good job of marrying familiar fantasy tropes with fresh new takes. I especially enjoyed the respectful borrowing from Native American culture, and am intrigued by Call of Titan's views on the gods. This had elements of LitRPG which I appreciated. It's a subgenre of fantasy I'm quite new to, but it's one I'm keen to explore and its presence was welcome here. I felt the book could have done with being a touch younger.

This may be something that comes up further in the series due to her nature, but I kept forgetting how young she was at some points in the tale. But I am here for book two!

    Titans Snowballs! This is a wonderful story about a young girl that is put through so much crap yet remains steadfast and wholly good to the core. Kit is a small girl with a big destiny, just my kind of heroine.  Kit seems so young in the beginning, naïve innocent but brave and thirsting for knowledge. I appreciate that Paul let her grow as the book progressed. She seems to grow older with some things while retaining innocence with others.

While when broken down the concept sounds fascinating this book reads more like a first draft. Everything is told to the reader, not much is shown. The conversations, the few that there are, feel uncomfortably awkward. The descriptions aren’t consistent and often feel like an afterthought instead of being intertwined with the narrative itself. Overall, nothing is developed in this book. Characters don’t grow, nothing is understood about the magic of the world, and it is never explained why anyone is worshiping this god. As a lover of fantasy books, I greatly enjoy the variety of magic systems out there. Anything from complex high fantasy to more modernized urban fantasy can win me over. I really have no idea what the magic system is in this book. The main character isn’t shown learning anything. You are told as the reader she learned forms, but not what, and nothing about learning magic. It is never said what she can do, or anyone else at the ‘Fist of Titan’. Somehow Kit can heal. She randomly throws an icy wind once, and her shield kind of just appears as it is convenient. At one point Kit is shown communicating with wolves with ease while earlier in the book (just a few days before this event) they are shown more as creatures without understanding that work on basic instincts. The title makes it sound like the hut in the woods is going to have a huge impact on the story. It is largely glossed over, just as any of the gods in the narrative are. The entire bit of the hut felt like useless filler since it did not add anything to character development or share insight to the universe. The mission just randomly comes to Kit, and feels awkwardly forced. Kit as a character feels like a puppet, a marionette dancing across the pages for the author instead of an actual part of the universe. She has no motivation or self driving force. Kit is a priest of Titan, a god who is for some reason trapped in ice. Despite being trapped in ice, that doesn’t seem to mean much. Kit gets a lot of magical blessings from this god, implying the god isn’t magically limited. However, it is mentioned a few times that Kit and the fellow priests are called to free Titan. I can’t imagine how a god that can bestow magical gifts upon so many, and so ridiculously frequently could not get themselves out of some ice. It is also mentioned they aren’t supposed to ask much for their god or they will be perceived as a prepectulant child. Kit is asking for the gods help all the time, several times in an event even. None of the plot really has anything to do with each other. It feels like a collection of random standalone adventures of Kit, and as if the larger universe was explained somewhere at some point in a different book I hadn’t read, despite it claiming to be the first book. The overall editing is decent, but the structure and formatting of the paragraphs is badly done. Several characters speak sharing the same paragraph often, making the scene flow jarring, that is when they do speak. Overall the author just tells us what was said and discussed without actual conversation. After seeing some conversations, I can see why they skipped over dialogue. The author also randomly chose some bigger words throughout the story that didn’t fit at all with the overall simplistic nature of how everyone speaks and acts. It felt very weird, as if the author was trying to show off their vocabulary instead of sharpening the scene. The author also uses a lot of rape narrative that largely goes unchecked. The city guard threatens to rape Kit and she never bothers to bring that up to the commander. It’s awkwardly thrown in frequently when lesser characters are meant to be made out as bad guys. I don’t know why the author chose to use so much of that, and it makes even less sense that the character, a female, would not acknowledge it at all. Once again, making Kit a puppet dancing along the plot for the author. This story needs a heavy hand to be fixed. There is a lot of useless filler, scenes that don’t make sense, and everything is heavily under developed. For a character that is supposed to be a priest and a hero, she acts like an eight year old and most of the older characters also come across more as children. The random shouting, jarring movements, and laughter where there would not be any in a real life scenario made this book hard to get through. We are told many random things that never come up again, like that there are other races in the book. None of them are described. We know the MC, Kit is at least part human since someone calls her that in a slanderous way, but with very few characters described at all unless it's meant to be insulting, it seems pointless to even mention that other races are there. The only reason I finished it was to see how much worse it could get. When Sharknado has a more concrete plot and storyline that makes sense, you know it’s going to be a doozy. If you enjoy B films, this book will still be hard to get through. After reading the about section, the author admits this concept came from a game book they are developing. I am unsure what to think of that, as a gamer myself, seeing the flatness of the universe and lack of insight into the world is very off putting. Most games immediately get into how their magic and religions work, the scape of the land, and bring about some semblance of emotional attachment to different aspects of the world and characters. Everything in this book was oddly emotionless. I will not be pursuing this series or the author any further.

    Completely took me by surprise! The blurb is intriguing however, this tale is way more than it seems! This spirited MC has been portrayed as a character set on a mission, but it soon becomes apparent that this tale may be more than just that particular goal. I enjoyed watching the growth of this character, knowing there is still much more to be experienced in this series. Book one thoroughly did its job as I happily scurry over to book two! All my reviews are always voluntarily written.

    Came for the magic dire wolves, stayed for the fun world and chill adventures. Some people have said that this story reminds them of an RPG, and I agree. The last half of the book feels like a series of sidequests that are calm but not too slow. It's a good way to establish the world and give Kit a chance to gain experience and allies. I'm sure we'll be getting larger, more dramatic plotlines soon, but I like the lower stakes stuff.

With the academy setting, it gives me strong Song of the Lioness vibes. Anything that can encourage a comparison to Tamora Pierce is great in my book. I do have a hard time getting a grasp on Kit's personality. I can never predict whether she's going to be respectful or sassy, and there often doesn't seem to be a reason why she chooses one over the other. It would help if we got a bit more interiority to her. Sometimes interesting things happen but fall flat because we don't got her reaction or thoughts. (view spoiler)[Like, at one point Kit's mom mentions that she has weird ridges down her back, and she just... doesn't react. (hide spoiler)] I just wish we knew her a bit better and that she would be a bit more consistent. On a similar note, we sometimes just... don't get information? Or it would be added in too late. Who can use magic? Why did Kit change her mind about helping Titan? How does Kit feel about having to turn her back on the religion she grew up in? What kind of futures are in store for acolytes who fail the test? What does being a priest even entail? I wish we could slow down at points so we could 1) learn more about Kit's thoughts and feelings, and 2) establish details more comprehensively. A bit more attention to editing would help that. My last big problem is the cavalier use of threats of sexual assault on Kit. It's just... so common. Rather than making the enemies feel dangerous and hateable, it just comes across as a tasteless attempt at edginess on the author's part. Also, a bit lazy. These people are already a threat. We don't need to make everyone act the same. I know I spent a long time on critiques, but I did like this book. I enjoyed how many non-human races there are, and I'm curious to see how the Titan plotline will play out. The temple is interesting in a morally grey way. I hope we get to see more from Kit's classmates. And Runt is, of course, adorable.

I was initially attracted by the cover and the blurb, and I’m so happy I decided to pick up the book. The main character, Kit, just wants to feel like she belongs after she’s been raised by the Berrat and treated as different for most of her life. Her big chance comes when she is called to become a priest of Titan (one of the gods in this particular universe), and lots of adventure follows from that point. Worldbuilding is one of the most important parts for me in any fantasy book, and Call of Titan checks all the boxes in that regard. We only get to see pieces of the world in this book, but I liked how the story seemed to hint that the actual world is much bigger (and well developed by the author). It was fun to see all the different groups that were introduced in the book. I was also quite intrigued with the magic system and religion that were established in the world of Call of Titan - I hope the author explores them more in subsequent books! While I loved most of the characters in the book, Kit’s character felt inconsistent to me. She’s undoubtedly brave and headstrong, but the maturity level she demonstrates jumps all over the place. Sometimes she seems very old mature, other times she acts like a little kid. I get that it's somewhat normal for young people to do that, but it caused a disconnect for me. Overall, Call of Titan was an engaging and entertaining young adult fantasy tale. I would recommend it to those who enjoy coming of age stories or fantasy reads reminiscent of video games. I look forward to reading the subsequent books in the Priest of Titan series sometime soon! Thank you to the author and Book Sirens for providing me with a complimentary review copy of the book.

    I loved how the author incorporated realism and mythology into the Call of Titan. The Berrat race, that Kit lived with seemed to be a mix of brownies and native americans. There also seemed to be some Norse Mythology also mixed into the story. Kit was a bit snarky and a whole lot of sass. I definitely enjoyed the first book, here's hoping the second one is just as good. I'm interested in reading more about Kit, and Runt her dire wolf friend.

    I love this adventure! I cannot wait to share it with my teens! We love fantasy adventure and I think they will really enjoy this. I particularly love that the main character is a girl who is strong, resourceful, friendly and kind. She sets a great example for young people. I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily. I also have bought a kindle copy. What are you waiting for? 💕 Happy Reading 💕

    A Hut In the Woods was a story of true bravery. A Hut In the Woods leads the reader through quests that demonstrate bravery, and empowerment. This book strongly engages the reader, and the reader will never want to stop reading. A Hut In the Woods is very interesting and personally, I couldn't get enough! I am very excited to read the next book, as I am sure it will be as excellent as this one. A Hut In the Woods was a story of true bravery.

    I liked the story but kit was so manipulative and arrogant that it bordered on disturbing. I am hoping that Titan is going to either be her father or her fiancé. I might read the next book.
