Call of Titan by Paul Mouchet is the first book in a new young adult fantasy series and at its heart a coming-of-age tale. 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 appreciate the opportunity to read and review Call of Titan immensely.
