Cover of The Prey of Gods by Nicky Drayden.Book Riot: Congratulations to Nicky Drayden on The Prey of Gods making Book Riot’s Best Books of 2017!

Blending urban fantasy and science fiction, this South Africa-set novel is packed with wild, raucous fun: demigods reclaim their powers, robots rise up, a new club drug gives humans godlike abilities, a trans politician embraces her inner diva, queer teens fall for each other, a dik-dik infestation gets adorably out of control, and more.

Thanks to a rip-roaring story and Drayden’s expansive imagination, it all coheres into the most fun you can have in 2017.
