As a hockey fan, I often find myself mentioning the elusive “hockey gods” while watching a game. As in: “The hockey gods had a hand in that short-handed goal” and “Man, the hockey gods sure weren’t smiling on such and such team tonight.” Players pray to them and commentators thank them for trades, goals, etc.
Like many of you, I spent the summer glued to my TV watching Game of Thrones. And then it hit me upside the head—like most of my ideas do—wouldn't it be great to have a story with all of the same enchanting elements, but about hockey?
So I sat down in my writing cave and mixed together elements from my favorite fantasy/action/adventure stories, weaved in some betrayal and sex, threw in a dash of violence with a twist of magic, revolved it all around my favorite sport, and Hockey Gods was born.
I hope you enjoy Nataliya and Calder's adventure as they set out to win the coveted Cup and become the greatest, most revered heroes of all time—the Hockey Gods.
