You Shall Go to the Stars (Est. 2004)
About the Site
geek god review started as a monthly review of books that could bore the majority of the earth’s population. It provides top ten list of books every end of the year. Soon afterwards, it began reviewing awesome TV shows not nominated in the Golden Globes (which means no Game of Thrones here) and movies. It then proceeded in writing things that could be annoying and downright unpopular. To date, it already posted articles of various topics in politics, association football, history, cancelled TV shows, as well as, extensive reviews of that several mythology novels from a single author who sure loves to write about them. This is apart from its usual reviews of YA novels and other geeky books.
The site’s current obsession is on researching about the life and writing the biographies of all of Britain’s Ministers for Magic.
About the Authors
Our current pool of writers include three demigods, one god-turned-mortal (for the time being) and a crazy mortal who just made this all up.
Boring News, Politics, and History editor
Carter Kane is the eldest child of Julius and Ruby Kane and brother of Sadie Kane. Carter becomes the Pharaoh of the House of Life and is one of the three most powerful magicians in the world, along with his sister, Sadie and his Uncle Amos.
He is very protective of his family and friends, and would do anything to ensure their safety. He tends to be a gentleman because of the way his dad had raised him, and is usually thinking of how to solve their next problem. He is funny and usually stammers around girls. He mostly thinks outside the box and puts others lives before his own. While lacking self-confidence in himself, Carter is a natural leader, something that he grows into over the course of the series.
TV Shows and Movies editor
Magnus Chase is a sixteen-year-old, homeless teenager who lived in Boston, Massachusetts. He is the Norse demigod son of Frey and Natalie Chase, as well as the cousin of Greek demigod Annabeth Chase. After dying and becoming an einherji, he lives his afterlife in Hotel Valhalla.
Magnus is witty, caring, smart, sneaky, and has a funny, sarcastic sense of humor. He is also really street smart from living on the streets for two years. He feels he has an obligation to protect those in danger, like he did on the Charles bridge while facing Surt. However, he is somewhat cynical and shares Percy’s tendency to make snide remarks both internally and vocally. Despite living on the streets and being forced to eat out of dumpster bins to survive, Magnus is also rather health conscious, showing incredible disgust upon learning that dwarves evolved from maggots to the point that he’s unable to say it comfortably. Unlike most demigods, he lacks a natural combat instinct, but is instead much better at thinking and talking out his problems.
Football and Other Sports editor
Apollo, also known as Lester Papadopoulos in his human form, is the Greek god of the sun, light, healing, music, poetry, archery, reason and prophecy. He is the twin brother of the goddess Artemis. He is depicted as the god who drives the sun around in his chariot, a job he received when the original sun god, Helios, faded due to him being downsized by the Romans. He and his sister, Artemis, are known as the Twin Archers. His Roman form is also called Apollo. He is currently in human form after being cast down from Olympus by his father Zeus.
Apollo is described as arrogant, self-centered, and cocky, as is typical among the gods. He has been obsessed with haikus ever since he visited Japan and also appears to obsess over other kinds of poems, depending on where he visits. Although he considers himself a great poet, he is actually really terrible at it.
Not-So-Geeky-Books and YA Novels editor
Perseus “Percy” Jackson is a seventeen-year-old Greek demigod, the son of Poseidon and Sally Jackson. He is the head counselor of Poseidon’s Cabin and a former Praetor of the Twelfth Legion at Camp Jupiter. He is currently in a relationship with Annabeth Chase.
Percy is a brave, spirited natural leader, and is willing to risk his life to save friends, family, strangers, and sometimes even enemies. He has a sarcastic and smart sense of humor, a laid-back demeanor, and has earned the respect of all the Olympians, He also earned the trust and respect of the Romans of Camp Jupiter (who usually don’t trust Greeks). Percy remains true and never goes back on his word. However, he is definitely not perfect. Percy is somewhat short-tempered, and thus has trouble controlling his anger (such as when he sees bullying) and tends to do or blurt out things before thinking, no matter the consequences, causing him to get into a lot of trouble. He also feels responsible for everyone and anything which goes wrong. Percy is also really reckless and rebellious.
