Fleet by Brian Marshall - Guest Blogger Book Review

A man, lost and naked, on the streets of Manhattan, pleading in an unknown tongue. The retired linguist who realizes it's an archaic Greek, unspoken for three thousand years. And the young woman who befriends them both, just in time for an unlikely quest. From New York to LA, Nebraska to Delphi, Fleet travels a labyrinth, with a mystery as old as mankind lying at its very heart.

Jennifer's Review
Fleet is a very good book. I liked it. 
It's about an old man named Simon who is hired to figure out who a man in jail with no memory is. After talking to the man, Simon soon learns the man is a god in a human body. Then, after the man gets his memory back, they are soon looking for the other gods who are trapped in human bodies but are completely unaware of it. Once they are all together, they soon have to battle the creatures who put them in the bodies and messed up their memories. 
What are the creatures? Who is each god? 
This is a very good book, and if you like mythology, read this book. 
4 stars.  

Author Bio
Raised by a band of feral authors hidden in the deep north woods, Brian Marshall was no ordinary child. Proper syntax flowed through his veins. Semi-colons were his crib mates. And as he grew older, he came to realize these unique gifts were meant to serve good, not evil.

Abandoning his wayward clan, he set out in search of a sensei, the fabled Tan Line, Master of Men, and high priest of punctuation. Under his rigid tutelage, the boy's talents found full flower, till the fateful day had finally arrived when the pupil outpaced his master. Would he now rise to take that mantle? Assail the bestsellers list?

Alas, no. For along with great power, he had found something else. A rare prize called humility. From that day forward he would toil away in deepest obscurity. Not for him the accolades, or the tawdry lure of fame, but instead the pursuit of merest spark, to be Kindled to full flame.

For is it not written that to win the world, a wise man begins with one reader.
