Big Blue 10,022 by Chad T. Douglas is the story of a young girl called Indiga as she is trying to find a way to help her people, but fate has bigger plans for her. Indiga knew that her life was not going to be easy, but she had no idea that her life would be this difficult. In a world where people rely on their gods a little too much, Indiga and her people had been living on the edge of fear and devastation by a monster that is as merciful as the sharp tip of a sword. She thought she could save her people, but when she fails, she finds herself in servitude to a goddess called Benni and a spirit guide called Odgod. She thought she would be spending the rest of her life repenting, but when she is tasked with stopping the ever-powerful Songwald, she knows that she can achieve salvation. He is hell-bent on preventing the humans from connecting with their gods and Indiga is ready to do whatever it takes to protect the world. Can she do it?
Eclectic and charming, this is the perfect example of a fantasy novel. The author has done a wonderful job in creating a world that is at once terrifying and believable. The descriptions are so vivid that I could easily picture what was happening. I was invested in Indiga’s journey, I wanted her to succeed and find a way to save the people who don’t actually have any faith in her. While Indiga is a strong protagonist, Odgod is the one that I found even more interesting. Odgod was like “No Face” from Spirited Away, but so much better. It was very intelligent, there was sound advice in its chatter and Indiga knew to listen to it. This is a very entertaining young adult story that would actually make a great TV series.
