For God School's latest graduate, the adventure continues...
Bernie is a young god who fixes broken universes for a living. Unfortunately, the universe he's working on is in the middle of a civil war caused by Ashok, a murderous wizard determined to control the lucrative pepper trade.
Bernie's boss urges him to solve the problem by destroying the evil Ashok and his people, but Bernie wants no part of such a massacre. Struggling to find another solution, Bernie tries to get Ashok to give up his plans for world domination. As Bernie's attempts at peaceful solutions continue to fail, his boss comes to believe the best solution is to destroy all the people and start over again.
But Bernie can't let that happen. He must destroy Ashok and his followers. Although he hates the idea of destroying life, Bernie prepares to do what is necessary, only to discover the evil wizard's powers are far more than superstitious nonsense. The young god is drawn into an epic battle pitting the power of the gods against the forces of magic, while the lives of every man, woman, and child on the planet hang in the balance.

I love Bernie , he is such a sweet and loving character . He is such a good guy with a heart of gold . He is still naïve in all things girl related but he can fix a planet . He goes through such changes in this book . He has to handle pressure of deadlines and the growing pressure of the fame he has about seeing an elder . He wears the pressure well though . He grows up a lot in this book . He is my all time favourite god . Lenny is back and is just as cool as he was before . He seems to become an even bigger help to Bernie and his sounding board. He is somewhat the comic relief sometimes for Bernie . Suzie is back as well and she is more then his friend . She knows she wants to be Bernie's girlfriend but like Bernie she is a little shy about it all . You see her get jealous when other girls put designs on Bernie because of his fame . There are some other characters that make an appearance some good and some bad . But as the story comes along you find them all kind of lovable in their own way .
Bernie and the gang is such a fun read . I read this story in an afternoon and loved every moment of it . The author takes us on such a fun ride but there is also a few lessons that we can learn. Like how to handle the fame and also sticking to your guns and doing what you feel is right . This is meant as a young adult book but I honestly believe that anyone would love to read this book . It isn't written down for young kids . It is written in a way that anyone would love it . These are such fun books to read, you never know where Bernie and the gang land up . I can't wait to see where the author takes Bernie in his next book . So if you want a good book for your kids summer reading list or even for your summer reading list . Check out Bernie and the gang . You will not be disappointed in the least .
was given this book by the publishing house for my honest review
