An eldritch comedy. After Cthulhu is summoned into the world, the whole place goes to shit. Things really got out of hand after Cthulhu got nuked. Alex and Julius, a pair of brothers, try their best to make it in a North America reshaped by an eldritch apocalypse.

“Stop right there Philip!” Julius interrupted, the vein on his temple starting to throb. “I do not want to hear another simile about what magic is. I have had magic explained to me by three cult leaders, a wizard, and a cannibal. I've heard that magic is like a rainbow, all its parts blending together. The human unconsciousness, powerful and unknowable. A body, you don't want to eat the heart straight away. I am sick and tired of people telling me what magic is. I know damn well what it is.” He drew a breath, interrupting his rant.

“Magic is a bad joke. A whole lot of setup, for some nonsense punchline. This whole god-damned apocalypse is an eldritch comedy.”

Overall

There was uptick in eldritch comedies recently. With everything coming up, you'd think there would be enough of good stuff to read. Well, you're wrong. This story is everything a good eldritch horror/comedy is supposed to be. It has a great premise, our protagonists see apocalypse unravel with their own eyes. After this, they get to survive in a new world, where Cthulhu is trending! I can only say that the story feels very fast paced overall, but it may be my first impression, since only 9 chapters are up as of time of this review (it's unclear what goal protagonists have, so far seems like a simple survival). Overall I like this novel, and I wish author to continue writing it. It's crazy how this novel that is supposed to be in trending, is so unpopular. Weird. Also, I think author can try to work more on refining two characters-brothers so it would show more difference in their povs, or just make one main character all together (it certainly easier and author won't need to tear himself apart trying to write two povs into the story)
