32 books for "American Gods" fans

At the B&N Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog Martin Cahill, inspired by the television adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s American Gods, tagged thirty-two books in which deities take direct action, including:
Crossroads of Canopy, by Thoraiya Dyer

Another debut, this one set in the magical, massive rainforest of Canopy, where 13 gods watch over their faithful at the top of the trees, keeping them safe, and safeguarding their interests. Unar, a young orphan, comes to the temple of Audblayin, goddess of life, and pledges that one day, when Audblayin is reborn as a man, she will become their bodyguard. When Audblayin passes away, Unar’s mettle is tested, as she seeks to locate the newly reborn god in Canopy, and finds herself not only in the realm of the other gods, but soon climbing down below the treetops, where older and darker deities lurk.
