My Review

This debut urban fantasy novel is a refreshing and unique take on magic and mythology, that involves gods in the in the glittering lights of Las Vegas.

Catherine Sharp’s life sucks, not only is she working at a dead end job, she’s stuck performing random task to the Greek goddess of Discord, Eris, who just happens to own her soul.  When her soul is anted up in a poker game with five sneaky gods, Catherine must find a way to collect the winning chips that could save her life.  She’s joined by Marius, a satyr who owns his own debt to Eris and if they don’t kill each other or fall in love, they just might get their freedom back.

The author has created a fun, fast paced read that keeps readers entertained from beginning to end.   She brings this fascinating tale to life with vivid imagery, lots of action and intrigue and compelling characters with strong snarky personalities that seizes the imagination and doesn’t let go.  There is also plenty of humor with some amusing events set in motion by the twisted game the gods are playing as well as the sassy and spunky dialogue.  And the author’s setting the story in Las Vegas is ingenious I mean what better place for the gods to play in the modern world.

The author does a great job of building this fascinating world, making the reader feel as if they are right there with the characters.  This world certainly has a promising future if the author decides to make it into a series.  I certainly feel that her debut novel is a success and I will be keeping my eye out for more books by Jamie Wyman.

5 STARS
