Now about Amy:
Amy Sumida lives on a little island in the middle of the Pacific ocean with her two gravity-defying felines. She sleeps in a fairy bed, lifted high in the air, and upon waking, she enjoys stabbing people with tiny needles, over and over, under the guise of making pretty pictures on their skin. She paints dark images on canvases in a cave-like studio carved out of the side of a cliff, and beautiful murals on the walls of her home directly above. She's happiest with her nose buried in a book or in her laptop as she writes her novels.
She is the author of several books, including the Godhunter series, Feeding the Lwas, The Magic of Fabric, Enchantress, and Bargains of the Heart. She's been writing since she was a little girl but first decided to pursue writing as a career when she gave her High School English teacher one of her books to critique and unbeknownst to her, that teacher passed her book around to all of her friends. A month later she was accosted in the halls by a teacher she didn't know, begging her to write a sequel. She's been writing novels ever since.
She enjoys serious, kick-ass heroines in her literature. "Nothing is more endearing than a woman who goes up against overwhelming supernatural odds with a sense of humor," she says. "Who wouldn't want to be that woman? I want to be that woman. So that's who I write about, the woman I want to be and the men I want to be with."
She's always been fascinated with mythology and world religions, believing that the way to best know a people is to get to know their gods. "Religion is such a huge part of a lot of people's lives, a motivating factor that can lead them to great sacrifice as well as great violence. I try to stay true to the descriptions of the gods I incorporate into my books and respect the cultures they came from. I think if we'd learn to respect everyone's religion and not just our own, there would be a lot less violence and hatred in the world."

I know I'm not this books target demographic (I'm a man), but I couldn't wrap my head around all the rape in this book. And, why does the main character seem to like it so much?? This seems sick and wrong, and I have a high tolerance for that sorta stuff. Like, she gets mind-raped (even worse than normal rape) by a bad guy, yet can't help wanting more or checking him out every time she sees him. Is this the kind of story woman want to read??

Seriously, somebody explain this to me.

On the plus side, the story is well written, the dialogue not bad, and the plot moves forward until it becomes clear that this is going to be a never ending series that just gets worse and worse until you don't care about it anymore.

Funny, charming, sweet and action packed! I rarely write reviews, unless a book is extra-ordinary in some way, good or bad. This book is extra-ordinarily good. Vervain has stumbled onto a secret, the Gods are real but they aren't gods. They are Atlanteans who have learned to channel both our worship and our blood sacrifices. Vervain is a refreshing character. She doesn't have a certain Paranormal heroines hang ups that take 17 books to overcome. She is comfortable with who she is. She is a fighter, who has to learn to also be a lover. She is a human who takes on immortals and also entices them. The action scenes are sharp and just the right length. The book is sexy without tipping into the pornographic. Her struggles between the various Gods courting her are at once humorous and touching. Thor is not our Marvel hero but a real version of the Viking God, with all his foibles and nobility. Blue is wonderfully torn between being evil and trying hard to learn to love. Witchcraft is presented well - as a Wiccan, I appreciate that. Her side characters are interesting without being intrusive, I particularly like the depiction of Horus, you can just feel the wounds under his hard candy coated shell. I would however like to see a few more Goddesses presented in a good light. If I could, I would dazzle you with more stars as 5 just doesn't gut it

WARNING: thus is by now a 16 book series with no freaking end in sight. It's well written but by the time you've written 16 books there should be SOME resolution. It's not even different characters. 16 books over decade in her time and the main character still doesn't have her crap together. I do like the characters, the writing is both hilarious and witty and the storyline is interesting but 16 books and countless hours in and I still can't get an HEA? Waste of time. Give me a good ending so I can move on.

Let me start by saying that if this was a show on television, I would absolutely watch it. It definitely has that Buffy vibe, and the mythos is both fascinating and engaging. I loved seeing which god/goddess/creature would show up next. The explanations for both vampires and werewolves was creative enough to keep me interested, even though those particular monsters have been done to death in this genre.

That being said, my review is more a 3.5 stars (I always round up.) The editing was pretty bad, so if you're a stickler for the correct use of commas, you might find it a little distracting. I don't mind overlooking that for an interesting and engaging story (which this was). It was by the time the fifth beautiful man had confessed his love/lust for the main character that I began to get a little tired. Perhaps if the all the characters hadn't kept insisting that she was so witty/funny/interesting...

Overall, I'd recommend this book vs. not recommend it, especially if you love mythology and seeing all the various world pantheons flung together.

Another character living out the author's sexual fantasies book. It is a shame because there is a lot of creativity in world building and it really does show a lot of promise with a strong female protagonist. Unfortunately it degenerates into seduction and sex every time a male character is involved. Needs more story...

DNF at 40% - I just didn't care for the storyline or the heroine for that matter. I'm glad it was offered as a freebie, but it definitely wont be a series I will continue. Speaking of this as a series, I just saw that it has over 15 books in it now. And still little to no resolution or closure, and the books tend to end on cliffhanger. Um, no thanks!

This book had a really interesting plot and plenty of adventure. However everything good about this story soon became lost in a high school drama of an unnecessarily moody romance and corny one liners. It took some patience to read through the, 'I'm too broken to be loved, but every straight powerful guy wants to claim me....' drivel. Still, I found the plot dynamic enough to be worth finishing the book. I most likely won't continue the series though. The author has already set up the ongoing romantic turmoil of a new love triangle that will lead into the next book. It's more of the same, making it fairly predictable and a bit tedious.

I have read all of the books in Amy's Godhunter series and they are all fantastic! If you've been looking for a new author to obsessively read, you've come to the right place. There are nine books so far, and I can tell you they are all well worth buying. Vervain's life is fascinating and outrageous. She is a sympathetic character you can relate to who develops into a multi-faceted, even more kick-ass character over the course of the series. At the height of her power, she is still lovable and vulnerable, never losing the important parts of her humanity. And her men, whew! Well, you'll just have to read to find out ;-) The Godhunter series is a hidden gem in a sea of dreck. Don't pass it by! (And if you're wondering, no, I don't know Amy Sumida and no, I wasn't paid for this review.) The series really is that awesome.
