Editorial Reviews

Review

Right up front, I'm going to explain why the title isn't bad grammar. Because for some reason it was throwing me every time I saw it, until I started reading and went 'oh!'

The Gods Defense is what someone dubbed the excuse a criminal could use when the godsmade them commit a crime. Sort of like the 'I was out of my mind'defense. And I suppose at this point you realize I'm not talking aboutyour ordinary legal thriller courtroom drama. There is some courtroom in the book, and the main character is a lawyer, but...

Amie Gibbons' The Gods Defense is set in our world with a twist. Magic has returned after a 5000 year absence, and the gods of myth have awoken. People are finding that they suddenly have powers, and animalscan talk (well, some of them. But I really love the flying kitten Mirawith her hoverboard minigun. Yeah, some things are just too cute forwords.) Speaking of cute, this book is a fun, frothy romp with subtlyunderlying questions of philosophy, personal freedom, and free will. The main character is a young lawyer who is determined not to become thepersonal lawyer (and more) of the newly-returned god Apollo. He isequally determined to have her, for reasons she isn't entirely sure of.

Rounding out the cast of characters are her two best friends, alsolawyers and also newly magical, Hades and Persephone (rather fun, inthis story), and the grumpy but flirty senior god Zeus. All together,they are trying to maintain a fragile alliance that could be all thatstands between humans and extinction - or worse, slavery. This isstraight-up paranormal romance, complete with real sparks flying, sodon't expect anything heavy. It's a light read, for all that it doestouch on serious topics.

Oh, and the main character is armed and dangerous, in addition tobeing a magic user. It's one of the really fun things about this book,the sheer practicality of the heroine (when she isn't falling victim toher hormones around Apollo) and her friends, too. Coming from Amie, itwas no surprise to me, but I suspect my readers will enjoy it even ifthey don't usually read this genre.

- Cedar Sanderson, author of the Pixie For Hire Series.

From the Author

I first wrote The Gods Defense as a novella back before law school.  The funny thing is, I decided to place it in Nashville when I was barely applying to law schools.  I picked a city one of the schools I was considering was in pretty much randomly.

Sometimes I swear I'm psychic too.

I wrote the story and went back and rewrote it after getting to Nashville to add in the flavor of the city.  The rest of the book got written after I returned to writing after recovering from law school.

In a way, this book is representative of my own journey.  The last thing I edited before law school became the first part of the first book I wrote after law school, bringing me full circle.
