Trying to find answers as to who left her the house, she meets with the owners of Three Kings, the company that held her house in trust until it was time for her to inherit. The three owners, instead of giving her the answers she’s searching for, add to her confusion and astonishment by claiming that the ancient Greek gods are real and alive. As a matter of fact, she’s talking to the big three now, Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades and they’ve informed her that she’s a long lost goddess. As a bonus, they throw in a job offer. You know they can’t have some unknown goddess running around unattended when she’s about to come into her full powers.
With a cast of gods that include Zeus, Poseidon, Hades, the winds, and a talking tortoise, you know this series is off to a great start. I can’t wait to see what happens to Eva and the rest of the gods in the first full book of the series. The writing’s funny, the characters are fully fleshed out and wonderful, and the storyline’s intriguing. This novella has me hooked and I don’t want to miss what happens next!
This is an enjoyable start to a series. It introduces us to many of the characters who show up in later books, sets the scene, and does a nice job giving background and setting.
Author Caravan has created an interesting world in Surprise, Arizona and elsewhere.
Evangeline (Eva) has Felt like the offspring of Calamity Jane and Mr Magoo her whole life. And who knows, she might be. She's an orphan, put in the foster system, and was lucky enough to land in the most caring of homes.
And lucky she is. At least in that aspect.
Things breaking, people avoiding her streak of bad luck, her "dreams" that tend to come true.
While everyday life can be difficult, Eva just gets fed up. The day before her 25th birthday, her life begins to change. And Oh Gods! Is it a change

This book starts with the main character, Eva, dreaming of people in danger and then saving them in real life the following day. This is an interesting situation and this teaser was why I downloaded the book. It looked good. Unfortunately the story never lives up to the potential of its opening pages. It turns into a loose collection of events that don’t make a coherent story.
Eva is sent a key and told she’s been given a house so without telling anyone she just packs up her stuff and travels interstate to her new house. She doesn’t question whether the house is real or not or if it’s just a scam and she doesn’t tell her best friend or adopted family she’s going. When her best friend/foster sister (who lives in Eva’s old town) finally catches up with her in a phone call Eva says there was nothing for her in her old city. She doesn’t even seem to realise that saying that is deeply offensive to her foster sister or should be but fortunately the foster sister doesn’t seem to realise how offensive it is either. I found this very silly. The main character doesn’t react to what she should react to. She actually doesn’t react a great deal to anything. And while on her road trip to her new house she meets some guys and stays with them and has a great time so when she gets to her new house she invites them all to live with her. Who would do that?
There’s no conflict at all in this story and without conflict there’s no story. The main character just seems to Mary Sue it across two states and conveniently falls unconscious at one point so there can be some exposition from other characters. There’s no purpose to this story other than to get the character from her home to her new home and that’s just a bit boring.
