What I liked best about this book is that J-- was the traditional ancient Roman god -- a "small g" god as one of my school teachers once said. Put another way, J-- is basically an incredibly powerful wizard with more than his fair share of human failings. Some other reviews seem to indicate otherwise, which made me reluctant to give this book a chance.
I liked S--. She was strong without being a bully, capable without being perfect, and just plain likeable. The setting descriptions are nicely done, the writing smooth, and the characterizations different (depth & variety). My only major complaint was that the ending was a bit weak, but I cannot say why without spoilers.
Once I moved past that and actually sat down to read with an open mind I enjoyed the plot line. Not overjoyed mind you but still all in all a good read.
The main character isn't the best person in the world and she knows it, honestly none of the characters outside of the furie and Anna D were all that interesting or well defined with the reason/character that started this all being the one I liked the least.
The action once it starts was almost over the top at times with scenes appearing to bleed into one another.
Waiting on the next one in the series to see where she's going to go.
I did not connect with any character and disliked most of them including the main one. The only character I remotely liked did not fare well in the end. I will not be continuing this series.
There are so many better series books to read I would not recommend wasting time or money on this one.
