With most of the internet down yesterday across the northeast, it was a very good time to curl up on the couch with a good book and a mug of hot chocolate. Thankfully, my Kindle app on my iPhone was behaving just fine. I decided that I was in the mood for science fiction and Gods Behaving Badly (book 1) by Mickey Ann was the book I chose to read. Thank you to the author for sponsoring this post and providing a copy for review.

Gods Behaving Badly (Book 1) by Mickey Ann
Hecate (Cate) is a fallen goddess pining over the loss of her soul to Hades. How does an immortal trapped in a human body cope with ennui and a persistent ex? She does what every human does, of course. She drinks too much and sees her therapist once a week. Pithy and sadly lacking in social skills, Cate is determined to make the most of her ordinary life, even if Hades has other plans for her.
If you remember your Greek mythology, Hecate (or Cate in this story) was the goddess of magic, witchcraft and the night. In this story, Hades has taken Cate’s soul, and she’s forced to live as an almost human in our world. She spends her days mostly unhappy, attending anger management classes, drinking and smoking too much, and trying to avoid a very sexy Ares (the god of War) who shows up when she least wants him to.
Gods Behaving Badly (Book 1) is one of the most enjoyable books I’ve read in a long time. If you can picture the Greek goddess of magic forced to be nearly human, dealing with migraines and perky receptionists, you’ll have an idea of what a fun book this is. I love the author’s ability to truly set magic and witchcraft in the ordinary world we live in. The story is a wonderful blend of mythology, attitude, and sex. It was a pleasure to read. My understanding is that there will be a book two in December, and I cannot wait to read it!
