For a book about the murder in the Greek pantheon, Stamp of Fate is surprisingly bland.

You already know that I am a mystery fan, but ancient Greece, its literature and mythology also have a special place in my heart. When I read the blurb for this book, my inner geek stood up and applauded. Murder mystery? Check. Greek gods? Check. In a modern world? Check. Oh, the possibilities! Naturally, I was very excited to review it. The book, however, wasn't what I was hoping for.

On the surface, there isn

Tadd (Ares) and Declan (Hermes) are living happy mortal lives when they discover Sofia (Athena) dead in their foyer, now they are commanded by Bront (Zeus) to discover who the murderer is. But investigating their fellow Gods and Goddesses is not easy, and the strain starts to show in their relationship as the death count mounts and their fellow Olympians cause problems.

This is a very interesting storyline o

Okay, so I love books that have mythology in them. And Greek mythology is among my favourite, probably because I grew up with it when I was much younger. I was always absolutely fascinated by the stories of the Greek gods and goddesses, though Apollo was my favourite. So on seeing this book as a giveaway, I decided I wanted it.

I found the idea very unique. I like mystery/thriller type books and I like fantasy and romance and Greek mythology. So this book hit a

I actually give this 3.5 stars. Maybe I would have given it more if I hadn't figured out who done it and why as early as I possibly could have figured it out. That and the present tense 3rd person POV felt weird to me the whole way through.

The basic plot is that someone is killing the mortal personas of Olympian Gods and Goddesses, and Bront (Zeus) charges Declan (Hermes) as his messenger and spy to figure it out. And Tadd (Ares) to go with him as a bodyguard and keep Declan safe.

*2.5 stars rounded up

I was disappointed, when I read the blurb I was really excited. I mean how do you kill a god? Who would want to and why? I love murder mysteries and thought that was what I was getting. Unfortunately this fell very short of that. Not to mention trying to remember who was who as the gods went under different names since they live in the real world. I had to keep a list so I knew who had what name. This just wasn't for me.

A very well written story that can be enjoyed, whether or not you care for mythology. I liked it but didn’t love it – no fault on the author’s part.
An insult to Pallas Athena.
