** spoiler alert ** This book did have Martinezs' trademark humor laced throughout, but there was something fundamentally disturbing about the basic premise - that gods (all gods) have basically went corporate and commercial; and all relationships between gods and humans are policed by the Divine Affairs Agency.

Phil and Terry, a typical suburban couple, get fed up at what they missing out on without a god to back them so after hours of going through the god dating site they pick a god.

Who moves in with them. And neglects to them that he is in a centuries old war with an off-the-book god of death and chaos, putting them right in the cross-fire.

On one hand, it is great humorous book; and on the other hand, the book makes you think a bit about our relationships with religion.
