Genre: YA or Children's Fantasy

I keep hoping that another one of Levine's books will be as sweet and perfect as _Ella Enchanted_... this one isn't. It's an extreamly quick read, set in a pre-greco-roman fantasy world. The basic plot (a god falling in love with a mortal) would make a great short story, but there isn't enough other stuff going on (sub-plots, well-drawn minor charactors, etc.) to support a full lenght novel. Unfortunately I found the love story which is the core of the novel to be unbelievable. *sigh* I did like the riff it does on the fairy tail/mythology trope of a mortal in love with an immortal.
