did not like it
Read in November, 2012

** spoiler alert ** I really wanted to like this book. I did enjoy it at the start (and the OCD vampires were a riot), but by the end Gage had completely slid into the TSTL category for me.

The author was just too heavy-handed on this one. One-- MAYBE two-- insurmountable problems would have been plenty, but by the end of the tale, Gage has racked up NINE of them (if I counted right). Almost all of his enemies are ridiculously overpowered. There is NO WAY he *should* have made it to the end of the book. (Frankly, given what a reckless, arrogant, oblivious idiot the man is, I'm amazed he lasted even a month out of the Ivory Towers.)

There was just... no balance. To let him survive-- much less win-- the author had to turn Gage into the worst kind of (to use a gamer term) munchkin imaginable. Even the world building wasn't very believable in the end-- the Greek gods had more weaknesses and restraint than the Ivory Tower residents seem to.
