The Gods of Olympus are down on hard times. They are living in a flat in London, their power is running out slowly, and no one believes in them. But a stupid prank is about to change their world.

This is a quick, fluffy read. No deep characters here, but they don't have to be. They are Gods, you can figure out their persona from that. All are vain, all are selfish, and that makes for some humorous reading.

The mortals in the book are not much deeper. The female lead is a shy but smart cleaner and scrabble savant. The male is a shy but smart engineer. Neither one makes a move at each other, until of course forced to by the Gods.

I am not a big fan of urban fantasy, but throw gods into the mix and I am a bit better. This a funny, quick read. Think Christopher Moore toned down two or three notches. Sweet smiles rather than laugh out loud, but enjoyable fluff all the way through.
