When Dr. Petra Robichaud is drafted into the army of the gods, she knows it is a life sentence. The gods have been fighting this war for centuries. She is working in a MASH unit near the front and trying to keep it a secret that she can see souls. There is a prophecy that one who can see souls will be able to end the war. Neither side wants that to happen and is willing to kill anyone who has that gift.

One day Commander Galen of Delphi ends up on her table. He dies but Petra is able to grab his soul and return it to his body. Galen sees her as the hope to finally ending the war but Petra is afraid. Galen works his way into her life and they fall in love. Along the way, he convinces her to try to end the war no matter what it might cost either of them personally.

This story reminded me a lot of the old television show MASH as it was filled with quirky characters - including a vegetarian werewolf and a sphinx who had a real mind for trivia - and the constant pranking that the doctors on the TV show used to fight the boredom and the stress of war. These pranks included things like putting Kraken in the showers and other supernatural stuff. I enjoyed the sort of running joke about Petra not taking the time to read the manual.

I liked the story. I thought the world building was well-done. I liked Petra's voice. She is determined to do the best for her patients and has plenty of attitude. I also liked that she was realistically afraid of being the center of a prophecy and afraid of doing the wrong thing. Galen was a great hero too. He was handsome, smart, kind, loyal and loved Petra.

Fans of paranormal romance and fans of mythology will enjoy this story.
