It was bad enough that gods gambled with human souls, but Catherine Sharp's soul just had to be won by the Greek goddess of Discord, Eris. As if working a dead-end tech support job didn't suck the life out of her as it was. Now, Cat finds herself performing random tasks for the goddess in her free time. But when Coyote, the Native American trickster himself, claims to have won her own soul in Mayhem's weekly poker game, Cat wants in on the action.
With five sneaky gods upping the ante, Cat needs to find a way to collect the winning chips that could save her soul. Marius, snarky satyr with his own debt to Eris, might finally come in handy for something. If they play their cards right and work together, Cat and Marius may just get their freedom back. If they don't kill each other first.

Excellent! Most enjoyable. The protagonist is strong in character and I find her full of spunk. She is determined to get out of the contract with a certain god who has her soul in captivity. In the midst of all the action, she discovered she is a technomage with some magic of her own. A very interesting storyline and I am looking forward to continuing with more of her adventures in book 2.
Catherine Sharp's life has not been hers for ten years since Eris, the Greek Goddess of Discord. What she thinks is a normal day but turns into one she will never forget. She finds out Eris is betting her soul away during a poker game with five Gods. Some of which test Cat over the next day. With the help of a Satyr, who is also in debt to Eris "helps" Cat along her journey but he wants something in return.
This was a fun story that has many twists and turns. It was very entertaining and enjoyable. This is the first book in this series and it starts the series off with a great start. This is my first book by this author but it won't be my last. I enjoyed the narration in this book as well, very well performed and easy to listen to.
The first time I got my hands on the kindle version of this book I couldn't put it down. Listen to it I felt an even more intense need to keep listening until I finished hearing the whole story. Amazing book Jamie!
