Publisher's Summary

Being a Greek god is not all it once was. Yes, the 12 gods of Olympus are alive and well in the 21st century, but they are crammed together in a London townhouse - and none too happy about it. And they've had to get day jobs: Artemis as a dog-walker, Apollo as a TV psychic, Aphrodite as a phone sex operator, Dionysus as a DJ.

Even more disturbingly, their powers are waning, and even turning mortals into trees - a favorite pastime of Apollo's - is sapping their vital reserves of strength.

Soon, what begins as a minor squabble between Aphrodite and Apollo escalates into an epic battle of wills. Two perplexed humans, Alice and Neil, who are caught in the crossfire, must fear not only for their own lives, but for the survival of humankind. Nothing less than a true act of heroism is needed - but can these two decidedly ordinary people replicate the feats of the mythical heroes and save the world?

Love this story

The story is great. A reread was necessary. The performance was fine character voices were a bit odd. But they were easy to separate each from the other.

Good, but could be better.

I enjoyed it, but felt that there was a great deal of comedy left untapped.
