The Gods of Love by Nicola Mostyn

Meet Frida. Divorce lawyer, cynic and secret descendant of the immortal love god Eros. She’s about to have a really bad day . . .

When a handsome but clearly delusional man named Dan bursts into Frida’s office and insists that she is fated to save the world, she has him ejected faster than you can say ‘prenup’.

But a creepy meeting, a demon or three and one attempted kidnapping later, Frida is beginning to face the inconvenient truth: Dan is, in fact, The Oracle, the gods of Greek mythology are real and Frida herself appears to be everyone’s only hope.

The world is doomed.

Bridget Jones by way of Neil Gaiman, this smart and quirky story will change the way you look at love forever.

A warm, funny love story with a difference, this is truly a super-heroine story for the modern age.

Review

When I read the back of this book, I thought that this was a nice quick easy read and it is, this book is filled with Greek Mythology which if my 17-year-old self-had read this, I would have loved it. I got very into Greek Mythology back then and I even tried to write a book with a Greek Mythology theme, but it didn’t work out. But moving on from my obsession with Greek Mythology and onto this book.

Frida is a divorce lawyer, she doesn’t believe in love but she is not interested in falling in love herself. A man walks into her office and tells her that he is an Oracle and that she shouldn’t go to a meeting with the world’s largest tech company called NeoStar. She brushes it off and continues with her day until she discovers the people behind NeoStar have other ideas. I love Frida, she is smart and sassy but also a little bit flawed, she is new to learning about this new world and does fall into a few traps.

I really enjoyed this book, I liked seeing the changes the Mostyn had made with incorporating the mythology to the modern day, the pacing was great and very easy to read.

I have to admit it did remind me of a game that I sometimes play called Lovestruck, it’s an app game which is one of those romance stories and you choose how you would respond, it’s a great app, very addicting because it’s like reading a book but it does have a collection of chapters for Greek Mythology. The book just reminded me of the game and how entertaining it was.

If you do get the chance to read the book, let me know.

Happy reading xx
