There are some things that really annoy Vervain Lavine. Like when people call her Vivian; "Vervain's an herb, look it up." Or when people don't get her movie quotes; "Why doesn't anyone appreciate culture anymore?" But what really bothers her, what gets her little witchy panties in a twist, is when gods manipulate humans. "They're not even really gods, just Atlanteans playing dress up!" Yeah, that's right, the gods are Atlanteans. Basically a bunch of refugees who decided to take over. It was a sweet deal for them, at least back when we believed in them and all. Not so much anymore. Nowadays, there ain't too many folks lining up at the altars to give their offerings, and gods are suffering for it. Without our sacrifices, the gods don't have enough juice to keep living in the manner to which they've grown accustomed. So they came up with a plan. It was so easy actually. All they had to do was get us to fight amongst ourselves, go to war. When our kind die, they suck up the energy like a temperature-resistant fat man drinking a milkshake line-up. Not such a bad idea, and it's worked for quite awhile. Up until Vervain found out. Now, don't get the wrong idea. Vervain's no Laura Croft. She can't bench press 200 lbs or shoot laser beams out of her eyes either. She does have magic on her side though and a few little tricks up her sleeve, or up her gloves rather. So she's not completely defenseless and she'll do whatever she has to in order to end this threat of divine proportions. Even if it means assassinating one god at a time. Her greatest annoyance is yet to come though, in the form of a gorgeous Viking God who swears he's on her side. If she can keep her eyes off his leather pants long enough, they might even stand half a chance.
Vervain is a Godhunter. She stumbled upon this occupation by accident, and the thing is these beings aren't even real gods. They just have the power, and ego. Now, she's not going to let them feed off of humans, or make war break out just to raise their power.
However, when Thor runs into her one day, she knows her world will never be the same. Now, she's going to help a few gods fight against other gods, and not only is that bad it's worse because Thor seems to have a thing for her.
Vervain better figure out her next moves before it is all too late.
This book was very interesting, and very funny as well. She's got a funny way of fighting, and working with the Gods, but she's doing her best.
The only thing that confused me was this is suppose to be considered a reverse-harem series, but that hasn't happened yet or even really been alluded to in this one. However, that can always change as the series goes on, so I will keep reading, but so far this one was not exactly what I was hoping.
