Synopsis from Goodreads
IN THE WAR BETWEEN THE GODS… 

No one patches up the incoming wounded like Dr. Petra Robichaud. Recruited by the gods for her uncanny medical skills, she’s the best M*A*S*H surgeon in the army. Along with a nosy guard sphinx, vegetarian werewolf, and other paranormal paramedics, she bandages soldiers who are built like Greek gods (literally). But when one sexy immortal ends up on her operating table—half dead and totally to-die-for—Petra’s afraid she’ll lose her patient and her heart…

NOTHING IS MORE DANGEROUS THAN LOVE

Commander Galen of Delphi is one gorgeous but stubborn demi-god. When his spirit tries to slip out of his fatally wounded body, Dr. Petra has to slip it back in—unwittingly revealing her ability to see ghosts. Now that Galen knows her secret, he’s convinced she’s part of an ancient prophecy. If the oracles are right, Petra could lead Galen’s army to peace. And if he seduces her on the way to hell and back? Heaven knows—all’s fair in love and war…

 Listen, peeps, I'm sure lots of people will like this book so much more than me. Unfortunately it was just not for me. 



I got hooked by the first chapter because it was funny and unusual, but as I continued reading the book humour dwindled to almost nothing and angst rose way too much to be comfortable with the main hero and heroine.

I actually had no problem with Galen, he was consistent. It's Petra who was flopping around like fish out of water. She will, then she won't, then she will, then she won't. I got really tired of the emotional ups and downs. 

Her angst made her behave like a petulant child and begrudge the improvements Galen made for her friends and colleagues in the camp, she also lost her spark and decisiveness of a good surgeon, and I just couldn't care for Petra anymore.

However the world itself is very interesting, and I would like it to be explored more. I especially loved the paranormal news network with the coverage of oracles wailing and tearing hair... It was hilarious.

Recommended to the fans of Alyssa Day, Jacquelin Frank and Elizabeth Naughton.

Интересный мир, однако сам по себе он не смог удержать моё внимание из-за проблем с главной героиней.

Петра начала книгу со здоровым юмором военного хирурга, но по мере её отношений с Галеном, она превратилась в ноющую, не знающую чего она хочет бабу, и читать о ней стало противно. Юмор практически исчез, а от главной героини я очень устала, так что помимо прикольной паранормальной сети по ТВ, рассказывающей о воющих и рвущих на себе волосы предсказательницах, ржать было не с чего.

Я скучала, и чуть ли не забросила книгу. О главном герое не могу сказать ничего конкретного - очень он уж идеален и нереален. Никакой искорки между парочкой не чувствовалось. Однако, я думаю, что многим читателям эта книга всё-равно придётся по душе, так что не скажу, что я её не советую. Вот нравятся же другим людям Алисса Дэй и Жаклин Франк, вот понравится и эта серия.

  2. Hmm, the premise sounds so good. Maybe I'll see if my library has it.
