simply fun - nice twist on classic myths, legends and superheroes
Charmingly light-hearted series. Each book can easily be read on its own.
A fun fairy tale set in Portland. Vivian has no idea she will be a mage the she meets the superhero of her dreams. Will the live happily ever after? Of Course, but this was a fun way to get there.
Like a comic book adventure, this witty confection is stuffed with nonstop action, superhuman heroics and a hasty helping of romance. Psychic Vivian Kinneally loves comic book superheroes, but it isn't until she becomes embroiled in a fiasco involving three women who call themselves the Fates, a humanitarian pet store owner and a villain intent on world domination that she begins to believe that comics can have a factual basis. The novel hits fever pitch the moment Vivian opens her door to three damsels in distress who claim to be the Fates, chief justices of a magical otherworld. Having temporarily relinquished their powers, the Fates are now on the run from an unknown person intent on harming them. They seek shelter with Vivian, but when they learn Vivian is untrained and unaware of her powers, they send her to fetch pet store owner Dexter Grant, a sexy, century-old man possessing Superman's face and form as well as some of his superpowers. The pair meet up briefly with the protagonists from Grayson's previous novels (Completely Smitten, etc.) but, ultimately, it is Vivian who must save the day. All the events occur within a few days, which makes for a slim, speedy but surprisingly believable romance. Zany and over-the-top, this playful novel is a delight.
I liked the myth/fairytale/paranormal aspect to this. Curious about what happens to the fates, that part was unresolved. Liked the animals in this one (since I have 3 cats).
