A silly, cute type book. Written in a sort of chick-lit style with a protagonist who is a children's librarian and half-superhero, and about to enter a role full time as a Protector. That is, if she doesn't fail her test or decline the job - both of which means she will become mortal and suffer a memory wipe. Losing her memory will mean forgeting her superhero relatives (her dad and big brother). Her powers are x-ray vision, super strength and super sensitivity (chocolate makes her practically explode), but her ability to move objects is almost non-existent. Meanwhile she has met a man she is interested in, but he is mortal and she is afraid of entering a relationship with him, and her cousin (who is being tested the same time as she is), is doing all he can to make her fail her superhero test. Several characters with interconnecting threads as the evildoers scheme and maneuver while the good-guys are mostly blissfully unaware and bumble along.
First book in a 4 book series regarding modern day superheros. They were all fun to read and best read in order. I hate reading a book and finding out that there were other books regarding the characters that were done prior: The order is: Aphrodite's Kiss, Aphrodite's Passion, Aphrodite's Secret and Aphrodite's Flame.
First book in the series about the Greek Gods and their descendants in the modern world. Entertaining and quirky, with a well thought-out world. A nice, fast read.
Zoe Smith's life has always been a bit odd, but now things are really getting out of hand. Shes about to turn 25, her super powers are not exactly under control and she has to decide whether to join the Council of Protectors or be turned into a mortal.
Also, she has met a handsome private investigator who she really wants to get to know better, but, since she is currently being tested by the Council, this isnt the best time.
This is a truly interesting premise with a good romance and a bit of humor.
I love all of Julie Kenners superheroes books. This was the first in the series and an excellent introduction.(OK Cat's Fancy is slightly related.)
