Gods and Monsters: Mythbreaker
Mythbreaker (Gods and Monsters Book 2) - Stephen Blackmoore

*Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.*

Fitz has stolen money from his drug dealing boss. Fitz is also what is called a 'Chronicler', someone with the gift of hearing the voices of gods, something he's always put down to hallucinations. He learns that he the only Chronicler left and as such a hot commodity within the 'god' community. He's on the run being aided by the god of the internet in an effort to stop the ultimate bad guy gaining control of him and therefore humanity.

Urban fantasy that was a lot of fun, lots of black humour and the mythology interwoven into the plot was done well, keeping me engaged in the story in moments when the action was lighter.
Recommended.

The Unleashing by Shelly Laurenston
The Unleashing - Shelly Laurenston

While reading I constantly reminded myself that it's the first book of the series. So, I didn't have to know everything about the world yet. At the same time it was quite confusing because Kera was thrown into the unknown - Vikings, gods, demons, witches - I'm quite sure I forgot someone. Oh, who cares!

I liked Kera - she could kick some major ass, but still be vulnerable and doubt herself. It was good to read about the heroine, who battled her own demons but still tried to take the best from the bad situation. And believe me, Bird House wasn't the nicest place to hang around.

There was so much hostility toward Kera. Crows were real bitches and every time they called Kera "new girl" I got angrier. She just died, which was quite a dramatic experience, and then she was attacked by some jerks wearing huge hammers. Did the Crows apologize for leaving unconscious Kera alone in the house? No, of course not, they bitched about the broken glass door. These winged freaks wanted her to decide everything right away - where to live, what to do with her second chance and so on. They also thought that having an ex-marine among Crows was something horrible. And at the same time they had bank robbers and psychopaths as members. Hypocrites. And when Kera tried to use her coping mechanism, they went nuts and behaved like immature teenagers. Crows were cruel, heedless, and sometimes plain stupid. 

Vig was the hero in this book, but unfortunately I couldn't see him as Kera's love interest. So, the sexy times were really awkward to my eyes. Vig was the person who asked the goddess to give Kera a second chance, but he didn't have enough courage to clean up and ask the woman out before she died. That's what made it so unbelievable. He had time - weeks, if not months, and he didn't make his move. And then suddenly he is a love interest. Come on!

Overall I'm a bit disappointed because I expected more. It wasn't as funny as Shelly Laurenston's Pride series. Okay, there were some scenes I laughed out loud. I'm definitely going to read the second book because as much as I can say the world has a lot of potential, some Crows were quite unusual, and the end really piqued my interest.

Reading progress update: I've read 15%.
Bound Gods: Crocuta Crocuta - Adrienne Wilder

Cerberus had done what no one else had. He'd cared. He didn't have to. Even if Owen wasn't what Cerberus claimed, a Doxie, he didn't have to care one damn bit. Yet for some reason he did. For some reason, a man so hideous that even the very people created to serve him didn't want to, had a kindness in him Owen had never seen in the most beautiful.
