trickery by jaymin eveTrickery (Curse of the Gods Book 1), a fantasy novel, by Jaymin Eve and Jane Washington. Book review written by Pam Eaton.

Willa Knight: Dweller. Slave. Non-magical being.

In Minatsol, being a dweller means that you are literally no better than dirt. In fact, dirt might actually be more useful than Willa. Her life will be one of servitude to the sols, the magic-blessed beings who could one day be chosen to become gods.

At least her outer village is far removed from the cities of the sols, and she won’t ever be forced to present herself to them… Until one small mistake changes everything, and Willa is awarded a position to serve at Blesswood, the top sol academy in the world—a position that she definitely did not earn.

Under the sudden, watchful eye of the gods, she will be tasked to serve the Abcurse brothers, five sols built of arrogance, perfection and power. They are almost gods themselves, and under their service she is either going to end up sentenced to death, or else they are going to ruin her so badly that she will wish for it.

Either way, she is in trouble.”

Oh I loved this book. Especially because it made me laugh out loud, and that doesn’t happen very often in books. The writing of Jaymin Eve and Jane Washington is masterful. The characters they created are amazing. And also, the writing is seamless and I forgot at times that this was the work of two authors.

I really liked Willa. She’s been born in the lower class, but she doesn’t care. Her interactions with everyone are hilarious. I love her attitude and her outlook on life. The way she deals with the Abcurse brothers makes this book. She infiltrates them so beautifully. But these authors have set up a problem that I have no clue how they are going to solve.

Also, I want to touch a little on the world in which the book is set. I’m hoping they’ll expound on it a little bit more, because it seems like earth, but in the future. But with the Greek gods, I’m hoping for more.

The next book comes out soon and I can’t wait to read it. I highly recommend this book. It was so entertaining and made me want more.
