Persuasion by Jaymin Eve

Curse of the Gods, #2

Willa Knight: Dweller? Bad-ass? Notorious pet to five magical beings?

In Blesswood, there are rules, and someone is trying to teach her how to follow them. The only problem is Willa. Which shouldn’t be anything new, since she has been a problem since birth—something her pseudo-sister Emmy would agree on.

So it definitely shouldn’t be new … but it is.

Because things are starting to happen that have never happened before.

Things are starting to get …chaotic.

“I’m special,” I declared sarcastically. I actually was special, but not in a kick-the-gods-asses kind of way. More in the dropped-on-my-head-at-birth kind of way.”

After finishing the oddball and indefinable first novel, I dug into this second right away to see what disasters Willa would get into this time with her five Sols.

Willa does indeed trip, stumble and cause general chaos, especially when she accidentally ends up in a floating platform world in the sky and angers the big Sols who toss her over the side. Still, Willa irritated me most of the novel and it got a bit repetitive and over the top how she keeps accidentally getting herself in weird situations of smooshing against the guys or is donned in wet shirts and nudity scenes. Some of her dialogue grates on her my nerves like nails on a chalkboard too, but hey, it’s balanced since the story is fun enough and the Sols hold up the ship when it starts sinking into the silly zone too fast.

You’d definitely need to read this in order and know what’s going on, but also to get into the characters since the actual storyline doesn’t start for awhile and it holds up by being invested in the character’s lives and their disasters up till this point. If you don’t care about any of that or like any of them, you’d kind of be screwed since the storyline takes a bit to take off.

I was happy to see Dwellers are getting a backbone because of their submissive nature annoying the peaches off me. Developments are stirring up from various sources, and I liked meeting the God of Neutral and more with the God of Chaos, the inter-romantic rhythms with the five and their “pact”.

Nonsensical and over the top, it’s just plain fun and induces smiles at the same time it’s bringing out the groans and eye rolls.
