Recession of the Divine by Hillary Jacques
There’s been a fire at the carnival. No one was hurt, but there’s still an investigation. Olivia has been sent to investigate the fire, but she’s no normal person. She actually was a titan, Mnemosyne, in fact. As she investigates more, she finds out that some of these things weren’t accidents. Someone wants to use Olivia and her powers. There’s a bet going on. The person who gets Olivia to go back to her divine ways wins. Will it happen?
What I liked
The idea of gods living every day lives is an intriguing concept. It reminds me of the book Gods Behaving Badly, just a little.
What I didn’t like
I’ve liked most of the Carniepunk stories, but this one isn’t one of my favorites. I felt that there should have been more to the story.
Maybe someone you know is a Greek god or goddess in hiding.
If you were divine, would you want to blend in among normal humans?
What do you think about the concept of the divine walking the Earth?
