Summary

A riotous romp through Olympus with goddesses for the 21st century. When a new goddess moves to Ambrosia Lane, Hera decides she's finally had enough of her philandering husband. She offers herself and the crown of gods to Hades. Hades doesn't want the crown, but he'll take Hera. (Often and twice on Sunday.) He's a heartless bastard - having had Aphrodite rip it out so he'd stop loving Persephone after he set her free. Persephone is scheming to get back to Tartarus with the aid of Thanatos, who trips on his leather trench coat and falls in love with her. Thanatos' titan mother, Nyx thinks she's past all the drama until she turns up pregnant. Demeter has secrets of her own and the new goddess Abstinence lands in a steaming centaur pile when she falls for the King of the Gods himself whose own dark needs could tear them apart. Come along for the ride as these goddesses take control of their Fate (or so they think) and find their happily ever afters.

Saranna DeWylde may now be one of my new fav's

What did you love best about Desperate Housewives of Olympus?

First I have to say I listened to "Ride of the Darkyrie" which was an amazing par-normal novel. Since I enjoy Hollie Jackson's narrations on many books I had a feeling these would be exceptional. I wasn't wrong. Desperate Housewives of Olympus was FUNNY, Thought provoking, and really put a spin on those crazy Olympians. I think those goddess were really just waiting for a chance to push their way past those bossy gods.......

What other book might you compare Desperate Housewives of Olympus to and why?

Can't really compare to another book but maybe another author. A cross between Molly Harper and Charlaine Harris. If you enjoy either of these authors I think you'll enjoy Saranna DeWylde.

Which scene was your favorite?

One of my favorites and there are many, is when Abstinence is first visited by Zeus. I laughed out loud.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Lots of catharsis for many of the characters and many laughs as well.I like the fact that the characters do actually learn something about themselves and maybe grow a bit.

Any additional comments?

I'm looking forward to listening to more of these stories. Saranna DeWylde has a flair for writing humor and story lines that really are quite useful when you realize even the "gods" have relationship problems.
