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.
This is a full novel, 90,000 words. Book one of five in the Curse of the Gods Series

Good story but narrator should slow down
Would you listen to Trickery again? Why?
I would definitely listen to this again
What was one of the most memorable moments of Trickery?
I wouldn't say there was any one part that was entirely memorable, but it is still a good book
How did the narrator detract from the book?
She was really good with the various voice changes and handled the challenge of changing the tones of the 5 brothers well
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
There were a few moments that gave me the giggles and certainly a few shocks
Any additional comments?
My only grumble was the narration speed. The narrator sounded more like she was speed reading the story which made it hard to keep up on occasion and did spoil the effect of the story slightly.I tried reducing the playback speed but that just made it too slow

Wonderful wonderful wonderful
I loved this book, the storyline the characters the world!!! My only dislike was the lack of differentiation between the brothers. The narrator did not make a big enough difference between them.

WHAT WAS THAT!!!!
Ok first off I NEVER give things 5 stars. If I like it it gets 3. If I REALLY like it it gets 4. To get 5 stars I have to have loved it so much that the moment it's over I want to go replay it. THIS book is one of those rare finds. Honestly I just finished reading 2 series that were both 6 books long and fairly dark and I wanted something based in a different world that would put me in a good mood. I nearly skipped this book until I saw how nearly all the reviewers noted how funny it was. So I caved.
All that said, I loved the book. I had me laughing so hard at times that my sides hurt. :). The authors find a nice balance between humour and realistic consequences. The one down side to this book is that it IS the first in the series which means that most of the book is focused on world building and character development. Also, there are a LOT of characters to meet and get to know and at times you have to be careful or they begin to blur together. But there is a story told fully here and it sets a great foundation for the future books. I can't wait to see where the authors take the story from here but in the mean time, I'll probably be replaying this one a LOT.

Good storytelling with a kinky side!
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The storyline and voices were excellent. The main character seems to have been ripped off a comedy stage! She is very humorous with the associated insecurities you would expect from a young comedian. The relationships between the characters develop nicely with a very kinky undertone. One warning though -- if bad language makes you squeamish, you should probably skip this one (your loss though!)
