Review: Wild Card by Jamie Wyman

Title: Wild Card
By: Jamie Wyman
My Copy: Ebook from Netgalley for Review
BookWhisperer Rating:

It was bad enough that gods gambled with human souls, but Catherine Sharp’s soul just had to be won by the Greek goddess of Discord, Eris. As if working a dead-end tech support job didn’t suck the life out of her as it was. Now, Cat finds herself performing random tasks for the goddess in her free time.

But when Coyote, the Native American trickster himself, claims to have won her own soul in Mayhem’s weekly poker game, Cat wants in on the action. With five sneaky gods upping the ante, Cat needs to find a way to collect the winning chips that could save her soul.
Marius, a handsome yet irritating satyr with his own debt to Eris, might finally come in handy for something. If they play their cards right and work together, Cat and Marius may just get their freedom back. If they don’t kill each other—or fall in love—first.
Wild Card was given to us here at The BookWhisperer through Netgalley for an honest review. This is the first time I have encountered any works by Jamie Wyman, and it was quite a variety of supernatural. It does take the reader a bit to get up to speed. With some many different species and talents I never knew what to expect. Her writing style is quite entertaining, and the her characters were funny and intriguing. It was a pleasurable read, but quite honestly nothing that would stand up and demand notice. I like the story line of this young woman that sold her soul for love, but it was nothing that forces emotions and attention. This is an entertaining easy adventure if you are just looking for something to run away with your mind for a bit.
