What is it about?
(Blurb from GoodReads)
Everyone here wants us dead… and I don’t blame them.
The gods inside of us are dangerous. They seek power above all else. As we learn to use our supernatural abilities, we also have to learn how to control them.
Because the stronger we grow, the stronger the gods grow. And that’s terrifying.
The four boys who I loved in childhood have become gods alongside me. And while Loki, the trickster god inside of me, gets me into a lot of trouble, he’s also pushes me toward the men I care for.
My guys have gods of war, death, wisdom, and violence inside of them. Those gods are changing them too, into strong men capable of amazing things. But just like with me, it isn’t always a good thing. And at a reform school of paranormal creatures capable of frightening things, we have to be able to control ourselves or the consequences could be deadly.
This reform school is our last chance. If we fail here, I don’t want to know what they’ll do to us.
But it can’t be good.
Thoughts on Myths for Half-Wits
Our favorite reluctant and not so reluctant reborn Gods are back, and they’ve found more trouble in Book 2 than they ever thought of in Book 1.
Seeping Norse Lore instead of the more popular Greek or Roman Myths, we have a bevy of Supernatural delight roaming a quintet of young adults, each with their own powers, abilities and desires – and they don’t always mesh with the wants of the others, or their hosts. Odin/Wilder anyone? Fortunately, a few things get resolved, issues that bombed the pages in Book 1 are smoothed out, though quite a few new knots are formed and pushed into the fray. Family drama (and danger) abounds, from all sides! (Remember that mircofilm? What about Aiden?)
We also have the entire school out to get them… which, while on the surface seems horrifying, actually makes a lot of sense considering the powerhouses now encases in mortal (not so mortal?) flesh. The Gods aren’t so good, and everyone, especially the GodSlayers (yeah, they’re a thing), know it. It’s a nasty situation and these 5 are just struggling to catch up and to understand.

My Final Verdict on Myths for Half-Wits
I am not sure if I like this one better than Book 1, or not, but it DOES amp up the action and the tension exponentially. I was happy to get a few answers, though that cliffhanger is rather brutal, especially after everything that Izzy has gone through. Free on Kindle Unlimited.
