Humanless is a truly moving epic of a story in a manageable length. I simply adore the storyline, and the characters are utterly charming from the first page. There were numerous laugh out loud moments, as well as several that had me pondering who was who and what they were up to. There were also a few heavy sighs, and in the end, it is truly one of the most enjoyable novels I have read in a while. It is not like other tales told about Gods and human interactions; it is unique in its presentation and execution. This is a novel that mythology buffs will love, as well as romance addicts such as myself.
The whims of the Gods are fickle and often shallow. This is something Ares, one of the many sons of Zeus and Hera, has known all along, but he has never realized the depth of their shallowness until approached by Mama Hera for a very unsavory quest. He is reluctant to accept, yet has little choice in the matter. When he meets the cause of his mother’s fury, all things will suddenly become clear, and his heart is suddenly in jeopardy.

When Ava’s entire world begins to spin out of control and gods appear set on her destruction or salvation, depending on the god, what is a girl to do? Why, trust in the men around her to save her and her world from utter destruction, no matter who they may be.
The Gods are trying to kill her.
The Gods are trying to protect her.
