Dogs and Goddesses

3 Story - Anthology

I absolutely adored this book. Talk about the unlikely and magic in the mundane. Abby, Shar, and Daisy make for very unlikely goddesses in training and Kammani the most hysterical villain I've seen to date. Although I'm not the biggest fan of dogs, I have to admit that all the canine helpers in this book were a lot of fun. The summon itself of Kammani was rib-crackingly funny and Mina has to be the bossiest henchwoman ever. Abby's cookies and the clicky-pen were great touches on an already enchanting novel. My only complaint about this anthology is that it could have been much longer. I would have loved to learn more about Sam's life as a god-king and where Kammani came from and the world they lived in. I can't wait to set what other great stories these authors have written.
