    Tori is a lowly PI in the not-so glamorous world of Hollywood, following a case which becomes murder of an ancient sorceress.
    She never believed her grandmother's stories of their lineage, until gods start getting involved.
    Now she has Apollo -yes that one- after her, with Hermes being a smart a$$, and a mortal policeman becoming an interest. 
    The literary technique and storytelling are superb. Love interests tangle her investigation, becoming more than an chance to save herself, but all of Los Angeles.
    There are some minor details in the beginning, but every author has the 'new series' bumps. My greatest sorrow? That it wasn't longer.
    This reader is pleased.

    Great Read

    Don't you just love a clever book? I do, and I found one in Lucienne Diver's Bad Blood ~ Latter-Day Olympians, Book 1.

    Bad Blood is a delightful urban fantasy, a clever mix of Janet Evanovich and Rick Riordan, and a true Lucienne Diver original.

    P.I. Tori Karacis is as irreverent, irrepressible, and as entertaining as Evanovich's Plum, complete with eccentric grandmother and multiple love interests. However, Tori's bad boy wanna-be-lover is a god (small g). Literally. He's Apollo Demas (Olympian god Apollo) and he's as full of himself as you'd imagine a god would be. Tori's cop, almost-boyfriend, love interest is Detective Armani (no relation). And Tori has a larger skill set than Plum: looks, brains, and gorgon-blood talents like freezing others with a glance.

    The Olympian twist makes this book fresh, but Ms. Driver's sense of humor makes Bad Blood a keeper. The names of the characters alone is giggle worthy.

    Bad Blood is everything you want in a summer read. You'll love the quirky characters, find yourself absorbed in the plot, and rejoice in the fact that this is book one in the series.

    I've read other titles by Ms. Diver and was equally delighted. Lucienne Driver delivers.
