Overview

Greek mythology with a humorous modern-day facelift.

Thanks to the deities in her family tree, Romi has been enslaved to a life of larceny since birth. Well, except for one night when the goddess of love and debauchery sprang her from her prison, slipped her some sort of magical roofie, and introduced her to an irresistible blacksmith for a tryst resulting in a child. It's been four years and Romi would like to find the mysterious blacksmith and introduce him to their son, so when two powerful gods offer to free her, she jumps at the opportunity.

All she has to do is blow on a magical sword and imbue it with luck. But when the same gods use the sword to overthrow Zeus, Romi's son is kidnapped. Now she'll need the help of her blacksmith fling and teenage griffin sidekick to return Zeus to power and get her child back.

Editorial Reviews

Darra Hulsart
"We try to read something different every once and a while. Lucky Blow was just that. A original story that I would cannot compare the plot to other books I have read. Truly loved this book.

The characters are all over the place. Good, bad and awful. So many different Gods that I feel that I was relearning them all and what they did to each other. Loved that! The Gods are so interesting themselves, adding Romi and what she endures made the book even better."
