Age of Anansi (Pantheon Series) by James Lovegrove

Dion Yeboah leads an orderly, disciplined life... until the day the spider appears. What looks like an ordinary arachnid turns out to be Anansi, the trickster god of African legend, and its arrival throws Dion’s existence into chaos. Dion’s already impressive legal brain is sharpened. He becomes nimbler-witted and more ruthless, able to manipulate and deceive like never before, both in and out of court. He has been transformed into Anansi’s avatar on earth. then he discovers the price he has to pay for his new-found skills: he must travel to America and take part in a contest between avatars of all the other trickster gods. It’s a life-or-death battle of wits, full of skulduggery and double-cross. At the end, only one will be left standing.

This is my first read by this author and I hope it isn't his best. It was less than 80 pages, skimped on the background stories of all the trickster gods- which would have been its saving grace for me- and seemed more like a summary of events than a real book should be. Very few details on anything. Yah, the tricks are cute,but again childish. The ending was very predictable...all in all a disappointing read that I finished only hoping it would get better. May be more suited to an elementary/middle school library.
