Sun God Seeks…Surrogate? by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
These books are really excellent quick reads! The writing style is zany and hilarious, the action has your pulse pounding, and the sizzle is off the charts!
This installment gives us a look into the life of a sun god. He's broody and obsessed with his work, but that isn't really the total package. Inside, he's a softie that is just wishing for life as a human, where he can fall in love and no longer have the burdens of saving humanity. So what changes everything? Cimil, of course. The wacky and unpredictable god has a hand in all things in these books, so it's no surprise that she orchestrates Kinich (the sun god) meeting his match in the form of Penelope. Penelope is just trying to save her mom from an unidentified illness. Along come Cimil, with a check in hand, sending Penelope off to meet her brother, in the guise of becoming a surrogate to bear his children.
Do things ever work as planned with Cimil? Not so much. There are midgets, sexy times, attacks, and running (lots of running). There's also the whole "impending apocalypse" thing that is looming over everyone's head. Through all this drama, though, we get to spend some quality time with the bunch of weirdos that make up the gods and their significant others (and the vampires, and demigods, who don't really fit in any other category). Oh, and we get some new species introductions, along with a killer cliffhanger. Will we ever get answers? Will we ever have a resolution to all these stories? Even without a firm HEA here, it was still a wicked ride. These books are awesome reads.
