Gods Behaving Badly by Marie Phillips

godsI happen to not like the cover of this book, but Mary lynn thinks it is super. Sort of Victorian S&Mish.  The premise is that the Greek gods are living in modern day London, some working jobs, others not.  Just like in Greek myths they are selfish, greedy, have a lot of sex with each other, could not care less about mortals, and although their powers are waning, they do still wield quite a bit.  When a meek mortal ends up involved with them (as a pawn in a nasty spat between two of them) things escalate until the world is in danger of ending.  I really liked this!
