Oh. My. Gods. Review

Goddess Boot Camp
by Tera Lynn Childs

This is the second book in Oh. My. Gods. Series. If you have not read the first in this series, this review might have spoilers. If you have not read the first book in this series...you can read my review here.

PJVs QUICKIE POV: Keeping in line with the first novel, Goddess Boot Camp is a good follow-up. Just as the title and cover portray this is a candy-sweet YA full of happy "be-true-to-yourself" messages and kissy-kissy feel goodness. A charming novel to pass the time, it is highly entertaining and a book I would pass along to a friend.

REVIEW: Phoebe is still basking in the after-glow of her new found relationship with Griffin and the discovery that she is Nike's descendant and in possession of a certain set of godly powers. Mastering those powers is another problem in and of itself, especially when her emotions run high. When she accidentally floods her room, dresses her step-sister in birthday cake attire - and forces the entire school to flee a pack of lions the gods decide to intervene. Phoebe needs to master her powers, because she will be tested by the gods - and failure is not an option.

How to master those powers? Goddess Boot Camp of course.

I actually think I liked this one better than the first one. The characters seemed to mature a bit, and with the culmination of the "discovery" out of the way - and now the impeding test on the horizon it gave a focus, instead of a mystery. There were a few side-plotted mysteries in this, but they were vague enough that I didn't guess them and made sense once they were revealed. Well 1 out of 2 did. I still never understood the whole Griffin/Adara thing. What exactly was going on there??

Like the first, this one is lightly, entertaining, but lacked a depth that I usually like in my novels. Some would say this was the YA voice, but I've read many a YA novel that had a sugar-sweet tone, but had an intensity of plot and depth of character that grounded it and made it a satisfying read. This series, doesn't have that depth.

RECOMMENDATIONS: Fans of the lighter side of the paranormal should really enjoy. I place this one in the category with books like I'd Tell You I Love You But Then I'd Have to Kill You & As You Wish.
