One from my to be read list..at long last
The writing is very quirky, but then again, so is the fictional situation. Think of modern day London, think of the Tinkerbell potential death scene in Peter Pan, and you get the idea.
The ancient Greek gods are now living in central London, there are less and less people believing in them, so their power is diminishing. Into this mix walks "human" Alice...freelance cleaner...employed by Artemis...from there things go slightly off kilter.
The fact that that the human heroine is called Alice...and escapes.....unscathed from her adventures also has echos of Alice in Wonderland.
A hugely enjoyable novel.
If I say much more it might reveal the plot....this book is worth reading.
