Review: Hounded

Hounded - Kevin Hearne

I've tried to start this book a few times now but keep losing interest. It doesn't help that most of the characters are Gods (e.g. Morrigan, Loki, Coyote, and various Greek/Roman and Pagan deities). I have trouble connecting with the way 'Gods' are written in a lot of PNR/UF. They are only ever motivated by jealousy, arrogance or mischievousness and have the moral compass of a 5 year old. I just find these books lack a real reason for the drama. It's all manufactured by these whimsical idiots. The main character didn't draw me in enough to get over my initial misgivings. But I only got a chapter or two in so I haven't given it much of a chance.
