A great first novel by S. Acevedo, God Awful Loser tells the tale of Cupid. Cupid has fallen from grace, has been banished from Olympus, and is about to be replaced by a new love-angel. Cupid meets up with a band of fallen angels and has to earn their trust to help him win back his spot as the god of love, while uncovering a plot to overthrow Olympus. Many characters from Roman mythology appear along the way. The story is set in modern times and bounces back and forth between Earth and Olympus. It's a fast paced, action packed story that was fun to read.

Aimed at young adults, I may not be the audience intended, but the book definitely held my interest to the very end. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0986320706, Hardcover)

Life's good at the top.
Until you're not.

The son of the God of War has it all, and the smooth-talking, jet-setting master knows it. The once chubby cherub now has adoring fans, a shiny red limousine, and a mansion nearly, almost, not quite big enough to hold his enormous and ever-growing ego.

But everything changes for the sloppy, ill-aiming love god when a meddling stranger challenges him for his crown. Not even the advice of his war-mongering father, Mars, and embarrassingly underdressed mother, Venus, can save Cupid from the skids. Facing enraged immortals, epic battles against hell's most vile creatures, and the dread of becoming mortal himself, Cupid teams up with an unlikely band of misfit fallen angels in the hopes of saving himself, the Olympic kingdom, and humans the world over. But can such an inept team of losers finally win when it counts?

Funny, rude, and planted smack in modern times, God Awful Loser is a new chapter on the ancient gods' bad and hugely entertaining choices. May we never follow in their footsteps.
