At Odds with the Gods

A Mythmatched/Purgatory Playhouse crossover story

The road to redemption is long, rough, and steep. Bring snacks.

Finn Lassiter is a werewolf without a pack. Or a roof over his head. Or more than five bucks to his name. He’s exhausted every lifeline except the one that makes him want to howl: begging his cousin, the supreme alpha, for charity. After the way Finn behaved for their entire lives, it’s entirely possible he’ll be turned down flat or banished forever when he makes that call tomorrow. So today he’s blowing his last dollar at Nectar & Ambrosia—he needs one more smile from the bakery’s beautiful owner to weather the bleak years ahead.

Ganymede, former cup bearer to the Greek gods, is reveling in his new life as a restaurateur in Portland, Oregon. He’s finally free of the Olympians and their extremelytedious menu options. Finn, the cute customer who’s haunted the corner table in his bakery since opening day, is just icing on the cake.

When the gods stage an encore, however, attempting to weasel out of their Fates-mandated atonement labors, Gany’s new livelihood isn’t the only thing at stake—Finn’s safety and freedom are at risk, too. Of course Gany invites Finn to stay with him until the danger passes! It would be irresponsible not to. Right?

Although with all the baggage he’s carrying from his past, that idea just might be only half-baked…

At Odds with the Gods is a friends-to-lovers Mythmatched/Purgatory Playhouse crossover featuring secrets on all sides, empowered former victims, misbehaving deities, three large, rambunctious pups, and cake. Lots and lots of cake.

Overall, a fun, fast-paced read set in this fantastic universe created by Ms. Russell. Gany and Finn were great, the puppies were adorable and I loved the cameos. I’ll be looking forward to more!

I absolutely loved this! I am a huge fan of both of these worlds by EJ Russell and this cross-over between the two was sublime! This quick read was just amazeballs. If you haven’t already, you must go read Purgatory Playhouse and the Mythmatched Universe books.

Raven Reads, Amazon reviewer

E.J. Russell has done it again. This story was sweet, and funny, and had me enthralled from the first sentence. Cute pets, loveable side characters, a wedding, and a HEA. This book had it all and more.
