I give this book 4 out of 5 stars

In this sequel to Oh My Gods, the gods have become concerned over Phoebe’s lack of control over her powers and decide she must attend goddess boot camp and then pass a test or else.  To add to the stress it turns out two of her counselors are her step-sister Stella and her boyfriend’s ex-girlfriend.  To top it all off Phoebe begins to suspect her boyfriend, Griffin, may be rekindling something with his ex-girlfriend.

Oh My Gods tied up so nicely that I was not sure what to expect from this sequel but it was just as much fun as the first book.  It was hilarious seeing the results of Phoebe’s attempts to use her powers.  Can you imagine if you even subconsciously wished for something and it came true with disastrous results?  That is basically what Phoebe is encountering which is unusual when most of the other descendants of the gods have trouble even initially accessing their powers.

Stella was a major surprise in this book.  We saw a hint that maybe she was not a total evil step-sister in book 1 but we get to see much more of her human side as she attempts to help Phoebe gain control over her powers.  The only disappointment for me was that everything ties up nicely in the end other than what happened to Phoebe’s father.  Still another great book to add to the series.  If you haven’t read Oh My Gods you should pick it up and then follow up right away with this sequel.
