God Awful Thief – Book 2 in the award-winning God Awful Series

Cupid’s back and at the top of his game.

The always adored – and now restored – God of Love has a new look, a new attitude, and even a steady girlfriend. With his humiliating dethronement and harrowing banishment behind him, Cupid wants nothing more than to settle in to a comfortable immortality.

But someone has dreamed up a different plan.

With a sea god setting the oceans against him, a drama-loving hanger-on refusing to go away, and the king of the gods ordering Cupid to steal the most powerful relic ever made by the most cunning god ever angered, Cupid and his leading lady, Tamara, must join a new cast and crew to face their most challenging mission yet. The stage is set for an epic performance, but just who is writing this script? And will Cupid and his troupe figure it out before they lose their minds – and quite possibly their lives?

God Awful Thief brings new hilarity and an ever-expanding cast of fickle gods to Cupid’s misadventures, potential tragedies, and everlasting comedies. God Awful Thief is the second act in the God Awful Series of Books.

“An impressively imaginative, extraordinarily witty, and exceptionally talented novelist, Ms. Acevedo continues to provide an expanding parade of fickle gods entwined with Cupid’s misadventures, potential tragedies, and everlasting comedies in her ‘God Awful’ series. An inherently riveting read from beginning to end, “God Awful Thief” is very highly recommended for personal reading lists as well as community library Fantasy Fiction collections.”

“The second book in this delightful series is again a laugh-out-loud, entertaining tale that brings in new characters as well as our favorites from the first novel. The introduction of the sassy narrator Bacchus is brilliantly funny as his love of drama interweaves the fast-paced action as we follow Cupid on a perilous mission with more twists and turns for the reader to enjoy.”

“It is sad when you wait for a book and read it too fast and then you have to wait yet again because you devour it. Just like the first book, God Awful Loser, I love the Roman gods and characters. Too often is the Greeks we read about and not the Romans. Bacchus’ point of view was hilarious. Another fun story about Cupid with (spoiler removed) being the bad guy. And now I wait for the next book in the series. Very few books have caused me to giggle out loud. This one does! I wish there were more writers like Acevedo who write YA books that adults enjoy.”

“While watching my nephews, and other than helping them in various activities, I once again finished the book in about 6 hours. Loved the story from Bacchus’ point of view but with the reading of Cupids thoughts kept me connected to the original character. Built the story in a solid paced fashion with twists and turns throughout this crazy adventure. Passionately bringing old annoying and underappreciated characters out into the open with hidden strength and courageousness just waiting for the right opportunity. I thoroughly enjoyed the sequel to one of my new favorite books and can’t wait for more. I’m even more excited to read this than any of the new Rick Riordan books coming out.”
