Review: Accidentally in Love with a God by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff

There is truth in the saying don’t judge a book by its cover.  This book is the perfect example.  I came across Mimi Jean Pamfiloff’s Accidentally in Love with a God several times while looking for something to read.  Finally, I figured I would give the book a try.  The price was right and I had the urge to try a completely different author than I am used to reading.  I was very pleasantly surprised.  This book had everything from mythological Gods and creatures to suspense and adventure and you can even throw a little sex in there too.

Accidentally in Love with a God begins with Votan (a God) chasing after his sister Cimil (another God).  He ends up falling into a trap and gets stuck in a limbo of sorts.  After centuries of being stuck in this limbo he realizes he can communicate with someone.  That someone happens to be Emma.  All of Emma’s life she though she was crazy because she heard a voice in her head.  That voice (Guy/Votan) tries to protect her and even urge her to come free him.  Emma doesn’t realize that Guy/Votan is really a trapped God until after an untimely accident.  Emma finally relents to Votan’s incessant pushing and travels to South America to see if she can find where Votan is trapped.  Emma finds where Votan is being trapped even while being chased by the Uchban, who want to kill her.  Once freed Votan and Emma’s roller coaster ride only gets crazier.  You add in some more Gods, God/human experimentation and the possibility to destroy the world and you get one really good book.

I was very impressed by Ms. Pamfiloff’s debut book.  The story really made an impression and she definitely makes me want to continue on with her series.  Her writing is very witty and catchy.  I literally laughed out loud with some of the dialogue between Guy/Votan and Emma, especially the arguments when he is in her head.  I have indeed read the next book in the series Accidentally Married to a Vampire and again the cover is deceptive.  You would think that because the cover lacks serious appeal that the writing would follow suit.  I really feel for Ms. Pamfiloff.  I think she got slighted by her publisher when they picked the covers for her books.  I suggest to all of you out there learn as I have…don’t judge a book by its cover because you could really miss out on something good!

    I think I’d tend to gaze at the cover a lot – that said, it does look like a trashy romance cover!

      I think your right. It does look like a trashy romance cover, but the story is so much better. Its just a shame the publisher decided to put that kind of look on the story. I’ve read much trashier novels that have less cheesy romance covers. 🙂
