Book Review: Trickery by Jaymin Eve (Curse of the Gods #1)

You have got to love the girl because she has got a mouth and man oh man don’t she know how to use it.I am going to be frank and say that I hadn’t heard about the book before and probably wouldn’t even have tried it. The book was a recommendation from my book god , Crimson and if she recommends I simply go for the book without any questions asked or even reading synopsis. Period.

Trickery by Jaymin Eve- Official Synopsis

Willa Knight: Dweller. Slave. Non-magical being.

In Minatsol, being a dweller means that you are literally no better than dirt. In fact, dirt might actually be more useful than Willa. Her life will be one of servitude to the sols, the magic-blessed beings who could one day be chosen to become gods.

At least her outer village is far removed from the cities of the sols, and she won’t ever be forced to present herself to them… Until one small mistake changes everything, and Willa is awarded a position to serve at Blesswood, the top sol academy in the world—a position that she definitely did not earn.

Under the sudden, watchful eye of the gods, she will be tasked to serve the Abcurse brothers, five sols built of arrogance, perfection and power. They are almost gods themselves, and under their service she is either going to end up sentenced to death, or else they are going to ruin her so badly that she will wish for it.

Either way, she is in trouble.

Trickery by Jaymin Eve- RWAT Take

Trickery by Jaymin EveWhen I was recommended the book I was told to watch out for the central character and I did. It was literally a laugh riot. The girl is hilarious and I would say that the author knows how to put humour in words.


The story may or may not be challenging depending upon your level of tolerance for young adult books. For me personally I was too busy laughing and shouting bravo for our central character that I could rarely pick any bones with the book.


The situation of a snarky and loud mouth girl landing in the company of a group of arrogant yet godly looking guys always ready to get into the ring for a fight is definitely a receipe for entertainment and fun.


The language has its ups and down and I won’t say it’s the best or the worst. I would say the language has its moments. The narration is good but the book stands for one thing and the only thing that will make you like the book. It’s the snarky and witty character of our female lead.



The book is funny and there are a whole lot of moments in the book that are both cute funny and absolutely adorable. It’s funny and for me that’s all I need to hear to dive into the book.
