Gods, demigods, and true romance?  Office Gods , based on the hit webcomic, is an addictive rom-com set in the corporate HQ of the Olympians themselves! 

Iris, a young human woman, is swept into the world of divine bureaucracy when she's recruited to work in the office of the gods, in the department of Hermes. The gods and goddesses may be beautiful beyond human comprehension, but she quickly learns that they're every bit as petty and quarrelsome as they were thousands of years ago. Can she survive Eros’ antics, Aphrodite’s temper, and getting caught between a love triangle with the demigod sons of Athena and Hades?


Office Gods Vol. 1 was an enjoyable opening volume in a new fantasy romance graphic novel series. The novel was visually pleasing and I enjoyed the story as Iris began her quest to navigate her new admin role in an office full of gods and goddesses. It's reasonably predictable, but that didn't spoil by enjoyment as I read through it, as the tropes were part of the fun. Perhaps this isn't a series I'd race out to buy, but it's one I could see myself continuing to read if the opportunity arose. I was interested enough by the final page to wonder what would befall Iris next. As such, I am giving it 4 stars. If you like fantasy romance that's trope-filled but fun, it's worth taking a look.

I received this book as a free eBook ARC via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.
