Gods Inc Series
Book Two

Book Description:
 
When you live in a world pullulating with gods, can you truly be an atheist? Well, yes…if you know a way to get rid them.
 
Mysantheos, a fanatic atheist at the head of a powerful lobby/terrorist organization, has created a weapon able to kill gods. All he needs is a disruptive figurehead to attract the masses. Goblin, who has just tried to supplant Queen Louhi as CEO of Gods Incorporated, has been deemed the right kind of unworthy. Mysantheos breaks him out of the Queen’s prison and the godslaughter begins.
 
As the divine bodies pile up, panicked gods blame the CEO Queen for Goblin’s escape. Resentment builds in the company and violent factions start pushing for the extermination of the human race. Will Queen Louhi’s Nerd Squad, a group of angry gods, and Richard (a down-on-his-luck private eye),  manage to find Mysantheos in time to prevent what promises to be the bloodiest conflict between men and god ever?
Excerpt:

“LET’S KILL ‘EM ALL!” YELLED MARS, presiding

in lieu of Jupiter.

Ahura-Mazda* sighed wearily. These young gods

were exasperating, and now that the meeting was in its

fiftieth year, there were always a few standing in for their

elders. Mars, always hot under the helmet, was one of the

worst.

He smoothed his long curly beard, rose and rearranged

his silken robes. “How many times must we explain this? We

tried that before. Does the Deluge ring a bell? And now we’re

back to square one. There has got to be a better way.”

“Not to mention how much work it was,” said Vishnu,

playing with his nose ring. “Exhausting! All that rain…and

then having to recreate everything.”

“Well, I for one wouldn’t mind getting a good storm on,”

said Thor. “It would be more interesting than this meeting.”

“You gods do what you want with your humans.” Inti’s

sun-disk crown of feathers was disarrayed from shaking his

head so much. “My believers are still faithful, and no one is

dumping a shitload of water on their heads.

 
About the Author:
 
Gabriele Russo, AKA Lucie-Gabrielle Jolicoeur-Rousseau, was born in Quebec City amidst a family of book lovers – her father had dreamed of being a writer and both of her brothers are published authors.
 
Since she earned her Bachelor’s in History, it was no surprise (except to her) that she ended up working in restaurants, eventually owning two, which almost drove her mad. She sold them and was nursed back to pseudo-sanity by Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchett.
 
That’s when she answered the family calling and decided to write. Armed with her ideas for the Gods Inc. series she went back to the University and got her Master’s in Creative Writing.
 
She now lives with her husband in Culpeper, Virginia, where she divides her time between painting, ripping apart and reconstructing her recently bought historical home, playing tennis and, of course, writing more books.
