Summary: Every 90 years, twelve Gods are brought back to live the lives of super-pop stars. Unfortunately, they only live for two years after their reincarnations are woken up. Not only do these teens know they’ll die in two years, they also experience drawbacks and drama as a result of their new powers and status. All Laura wants is to join their ranks, but when she befriends one who gets deep in the drama and intrigue, she finds she may have bitten off more than she can chew in trying to join these stars.

Review: I absolutely love this series. The character design is entertaining and audacious and the story is fantastic. Following regular Laura as she tries to figure out what exactly is going on with these Gods and help clear the name of her friend is a different perspective as she tries to figure out where she fits in both the regular world and the world of the Gods. My favorite character, though, is Inanna.

Recommendation: If you like Saga and comics based on Gods and mythology, I highly recommend this series!
