Title: 7 Deadly Roommates (Mean Gods #1)
Author: George Saoulidis
Narrator: Lavy Samo
When Horace gets fired from his dead-end job, an unexpected lady gives him the courage to stand up for himself. But will he manage to get his life back in order when seven strange women suddenly burst into his life and his home, when he has agreed to the terms of service without having read them, and when the game these women are playing ends up in either success or death?
Warning: 7 Deadly Roommates contains drug use, low inhibitions, bilingual cursing, British spelling, European political correctness, a ton of stuff given in the metric system, worship of made-up corporate gods, references to male and female body parts, drinking, abuse, attempted murder, polyamory, LGBT characters, diversity, representation of all body types, and the story of a guy who’s mixed up in a wicked game of sin.
This is probably the most interesting take on the 7 deadly sins that I’ve ever read. While this audiobook can be a little hard to follow at times, it essentially covers the story of Horace and how the 7 deadly sins, in the forms of women, help him get back on his feet. This book has dark themes, but it also has funny, heartwarming moments. It’s a real rollercoaster of emotions, and the perfect read for fans of urban fantasy.
I think my favorite part about the characterization of the deadly sins is that they weren’t “too out there.” They were relatable, and they were written well, sounding like the flaws of real people. Also, the ending caught me by surprise, but I won’t give any spoilers away.
This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
