Review of The Forgotten Gods Counseling Group By LD Hutchinson

Aetina is the Greek Goddess of War, Darkness and Hate. She's the Daughter of Zeus and Nyx, the only problem is she was never included as one of the worshipped Gods. Not even among the minor ones. She was all but forgotten like many others that she has met over the course of the last three hundred and fifty years.
After talking to Sjorn, the Norse God of Pain and Fertility, she's finally talked into going to the New York offices of Mental Health where she meets Chi, the Chinese Goddess of Wisdom, another of the forgotten Gods.
Chi tells her of the Forgotten Gods Counseling Group and that many of them attend and join in. The number alone surprises Aetina and gives her the push she has needed to finally say that she'll gladly be a part of the group and see if it can help her.
Things almost instantly get a little weird though; Zeus and Nyx start fighting and try to get her to take sides. Aphrodite wants her head on a platter and the Demi Gods are showing up everywhere.
But, even that's only the tip of the iceberg. Ichi, a Japanese God, has decided to create havoc amongst the humans for forgetting him.
Now the God's are coming out to help and trying to stop the madness before it's too late.
If only Aetina could just get one day of peace…

This was a quick read... my only complaint is that I wasn't able to read it all in one sitting. My boys are very demanding of my time!!!  

When I received this book, I was intrigued.   I love greek mythology and the different Gods, so I couldn't wait to see what this book was about!!  

This story is about Aetina, who is a forgotten God.  Also, she is hiding from her sister Aphrodite who wants to kill her.  She is in the body of a human, pretending to be human and live a human life.  Her best friend Sjorn, the Norse God of Pain and Fertility introduces her to a Forgotten Gods support group so to speak.  He introduces her to Chi, the Chinese Goddess of Wisdom, who leads these groups with the different forgotten Gods. It makes her a little better about her life, because she isn't alone out there in the human world.  

Soon, she is discovered by a forgotten God hired by her sister.  She knows this guy will stop at nothing to kill her, and will do anything to get to her.  Sjorn stays with her to protect her, but after leaving her for only minutes, Ichi, a forgotten Japanese God, finds her.  After thinking that Aphrodite will succeed in killing Aetina, he decides he's going to wreck have amongest the human race. His revenge for the human forgetting who he is.  Her father, Zeus comes to her aid when she least expects it, and she it is then, she realizes the Gods are doing their very best to destroy Ichi.

While she's trying to stop Ichi, she realizes that those she met at the Counselling group meetings turn out to be her true friends.  Sjorn helps her recover from injuries with her fight with Ichi, and shows his true feelings towards her. 

Even though it was a quick read, I found it a very cute story!  The fight between Ichi and the Gods was quick, but it got to the point. I loved reading about the different Gods, as I've always been fascinated with them!!  


About The Author:
L. D. Hutchinson was born and raised in Uniontown, Pennsylvania. She's been writing since she was able to hold a pencil in her hands and form words and drawing since about the same time. Her love for reading books came when she was about eight years old and she picked up her first book. A Novel titled 'Hawkson' that's gone down as one of her favorite stories. Though she reads books such and Sherrilyn Kenoyon's Dark Hunter's series, Julie Kagawa's Iron Fey series (Which she is a huge fan of.) P.C. and Kristin Cast's House of Night and many more.
Most of her books have been influenced from the many things she's read and watched over the years. Her favorite thing to do other than write and draw and even design her own book covers as well as other's is sit down and veg out to play some video games. It's one of her favorite passion's she'd never give up.
You can catch her with her nose pressed up in the newest comic or manga she finds or a good novel if not there then on Photoshop, or playing videogame and trying to beat top scores again.
Due to that she was published with Midnight Hour Publishing where she publishes all her works into the world. May they be YA, Adult or anything in between!
