I really enjoyed the set up of this world and the characters. What drew me into this story was the title..... and curious to read. SO glad I did. I really enjoyed reading about Karma, her family, the talking goat (was great) and how the story unfolds. Keen for book #2. Highly recommend.
A Name like Karma is the first book in the Secret Gods series. It’s a unique story line, well written, perfect pacing and wonderful character development. I’m really excited to read the next book in the series and see where this story goes.
A Name Like Karma is the first in its series, it’s a slow burn fantasy RH romance with a cliffhanger ending.
This book is a good start we are introduced to some really well rounded characters. Karma (FMC) has a big heart but hides behind an armour of sarcasm and sass, Killian the humorous one that sees everything, Seth his twin brother that feels deep and long and Storm the leader that is trying to make up for his past mistakes/indecisions. Their group dynamic is intriguing as this is a RH however there is an underlying competitiveness between the males; they are cordial to each, friendly even but when it comes to Karma they become possessive neanderthals. As it’s a slow burn I foresee their relationship grow and change in future sequels.
The plot is fantastic though; Karma is assigned to deliver bad karma to someone and obviously things go wrong and she ends up accidentally killing them thus ending up with the twins of justice and being thrown in prison to die and be forgotten. She’s been set up and framed but what for we are yet to find out. She will become a commodity buts she doesn’t understand why she’s ended up in such a massive mess. It’s her hope that she can escape prison and find out hopefully the twins and Storm can help her.
The book is filled with magic, the starting of an epic romance and a mystery to be solved what’s not to like.
G. Bailey has stepped it up with the first book in her new series A Name Like Karma - The Secret Gods Series.
This reverse harem series, is an amazing story with a new God that hasn’t been explored before (or at least I haven’t seen), the Goddess of Karma. With a name the same as her job, Karma Maria Kismet and her family are the gods of karma - both good and bad, but Karma prefers the bad kind.
With a necklace of lucky charms and an anklet for a few of the less important charms, her jobs are never dull. Unfortunately one job leads her into a world of trouble.
For those of you who believe in karma, this is definitely a story for you.
A Name Like Karma has such an amazing ending, that it left me wanting to read A Name Like Justice immediately. I highly recommend the beginning to The Secrets Gods Series.
I am obsessed with all that G. Bailey writes and this one was just as awesome! The MC is a freaking Karma Goddess for one (this to my knowledge hasn't been done before), she has a pet goblin, a great family, the best friend, three hot guys vying for her attention, oh and the propensity for bad luck. The storyline is epic and has you laughing, rooting for characters and saying 'oh damn' to plot twists. STORM just come to mumma, that's all I want. We, the readers are left on the edge of our seats with the cliffhanger to this book and so I cannot wait until the next one!
In 5 words: Seriously good story worth reading. This book is a great mix of lighthearted humour and well thought out drama. Overall its’ great characters, interpersonal dynamics and interesting fantasy world create an engaging read. The style of writing is consistent with G. Bailey’s other works; so if you have enjoyed previous books then A Name Like Karma is for you. Didn’t give it full 5 stars as it ends on a ‘cliff hanger’ and reads more like the first third of a story instead of a standalone novel. If you keep this in mind you should enjoy it nonetheless.
G Bailey has yet again created an amazing world and characters. As a lover of myths and legends and God's and goddesses this book was right up my alley. An intriguing story that keeps you reading and wanting to know what will happen next. Great tension! Love, love, loved it!
