Audiobook Review: Damaged Gods. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Damaged Gods by K.C. Cross

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

If you have been stuck in a curse with monsters, they might as well be sexy monsters.


When I answered an ad for a caretaker at Saint Mark’s Sanctuary I thought I’d be dusting chandeliers and polishing floors. I didn’t expect to be tricked into a curse, going in debt to a monster, and being forced to take a self-paced “let’s learn magic”course so I can fix a 2,000-year-old problem.


And that monster? Not your ordinary, everyday beast. He has hooves, and horns, and fur on his legs. But ya know where he doesn’t have fur? Yeah. There. Which is fine. Except he doesn’t wear pants.


Nothing at Saint Mark’s is exactly what it seems. The entire inside is magic, the hallways upstairs are nothing but parties from the past, and the super-hot guy who lives in the dungeon? Yeah. Not human.


My name is Pie and all I want is to be a normal girl with an average life. I refuse to get stuck in this curse. I refuse to learn magic to break it. And there is no way in hell I will fall in love with a monster. Famous. Last. Words.

Damaged Gods

I want more of this series!

The heroine(s): Pie – she never knew her father and was abandoned as a young child by her mother when she wouldn’t admit her best friend Pia (a talking bird that only she could see) wasn’t real. She was institutionalized and diagnosed as a schizophrenic at six years old. Once she learned to lie, she grew up in foster care.

The Hero: Pell – a Saytr Chimera (half man, half satyr). He is the Monster of St. Marks. He is thousands of years old and has been cursed by the old gods who were at war with each other. He is stuck at St. Marks and needs a caretaker (slave) to serve him and help break the curse.

The Story: Pie is on the road and leaves a college halloween party she stopped at along the way, still dressed as a naughty schoolgirl when she sees a bulletin at a gas station for a job as caretaker at St. Marks Sanctuary. Her “imaginary” bird Pia has a bad feeling about it, but Pie insists on applying for the job.

Things I liked:
* Grumpy monster hero with a big package
* Spunky heroine who doesn’t take any gruff
* Ability to write the word “money” on a piece of paper and buy things
* Rooms that open to different worlds
* Hookah truth or dare
* Gods
* Monsters
* Curse
* Magic

The narration was done by Jason Clarke and Hathaway Lee and they do a great job. I have said it before but I love Jason Clarke’s deep sexy voice and Hathaway Lee did a fine job as the plucky young woman who is Pie Vita.

There are a bunch of awesome and whimsical characters in this book. Aside from Pie, Pell and Pia, There is Grant (the former caretaker), Russ Roth (the local sheriff), Thomas (the sexy guy who also lives at the sanctuary), and Tarq (Pell’s best friend, a Minotaur) who is also cursed and trapped at St. Marks.

The story is super steamy, utterly engaging and wonderfully whimsical. There is magic, mystery and a whole lot of fun. I definitely want more of this series. I want tales of all the magical and cursed creatures of St. Marks sanctuary.
