While I loved that all the characters were urban versions of the original Olympian gods/goddesses, this book's premise led me to believe there'd be more of that magic side of the gods. But there was almost none. It read more like a regular contemporary fantasy filled with rich folks, just set in a weird Olympus world where things are mysterious & unexplained. I think the most "magical" it got was the mention of Hera...and how it is more of a title than anything.
