Or the Roman Pantheon. Or some of the other old 'pagan' religions. The books are simply good fun and the magic is in line with what you are looking for. And of course, they are fantasy books. I suggest giving the first book a shot - it is short and reads fast, so even if it doesn't work for you, it's not a big investment.
    The old deities are my guides. I take their good name very seriously and do not take kindly to any slander against them. They are as serious to me as the Abrahamic God is to Christians, Muslims, and Jews. hence why the plot didn't sit well with me.
