PERFECT. AMAZING. INCREDIBLE.

An okay read. I really enjoyed 'Anna dressed in blood' but this title was not as good as that series. It was also kinda graphic with the violence description which I felt was a little unnecessary and the characters were not very smart.

first in a series called Goddess War
Readers are taken into a world where gods and goddesses live among us. One day the gods start to get sick, these are immortals that are finding out that they are not immortal after all. Athena and Hermes travel the world to gather allies and they meet enimies. These gods need to find the cause of their slow deaths. Then we are introduced to Cassandra and ordinary girl who does not believe in gods and myths but she just might be the key.

I enjoyed reading this book although parts of it made me cringe. The gods are dying and are trying to find a way to save themselves. There are a few reincarnated characters as well. A good mix of past and present.

there's been so many Greek retellings these days, and not all are written this fabulously. this had a fresh new twist and it was just so dang interesting. read it, I dare you.

Kendare Blake knows how to tell a story, and a pretty good one at that. Homeric knowledge of the Greek gods is not required, but it's nice to get the few winks/nods if you have. Characters and plot are the forefront of this novel, making it fairly fast-paced and compelling. Like Anna Dressed in Blood and Girl of Nightmares, there's plenty of gore, but none of it felt unnecessary. She also knows how to end a book well, especially since it's part of a projected series. I'll be back not because there's a cliff-hanger ending, but because her characters are compelling, as is the world only briefly sketched in Antigoddess. Recommended.
