Giveaway: The Immortals


Happy Friday Everyone!

In celebration of the fact that this week is over (who's ready for a couple days off? *raises both hands*), I have a fantastic giveaway to share with you all today! One of my very favorite things to read about is Greek mythology, so I of course pounce on on any and every book I come across that features it. As soon as I saw The Immortals I knew instantly that it was a "me" kind of book.

Tell me you aren't intrigued after reading this synopsis:
Manhattan has many secrets. Some are older than the city itself.

The city sleeps. Selene DiSilva walks her dog along the banks of the Hudson. She is alone—just the way she likes it. She doesn't believe in friends, and she doesn't speak to her family. Most of them are simply too dangerous.

In the predawn calm, Selene finds the body of a young woman washed ashore, gruesomely mutilated and wreathed in laurel. Her ancient rage returns. And so does the memory of a promise she made long ago—when her name was Artemis.

ARTEMIS! I can't wait to read Ms. Brodsky's version of this particular goddess and find out how Artemis deals with whomever killed and mutilated the young woman. Ancient vengeance unleashed in Manhattan? Yes please!

If you want to read more, you can check out an excerpt from chapter one here!

  2. Ooooh, a new take on Greek mythology!! I love the sound of it! Not many books have Artemis in a major role, let alone being the main character!

    Thank you for putting this one on my radar, Jenny!

  8. I SO want that shirt! As for the giveaway question, I'm not sure who is my favorite. It kind of depends on the story and how it's being told. I tend to change my mind a lot on who I like and dislike.

  13. In my younger days probably Dionysus, lately it's been tempered to the more mild-mannered Apollo.

  14. I like Apollo--mostly because he is the god of music and I play the flute.

  16. Def Eros and Psyche!! I don't think their story counts as canon to the Greek god myths though.
