The Goddess War begins in Antigoddess, the first installment of the new series by acclaimed author of Anna Dressed in Blood, Kendare Blake.
Old Gods never die…
so Athena thought. But then the feathers started sprouting beneath her
skin, invading her lungs like a strange cancer, and Hermes showed up
with a fever eating away his flesh. So much for living a quiet eternity
in perpetual health.
Desperately seeking the cause of their slow,
miserable deaths, Athena and Hermes travel the world, gathering allies
and discovering enemies both new and old. Their search leads them to
Cassandra—an ordinary girl who was once an extraordinary prophetess,
protected and loved by a god.
These days, Cassandra doesn’t
involve herself in the business of gods—in fact, she doesn’t even know
they exist. But she could be the key in a war that is only just
Because Hera, the queen of the gods, has aligned
herself with other of the ancient Olympians, who are killing off rivals
in an attempt to prolong their own lives. But these anti-gods have
become corrupted in their desperation to survive, horrific caricatures
of their former glory. Athena will need every advantage she can get,
because immortals don’t just flicker out.
Every one of them dies
in their own way. Some choke on feathers. Others become monsters. All
of them rage against their last breath.
The Goddess War is about to begin.
