Old Gods never die…
Or 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 beginning.
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.

Wish it was September already! I cannot wait to read Antigoddess :D Think it sounds amazing. And, just sigh. I adore Kendare so much, and I loved her Anna books. <3 They were just so perfect. I cannot wait to read this and see how amazing it is. Can't wait to get to know Cassandra :) And the awesome plot.
What are you waiting for?
I love a book with Greek Gods in it - just finished Goddess by Josephine Angelini a few days ago! http://bookblather.wordpress.com/2013/05/29/book-review-goddess-by-josephine-angelini/ReplyDelete
I love Greek mythology! And I'm really looking forward to this too. Wasn't a huge fan of Anna, but I think I will really like this one. Great pick :DReplyDelete

Ah! you know how I adore Kendare. Great pick CarinaReplyDelete
Love Kendare's writing! excited about this one!ReplyDelete
I admit to mixed feelings about gods and goddesses in YA. Not that I've read many of them, but I just think it'd be difficult to pull off! BUT I loved Girl of Nightmares, so if anyone can pull this off, it's Kendare! Great pick. :)ReplyDelete
