Ares, God of War, is leading the other dying gods into battle. Which is just fine with Athena. She's ready to wage a war of her own, and she's never liked him anyway. If Athena is lucky, the winning gods will have their immortality restored. If not, at least she'll have killed the bloody lot of them, and she and Hermes can die in peace. Cassandra Weaver is a weapon of fate. The girl who kills gods. But all she wants is for the god she loved and lost to return to life. If she can't have that, then the other gods will burn, starting with his murderer, Aphrodite. The alliance between Cassandra and Athena is fragile. Cassandra suspects Athena lacks the will to truly kill her own family. And Athena fears that Cassandra's hate will get them ALL killed. The war takes them across the globe, searching for lost gods, old enemies, and Achilles, the greatest warrior the world has ever seen. As the struggle escalates, Athena and Cassandra must find a way to work together. Because if they can't, fates far worse than death await...
"They'd have to bend their heads to go inside. 
"It isn't much," he said. The wind from inside was cold, and spoke of large, black caverns.
Aphrodite squeezed his hand, and they went in."--Mortal Gods by Kendare Blake
Comments: Mortal Gods was the first book I've read by Kendare Blake. It was a fun read.

  1. I've never read anything by this author despite attending a signing and buying all of the books that existed at that time. Maybe one day I'll get to that part of my TBR mountain. This week I'm reading Poisoned Blade by Kate Elliott. Happy reading!

  8. I've only read Kendare Blake's Anna duology (and didn't like it that much), but the synopsis really intrigued me! I haven't read a book based on mythology in quite a while!

  11. The author seemed familiar then I saw on the cover she wrote 'Anna Dressed in Blood" which is a book I heard a lot about. May have to add this to my TBR. I haven't read something like this in a while. Thanks for sharing!!
