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…

 

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.

COIN TOSS
It was an odd little scene, a pocket of stillness in the middle of the cafeteria shuffle and noise: two boys at a corner table, watching a silver coin flip end over end. The girl across from them called it in the air, “Heads” or “Tails,” her voice indicating it was far less interesting than their bug eyes suggested. She’d called it correctly thirteen times in a row. She could’ve called it a hundred more.
“How are you doing this?”
“Magic,” Cassandra Weaver replied.

Praise for Antigoddess

PRAISE FOR ANTIGODDESS

"This new series from one of the best up-and-coming horror/suspense writers around updated Greek mythology but offers far more than Percy Jackson retread.  This edgy first installment maneuvers forces into position; readers will want to stay tuned." - Kirkus

"Antigoddess is a riveting and chilling horror thriller that deftly blends ancient legends with modern horrors.  Highly recommended." - Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of Fire & Ash and Extinction Machine

PRAISE FOR ANNA DRESSED IN BLOOD

“At once as eerie and terrible as it is sad and romantic, Anna Dressed in Blood is not your normal ghost story. […] This captivating story pulls no punches, making for a breathless read that lingers in the imagination long after the last page is turned.”
NPR

 

Anna Dressed in Blood is a dark and intricate tale, with a hero who kills the dead but is half in love with death himself. By the end of the book, you will be too. Spellbinding and romantic.”
—Cassandra Clare, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Mortal Instruments series

“Abundantly original, marvelously inventive and enormous fun, this can stand alongside the best horror fiction out there. We demand sequels.”
Kirkus Reviews, starred review

 

“It's the old boy meets girl story, if the boy is a wry, self-destructive ghost-hunter bent on avenging his father and the girl is a homicidal ghost trapped in a house full of everyone she's ever murdered. Needless to say, Cas and Anna are my new favorite twosome. When I got to the last page, I flipped back to the first.”
—Holly Black, New York Times bestselling author of Red Glove


“Just when readers think they’ve reached the denouement, Blake propels the plot in new and unexpected directions. [A] love story, a high-school buddy story, a story of revenge and tragedy, and a bildungsroman.”
School Library Journal, starred review
