As ancient immortals are left reeling, a modern Athena and Hermes search the world for answers in Mortal Gods, the second Goddess War novel by Kendare Blake, acclaimed author of Anna Dressed in Blood.
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.

Review:

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 Reviews "

""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. This captivating story pulls no punches, making for a breathless read that lingers in the imagination long after the last page is turned."--NPR

"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

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

Praise for "Mortal Gods
""Why you should read it: Kendare is a new author to watch out for. I loved the "Anna Dressed in Blood" series, and "Antigoddess" was just fantastic. "Mortal Gods" picks up right where we left off, and the mythology is just as interesting and unique. Cassandra is fantastic, though my favorite is still Athena. The violence and action scenes are juicy, and I have to say every secondary character is developed and done well, even those who died. And the ending All I can say is that I can't wait for "Ungodly.""--"USA Today" Happy Ever After Blog, "Must Read Romance"
"Like the previous installment, the author expertly brings these ancient characters into the modern world and provides a fun story for readers who enjoy the supernatural, swordfighting, and larger-than-life heroes and heroines."--"School Library Journal
"
"Forewarning: this book is not for the squeamish; it thrives on gore and dark subject matter. But what else would you expect when reading about the death of gods? This book is beautifully written, with tons of suspense and a touch of romance. I loved "Antigoddess," the first book in the series, and "Mortal Gods" lived up to the high expectations I had set for it. The way irony is used in this series is what makes it so unique. Blake's combination of irony and Greek mythology makes for a thought-provoking read. Fans of Kendare Blake's first series, "Anna Dressed in Blood," are going to love this one. Just as dark and gory as its predecessor, the Goddess War series is a must-read."--"School Library Journal" Teen Reviewer: Alexis C., age 18
