Summary

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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

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. School Library Journal Teen Reviewer: Alexis C., age 18
Characteristically witty. Kirkus Reviews
Blood and gore abound in this mythological twist on magical realism. Booklist
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
“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. USA Today Happy Ever After Blog, "Must Read Romance"
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
