Desperately seeking the cause of their slow, miserable deaths, ancient deities Athena and Hermes are led to Cassandra, an ordinary girl who was once an extraordinary prophetess, protected and loved by a god.

Praise for Antigoddess…

Praise for Antigoddess

“Blake presents a gory, thrilling vision of the twilight of the gods, in all their pettiness and power, while letting readers draw their own messages and conclusions.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review

“This new series from one of the best up-and-coming horror/suspense writers around updates Greek mythology but offers far more than a Percy Jackson retread. Blake’s spunky and imaginative narrative illuminates the personalities of the gods, especially Athena, who’s gone a bit punk and is endowed with wry humor.... This edgy first installment maneuvers forces into position; readers will want to stay tuned.”—Kirkus Reviews

“The gods’ world, while contemporary, is violent and laced with bizarre circumstances and powers, but Cassandra’s is a normal adolescence in spite of her clairvoyance. It is Cassandra’s visions that align their two worlds, creating the series debut’s ultimate drama and tension, which promises to play out in subsequent Goddess War adventures.”—Booklist

“This is Kendare Blake we’re talking about, so people die, and there are terrible sacrifices. It's a great start and, of course, the cliffhanger ensures that I will be impatiently waiting for the sequel.”—USA Today
