This week's book is Antigoddess by Kendare Blake, who wrote the chillingly delightful Anna Dressed in Blood and its sequel Girl of Nightmares.
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.
Kendare will be at the Mukilteo Library on Monday November 4th at 3:30pm, as one of our National Novel Writing Month guest authors!
