Weekend Book Giveaway: Antigoddess

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!

My favorite mythology figure is Athena because i love how she is independent and a fighter.
