The Goddess War begins in Antigoddess, the first installment of the new series by acclaimed author of Anna Dressed in Blood, Kendare Blake. 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.  Because Hera, the queen of the gods, has aligned herself with other of the ancient Olympians, who are killing off rivals in an attempt to prolong their own lives. But these anti-gods have become corrupted in their desperation to survive, horrific caricatures of their former glory. Athena will need every advantage she can get, because immortals don’t just flicker out.  Every one of them dies in their own way. Some choke on feathers. Others become monsters. All of them rage against their last breath. The Goddess War is about to begin.

I really don't know whether to give this three or four stars. On the one hand, the first few chapters dragged. They were a tad boring and it took some time to get into the story. Also, Cassandra didn't have much of a personality. I could't connect with her. And Apollo/Aidan irritated the crap out of...

4.0 Review: Antigoddess
I read Anna Dressed in Blood by the same author last year, and wasn't really all that impressed with it, so was a little wary of this one, but figured, what the hell. I'd give it a shot. So glad I did because it turned out to be one of the best YA books with the Greek Mythology theme that I've ever ...

4.0 Antigoddess
It's taken me a bit to get my thoughts together on this one. The first time I tried my hand at Kendare Blake's newest book, I ended up setting it aside. Antigoddess holds within it a story that assumes you have some knowledge of Greek Mythology. That you're at least familiar with Athena, Hermes, Aph...

4.0 ANTIGODDESS BY: KENDARE BLAKE
I read Antigoddess as my first book club book with the fantastic ladies over at bookishlydelighted.blogspot.com. I have had this on my to-read shelf for awhile now, and was thrilled when I saw it would be the book of choice when I joined! And it did not disappoint, but it is from Kendare Blake so I ...

4.0 Antigoddess
The Greek/Roman pantheon and associated mythology makes one thing abundantly clear: with great power comes no responsibility whatsoever. They're all jerks. Where some retellings focus on make gods more human, more empathetic, less sociopathic, Blake just runs with it. Athena is an anti-hero. we don'...
