Waiting on Wednesday: Antigoddess

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming novels we can't wait to read. This week’s choice is:

antigoddessTitle: Antigoddess by Kendare Blake
Publisher: Tor Teen
Publish Date: Sept. 10, 2013
Genre: Fantasy, Mythology

Goodreads Summary: 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.

Why am I waiting on Antigoddess? I love Greek mythology and Kendare Blake has proven that she can write. Her debut novel, Anna Dressed in Blood, scared the mess out of me but it was still well written. I’m really excited about Antigoddess but September seems so far away… What books are you waiting on?

This one will get a lot of hype I bet. I still haven't read Anna Dressed in Blood, but I've heard wonderful things about it.

Check out my WOW.

This sounds like such a cool twist on Greek mythology-I can't wait for its release. In the meantime I need to pick up the sequel to Anna to enjoy more of Blake's great writing.
