Publisher's Summary

From the number-one New York Times best-selling author of The Darkest Minds comes a sweepingly ambitious, high-octane tale of power, destiny, love, and redemption.

Every seven years, the Agon begins. As punishment for a past rebellion, nine Greek gods are forced to walk the earth as mortals. They are hunted by the descendants of ancient bloodlines, all eager to kill a god and seize their divine power and immortality. 

Long ago, Lore Perseous fled that brutal world, turning her back on the hunt’s promises of eternal glory after her family was murdered by a rival line. For years she's pushed away any thought of revenge against the man - now a god - responsible for their deaths. 

Yet as the next hunt dawns over New York City, two participants seek her out: Castor, a childhood friend Lore believed to be dead, and Athena, one of the last of the original gods, now gravely wounded. 

The goddess offers an alliance against their mutual enemy and a way to leave the Agon behind forever. But Lore's decision to rejoin the hunt, binding her fate to Athena's, will come at a deadly cost - and it may not be enough to stop the rise of a new god with the power to bring humanity to its knees.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Fast Paced And Really Enjoyable :D

OHHH man, this book guys .. this book .. it was really gruesome and bloody to the core, yet I enjoyed it ALOT :D, so excited that I am among the first who read this book So the story is kind of complicated but I will simplify it as much as I can .. so we have 9 Greek gods led by Zeus .. these gods abused their powers on humanity to punish them Zeus decided to make an Agone, it's a competition for a week, during this week these gods become human and actually can die by special people called Hunters and these are people who are descendants from legendary Greek heroes, and once one of them kills the god the person who killed him\her gains their power and honors his family and this has gone on for 1400 years .. So this year the Agone began and we are following Lore who is the last of her bloodline as she tries to avenge her family from the one who killed them by working with Athena who is a god *GASP* and the whole book is set during the week of this time's Agone For the people who said there was no romance in the book .. EXCUSE ME ???? did you say no romance ??? what part of Castor and Lore's relationship is not romantic in your opinion??? .. literally every time they are together they are moony eyes for each other .. I really REALLY enjoyed this book and it's the second 2021 release that I enjoyed this much .. yaaayy so excited, this book got me in such a good mood with it's brutality :D the narrator was the worst part of the book, she didn't have a huge voice range and at some point everyone sounded the same to me .. that's why I had to read the physical book most of the time to keep up with the adventure

Chapters didn’t match up

My only complaint is that the chapters didn’t match up with the book. I go back and forth reading out of the book and listening to it so this made it very confusing.

A Must Read!

This may have been the best book I've read in the past year or so. I loved every moment! If you like action, mythology, and/or strong female protagonists...than this book is for you!
