Publisher's Summary

Manhattan has many secrets. Some are older than the city itself.

The city sleeps. Selene DiSilva walks her dog along the banks of the Hudson. She is alone - just the way she likes it. She doesn't believe in friends, and she doesn't speak to her family. Most of them are simply too dangerous.

In the predawn calm, Selene finds the body of a young woman washed ashore, gruesomely mutilated and wreathed in laurel. Her ancient rage returns. And so does the memory of a promise she made long ago - when her name was Artemis.

What the Critics Say

"The Immortals is a lively re-imagining of classical mythology with an engaging premise, a page-turning plot, and an eye for the arresting and uncanny in contemporary urban life." (Deborah Harkness, New York Times best-selling author of A Discovery of Witches)

    "HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!"

    This book brought me through a whole range of emotions, while brilliantly weaving myth together with history, romance, crime fighting, mystery and overall badassness. I would recommend this book to anyone, even those without any background in classical mythology. I barely knew who Artemis was when I opened this book - a great story is a great story! The performers on this audiobook are marvelous, and bring life to every character.

    Story
    "Not what I was expecting."
    What did you love best about The Immortals?

    The Narrators and learning about Greek Mythology.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I loved the acknowledgements at the end. She gave credit where credit was due.


    Have you listened to any of Jordanna Max Brodsky and Robert Petkoff ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was my first by Jordanna Brodsky, she did excellent job narrating. Robert Petkoff is the BOMB!! In fact, I purchased this book because I searched specifically for his name as narrator. He did not disappoint! He could read anything and make it interesting. He's my favorite by far!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No.

    Story
    "Restarted 3 times and still couldn't get into it"
    What was most disappointing about Jordanna Max Brodsky’s story?

    The story jumped from point of view to point of view and there was such a disconnect between the narrators, it made getting into the story difficult.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jordanna Max Brodsky and Robert Petkoff ?

    Robert Petkoff was fine as a narrator but something about Jordanna Max Brodsky didn't work. I don't know if she was trying to give the character an accent or trying to do a "dramatic" performance. It just didn't work.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The mythology aspect of the story was interesting but not enough to get past the poor narration.

    Story
    "Well done."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, it is well written and involves subject matter that I and many of my friends find interesting.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The way the author phrases things gives it the ring of myth or prophesy. I imagine it is very hard to take the Olympians and make them more human and yet still have them reminiscent of their divine selves.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I enjoyed all of the book, but I especially liked the interaction between the twins.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Of course, I refuse to give it away, though, I will say it involves Leto.


    Any additional comments?

    I can't wait to read the sequel in February. I really hope the audio book is available on here as well.

    Story
    "Be prepared to learn a lot about Greek Mythology."

    I really enjoyed this read/ listen. The characters are interesting and sometimes funny. I learned a lot of interesting information about Greek Gods and found myself looking up more information on each one.
    The narration is fantastic. Robert Petkoff is one of my favorites and Max Brodsky was surprisingly excellent for an author / narrator. If you are interested in mythology then this is a fun way to learn more about it.

    Story
    "Exciting start for a very different series"

    A delightful take weaving fact, fantasy and imagination built on an intriguing foundation of scholarship. This roller coaster ride takes the stories from Greek and Roman mythology that most of us, male and female alike but different parts for each, and fills in the blanks we overlooked as children, imbuing them with depth and thought provoking possible answers to many "what if" questions.

    One of the best things about the audio book is the choice, first, of two narrators - male and female - throughout, and second, of the choice of those particular narrators. Robert Petkoff is one of the best narrators in the business. Each character he creates has his or her own distinctive voice and one that is absolutely true to the character. His female voices are as good as his male voices. Similarly, Ms Brodsky does a superb job of voicing not only her heroine, but all of the other voices in her segments. One might assume that an author would be the best interpreter of her own characters, but this is rarely true. Ms. Brodsky is a delightful exception.

    I can only say that I was very sad when I came to the end and can only wait anxiously for more from the author.

    "excellent story"

    loved the story! I'm not much of a fan of the dual voice artists. It would have been better with one person reading the book.

    "Refreshing"

    The Immortals was a welcome alternative to space wars and zombies. As a teen I was fascinated by Greek mythology but never got to take the class.

    "spoiler alert"

    it was a great story, & a great book. I did truly enjoy it up until the end. It is not often you find a good book with a female heroine that does not involve romance. so I was quite disappointed when they brought Theo back to life.
