Review & Giveaway: The Immortals by Jordanna Max Brodsky

The Immortals by Jordanna Max BrodskyWe all know that the gods walked the earth with humans in ancient Greece, but few realize they are among us still. Even in Manhattan.

In Jordanna Max Brodsky's The Immortals we meet the gods in the modern world. They live on, though not necessarily in their former glory, and the days of romping carefree on Mount Olympus are long gone.

This tense thriller focuses on Selene DiSilva (aka Artemis) and her personal mission to avenge women who have been victims of violent crime. As Selene investigates the murder of a university professor, she begins to suspect a deeper scheme, one that may involve some ex-Olympians. The solution to the crime will have far-reaching consequences, and Selene is forced to make some hard choices.

Brodsky's first in a new series excels in the tense plot and excellent world building and particularly in the re-imagined gods. In The Immortals we see how a few thousand years have affected the once mighty Greek pantheon. I liked being re-introduced to the myths and seeing the relationships among the gods from a new perspective.

The Immortals, a genre-bending tale geared to an adult audience, should find wide appeal, hooking mythology lovers, urban fantasy fans, and mystery/thriller readers alike.
