An exiled goddess goes on a quest to clear her name and save Mount Olympus in Talia Rothschild & A. C. Harvey’s action-packed young adult debut, The Immortal Game!
Galene, daughter of Poseidon, desperately wants to earn her place among the gods. But when a violent attack leaves Mount Olympus in chaos and ruins, she is accused of the crime. Banished from Olympus, Galene sets out to prove her innocence and discovers a more deadly plot—one that threatens even the oldest of Immortals.
Fortunately, she has allies who willingly join her in exile:
A lifelong friend who commands the wind.
A defiant warrior with deadly skill.
A fire-wielder with a hero’s heart.
A mastermind who plays life like a game.
All-out war is knocking at the gates. Galene and her friends are the only ones who can tip the scales toward justice, but their choices could save Olympus from total annihilation, or be the doom of them all.
Well this book, this absolute gem of a book was everything I didn’t know I wanted or needed. I have a deep, unfaltering love of all things Greek. Especially mythology.
Rag-tag bunch of misfits? I NEED IT.
Trials and tribulations? I’m sold.
Romance that doesn’t overshadow the awesome plot? TAKE. MY. MONEY.
This fabulous book pretty much ticked all the boxes for me. The pacing was great and I loved that things didn’t necessarily come easy to the MCs. Usually I’m not that fond of anything more than a dual-pov but this book was so easy to follow and I thoroughly enjoyed seeing the perspectives of the 4 MCs.
The character progression throughout is very well done, we see the situations from each of the main characters and the different perspectives and their motives behind them progress nicely and keep your turning the page.
This book will appeal to anyone who has an interest in Greek Mythology and particularly for those who enjoy a more plot driven story rather than romance driven.
