Waiting on Wednesday: Antigoddess by Kendare Blake (Antigoddess #1)

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine in which we have the opportunity to let others know about books that we are eagerly waiting for.

Title: Antigoddess by Kendare Blake 
Published by: Tor Teen 
Release date: September 10th, 2013

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 I want to read it: I love Greek mythology, thus this one it's right up my alley.  I haven't read Anna Dressed in Blood, but I plan to remedy that soon... anyway this one is by the same author.  Beautiful cover too, right?

What are you waiting for this week? 


  1. I finally got around to reading Anna Dressed In Blood a few weeks ago and after falling in love with that I am so much more excited for this novel now! I absolutely can't wait!

  2. Wow! That sounds so good! I recently started reading the Gods & Monsters series by Kelly Keaton (in that one, Athena was an evil psycho), and I've been curious to check out more mythology-related YA novels.
