For centuries, Zeus has punished the gods with a game called the Agon, which turns them mortal for one week, and at the mercy of being hunted by those with godly ambitions. Only a handful of the original Greek gods remain, the rest replaced by the mortals who killed them and ascended. After her family's sadistic murder by a rival bloodline, Lore escapes and vows to repay her parents' sacrifice by doing one thing - surviving. For seven years, she has pushed back dark thoughts of revenge against the man responsible for their murder, a man by the name of Wrath who has attained unimaginable power. Except for one week, every seven years. A week that is fast approaching. When Lore comes home on the first night of the Agon to find Athena gravely wounded on her doorstep, the goddess offers her an alliance; they have a mutual enemy, after all. But as the world trembles under the force of Wrath - a god with the power to destroy all of humanity - will Lore's decision to bind her fate with Athena's come back to haunt her?… (more)

such a fun read, very action packed! ( )

I started off really loving this book but by the end I was disappointed. I loved Lore's personality and her attitude to get through whatever is thrown at her. Van and Miles' interactions were super cute and I loved seeing Castor and Lore reconnect. The pacing was sporadic and there were too many flashbacks for my liking. I felt like some of the flashbacks could have been replaced with Lore explaining the past to one of her friends or Athena. The ending felt like a cop out to me/the felt rushed for a stand alone book. I would probably reread this book but it's not one of my top books of this year 3.5/5 ( )

This book fell flat for me, found it quite dull . The information dumping was excessive and I just couldn't get into it. Thats what i find with Alex Bracken books. ( )

"It's not always the truth that survives, but the stories we wish to believe. The legends lie."

My Percy Jackson loving heart loved this book: The mythology, the conflict, the plot-twists, just everything about it.

My only complaint (as with most things I read) is that I want more.

At this point I think it's safe to say: If Alexandra Bracken writes it, I will read it. ( )
