Description

MANHATTAN.Selene finds the body of a young woman on the banks of the Hudson river, mutilated and wearing a wreath of laurel. She feels a rage not felt in a lifetime, and an obligation: the promise that she made long ago. To protect those who are innocent -who cannot protect themselves. MURDERS.With the NYPD out of their depth, Selene must hunt the killer on her own. But when classics professor Theo Schultz offers his expertise to solve the case, the solitary huntress finds herself working with a man who's her opposite in every way. GODS.Together, they discover that a long-forgotten cult is behind the string of murders terrorizing the city. They'll need help from the one source Selene distrusts most of all: the city's other Immortals.show more

Review quote

If you want a modern day murder mystery, steeped in myth with a dash of magic, this is a must read . . . Ms. Brodsky is definitely an author to watch * Fantasy Faction * Intelligent, provocative fantasy [that] breathes exciting new life into old, familiar tales * Publishers Weekly * Urban fantasy done with great panache and intelligence: Brodsky knows her myth, and revels in depicting the erstwhile gods struggling with their fading powers and assuming, with varying degrees of success, the mantle of humanity * Guardian * A lively re-imagining of classical mythology with an engaging premise, a page-turning plot, and an eye for the arresting and uncanny -- Deborah Harkness, New York Times bestselling author of A DISCOVERY OF WITCHESshow more
