Today on my blog I have the Anitgoddess Blog Tour. On my stop there is a spotlight, 10 Favorite Things, review, and a giveaway. So let's get started and meet the author Kendare:
Kendare Blake is an import from South Korea who was raised in the United States by caucasian parents. You know, that old chestnut. She received a Bachelor’s degree in Business from Ithaca College and a Master’s degree in Writing from Middlesex University in London. She brakes for animals, the largest of which was a deer, which sadly didn’t make it, and the smallest of which was a mouse, which did, but it took forever. Amongst her likes are Greek Mythology, rare red meat and veganism. She also enjoys girls who can think with the boys like Ayn Rand, and boys who scare the morality into people, like Bret Easton Ellis.

The Goddess War begins in Antigoddess, the first installment of the new series by acclaimed author of Anna Dressed in Blood, Kendare Blake.
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.
I love books about Mythology and Antigoddess didn’t disappoint. Kendare put a new spin on them that had me anxiously turning the pages to see what would happen next.
The Gods and Goddess are dying. Athena is being consumed by feathers and turning into a bird her brother Hermes is also succumbing to his own demise. They have no idea why all the sudden they are loosing their Immortality but they are determined to find out why. Which leads them to a human girl named Cassandra who is a prophet and holds the key to saving the Gods, but she has no idea she does.
I was so wrapped up in this unique story. The fact that Gods who are suppose to be Immortal are dying really pulled me into this world. Some scenes were hard to read due to the graphic descriptions but that is Kendare writing. She manages to write gory scenes beautiful.
The difference with the Gods in Kendare’s book is their vulnerability it gives them more human traits and therefore makes them more relatable. We get to see them more emotional as they face the chance of their own death. I can’t wait for the next book and see where Kendare takes the Gods. 5/5 Bloody Fangs
