The Immortals

(2016)
(The first book in the Olympus Bound series)
A novel by

 
 
In this modern-day "lively re-imagining of classical mythology" (Deborah Harkness), when a string of women are murdered in an ancient pagan ritual, Selene DiSilvia -- known by some as the goddess Artemis -- hears their cries for help and takes up her bow once more.

Manhattan has many secrets. Some are older than the city itself.

The city sleeps. In the predawn calm, Selene DiSilva finds the body of a young woman washed ashore, gruesomely mutilated and wreathed in laurel. Her ancient rage returns, along with the memory of a promise she made long ago -- when her name was Artemis.

Jordanna Max Brodsky's acclaimed debut sets Greek Gods against a modern Manhattan backdrop, creating an unputdownable blend of myth and mystery.

Genre: Urban Fantasy

Praise for this book

"Painstakingly researched, intellectually complex, and deeply rooted in the history and mythology of Ancient Greece, The Immortals is a richly imaginative, multi-layered tale that stimulates the heart and the mind in equal measure." - Ian Caldwell

"An engaging premise, a page-turning plot, and an eye for the arresting and uncanny in contemporary urban life." - Deborah Harkness

"Brodsky's writing has claws...They sink in with the first word and don't let go until you are finished with the book." - Darynda Jones

"Brilliantly conceived and tautly plotted, The Immortals is a pulse thrumming, fascinating novel. Selene is a perfect heroine for our times." - Eliot Schrefer
