Manhattan has many secrets. Some are older than the city itself.
The city sleeps. Selene DiSilva walks her dog along the banks of the Hudson. She is alone - just the way she likes it. She doesn't believe in friends, and she doesn't speak to her family. Most of them are simply too dangerous.
In the predawn calm, Selene finds the body of a young woman washed ashore, gruesomely mutilated and wreathed in laurel. Her ancient rage returns. And so does the memory of a promise she made long ago - when her name was Artemis.
"The Immortals is a lively re-imagining of classical mythology with an engaging premise, a page-turning plot, and an eye for the arresting and uncanny in contemporary urban life." (Deborah Harkness, New York Times best-selling author of A Discovery of Witches)

Yes, it is well written and involves subject matter that I and many of my friends find interesting.
The way the author phrases things gives it the ring of myth or prophesy. I imagine it is very hard to take the Olympians and make them more human and yet still have them reminiscent of their divine selves.
I enjoyed all of the book, but I especially liked the interaction between the twins.
Of course, I refuse to give it away, though, I will say it involves Leto.
I can't wait to read the sequel in February. I really hope the audio book is available on here as well.
