Publisher's Summary

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.

What the Critics Say

"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)

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

This book brought me through a whole range of emotions, while brilliantly weaving myth together with history, romance, crime fighting, mystery and overall badassness. I would recommend this book to anyone, even those without any background in classical mythology. I barely knew who Artemis was when I opened this book - a great story is a great story! The performers on this audiobook are marvelous, and bring life to every character.

Well done.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, it is well written and involves subject matter that I and many of my friends find interesting.


What did you like best about this story?

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.


Which scene was your favorite?

I enjoyed all of the book, but I especially liked the interaction between the twins.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Of course, I refuse to give it away, though, I will say it involves Leto.


Any additional comments?

I can't wait to read the sequel in February. I really hope the audio book is available on here as well.
