An exiled goddess goes on a quest to clear her name and save Mount Olympus in Talia Rothschild & A C Harvey’s action-packed young adult debut, The Immortal Game!
Galene, daughter of Poseidon, desperately wants to earn her place among the gods. But when a violent attack leaves Mount Olympus in chaos and ruins, she is accused of the crime. Banished from Olympus, Galene sets out to prove her innocence and discovers a more deadly plot—one that threatens even the oldest of Immortals.
Fortunately, she has allies who willingly join her in exile:
A lifelong friend who commands the wind.
A defiant warrior with deadly skill.
A fire-wielder with a hero’s heart.
A mastermind who plays life like a game.
All-out war is knocking at the gates. Galene and her friends are the only ones who can tip the scales toward justice, but their choices could save Olympus from total annihilation, or be the doom of them all.
The Immortal Game by Talia Rothschild & A.C. Harvey is full of intrigue, heart-pounding quests, and excellent characters. I love Greek Gods, so this YA Fantasy was right up my alley.
The Immortal Game grabs you from page one, and throws you right into the action. This never slows down. The narrative races to the end of the book at a heart-pounding race, and never gives you a chance to set the book down.
The authors clearly put research into this novel. It felt real, and nothing felt like it was rushed over. The Immortal Game is expertly crafted to be a book you won’t be able to stop reading once you pick it up.
