"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 Timesbestselling author ofA Discovery of Witches

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.

Jordanna Max Brodsky's acclaimed debutsets Greek Gods against a modern Manhattan backdrop.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good but not great The story had potential to be great but unfortunately it missed the mark as the two main characters had little in the way of "on page" chemistry and the action dragged at times.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mythology Fans Will Love It Really, really enjoyed this book. I love all things relating to the Greek myths, and it was a joy to see such an interesting take on them and how they would adapt to modern life. Which is to say, with very mixed results. I liked how true the gods stayed to their natures and how the author clearly did her research to respect ancient traditions. The story was compelling and surprising, especially since I thought I had it figured out a couple times. Selene is a great, strong character who I enjoyed reading as she struggled with her past and her present. The tale of Artemis and Orion is one of my favourites so I was very glad to see that included as well in a major way. Theo is absolutely adorable. Smart, charming, and carrying a surprise to his own story. I also couldn't get enough of Dennis and Dash, I gotta say. At times the story was slow and it seemed a little dragged out, and I thought the ending would be more climactic, but those are observations, not complaints. I really truly enjoyed this book since it's been the most enjoyable mystery I've read in a while, and I can't wait for it to continue.
