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.
So I loved this so much.
I’m not gonna lie, I lowkey read this in such a whirlwind that I don’t think I registered much besides the fact that I really really liked it.
It’s more of a novel inspired by the seven trial of Heracles which doesn’t get very much publicity unless you’re a tiny little bit nerdy for mythology.
Mind you, I researched this during the boom of Percy Jackson so I’m a little muddled on all the details but I do know that the gender “bending” by having Hercules be Galene was brillant. The character development was superb and I’mma go reread this again.
for the second time this week.
