Antigoddess by Kendare Blake (Macmillan - Tor Teen) swings away from the ghostly toward the gods. They aren't gone from this world, but they're trying their best to live quiet lives away from the stresses of being, well, gods. Now they're getting sick, and there's a war coming. Knock off another god, and you'll live longer...
What makes this book tick:
- Larger-than-life characters who are also still teens
- Sharp, dark writing
- Dark take on mythology, including the Trojan War
- Combines fantasy and horror
