There will be spoilers from book one, Antigoddess.

Full disclosure- I absolutely adore Kendare’s work. She was so nice as to send me this book but that doesn’t alter my rating or review of this novel. If I’d have hated it I would have cried from disappointment but would be honest and rated accordingly.

My Rating:

Cover Reveal- Mortal Gods by Kendare Blake+Giveaway (INT)

Kendare Blake’s books are some of my favorites, her Anna series was gruesome, horrific yet heartfelt. The first of her newest series, Antigoddess continued with Kendare’s beautiful descriptions and incredible story telling. I am beyond thrilled for the next book, Mortal Gods. The cover is a departure from the first book’s cover. I really loved the cover of Antigoddess but I do like this one since it has a person in it…Lego Cover Art possibilities. What do you think?

What better way to introduce a new cover than to hear from the author herself. Here’s Kendare with some of her thoughts about the Mortal Gods cover as well as an exclusive on the title of book 3:

So, as some may already know, MORTAL GODS was originally titled ARISTEIA. An aristeia is a moment in epic poetry where the hero is untouchable. Where they kill more than ever before, and with more flair and brutality. Where they are almost a god. The aristeia of the title would have referred to Cassandra, who is going through many ch-ch-changes as she attempts to recover from her loss at the end of Antigoddess and come to terms with being a weapon. The god killer. So it’s fitting that Cassandra is featured on the cover of Mortal Gods. Sure, she’s not blond, but the blond sure does look great with those golds and browns, so I’m not complaining!

Athena on the first cover and Cassandra on the second. But who does that leave for the third? Which, sneak preview here, My Friends are Fiction readers, may be titled UNGODLY.
