  1. Antigoddess is all sort of freaky loveliness For fans of greek mythology, this novel brings in a creative and original depiction of the well loved myth, where the gods are caught in a new story and facing the war of all wars their lost immortality.First thing s first, you might want to brush up in your knowledge of the trojan war if you re not very well versed on that event in greek mythology or at least have Wiki at the ready As much as I enjoy this myth I have only dived into it in the past fe [...]

  2. Actual rating 2.5I can t believe this book was written by the same author as Anna Dressed in Blood This is likeGameboard of the Gods level of disappointment for me Granted, it s not even the same genre, but approaching this book from such exalted standardsI can t help but feel rather let down.It is not a bad book, but it didn t bring me the level of enjoyment I had come to expect, given the premise and given my love for mythology Yes, the mythological representation of the gods and goddesses in [...]

  3. This is my reaction while reading the summary And this is my reaction afterwards image error And then when I looked at the release date well, see that it s set for 2013 I can t wait to read this I ve always loved mythology and this book sounds like it s going to be absolutely amazing To me the Greek gods and goddesses have always been immortal so to see them in a state like this will be completely thrilling The idea is really intriguing Plus I just plain love Athena Oh, there s a cover now

  4. This book is decent But it s not great Don t get me wrong, I think a lot of people will enjoy it Hell, I enjoyed most of it It just didn t blow my mind I do see potential in the series so I plan on continuing with it, but Meh I just wanted The mythology was handled well but it focused on gods that I ve never really given that many fucks about Athena Hermes Really Where s that warmongering bastard Ares If the gods are fighting for their lives I d think he d be the one leading them into that fina [...]

  5.

  6. 3.5 starsI wish every book could be described using the words dark and twisted, that would make me ridiculously happy However, since I clearly can t have that, at least there are some that fit the description, and when they come my way, I am seriously overjoyed Antigoddess is one of those books With characters like Athena, Hermes, Apollo, Poseidon and the cursed prophetess Cassandra of Troy, what could possibly go wrong Very little, as it turns out Blake s version of the Greek gods is very moder [...]

  7. EDIT 12 07 12 Oh goodness Just look at that cover Isn t it so intriguing I wonder what the blood dripping feather stands for Does the feather means what happened to Athena I mean, she woke up sprouting feathers right And then the drop of blood from the feather, rippling in the water may mean something to Hermes Something in his flesh eating fever And also what is that It looked like something that is a forest located at the back of the ANTIGODDESS title and a green sphere shaped thing under the [...]

  8. I received a free copy of Antigoddess from Tor in exchange for an honest review After centuries, the Twilight of the Gods has arrived.Already fallen from Olympus, now mortal than god, each deity is dying in a manner peculiar to their power Athena, goddess of battle and intelligence, is being slowly suffocated by the feathers of her sacred bird, the owl The feathers fill her lungs and sprout beneath her skin While many of the gods are resigned to their demise and see their end as a final whim of [...]

  9. Bullet Review Note I received this as part of the Vine programAT is it Seriously, you have one of THE strongest, most unique concepts of YA today with an author who isn t afraid to be gritty and THIS is all I get A book of 90% b tching, blathering, unanswered questions, running, waffling and otherwise time wasting We have THREE female characters, all unique and interesting We have the Greek deities, portrayed in a somewhat serious fashion at least they aren t a bunch of whiny mopey love obsessed [...]

  11. I m one of the few people who never got around to reading Kendare Blake s Anna Dressed in Blood, though I do have a copy and will read itmeday Initially, it wasn t really on my radar, because horror isn t something I seek out, but the reviews convinced me Antigoddess, however, was a topic that called my name and I was hopeless to resist that call, much like Odysseus and the sirens Thankfully, Kendare Blake lived up to all the hype, and Antigoddess was a non stop horrorshow and thrill ride.Antigo [...]

  12. 4 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum bibliosanctum 201Antigoddess is the second book I have read by Kendare Blake, after the fun times I had with Anna Dressed in Blood earlier this year And as much as I appreciate a good ghost story, I have to say Antigoddess was up my alley.Funny story, though When I first added this book to my reading list, I only saw the cover and thought it was going to be a story about angels Damn feather threw me off It wasn t until I read the description that I realized I w [...]

  13. Antigoddess is an action packed, sizzling, and explosive whirlwind that completely captivated me and never let me go Kendare Blake s Antigoddess is absolutely epic and impossible to put down One of the best books I ve read in a long time.I ve wanted this book so badly ever since I first heard about it So when I got my grabby hands on a copy, I dived in immediately You know when you anticipate a book so hard, and then you re let down by it That is totally not the case with Antigoddess This book n [...]

  14. Actual rating 3.5 starsI really don t know whether to give this three or four stars.On the one hand, the first few chapters dragged They were a tad boring and it took some time to get into the story Also, Cassandra didn t have much of a personality I could t connect with her And Apollo Aidan irritated the crap out of me He s super overprotective of Cassandra You ll see when you read it.Yet the action picked up very quickly and after the first 50 pages, I soon had a vested interest in the story A [...]

  15. I might write a proper review for this sometime soon but, in short, the second half is MUCH better than the first I found the first half of the book to be slow and tedious I even considered not finishing at one point, but I m glad I did Still, not as good as Anna Dressed in Blood.

  16. With the influx of mythology retellings in YA in recent years, I was terribly afraid that I d spend half the time comparing this novel to all of the other recent additions to the genre as other reviewers have complained of doing Fret not, my loves, for Kendare Blake makes this story her own, giving it her usual flair for the dramatic and making it wholly awesome in the process.I m going to share a little secret with you guys I kind of really loved this book So much so that whenever I needed to m [...]

  17. To see full review click here.I really do love Greek mythology And when YA gets it right which is rarely I m in a happy mood.This book made me pretty happy.And while I m going to talk about the book obviously in this review I think the best way to explain what I like about it is what usually goes wrong in these retellings.I think the first thing that was in favor of Antigoddess was its synopsis The gist is that the Greek gods are dying There s nothing about insta love, forbidden love, or any of [...]

  18. I loved the Anna Dressed in Blood duology.I have than a tiny obsession with mythology.I harbor a bit of a girlcrush on Kendare Blake Kendare Blake wrote a modern mythology retelling.Sounds like a recipe for a book I could love, which generally means I won t, because the world is funny like that ha ha ha But fortunately, this was one of those cases of me loving a book just as much as I was hoping to I absolutely loved Blake s modern take on Greek mythology, the Trojan war and the Twilight of the [...]

  19. Ancient Gods on a modern quest with both old and new love.Read my Interview with the author Kendare Blake Not Yet ReadYou would think Antigoddess is a tale of Gods but I saw it as a look at mortality What is one willing to do when faced with with the reality of a Death you thought you d never meet When time is endless there are so many things you will excuse yourself of, but when time is short would you do all manner of evils to save yourself That s the question now isn t it.Athena is dying, her [...]

  20. This review is part of the Finding Fright in Books event on the blog, where you will soon find an interview with Kendare Blake Antigoddess FREAKED ME OUT, you guys I was not expecting thatwhich, honestly, I should have, after being freaked out by her previous Anna Dressed in Blood But one common asset between Anna Dressed in Blood and likely its sequel, Girl of Nightmares, which I haven t read yet but Mel recently loved and Antigoddess is that Kendare Blake has this awesome skill of getting unde [...]

  21. Okay, I have REALLY conflicted feelings about this book There were certain things I liked, and other things I completely HATED Don t get me wrong, I m not implying this is a bad book But, unfortunately this is an average book I think a lot of people will enjoy it I enjoyed some parts of it, but it just didn t blow me away When I first read the synopsis I thought this was going to be awesome Even though there s a ton of YA that deals with Greek Gods and Goddesses, Antigoddess has one of the most [...]

  22. That was so good.This is one of the books I brought in Edinburgh Actually, I did not planned to buy it, but I saw it, all alone in the shelf, I could not just leave it there Now that I have finished it, I cannot tell how much I am happy to have followed my instinct that afternoon.I had already read Anna Dressed in Blood and I really liked it, so I was pretty sure that I was going to like this one too Moreover, I adore Greek mythology, so I was curious to know how K Blake decided to develop that [...]

  23. This book was just awful, from the immature, awkward dialogue to the gross, over the top slut shaming to the shallow understanding of Greek mythology Antigoddess wants to be a dark and gritty story, and so of course Athena is a tattooed punk, all the gods are dying in grotesque, horrible ways, and there s absolutely no levity or lightness to the story, making it feel like a melodramatic slog I ll give credit where credit is due Kendare Blake is excellent at conjuring up brutal, beautiful imagery [...]

  24. Oh, you guys I was so excited for this one, and it delivered I think it s safe to say that Blake has proven herself an awesome talent in YA NA lit it s kinda hard to tell whether this one is mature YA or NA just due to the horror gore imagery alone If you liked Anna , but wanted , I think you guys are going to love Antigoddess I know I did One of the original looks at the Greek pantheon and the Trojan war plus Iliad Odyssey , Antigoddess has a little something for everyone horror, love, rage, r [...]

  25. Athena sta ndo Cos come suo fratello, Hermes, e tutti gli altri dei, ognuno di loro che pian piano soccombe a una maledizione diversa Cos piume di gufo cominciano a spuntare nel corpo di Athena soffocandola, Hermes si consuma lentamente in una febbre che sembra mangiargli la carne I due si trovano a cercare Demetra sperando che almeno lei, nonostante le sue condizioni, possa dire loro cosa fare, come salvare se stessi Sembra che Cassandra, una ragazza in grado di predire il futuro sia la chiave [...]

  26. I hate to compare an authors books writing to their earlier work I think each book and series should stand on it s own, but I admit I had high expectations going into Antigoddess because I was a huge fan of the Anna Dressed in Blood duology I think Blake set a new standard for YA horror with that series, going places that I had never seen an author go before It was gory and anything could happen to any character at any time which I found refreshing.I found Antigoddess to be a bit predictable and [...]

  27. When ANTIGODDESS began, I recognized the Kendare Blake who wrote ANNA DRESSED IN BLOOD and GIRL OF NIGHTMARES Athena, hiking across a desert with Hermes, is slowly dying of feathers growing in her body She recounts, in detail, what will happen when one finishes coming through her mouth It is quite the image, full of blood and tissue and canker sores.At other times, I had trouble recognizing Blake s style Where were the sharply drawn characters like Anna and Cas I love Greek mythology, and felt I [...]
