Description

"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 Times bestselling author of A 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 debut sets Greek Gods against a modern Manhattan backdrop.

Professional reviews

"It's not unusual in Greek myths for the gods and goddesses to mingle with mortals, and this mystery set in New York City carries on that tradition. Jordanna Brodsky is obviously as comfortable narrating as she is writing. She infuses Selene (aka Artemis) with attitude and strength that will one hopes will be sustained as this trilogy unfolds. She passes the narration back and forth with Robert Petkoff, who gives voice to the classics professor who is certain he holds the key to the ritualistic murder that has takes place and can help to prevent more murders. Both narrators maintain the energy and intensity of their narrations throughout. J.E.M. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
