Winter of the Gods
By Jordanna Max Brodsky
Myth and reality collide in a series that sets Greek Gods against a modern Manhattan backdrop. Deborah Harkness, author of A Discovery of Witches, calls Brodsky's The Immortals 'arresting and uncanny'.
Manhattan has many secrets. Some are older than the city itself.
Winter in New York: snow falls, lights twinkle, and the goddess Artemis prowls the streets looking for prey.
But when a dead body is discovered sprawled atop Wall Street's iconic Charging Bull statue, it's clear the NYPD can't solve the murder without help. The killing isn't just the work of another homicidal cult - this time, someone's sacrificing the gods themselves.
While raising fundamental questions about the very existence of the gods, Artemis must hunt down the perpetrators, tracking a conspiracy that will test the bonds of loyalty and love.
Jordanna Max Brodsky hails from Virginia, where she spent four years at a science and technology high school pretending it was a theatre conservatory. She holds a degree in history and literature from Harvard University. When she's not wandering the forests of Maine, she lives in Manhattan with her husband. She often sees goddesses in Central Park and wishes she were one.
