An exiled goddess goes on a quest to clear her name and save Mount Olympus in Talia Rothschild & A. C. Harvey’s action-packed young adult debut, The Immortal Game!
Galene, daughter of Poseidon, desperately wants to earn her place among the gods. But when a violent attack leaves Mount Olympus in chaos and ruins, she is accused of the crime. Banished from Olympus, Galene sets out to prove her innocence and discovers a more deadly plot—one that threatens even the oldest of Immortals.
Fortunately, she has allies who willingly join her in exile:
A lifelong friend who commands the wind.
A defiant warrior with deadly skill.
A fire-wielder with a hero’s heart.
A mastermind who plays life like a game.
All-out war is knocking at the gates. Galene and her friends are the only ones who can tip the scales toward justice, but their choices could save Olympus from total annihilation, or be the doom of them all.
Content Warning: Emotional abuse, battle scenes, up-close death
As I said, I’m only 25% into the book and I’ve basically gotten to the synopsis. I’m loving the writing and the magic. I thought it was an interesting twist on what happens with the Olympians children. We follow multiple perspectives and I haven’t found one that I wasn’t enjoying, albeit, one character so far has not added much to the plot yet. The authors have managed to put enough pieces in place that the reader is interested in continuing and not feeling like everything is being spelled out for them.
Five Reasons to Read The Immortal Games
Unofficial Book Tag
Galena: a book that takes place on the water
This beautifully written novella follows a water-breathing descendants of African slave women tossed overboard have built their own underwater society. It takes place with a character always in water! I highly recommend this to everyone! Solomon wrote a beautiful and descriptive world underwater. The magic and history of the world was very detailed and I could fully picture it.
Iyana: a book where a character can fly
In this future something went terribly wrong and now gravity on Earth is lower. Now everyone can fly, but there’s also a risk of you floating too high. I loved the artwork and the story of this graphic novel. It had an interesting history, characters, and plot–and a world I’m more than excited to return to.
Kostas: a book featuring a game
There are a million books featuring games, but of course the only one I could think of today was Warcross by Marie Lu. This features a VR World that has a pro competition where teams battle it out. It’s a fun scifi with a hidden conspiracy!
Braxtus: a character that protects the one they love/everyone
This is a fun middle grade where two girls get transported to the magical school for the good and evil. I love magical schools and a play on classical fairytale characters being brought into an original story. Agatha does everything in her power to protect Sophie. It’s about magic, friendships, and expectations.
Demitri: a book with a gorgeous cover
Release Date: February 22, 2022
I had so many to pick from since I have a tendency to pick books based on covers (I know I’m a monster lol). I decided I to pick a future release. Do I know anything about it? Nope lol. I know the author (waiting for XOXO to come out) and I know it’s a mythology retelling.
Chrysander: a book featuring a rebellion
This was a fun fantasy standalone. It follows a rebellion that wants to overtake the corrupt crown. I swear my review for this is coming! But I definitely agree with those who say you’d love it if you love Six of Crows (and want a standalone).
Unnamed: an upcoming release that has God Tier potential
I mean look at this cover! It looks gorgeous and I’ve been having a really good run of mythological retellings.
Deck of Fates: a book that’s intimidating
So this one is intimidating to me for a few reasons: everyone seems to love it or the TV series and I’ve had more misses than hits for Neil Gaiman’s writing. The size doesn’t help it along either.
Immortal Game: a book with a magical challenge
Olympians: a book with a complicated family
The Merciful Crow by Margaret Owen
This one fits complicated family in a few different ways, but you’ll have to read it to find out how. I love this duology!
