The Immortals is a story of the gods, but it ends up being a story about what humanity is.The gods have lost their powers, and it is because of the lack of people worshiping them. As the gods lose their power, the become more and more human. They start becoming less fickle and even  the memories of their godhood get fuzzy. The main character is Selina who is also known by the name of Artemis, Goddess of the Hunt, or The Punisher. The story follows her and a classicist named Theo as they try to solve the murder of Theo's ex girlfriend Helen. I could not stop reading this book after I picked it up. It is a great book for someone looking for a mix of "Percy Jackson and The Olmpians" and "American Gods".

One of The View's Summer Picks, 2017
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.

"The Immortals is 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

Jordanna Max Brodsky's wide-acclaimed debut, The Immortals, sets Greek Gods against a modern Manhattan backdrop. Look out for her next novel, Winter of the Gods, in February 2017.
