Series Info/Source: I got this as an audiobook from Audible. This is a stand alone book.

Audiobook Quality (3/5): The audiobook quality here was not the best. The narrator reads very clearly and has good tone and inflection but does a poor job with distinct character voices. Lore, Miles, and Castor all sound the same and I struggled to figure out who was talking more than once. The voices of the different gods are over characterized and sound almost silly.

Story (4/5): Bracken has been a bit hit and miss for me. I enjoyed "Brightly Woven" and thought "The Darkest Minds" first book was okay but didn't enjoy (or continue with) the rest of the series. I never tried reading "Passenger". "Lore" is definitely one of Bracken's better books.

I liked the twists and turns to the plot, the book was hard to predict and engaging but never felt contrived. This feels very YA but also had a bit of an adult urban fantasy edge to it as well. I like that there was a point to the story rather than just having gods and mortals fight each other for power. This story is about the establishment behind that godly power and does address things such as women's rights too. I really enjoyed that this was a stand alone book and I liked how the story wrapped up.

Characters (4/5): There is a lot of action here and all of the characters are very complex and have good depth to them. Even the side characters are very well done. I didn’t really like these characters but they were intriguing to read about.

Setting (4/5): The world-building here is well done and I love the idea of the Agon and gods taking on mortal forms for a limited time. The story is set in modern day New York City and that was a fun place to have this set.

Writing Style (4/5): This jumps between Lore’s past and present, although we spend most of the time in Lore’s present. That format worked really well for this book (I feel like I am reading a lot of books with that sort of format lately). There is a good balance of world-building, complex plot, interesting characters, and action here. The story moved along at a good pace and was easy to read. As I mentioned above this is one of Bracken’s better books.

My Summary (4/5): Overall this was a good book and I enjoyed it. I love how the Greek mythology was woven into our modern day world. I also love how complex the characters were and all the action. This has a well done plot with some good twists and turns. I would recommend it if you enjoy books about Greek gods in a modern day urban setting. ( )

This is a generous 5 stars as anything based on Greek Mythology is an immediate must-read for me at the moment! However, I do feel it could of been 100 pages shorter.

I loved that Bracken brought this mythological story into the 21st century by highlighting the fact that Athena never championed women as her heroes.
I also loved finding the other mythological accuracies, such as that in the Agon, women were not supposed to ascend (Much as they were not allowed to actively participate in the Olympics in the Classic Period in Greece). ( )

Incredible book and really well researched, but it felt like I needed a precursor to this book, a mini prologue or something so that I could walk into this book with a decent amount of greek mythology knowledge. It also left me wanting more for the characters which i may not get since it's a standalone book (that I'm aware of). This is a fun and exciting book to read and even though it dragged at points, it was so easy to get wrapped up into this world. I didn't really care for the location setting of the book, i would have rather it were anywhere but New York City, i feel like that location in books is far overused. but! I loved this book regardless. Truly, an amazing read. ( )

At first, I was really enthralled by the cover, which resembles a marble-looking Medusa. As I started reading, I soon became frustrated with the book. There was such an information dump in the beginning and so much going on, it was more of a chore to read than something I enjoyed. If you do not have any previous knowledge of Greek mythology, good luck understanding. This book has taken me an entire month to read rather than days with others. I liked the idea because I thought it was re-telling, but was disappointed with the results. I never did keep up with the other families that didn't have much of an impact on the characters, and only focused on the main ones (Miles, Cas, Lore, Van, and Athena).

The flashbacks were a nice addition and I appreciated them greatly as they somewhat expanded on each character a little more each time. Overall, the ending wasn't as bad as I anticipated it to be, but left me somewhat unsatisfied. I'd recommend this to anyone who enjoys Greek mythology and is around the age of 12-15. =) ( )

So I guess I am too "old school" to have fully enjoyed this book. I was so intrigued by the cover. I love reading books on mythology. (One of my favorites is Circe by Madeline Miller). I thought this would be a retelling of an ancient myth, but it was not. The author took the names of Greek gods but then created a story of the Agon, a punishment set forth for the gods rebelling and threw in a bunch of twenty-something year olds. Every 7 years the gods are made to walk the earth as mortals and are hunted by descendants (mortals) of the ancients bloodlines. It was a lot of fighting and really had no back story of the ancient gods. I actually found it a bit confusing about the gods being gods, and then mortals and then other people killing them and then they become gods, but not "real" gods. It was more about a group of young kids who were trying not to die. Not what I thought it would be and it was just ok for me. I received a complimentary e-book. ( )
