Were you a Percy Jackson fan when you were growing up? Read American Gods and loved it? A huge fan of contemporary fantasy like The Night Circus? A Discovery of Witches? The Golem and the Jinni? Well, look no further!
We’ve acquired three books by Jordanna Max Brodsky – a debut author who is writing an amazing contemporary fantasy about history, myth, Greek Gods, & Manhattan. To whet your appetite, here is a bit about THE IMMORTALS:
The Relentless One, the Bearer of the Bow, the Untamed…
…those are only a few of the names Selene DiSilva’s answered to over the years. But these days she’s content to work in secret, defending the women of Manhattan from the evils of men. She’s reclusive, stubborn, and deeply unfriendly to everyone but her dog. But when a woman’s mutilated body washes up in Riverside Park wearing a laurel wreath, Selene finds that she can no longer hide in the shadows. As more women are threatened, Selene is forced to embrace the one name she’s tried hardest to forget — Artemis. For who better to follow the killer’s tangled trail than the Goddess of the Hunt herself?
Jordanna Max Brodsky graduated from Harvard with a degree in History and Literature. She has long been fascinated with Greek mythology, in particular the ways in which the Olympians have come to life for so many, for so long. Here she imagines their inner lives as they lose their omnipotence and must find their way in our own modern world. Her Artemis is like a female Dexter with 3,000 years of baggage to unpack. THE IMMORTALS reimagines the milieu explored by Percy Jackson in much the same way The Magicians has for Harry Potter.
We’ll be publishing next February in both Orbit US & Orbit UK.
