'The more things change…
Five years ago, the gods of ancient mythology awoke all around the world.
The more things stay the same…
This morning, Kyra Locke is late for school because of an argument with her father.
Kyra lives in a transformed Washington, D.C., dominated by the
embassies of divine pantheons and watched over by the mysterious Society
of the Sun that governs mankind’s relations with the gods. But when
rebellious Kyra encounters two trickster gods on her way home, one
offering a threat and the other a warning, it turns out her life isn't
what it seems. She escapes with the aid of Osborne "Oz" Spencer, a young
Society field operative, only to discover that her scholar father has
disappeared with a dangerous Egyptian relic. The Society needs the item
back, and they aren’t interested in her protests that she knows nothing
about it or her father's secrets.
Now Kyra must depend on her
wits and the suspect help of scary Sumerian gods, her estranged oracle
mother, and, of course, Oz--whose first allegiance is to the Society.
She has no choice if she’s going to recover the missing relic and save
her father. And if she doesn't? Well, that may just mean the end of the
world as she knows it.'
From the author of Blackwood comes a fresh,
thrilling urban fantasy that will appeal to fans of Neil Gaiman,
Cassandra Clare, and Rick Riordan. - Goodreads
How fabulous does this sound? I for one can't wait to get my hands on it and have been impatiently waiting for months! Out at the beginning of September hopefully...
