Immortal Book

Jordanna Max Brodsky's Immortals. orbital trajectory, $25 (432p) ISBN 978-0-316-34718-1 Brodsky's stunning d├ębut, the first part of the Olympus Bound franchise, features the Greeks walking the city' lanes, much fading since their glorious era of thousands of years ago. Artemis, now called Selene DiSilva, is an law enforcement officer who investigates crime against females; when she comes across the bodies of a Columbia teacher who has been ritualally butchered, she is attracted to excavate more.

Their unintended aide in this affair is Theo Schultz, the victim's ex-lover, whose classicist expert knowledge allows him to conclude that someone is trying to revive and revive the Eleusinian mystery worship of old Greece, but with a new, homicidal touch. He is worried that the one behind the worship is someone he knows: a cousin who wants to recover eternity.

Bredzky is inspired by the gory, often conflicting and often dramatic mythologies of Greece.

Immortals (Olympus Bound, #1) by Jordanna Max Brodsky

A FEW: SOME ARE OLDER THAN THE TOWN. Manhattan. The city's asleep. DiSilva Selene is walking her puppy along the shore of the Hudson. A FEW: SOME ARE OLDER THAN THE TOWN. Manhattan. The city's asleep. DiSilva Selene is walking her puppy along the shore of the Hudson. At dawn Selene finds the corpse of a young lady who has been flushed on land, cruelly maimed and wrapped in praiseworth.

With the NYPD from its depths, Selene swears to chase the murderer alone. Together they face a long-forgotten worship behind a series of killings, and they need help from the one fountain that most mistrusts Selene: the other immortals of the town. Just as Lev Grossman's The Magicians talked to a whole culture of grown-ups with Harry Potter, the IMMORTALS will charm anyone who loves it.
