Product description

An explosive romantasy YA, perfect for fans of The Hunger Games and Lore.“A thrilling, fast-paced, and brutal tale of revenge, loyalty, courage, and friendship. Avery has created a world that is merciless in its cruelty and trickery, and a cast of gods who revel in causing chaos, but Ara, a heroine full of heart, is more than a match for even the wickedest of them.” – Melinda Salisbury, bestselling author of Her Dark Wings Every Lunar Eclipse signifies the beginning of The Immortal Games: an epic set of games played by the Gods of Olympus, with randomly-selected humans as their Tokens. The stakes are high; the Gods covet entertainment and glory above all else, for the Tokens, it’s about survival. 17-year-old Ara wants revenge. Revenge on the Gods for allowing her older sister to die in the Games. She’s determined to be selected as a Token and find a weapon powerful enough to kill a God. But when she’s plucked from the clutches of death by Hades, God of the Underworld, the odds are stacked against her. Hades is the outcast of the Gods, and the only one who has never won the games. But he soon realises that Ara does not fear death, just as she does not fear him, and when a wager with Zeus and Poseidon puts both their futures at stake, the games take on a new meaning. With each challenge, the games become more brutal. Can Ara put aside her rage and survive?

  • For fans of Circe, Ariadne and The Silence of the Girls.
  • Perfectly plotted Greek Mythology and Astrology makes this the perfect YA for BookTok.
  • Cover stunningly illustrated by Instagram star, Tom Roberts.
