As I prepared this blog hop stop, I thought a lot about which books I’ve read and enjoyed that had gods and goddesses from mythology in them. All the books that came to mind were Y/A. As you can probably see in the sidebar, I write romance, and fairly steamy romance at that. So I kind of wanted to do a mythology giveaway that would fall closer in line with my steamy paranormal romance books. I tried again to think of some…I thought of lots of great books, many of which have all manner of immortal creature. Some that I thought of even have ‘gods’ although those gods aren’t from mythology. In the end, I came back to those first series that sprang to mind.
I’ve very recently been reading the Mythos Academy series by Jennifer Estep. I love them. The gods and goddesses in this series are all around them and at the same time, distant. And I hesitate to say more because I don’t want to give away any spoilers. But I love this series so much I’m going to give away the first two in the series — the short story First Frost and the novel A Touch of Frost — as my giveaway below.
Another Y/A series I’ve read that kept popping into my head was the Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan. That series has a whole different feel to it but I enjoyed it just as much as I’m enjoying Mythos Academy.
What about you? What books have you enjoyed that had gods and goddesses from mythology in them?
