Title: Storm of the Gods 
Author: Amy Braun 


Thirty years ago, the gods of Greek legend returned to the world. Their return restored their powers, which had been spent in a cataclysmic battle with the Titans. With the ancient deities imprisoned in Tartarus, the Olympians now reside in Néo Vasíleio, formerly known as California.

Twenty-four-year-old Derek Aerios is a war scion, a descendent of Ares, the God of War. He and his brother, eighteen-year-old Liam, capture mythological creatures and rogue scions as part of Ares's elite military force. As he struggles to cope with his violent powers and the scars of a traumatic childhood, Derek tries to keep the two vows he has made: protect his brother, and never kill a human again.

But when Ares forces him to hunt and kill four rogue scions under Athena's control—by threatening Liam's life—Derek chooses to go after the scions in order to save his brother and keep his promise to himself.

Yet the closer Derek gets to the scions, the more he realizes that his orders are part of a deeper conspiracy that put him at odds with his mission and his conscience. Athena may not be the enemy, a traitor could be in their midst, and the Titans could be closer to freedom than ever before.


I've been a huge fan of Braun's work for a while now, so when I heard she had a new novel coming out I was extremely excited! Plus, I'm a huge fan of novels about Greek Gods and heroes, so this sounded like a win/win. I started the novel early one morning and it was all I could think about throughout the day. It was fast paced, action packed and full of engaging characters. I was immediately invested in the Aerios duo and I couldn't put this novel down! 

Braun does such a fantastic job with the world building in Storm of the Gods and I could picture each scene perfectly. I loved what each of the characters brought to the novel and I thought it was an all around great read. I would highly recommend this novel if you're a fan of Percy Jackson or other novels about Greek legends. Thank you Amy for sending a copy in exchange for an honest review! I can't wait to read book two! 

Rating 3.5/5
