A few CW for this book: Sexual assault, violence, and death (of parents, kids, others) 

I’m a sucker for any retellings on Greek mythology, and Lore hit the spot for me. It’s the perfect mashup of The Hunger Games meets Percy Jackson.

Every seven years, the old Greek gods become mortal and are hunted by the descents of ancient bloodlines who can gain immortality and the god’s power by killing them. Lore Perseous has hidden away from her community to escape the bloodshed after the brutal murder of her family by a rival line. However, Lore gets drawn back into the world on the eve of the new Agon when an old, thought to be dead friend, Castor reenters her life and a gravely wounded Athena ends up on doorstep. Determined to end the bloodshed of the Agon once and for all, Lore binds her fate to Athena and gets swept up in a large scheme of revenge, betrayal and violence once again.
