Immortally Yours

Angie Fox. St. Martin’s Paperbacks, $7.99 mass market (320p) ISBN 978-0-312-54666-3
Petra Robichaud is a doctor on the front lines of an unusual kind of war. The gods of Greek, Norse, Egyptian, and other myths never disappeared. Instead, they’ve been locked in a deadly war for thousands of years. The two armies—old gods and new gods—regularly conscript human doctors to treat their wounded soldiers, and the war plods on without end. Galen of Delphi, a Greek demigod soldier who shows up on Petra’s operating table, thinks Petra is the key to ending the war, as described in an old prophecy. The connection between the two is instantaneous. Petra is terrified of their mutual attraction and the prospect of fulfilling the prophecy, and she alternates between pushing Galen away and giving in to lust. The premise shows promise, but there is little character development to support it; Petra and Galen roll from one sexual encounter to another, and there’s no attempt to explain what makes them tick. Agent: Jessica Faust, BookEnds. (Sept.)
