Immortally Embraced

Angie Fox. St. Martin’s Paperbacks, $7.99 mass market (320p) ISBN 978-0-312-54667-0
In Immortally Yours, doctor Petra and demigod warrior Galen fulfilled a prophecy and brought about a ceasefire in the war between the gods. That truce is shaken when oracles reveal the existence of a massive weapon that could wipe out humankind. Petra is stunned to discover that her lover, Marc, who she thought had died, has been alive and doing medical work for the old gods—her enemies—for years. Petra and Marc team up to learn what the secret weapon is and how to destroy it, but spend most of their time waiting for events to unfold. Their plodding rekindled romance veers between anger and sex with no resolution or development in between, and fans who liked Galen will be aghast at how quickly Petra forgets about him and all the effort he put into helping her get over Marc’s supposed death. The immortals remain the saving grace, with entertaining, quirky personalities and hilariously massive egos. Agent: Jessica Faust, BookEnds. (Mar.)
