Waiting on Wednesday: Antigoddess by Kendare Blake

 
For those of you who don't know "Waiting On" Wednesday is an event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. The purpose is to let others know which book you are anticipating and can't wait til it comes out to read it.
 
 

Antigoddess (Antigoddess, #1)
Hardcover, 352 pages
Expected publication: September 10th 2013 by Tor Teen
 
Synopsis:
 
Old Gods never die…

Or so Athena thought. But then the feathers started sprouting beneath her skin, invading her lungs like a strange cancer, and Hermes showed up with a fever eating away his flesh. So much for living a quiet eternity in perpetual health.

Desperately seeking the cause of their slow, miserable deaths, Athena and Hermes travel the world, gathering allies and discovering enemies both new and old. Their search leads them to Cassandra—an ordinary girl who was once an extraordinary prophetess, protected and loved by a god.

These days, Cassandra doesn’t involve herself in the business of gods—in fact, she doesn’t even know they exist. But she could be the key in a war that is only just beginning.

Because Hera, the queen of the gods, has aligned herself with other of the ancient Olympians, who are killing off rivals in an attempt to prolong their own lives. But these anti-gods have become corrupted in their desperation to survive, horrific caricatures of their former glory. Athena will need every advantage she can get, because immortals don’t just flicker out.

Every one of them dies in their own way. Some choke on feathers. Others become monsters. All of them rage against their last breath.

The Goddess War is about to begin.
 
Why I am Waiting:
 
Did you read the synopsis of this book? It sound so amazing and awesomely fantastic. Greek Goddesses on the verge of dieing out fighting a war against each other with Athena as the main character. This book is 100% up my alley. The only thing that is horrible about it is the very long wait. So can not wait for this book. I need it now. I really don't think I can wait. =]
 
Link me up in the comments to your WoW pick. =]
