From Goodreads:

There are gods among us…

Six young gods are hiding in plain sight among mortals, living secretly in cities across the world. From lavish penthouse soirees to pulsing underground clubs, for them, the party literally never ends. Until now.

On a hot June morning, the body of a beautiful girl is found floating in the rooftop pool of the Jefferson Hotel, her white-ink tattoos revealing the story of a life much longer than seems possible. Only the immortals know the truth: Nadia was the goddess of hope. Now she’s gone, and the world as they know it is ending. The Hudson River has turned blood red. Storms rage overhead. Mania is rapidly spreading across the globe.

It is up to the remaining gods—Lola, Dean, Weston, Mark, Nike and Peitha—to put aside centuries of betrayal and heartbreak, and stop the mysterious source of darkness that is taking over… before the sun sets forever.

Carina Adly MacKenzie, blogger and television critic, has penned a steamy, romantic, and ultimately redemptive story of forgotten gods, the persistence of hope, and the power of love to save us.

Why I Can’t Wait: OOOOH! I love this premise! Gods living amongst us when the goddess of hope turns up dead and darkness takes over? Yes, yes, yes I think I need this one! The cover is cute too. 🙂

    I saw this one on the PLL announcement, but I didn’t give it much credence at the time. Having read the synopsis now, I think I’ll wait to hear your verdict. Gods living among us is usually something I’d be all over, but I’m wary of this one for some reason.

    I guess I´m the only one who thinks the cover looks cheap and 80s like and almost close to a dealbreaker for me (I know, dont judge a book by its cover, but still), but the premise and the story sounds thrilling and I also really like Carina´s writing, so I can´t wait to see a complete book of hers! Very excited for her:D
