Praise for Olympus Bound 

"Rich, clever, and thoughtful... Brodsky expertly weaves together ancient mystery cults, mythology, and science, producing a syncretic masterpiece that challenges the reader's assumptions and expectations at every turn."

Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

"Intense and compelling.... Brodsky has delivered a terrific series that brings mythology to life as the gods struggle to survive in the modern reality. Great stuff!"

RT Book Reviews

"Moves quickly from nail-biting predicament to battle and back... Will delight readers who are mythology nerds."


Praise for Winter of the Gods

"In this stellar sequel to 2016’s The Immortals, former Olympian goddess Artemis, now living in New York City as Selene DiSilva, is drawn into another murder investigation. This one involves members of her own family, who are being systematically hunted and sacrificed as part of a mysterious cult’s deadly agenda. ... Brodsky’s approach to urban fantasy is intelligent, versatile, and esoteric; she draws on mythology, religion, and archeoastronomy to construct a believably complex framework for the much-diminished gods and their world, where contradictory stories somehow fit together. New York City stands out as a character in its own right, its landmarks and quirks strengthening the narrative that twists and turns through public and private spaces. This is a satisfying adventure that remains true to the spirit of the original myths while granting them several millennia of weight, consequence, and even regret. "

Praise for The Immortals

"In Brodsky’s impressive debut, the first installment of the Olympus Bound series, the Greek gods walk the streets of New York City, much faded since their glory days of millennia past. . . . Brodsky injects a melancholy air into this thoughtful thriller, taking her inspiration from the bloody, often contradictory, and frequently tragic Greek myths. She makes a wholly believable case for legendary figures to change and grow over time while retaining the echoes of their former lives. She also plays with more modern mythology, employing New York’s own secret places and storied history to great effect. This intelligent, provocative fantasy breathes exciting new life into old, familiar tales."

Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

"This series launch is a wonderful choice for fans of Greek mythology and urban fantasy readers looking for something different."

Library Journal, Starred Review, Debut of the Month

"Bravo to Brodsky for developing such a complex tale that manages to combine several parts of ancient mythology into a page-turning thriller with a romantic edge."

RT Book Reviews

"If the ancient Greek gods left Olympus and lived in modern Manhattan, what would they do? Upend the Classics Department at Columbia, for a start! The Immortals is a lively re-imagining of classical mythology with an engaging premise, a page-turning plot, and an eye for the arresting and uncanny in contemporary urban life."

Deborah Harkness, New York Times bestelling author of A Discovery of Witches

 “Brodsky’s writing has claws...They sink in with the first word and don’t let go until you are finished with the book.”

Darynda Jones, New York Times bestselling author of First Grave on the Right

 “Brilliantly conceived and tautly plotted, The Immortals is a pulse-thrumming, fascinating novel. Selene is a perfect heroine for our times.”

Eliot Schrefer, author of Endangered and two-time National Book Award finalist



“Painstakingly researched, intellectually complex, and deeply rooted in the history and mythology of Ancient Greece, The Immortals is a richly imaginative, multi-layered tale that stimulates the heart and the mind in equal measure.”

Ian Caldwell, New York Times bestselling author of The Fifth Gospel

“Jordanna Max Brodsky’s page-turning debut novel, The Immortals, is partly a serial killer thriller, partly a fantasy (with some fascinating Greek mythology thrown in), and entirely enthralling.  Brodsky has created a strong, captivating heroine in Selene DiSilva, an avenging mythological crusader in modern-day Manhattan. Imaginative and fast-paced, The Immortals is pulse-pounding entertainment.”

Kevin O’Brien, New York Times bestselling author of No One Needs to Know

"Brodsky’s The Immortals creates an irresistible new genre all its own: Urban Mythology.  A superheroine Greek goddess struggling with an existential crisis, overbearing relatives, a tortured love life, and a penchant for vengeance fronts a page-turner that deftly weaves action, romance, and a dash of intellectual heft into one seamless whole."

Dustin Thomason, New York Times bestselling co-author of The Rule of Four
