An exiled goddess goes on a quest to clear her name and save Mount Olympus in Talia Rothschild & A C Harvey’s action-packed young adult debut, The Immortal Game!

Galene, daughter of Poseidon, desperately wants to earn her place among the gods. But when a violent attack leaves Mount Olympus in chaos and ruins, she is accused of the crime. Banished from Olympus, Galene sets out to prove her innocence and discovers a more deadly plot—one that threatens even the oldest of Immortals.

Fortunately, she has allies who willingly join her in exile:

A lifelong friend who commands the wind.
A defiant warrior with deadly skill.
A fire-wielder with a hero’s heart.
A mastermind who plays life like a game.

All-out war is knocking at the gates. Galene and her friends are the only ones who can tip the scales toward justice, but their choices could save Olympus from total annihilation, or be the doom of them all.

Author Bio:

Talia Rothschild, Italian American, is passionate about stories in many forms—music, dance, photography, film and, of course, great novels. She believes in thick hot chocolate and creamer in your tea. When she’s not happily writing, she’s mothering the sweetest baby girl and making memories with her husband. Her debut book The Immortal Game, coauthored with A. C. Harvey, hits the shelves May 2021.

Ashleigh Harvey is teaching high school physics and bringing her writing dreams to life. English-born and world-traveled, she loves filling her life with new adventures, such as visiting a new country or exploring the Wild West with her husband. She also finds escape in movies, music, literature, and yearly comic conventions. The Immortal Game is her debut novel, created alongside Talia Rothschild, her close friend.

I asked each author:

“What is your favourite happy ending from a book”

Ashleigh: Wildwood Dancing by Juliet Marillier. This is a kind of retelling of the 12 dancing princesses and the frog prince. Juliet created such a cool world and made such compelling characters and relationships. This will forever be one of my favorite books, and part of that is because of the ending. Without spoilers, because everyone should read this, the girl finds her true love, but in the most unexpected way. And it’s not cliche, it’s real and both heart wrenching and uplifting. Ooof, now I want to go read it again!

Talia: Mistborn. I mean the end of the whole trilogy. I’m a big fan of Brandon Sanderson anyway, but one of the most compelling points of his writing for me is how masterfully he weaves together a perfect ending. For me, perfect isn’t expected. Using Brandon’s own words, the best endings are “surprising yet inevitable.” I never would have guessed the ending, but good triumphed over evil, every loose thread came together seamlessly, and the whole thing left me both stunned and deeply satisfied. 10/10 recommend, even if just for that ending. 

It looks like I have some new books to read!
