Waiting on Wednesday (#40)

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, and it's a weekly meme all about the books that are coming out soon that we really can't wait to read.

I was flicking through a Goodreads Listopia and came across this one.  I was intrigued instantly and am now waiting for...

Series: Goddess War, Book One
By: Kendare Blake
Published: 10th September 2013
Published By: Orchard
Found: On Goodreads' YA Novels of 2013 Listopia

Synopsis From Goodreads:
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 las
t breath.
The Goddess War is about to begin.
Goddesses.  Greek mythology.  Kendare Blake, author of the amazing Anna Dressed In Blood.  What girl doesn't wanna read this?!  It looks sooooooo good!! :D

So, that's what I'm waiting for!   What are you waiting for this Wednesday? :D

I can't wait for Antigoddess to be released! I think it sounds like an awesome read, I really loved Anna Dressed in Blood by the same author so I'm hoping this is just as good as it. Great pick!
