Review: Winter of the Gods by Jordanna Max Brodsky
3.5 Stars , Reviews / May 4, 2017

Winter of the Gods is another enjoyable installment. It starts with somewhat familiar ground as it kicks off with a murder mystery. Of course, every murder and story behind it is different, so this is not a bad thing. And this time, it appears that the Gods themselves are the targets. Ohhh… fun. Someone out there is trying to take out the gods. Like the first book, I found the mix of mythology and urban fantasy to be fun.

I love when you get an author narration that proves they are just as talented in narrating as writing because no one understands the nuances and characters of a book more than the author. So, you know she nailed the performance. While walking her dog along the riverbank, Selene discovers the mutilated body of a women who is crowned with a laurel wreath. Being the defender of women she is, she won’t rest until she solves this mysterious death, especially as she suspects it was not an isolated case of violence, but a ritualistic killing that may indicate more killings are yet…
