This review is based on a "sneak peek" of a few chapters via NetGalley, so when I read the whole thing I'll update!
These early chapters had me yelling at my ereader at midnight. Why why why didn't I wait until it was out? The first chapter of prologue is a bear, nearly unreadable due to density and some weird narrative choices, but once Bracken gets into the actual story it's non-stop and really fun (and very murdery) world-building.
If Lore's life is this much of a mess right now, I'm looking forward to reading how her new pact with Athena ups the stakes. ( )

Lore's the only one left in her family after the brutal murder of her family years prior. She's been doing underground fighting to pay the bills when one day Castor, the best friend she thought was dead, shows up and throws her. Then she finds Athena (yes that Athena) bleeding in the street and makes a pact with her to get them both through the new round of god war. The world-building takes a bit of time to make sense. When I sorted it out, I appreciated that Alexandra Bracken used the characters and myths we know to create this new setup in which the gods have to fight each other every seven years, but...

I'm not sure how much of my enjoyment of Lore is my attachment to Greek mythology and how much is based on the actual book. When I read the first few chapters pre-release, I was totally hooked and requested the full thing immediately. But then I got it and eventually bought it in audio when print failed me after a few weeks. Overall I enjoyed it, even though the end kind of fell apart and some pieces didn't quite come together. Like the romance, which was unnecessary. (If you're going to have a romance, put in the work! Don't just say "hey, they have feelings for each other" every couple of chapters.)

I realize now that this sounds like a negative review and it's not! I can recommend it to fans of Greek mythology and heroines who get beaten over and over--then healed by their best friend/boyfriend/the new Apollo--and keep getting back up. This is a revenge story that works out pretty well.

***

Content Warnings: murder, murder of children, sexual assault of MC as a young adolescent (vaguely described in a memory, has lingering impacts), rape as a theme throughout which makes sense given Greek myths, terminal illness, lots of violence and fighting, references to girls being raised and sold off to other members of the Agon families as teen brides, lots of other messed up stuff

I purchased this audiobook but received an ebook review copy prior. ( )

I just feel very underwhelmed, and I don't like it. There were a few core elements missing for me, thus the feeling of underwhelment. (Yes, I probably definitely made up that word. I can't bring myself to care.) On top of that though, I'm also irritated that I kept lugging this book to and from work until I finished it and for nothing other than underwhelment. Hmph. ( )

I was given an ARC of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

Bracken opens strong with an intriguing overview of this book's world building presenting greek mythology in a brand new way. Zeus, always known for his complex punishments, have sentenced the greek pantheon to become mortal every seven years, where the lineages of greek heroes have the opportunity to kill them and become gods themselves. An ancestor and one of the last remaining original gods team up for a fascinating revenge story!

Lore is a refreshing stand alone book about ancient bloodlines hunting the Greek gods that is great for novice and dedicated lovers of greek mythology alike. I eat up everything involving Greek mythology, but this was truly something special! There is edge-of-your-seat action and betrayals, and a fun new way to look at New York City. This is another must-read from Bracken! ( )

Actual Rating: 3.5 stars
Review: This book was . . . okay. I really liked the idea of the book, and the storyline was set out well. However, there were multiple times I was left confused as the storyline moved along. Also: the names of the families was confusing. It was clear which family was which. However, some families had unique names completely unrelated to the ancestor, yet others were just the name of the ancestor with an “-ides” added at the end. It wasn’t consistent, and it kind of bothered me. Lore also seemed to be a basic MC. This wasn’t a big issue, but the only thing she had going for her was her lineage, her friendship with Castor, and her alliance with Athena. This book was enjoyable for what it is, but I don’t think it’s worth the hype. ( )
