"When Gods and Vampires Roamed Miami" is the story of when immortal teen goddess Athena is mistaken for a vampire by a desperate youth who refuses to leave her side until she turns him. This tale takes place in the world of the Goddess Wars series for young adults by award-winning author Kendare Blake.
Kendare Blake’s Goddess War series is on my TBR list, but it wasn’t a series that I planned on reading immediately. I sort of stumbled onto this one and upon falling in love with the cover, I just had to give it a shot.
This novella really piqued my interest for ANTIGODDESS and reminded me how much I enjoy Blake’s writing due to how descriptive and vivid it is. This tells kind of a sad story but it kept me flipping pages. The plot was a little odd, and I wish there had been a bit more explanation in regard to a few things.
I like the concept of Athena and the other gods and really want to see more from them. Athena is still a little bit of a mystery in this book as we don’t get to know a whole lot about her here, but what we are shown is intriguing for sure. She is shown to be a very multifaceted character in the way she deals with her tag-along Skylar.
Bottom line, WHEN GODS AND VAMPIRES ROAMED MIAMI is a short story that I would recommend checking out for a quick, entertaining read. You can do so for free on Tor’s website here.
