Julianne | 143 comments I noticed there isn't a thread about Mytholgy or Immortals and Gods so I thought I'd start one.

RULES
main focus is Immortals/Mythology unless noted otherwise**

if Immortals/Mythology isnt a major part of the series please do not list it.

if a series is listed already please do not add it twice

if there is no cover photo please wait to list until there is one.

PLEASE NOTE WHETHER IMMORTALS/MYTHOLOGY IS VERY MINOR IN THE SERIES, WHAT THE MAIN FOCUS OF THE SERIES IS.

BR Kingsolver (brkingsolver) | 19 comments Based on Celtic mythology of the Sidhe and the Goddess Anu in a UF setting. The mythology provides the underlying explanation for the paranormal Gifts of the characters.

J.D. Field (jdfield) | 7 comments Song to Wake to (Levels, # 1) by J.D. Field
Has immortals, who have been sleeping since mythological times and wake up as teenagers. I won't give away any more than that, but they're not gods...


message 13: by Jai (new)

Jai I've really enjoyed the Immortals After Dark series, but it's got some R-rated moments, and some silliness.

A Hunger Like No Other (Immortals After Dark, #2) by Kresley Cole is the first in this long, involved series.

Gabrielle Blaque/~Bhlack Benehvolence~ (werewolfgrl1) | 304 comments You might want to look into The Of War series by Lisa Beth Darling I think it mainly focuses on the Greek Gods and Goddesses and one God in particular Aries the Greek God of War, it's main focus is about how Aries meets and falls for a young woman named Alena who appears on an island where Aries was basically exciled by his family.

I've only read the first book but I was in love with it from the first few chapters, I'll be fair and say that although I think it's a wonderful book there are some scenes that may make you uncomfortable so just be weary.

First Book: The Heart of War by Lisa Beth Darling

Second Book: Child of War - A God is Born (Of War # 2) by Lisa Beth Darling

I'm not entirely sure how the rest of the book order goes, but I'm sure you can find that out,it looks like they're five books in the series so far.

April | 1 comments Marking Time (The Immortal Descendants, #1) by April White First book of The Immortal Descendants series, with Time, Fate, Nature, War and Death all Immortals.

Jen (reader44ever) | 4475 comments Laurell K. Hamilton's Merry Gentry series is full of immortals who are sidhe. There isn't as much sex in this series as in the later books of her Anita Blake series, but if you're not a fan of sex in your reading, you'd definitely want to stay away, since as I recall each book has at least some (and no single love interest, either). The sex in this particular series, however, isn't as "bad" as the sex in the Anita Blake series, since 1) it's existed in the multiple-partner format since book one and 2) the main premise of the books is that to become Queen of the Unseelie, Merry must become pregnant.

Rachel Annie (snapdragoness) The Eternal Guardians Series by Elisabeth Naughton is about warriors descended from ancient Greek heroes.

Right now I'm reading the first in the series, in which the hero is a descendant of Hercules.

Momreadstoomuch | 35 comments I never learned how to post the pictures, but I really like the Seressia Glass novels. They include Egyptian Mythology and are so far more UF and less romance.

I really enjoyed the Percy Jackson books, The Heroes of Olympus not as much. Now wondering if I should try The Kane Chronicles(Egyptian Mythology) or will I be disappointed?

Alvin- I don't think you would. I loved both Percy Jackson and Heroes but I couldn't do the Kane series. It's written in first person from the kids POV. Which would be nice for a young reader but it made me want to slam my head into a brick wall. Just my personal opinion though. If you really dig Egyptian mythology or don't think the POV would bother you, go for it. But I struggled to get through the first one.

I really wanted to read the Kane series, but first person and the kids POV might be too much.

Alvin | 41 comments Thanks Mallory & Arzella! Appreciate the feedback. Not really into first person, so good to know. *Now off to hunt for the next possible read*

Anne Berkeley (aberkeley) The Tempestuous series has demigods, berserkir, light elves, dragons, a little humor, sarcasm and, of course, romance.

Kellie (track_star24) | 23 comments Sorry group, I haven't learned to add pictures but that doesn't stop me from recommending these great reads.

So, how about Laura Kaye's Hearts of the Anemoi series, contains four books about Gods of the Elements. Titles are: North of Need, South of Surrender, West of Want and last but not least East of Ecstasy.
