Giveaway and Book Review ~ Lore by Alexandra Bracken

I am thrilled to be hosting a spot on the LORE Paperback by Alexandra Bracken Blog Tour hosted by Rockstar Book Tours. Check out my review and make sure to enter the giveaway!

Lore by Alexandra Bracken

I’ve had Lore in my bookshelf for a while now! It’s one of those books that we saw all over bookstagram, and looked super good, but I never had time to read it! This book tour was a great excuse to start on it, so I signed up immediately!

Lore first came out on the 5th of January 2021, with the new paperback being published on the 3rd of January, 2023! This 480 page book was published by Disney-Hyperion and is perfect for fans of Greek mythology and urban fantasy!


One winner of this giveaway will receive a copy of Lore!

This giveaway is US only and ends on the 17th of January!

Monsters lived in the shadows. To hunt them, you couldn’t be afraid to follow. And the only way to destroy them was to have the sharper teeth and the darker heart.

Lore is one of those few books where you don’t see the twists coming and a plot that is genuinely different! It’s also an incredibly violent book where these families have clung to some really insane outdated traditions to maintain power. The angle with Tidebringer was really interesting, but it was also weird to see how the families treated women.

I did have a problem with how I wasn’t really invested in any of the characters because besides Castor and Lore you don’t really explore any of the other relationships Lore has, we’re just told that these are deep and meaningful but not shown. I did see the romance and I wish the author had done something different with that.

However, the authors writing sucks you in and you kinda just start reading! Yes, there are quite a few names at the start, but I don’t feel like it’s too much information. The twist that we get at the end is one that you really aren’t prepared for because all the signs that could have been pointing towards this could have been that character just being who they are (and they are a bit of an ass).

About Alexandra Bracken:

She sold her first book, Brightly Woven, as a senior in college, and later moved to New York City to work in children’s book publishing, first as an editorial assistant, then in marketing. After six years, she took the plunge and decided to write full time. She now lives in Arizona with her tiny pup, Tennyson, in a house that’s constantly overflowing with books.

Every seven years, the Agon begins. As punishment for a past rebellion, nine Greek gods are forced to walk the earth as mortals. They are hunted by the descendants of ancient bloodlines, all eager to kill a god and seize their divine power and immortality.

Long ago, Lore Perseous fled that brutal world, turning her back on the hunt’s promises of eternal glory after her family was murdered by a rival line. For years she’s pushed away any thought of revenge against the man—now a god—responsible for their deaths.

Yet as the next hunt dawns over New York City, two participants seek her out: Castor, a childhood friend Lore believed to be dead, and Athena, one of the last of the original gods, now gravely wounded.

The goddess offers an alliance against their mutual enemy and a way to leave the Agon behind forever. But Lore’s decision to rejoin the hunt, binding her fate to Athena’s, will come at a deadly cost—and it may not be enough to stop the rise of a new god with the power to bring humanity to its knees.
