The Hawley Book of the Dead by Chrysler Szarlan

I wasn’t sure what to expect when beginning this novel, but The Hawley Book of the Dead by Chrysler Szarlan makes for a pleasant surprise and combines mystery with a touch of magical flair.

The book alternates perspective between goddess Athena and her brother, Hermes, and the everyday life of teenager, Cassandra, and her boyfriend, Aidan. Both Athena and Hermes are dying slowly, as Athena’s body is slowly becoming filled with feathers whilst Hermes’ is diminishing and leaving him bony and…
