DIVINE RIVALS by Rebecca Ross
When two young rival journalists find love through a magical connection, they must face the depths of hell, in a war among gods, to seal their fate forever.
After centuries of sleep, the gods are warring again. But eighteen-year-old Iris Winnow just wants to hold her family together. Her mother is suffering from addiction and her brother is missing from the front lines. Her best bet is to win the columnist promotion at the Oath Gazette.
To combat her worries, Iris writes letters to her brother and slips them beneath her wardrobe door, where they vanish—into the hands of Roman Kitt, her cold and handsome rival at the paper. When he anonymously writes Iris back, the two of them forge a connection that will follow Iris all the way to the front lines of battle: for her brother, the fate of mankind, and love.
Shadow and Bone meets Lore in Rebecca Ross’s Divine Rivals, an epic enemies-to-lovers fantasy novel filled with hope and heartbreak, and the unparalleled power of love.
MY THOUGHTS: Divine Rivals
Has a book ever taken your breath away?
Where you’re not sure you’ll ever be the same again after reading it? The author takes your soul and dips it into the ink of the story and finding, once you’ve read the last words, you’ve been washed ashore on a deserted island, watching the horizon for a ship that will take you home, wondering all the while if you’ll ever find something as lush and heartbreaking as the pages you were completely absorbed in?
Sublime, Divine Rivals will pull you into an adventure of a lifetime, holding you captive from the opening pages to the very end. I was enthralled.
There are so many reasons to pick up a copy of this brilliantly written book.
Here are just a few:
I devoured each chapter, my emotional state in a tangle of heartbreak, awe, and joy. I ugly cried in this one friends and it has been a while since I’ve needed an entire box of tissues.
A Few More Thoughts
And the ending!!!
I need the next book. 😭
Rebecca Ross is beyond talented who is capable of transporting readers into a world fully envisioned, your senses transfixed on every lush and heartbreaking detail, and characters you want to bundle up into your heart and never let them go.
I want Iris and Carver to have their happy ending. Please Rebecca make that happen. 🤞
Run, don’t walk, to grab a copy of this one.
Happy Reading ~ Cece
