#Giveaway: STORM OF THE GODS by Amy Braun #UF #NewRelease

Storm of the Gods
Amy Braun
(An Areios Brothers Novel)
Publication date: August 27th 2018
Genres: Adult, Urban Fantasy
The first in a brand new urban fantasy series where gods roam and mortals fight, STORM OF THE GODS follows two brothers who are caught in a conspiracy revolving around ancient artifacts, and find themselves siding with their supposed enemies rather than the Olympian who demands their loyalty…
Thirty years ago, the gods of Greek legend returned to the world. Their return restored their powers, which had been spent in a cataclysmic battle with the Titans. With the ancient deities imprisoned in Tartarus, the Olympians now reside in Néo Vasíleio, formerly known as California.
Twenty-four-year-old Derek Aerios is a war scion, a descendent of Ares, the God of War. He and his brother, eighteen-year-old Liam, capture mythological creatures and rogue scions as part of Ares’s elite military force. As he struggles to cope with his violent powers and the scars of a traumatic childhood, Derek tries to keep the two vows he has made: protect his brother, and never kill a human again.
But when Ares forces him to hunt and kill four rogue scions under Athena’s control—by threatening Liam’s life—Derek chooses to go after the scions in order to save his brother and keep his promise to himself.
Yet the closer Derek gets to the scions, the more he realizes that his orders are part of a deeper conspiracy that put him at odds with his mission and his conscience. Athena may not be the enemy, a traitor could be in their midst, and the Titans could be closer to freedom than ever before.


I was launched off my feet by a gust of wind—or elemental air. It was like giant hands had grabbed the back of my jacket and tossed me aside.
Right into a brick wall.
Pain spiked in my head and back. I landed on the ground, nearly impaled on my own damn sword.
Feet slapped the pavement, closing in on me. I Adapted to see through the blinding light, and could make out legs and the edge of a long coat. I swung my sword at Gage’s shin. The blade sliced open his pant leg and skin. He yelped and leaped back. The light faded, so I clamped a hand over my eyes and used a rapid-fire healing spell to get my vision back.
Then I was on my feet and launching a gout of fire at Darius.
I saw his eyes widen but was already turning my attention back to Gage. He carried a glinting silver sickle in his left hand and was gritting his teeth against whatever pain he felt in his leg. A single look into his pale eyes told me there would be no quiet surrender or easy arrest. He was going to make me hurt. Make me bleed. Try to kill me.
         The Berserker Rage flashed awake. Let him try.
