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.

While this book has it's flaws, it's very enjoyable. On the surface, Rebecca Ross is offering up a story that is contrived. Characters appear and disappear as needed, and external conflicts arise and fade whenever is convenient. The world itself is only shallowly fleshed out, which is a shame, because it has a fun queernorm steampunk fantasy of manners setting, but with epic god wars. It could have been unique if Ross spent time immersing readers inside her world with her admittedly beautiful prose. Instead the plot, the prose, and the setting are just in the background to service the love story at the center of the narrative.

The love story itself is a tearjerker and handled well. It might have been easier to adored if Ross didn't bother explaining the lore behind her setting, but instead expected readers to simply accept that magic exists, works, and brings the characters together in a tense environment, facilitating a high stakes love story, which can be appreciated without fully understanding the rules and history of this shallow and contrived world. This book has a lot of potential, but it would have been better in the hands of a literary author who uses magical realism, rather than someone who wanted to write a more traditional YA fantasy romance book. In other words, outside of the built in fantasy romance crowd, a lot of people might wish Divine Rivals was more like This Is How You Lose the Time War. ( )

In love with the book but so upset with the ending ( )

Despite being deeply concerned for her brother Forest, who left months ago to fight in a war between the gods and hasn't been heard from since, Iris places her focus firmly on her mother, who is not well, and on earning a promotion at the local newspaper ahead of her competition, Roman Kitt. As a form of catharsis, she types letters to Forest, leaving them in her closet. Oddly, the letters disappear, which offers hope that Forest is receiving them, but eventually a reply — most assuredly not from Forest — appears.

This was a book I dearly hoped to love, based on its description, what I'd heard about it and its gorgeous cover art. The premise — two people exchanging anonymous, magical letters — was so full of promise! Unfortunately, my interest lasted through only the first 3/4, at which point the whole thing just petered out. The worldbuilding ultimately failed for me before reaching a crescendo. The insertion of baseball, of all things, felt wildly incongruous. The weirdly abrupt/forced proposal and wedding made my purity culture spidey sense tingle, à la Stephenie Meyer's The Host. Sorry to say I'm not really interested in the sequel. ( )

Entertaining and well-paced, this fun first series installment has some predictable “You’ve Got Mail” vibes but those tropes are well-worn for a reason. Engaging, fun and I look forward to reading more! ( )

The drama really did have me drawn in. I loved the banter between Roman and Iris. The pacing was really good and the cliffhanger would have been unbearable if I didn’t already have the sequel queued up. ( )

It is one of the best published book that I had ever read, The gods are at battle once more after sleeping for millennia. However, Iris Winnow, who is eighteen, only wants to keep her family together. Her brother is absent from the front lines, and her mother battles addiction. Her greatest chance is to get promoted to columnist at the Oath Gazette.

Iris sends letters to her brother to distract herself from her anxieties, and she conceals them under her wardrobe door, where they end up in the hands of Roman Kitt, her chilly but attractive competition at the paper. He writes Iris back in secret, and the two of them create a bond that will accompany Iris to the front lines of conflict—for love, the future of humanity, and her brother.

For Isabel Ibañez,
who read this book as I wrote it,
who convinced me to add Roman's POV,
& who occasionally lets me get away with things.

P.S. I'm talking about Chapter 34.
