Divine Rivals by Rebecca Ross
Letters of Enchantment series #1. YA / NA science fiction fantasy. Mythology. Cliffhanger.
After centuries of sleep, the gods are warring again. Eighteen-year old Irish Winnow is focused on her family and survival. Her brother left to fight in the war and she hasn’t heard from him. In her worry, she writes a letter to him, knowing she can’t mail it but wanting to express her sadness with gone and the problems with their mother. She slips the letter in the closet and finds it disappears the next day. Even more surprising she gets a letter from someone in return though she doesn’t know who.
Meanwhile Iris works as a competitive journalist, trying to win a permanent position at the newspaper. There she meets and competes with Roman Kitt. She might be interested in him but she needs the job more than a boyfriend. And for now, she can dream and find solace with her mysterious letter companion.

Mythology elements of war in a historical setting. Iris must wear shoes that are too small because there are no other options. A bit depressing as her brother is missing, there is very little money and her mother is depressed and needs help. Roman is a bright beam in the dark story as they progress towards the front. The magical typewriter is obviously important but we don’t know the full story yet.
The war brings danger and death and a cliffhanger.
I had to start this four times before it made itself interesting and I wasn’t aware of the cliffhanger areas of time. I will eventually read the second book but it may be next year before I get to it. I enjoyed The Queens Rising series more. ( )

Sweet story but not up to the hype. Planning to read the next book. ( )

This is a beautiful book. Ross's story of the magical communication between two letter writers draws one in immediately, as the writing is lyrical and touching. The slow development of the romance between two journalists competing for one correspondent's job at the city's key newspaper also plays out in the background of the tensions of an ongoing war between two gods who drag the residents of the country into their service. I've enjoyed Rebecca Ross' writing in the past, and this is another winner. Looking forward to the sequel! ( )

I had read Rebecca Ross's Elements of Cadence series and absolutely loved it. When Divine Rivals popped up with a lot of buzz and was on my library app as an audiobook I borrowed it. I didn't enjoy it quite as much as Cadence but it was pretty close. The 2 main characters are likeable and the romance felt real - the supposed enemies bit was very low key and lasted about 5 minutes. I went to the sequel asap. ( )

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.
