Summary from GodReads
Power is a strange and broken thing.
He was the sun god, the god of healing and song.
Apollo has lived alone for centuries, content to spin out the years wandering a new and strange world, lost in the past and endless versions of the future. He has cut all ties with the remains of Olympus and his power, and hidden himself in humanity.
His twin thinks he’s depressed, spending his time in coffee shops, hospital waiting rooms, and concert halls…and nothing matters. Not really.
Iris. With her teasing mouth and soulful music and eyes that remind him of the past.
He can’t resist her smile.
A girl as wild as he was, once, with a poet’s tongue and the body of a siren, who for one night makes him forget all the years and everything he gave up.
And he can’t stop fate.
Gods knows he’s tried.
He can’t help taking her.
Even if he knows better.
When Iris wakes up screaming, caught up in visions of the future, Apollo realizes that he didn’t leave his power quite as far behind as he thought.
He’s the god of prophecy and he’s been running from it, for centuries.
Iris is everything he has to avoid.
Now he has a furious Oracle on his hands, his sister trying to fix him, and someone is killing the gods.
It’s not just his tenuous sanity that hangs in the balance this time.
It’s all of Olympus.
Godhood really wasn’t supposed to be this hard.

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Broken God introduces us into the Greek mythology, or rather at the end of it. What happens to the Gods when their era has ended? Nazarea Andrews gives the answer and she follows with the story of Apollo the god of sun, poetry, song and plagues. We all know him, have seen him in other similar books and he is as famous as Hades, regarding his background in mythology.
But in this story, Apollo is also...mad. Since he is also the god of prophecy, he can give his gift into an Oracle and so regain his sanity.
In our time his story unfolds with flashbacks of the ancient times as Apollo strives to remain sane as also to keep himself away from Iris, the beautiful girl with the guitar.
There is quite the mystery here and the intrigue, which I liked since this story was quite different from what I usually read, regarding the mythology in NA. While the story was good I struggled with the errors in grammar and syntax, which should easily be corrected after a good edit.
In the end, the book was satisfying and I expected nothing less from Nazarea Andrews! ;)
