The latest from the number one SUNDAY TIMES bestseller Rebecca Ross
When two young rival journalists find love through a magical connection, their fate depends on their facing the depths of hell … together.

After centuries of sleep, the gods are warring again …

All eighteen-year-old Iris Winnow wants to do is hold her family together. With a brother on the frontline forced
to fight on behalf of the Gods now missing from the frontline and a mother drowning her sorrows, Iris’s best bet is winning the columnist promotion at the Oath Gazette.

But when Iris’s letters to her brother fall into the wrong hands – that of the handsome but cold Roman Kitt, her rival at the paper – an unlikely magical connection forms.

Expelled into the middle of a mystical war, magical typewriters in tow, can their bond withstand the fight for the fate of mankind and, most importantly, love?

An epic enemies-to-lovers fantasy novel filled with hope and heartbreak, and the unparalleled power of love.


There is nothing of Rebecca Ross’s that I don’t like. And Divine Rivals is included on that list. This book is SO good. To me it is a steampunk fantasy but with high fantasy elements. In some ways…it reminded me of the world of Fullmetal Alchemist. This is a good thing, I was obsessed with that show (still am tbh) years ago.

Anyways, Iris as a character was delightful. I loved her because I felt that she was real, and I liked her determination.

The book was also atmospheric, something Ross can do really well along with world building. And that here is a triumph. There are so many good quotes to pick through in this book, and I can’t wait to share them with you when the book comes out!

I liked that this book has a different feel to it – also a Narnia feel. Whatever, just know that I loved the feel of this book!!! (This needed like three exclamation points)

Iris and Roman were SUCH a combination. Another aspect of the book that I loved.

Ross is a supremely talented writer, and there are many lyrical sentences in the book that make me pause and think and enjoy.

This book was amazing to read and I’m going to need the sequel ASAP.
