Forgot the name of the book title and author. Please help!

I know that it's a fantasy book with a war going on and there were Gods in it manipulating things...I think Aphrodite is there with her brother but they were more like children...

 

Sorry, I know it's vague but it's all I remember. Any help would be greatly apprectiated.

Re: Forgot the name of the book title and author. Please help!

I don't know if it's what you are looking for, but I just finished reading a series like that. It's Trudi Canavan's Age of the Five Series, Priestess of the White (1) Last of the Wilds (2) Voice of the Gods (3).

It's about two lands, Northern and Southern Ithania, who go to war. Each land has five gods they worship who meddle with human lives and manipulate them into fighting each other. The two religions are called the Circlians and the Pentadrians.

The only difference I can really see is that the gods in the books are created by the author and not Greek gods.
