Hera, Queen of Gods
Book 1 of “Goddess Unbound”
October 2, 2012
READ AN EXCERPT

The Fates are missing.

Hera has no choice but to lead a handful of gods to the human world to search for the missing goddesses, even though it means giving up her powers and temporarily becoming mortal. But mortality begins to change Hera in unexpected ways, and it gets much worse after she meets Justin, a boy who defies every prejudice she once had about mortals. Torn between who she's becoming and who she needs to be in order to fulfill her duty, Hera must survive a horde of murderous creatures sent to exploit her new weakness. In the end, only she can stop a traitorous plot conceived by a secret alliance of ancient and new enemies, a plot that threatens to destroy not only the order Hera is sworn to protect, but all of existence itself.

This fast-paced, action-packed adventure plunges you into a world of myth, monsters, and magic, where no one is safe and nothing is what it seems.




Hera, Queen of Mortals (in revisions)
Book 2 of “Goddess Unbound”

SPOILER ALERT

(for anyone who has not read the first book in the series: “Hera, Queen of Gods”)

Athena is dead. Justin is gone. The Heavens have been cut off from the mortal world. Unwilling to risk their own lives, the other gods exile Hera to the mortal world to repair the damage. Alone and mortal once more, Hera must find a way to stop her most ancient and cunning enemy: Ekhidna, the Mother of All Monsters, who is bent on amassing an army to finally claim the mortal world as her own.

But Hera can’t stop Ekhidna alone. She needs help. Mortal help. And so Hera begins a new mission: to seek out and awaken special mortals, mortals with the latent ability to wield divine power, mortals destined to become champions of the Heavens and guardians of Order.

The Age of Heroes has returned.





The Order (work in progress)

Truth.

Truth is everything. Everything is Truth. There is no self. Only Truth. There is nothing else. Only Truth.

Truth.

Calys has repeated those words, along with the rest of the Holy Scriptures, more times than she can count. It is the first task of any initiate of the Order to ingrain those sacred words into their minds until they live them with every breath. No matter what chores the Elders give, no matter how exhausted the initiates are, the words never stop. Their focus never wavers.

All in preparation for the Day, the great ritual that finally inducts the initiates into the Order and reveals the Truth in all its blinding glory.

Calys has waited for the Day with every fibre of her being for as long as she could remember, even more than the other initiates.

Only something has gone wrong.

The Day is almost here, but one of the initiates, Luka, has fallen sick.

But initiates don’t get sick. They can’t. Sickness is a lie. A distortion of the Truth. Those enlightened to the Truth, from initiates to Elders, can't get sick. At least that’s what the Order teaches. And if that's wrong, what else isn't true?

Slowly at first, then faster and faster, Calys’ world starts to unravel, and the truth behind the Order turns out to be more horrifying than she could ever have imagined.
