We worshipped the gods. They burned us as their sacrifices. Screw the gods.
Thousands of years after humanity broke the earth, the Olympians rule over scattered city-states. All I ever wanted was to keep my sister safe and avoid the gods. But the day before I’m free, Zeus chose us to be sacrificed.
No matter how devout my sister's faith, I couldn't let her die. So I ran, even though it put our whole city at risk.
Fleeing the gods sent us into the jaws of their enemies, the dangerous rebels. They offered a choice: stay and die for the gods or take our chances with them.
I find new allies in Gabe and Fitz, young leaders in the rebel army. They train my body and my mind, forging me into a warrior while Ronan, the outcast, helps me unlock the secrets of my Promethean powers. This world isn't kind to love, and we all take what comfort we can find.
The gods above shoot to kill and I'm done living under their rule.

“It toyed with my emotions, it made me rethink the way I see mythology, it definitely made me see things from a different perspective... and I loved every moment of it.” -Amazon Reviewer Ladysiren
“I won’t tell what the payoff is, but if you’re a fan of American Gods, or mythology in general you’ll like it. The fact that it’s such a blasphemous concept really appeals as well.” -Emily Einolander -Author Like a Boss
