Two cursed families. One marauding god. Zero chance of escape. And now the bad news.
Tuscany, 1603. Andolosia Petasos dreams of being the next Da Vinci, only Fate has cursed him to make hats. It’s not Andolosia’s fault. After all, it was his Greek ancestor who stole Hermes’ teleportation hat and brought down all of Olympus. The gods just don’t forgive that sort of thing.
For Moira, weaving fates is a thankless job — what with the rampant sexual harassment, unequal pay, and incompetent management. And now she must weave a future that will fix the Olympian disaster, the very one she created.
Andolosia’s life changes when the rich and powerful Sansone de Medici commissions a fantastical hat. At de Medici’s Florentine palazzo, Andolosia encounters the feisty Carlotta Lux. She claims de Medici has kidnapped her because she is descended from Daphne, the legendary water nymph. Of course, Andolosia has no choice but to rescue her using Hermes’ hat. But instead of gratitude, she is furious. Carlotta had been within inches of killing her captor.
Sansone de Medici is not who he seems. He is driven by a supernatural urge that demands he never gives up the chase. And Andolosia and Carlotta can’t run far enough to escape him.
