Overview

Hades and Persephone have a son, and he's feeling trapped in the underworld. Bion's one solace is his friend since childhood, Myrinne, a mortal girl who was adopted by Charon the Ferryman. When Myrinne is kidnapped during a jailbreak from the underworld, Bion's rescue becomes a chance to experience life in the sunlit lands. He promptly falls in with Spartans who are desperate enough to raise the dead to fight a looming Persian army. But meddling in a war the gods have sworn not to interfere with isn't likely to put him in Zeus's good graces -- and Bion needs the god's favor to help Myrinne, who's turning out to mean even more to him than he realized.

BACK ACROSS THE STYX mixes military history with Greek mythology and young love with gusto. A novella of 21,000 words.

Meet the Author

Karalynn Lee likes to wander across the border of fantasy and romance in her writing; forays into history and mythology count for bonus points. Ancient battles are iffier, but then again she grew up hearing critiques of how her school's mascot, a knight, was wearing the wrong period armor, and she once dated a guy who owned an honest-to-goodness sword, so maybe it was inevitable. Her own most expert weapon is the foam dart.
