They say that what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. But what kills the person you love just may turn you into cynical, rueful, immortal Theophilus Bridewood who at almost 2,000 years old has experienced more than his share of tragedy. Determined to live the rest of his life in seclusion, Theo’s agenda is suddenly shattered when a spontaneous encounter with his first love’s reincarnation reignites the ancient passion. Before Theophilus can stop himself, he is drawn to the enigmatic Bryseis Thorne’s side. With disastrous consequences.
Unbeknownst to Theo, Bryce and her older sister Persephone are on the run for the murder of their abusive guardian. Bearing aliases and a determination to begin anew, the two girls are aided by their unique ability to read memories from old objects . . . until this ability places them in the hands of a powerful old witch whose intimate connection to Theo brings him and the dangers currently rocking his supernatural world straight into the heart of rural North Carolina, where Bryce and Persephone have taken refuge. Their hopes for a new life are dashed forever when Theo’s family discovers his weakness for Bryce and descend first with a vengeance, and then with a plan.
Theo’s eldest sister, the brilliant scientist Nyxus Nightwilder, is convinced that the newly crowned king of the gods has won his throne through treachery. She’s not alone in her suspicions, and if her controversial ‘Transience Principle’ (a scientific theory that states gods are in fact susceptible to death) can be proven beyond a doubt, then the new King Poseidon turned tyrant will be implicated in the disappearance and possible murder of his predecessor. Nevertheless, Theo would ignore Nyx’s fears and the potential revolution both were not the father they share (the much famed Zeus, who has been missing for over a century) the previous king in question.
Torn between familial duty and personal desire, Theo is prepared to protect Bryce by abandoning her. However, when her skills are discovered by his family, both she and her sister are immediately blackmailed into using their abilities for ‘the cause'. There is no going back. There’s also no ignoring Theo’s magnetic chemistry with Bryce, her mounting powers, or the past transgressions, lives, and loves that will soon come back to haunt them both.
