Even part-god badasses are bound by fate.

Following in the footsteps of Karen Marie Moning (the Fever series) and Erika Johanson (Queen of the Tearling) comes a debut novel about a powerful female assassin who must learn the truth about her past and either join the mythical battle — or walk away for good.


The king of Avalon has assigned Lex the most important job of her life: enter modern-day Greece and assassinate Zeus to stop him from destroying mankind.


As if killing Zeus wasn't hard enough, Lex has to juggle an unwanted marriage proposal from the king, the threat of war, and the most earthshattering realization of all: Zeus was responsible for the murder of her parents. Lex travels to Greece consumed with revenge and hell-bent on destroying the god who stole her parents from her.


Things get even more complicated when she crosses into the human realm. She's discovers she's not the only one hunting Zeus, and is quickly confronted with uneasy alliances, vengeful gods, unsolved murders, a shockingly personal prophecy, and the occasional malevolent portal to another world.


Each dust-up leaves Lex with more questions: Why does the king really want Zeus dead? Which powerful entity is trying to rekindle an ancient war? Why does Nathan, her smoking-hot demon lover, seem so familiar? And just whose side is Hades on, anyway?


As the betrayals pile up, Lex shakes off the devious forces trying to manipulate her for their own cosmic ends, freeing her to learn the truth about her shadowy past and either join the battle — or walk away for good.
