As the second book in the Dark Princess trilogy, The Hunt continues to reveal the loves, hopes and aspirations of ancient peoples in worlds locked in a war for their very survival. As an imaginative and unique mythology that blends and inverts traditional Christian, Classical, Eastern, and Atlantian mythologies, it challenges us to see gods and monsters in a new light.
The Hunt picks up after Atlantis has been destroyed by the forces of Zeus and Godiva. Godiva will not be satisfied until she is sure Lilith, the daughter she hates, is also dead. The powerful Sajan, Godiva’s husband and Lilith’s father, who was presumed dead, awakens and returns.
On the side of good are Sajan, Godiva’s former lover, Lilith, her daughter, Hades, Cratos, Magenta, vampires, monks, and Atlantians. On the side of evil are Godiva, the archangels and Attila.
Godiva’s evil is unparalleled. She tortures and kills with impunity. She creates a sword to kill immortals, which she gives to Lucifer. She impregnates a virgin who is prophesised to give birth to a son who will destroy the world, and she experiments on animals to create weapons of mass destruction.
The only way to defeat Godiva is for Sajan to kill the baby boy. But can he overcome his conscience and do what he reviles?
Lilith is the planet’s other greatest hope: but will she fall victim to Lucifer’s sword—the only weapon that can kill her?
