House of the Rising Son
Now released for the first time as a standalone e-story, House of the Rising Son, previously published in the Dark Bites story collection from #1 New York Times bestselling author, Sherrilyn Kenyon.
The eldest son in a family of three boys, Aricles had no desire to be a soldier, even though his fighting skills were among the best in the world. He was more than content on his small Atlantean farm, living a quiet, uneventful life. But when his brother is determined to don a soldier’s uniform, Aricles joins him with a promise to their father to bring his brother home in one piece. What he never counts on is how much their new lives will forever change them, or what the risk of a forbidden love will ultimately cost him.
We first learned about Aricles and Bathymaas in Styxx’s book. This is a short novella about their tragic love story. It can be read alone but you should read Styxx to understand it fully. Aricles joins the service of the Goddess Bathymaas who is putting together a force to take on the Gods who are preying on humans. Will they be able to defeat their enemy or will they be torn apart because of treachery? Will their newfound love survive the coming war? This is a great accompaniment to Styxx’s book.
Not much of a read that I would want to recommend this to a friend
