Pirithous is back!
But after 3000 years trapped in Hades, what does he have left to live for?
Pirithous, son of Zeus, stumbles out of the Underworld into Upstate New York, a land nothing like the one he left behind so long ago. The price of his freedom: revive the worship of his gods and build Persephone a temple for her help in his escape. But the world is so changed, Pirithous, once a wealthy and honored king, doesn't know where to begin.
Raised in a strict Greek Orthodox family, Thalia has always been something of a wild child. Wild enough to pick up an attractive man off the side of the road in exchange for his help, no questions asked. When he claims he's a son of Zeus, she gives him the benefit of the doubt. But Pirithous is more pirate than anything else, and an interstate road sign isn't the only thing he's happy to steal...
Hunted by centaurs sent by Hades himself, Pirithous is a danger to more than the woman who's taken him in, and even for love and the help he needs to repay his debts, it's hard to justify the risk. Pirithous must find a way to work around the threat of his gods and the complications of the modern world to become the man and the hero Thalia deserves. Unless he'd prefer to return to the Underworld—without any hope of coming back.
A fan-favorite hero in Helen of Sparta and Tamer of Horses, Pirithous returns for another adventure, set in the world you know.
