A Requiem for Poseidon

Heavenly Wars 1.5

As war rumbled through the heavens, the seas also boiled with battle. Poseidon was one of the first to succumb. Now the alliance of evil gods turn their sights on the Inuit pantheon.

Barely surviving the initial strike, the goddess Sedna seeks the sanctuary of the oceans and her old friend Jormungandr. She knows the Norse World Serpent isn’t the evil people believe him to be.

Isolated in his watery home, Jormungandr has escaped the war until now and happily welcomes Sedna into his refuge. But when the alliance of evil releases the Kraken, can even gods find sanctuary in the ocean depths?

A Requiem for Poseidon is a short tale, and an additional part of the Heavenly Wars series. Chronologically it should be read between books 1 and 2 of the series.

Daughter of Darkness – Cover reveal

The latest chapter in the Heavenly Wars saga launches in June, and I’ve just been advised it will be going up for presale in the next few days, so I’d like to share the cover and blurb:

600x900

Blurb:

“It wouldn’t be the first time I’d been kicked out of heaven.

After a thousand years in exile, the goddess Nott learned to live without interaction with the other Norse Gods. Hidden away amidst the devastation of a dead heaven, and working to aid the besieged mortals of Midgaard, Nott found peace. The night is her realm, and darkness her best friend. But war finds her. And her grandfather, Loki, wants her at his side, when he conquers Asgaard.

 

And then there’s Tyr . . .

 

Visions of the Night Goddess have haunted Tyr’s dreams for a millennium. Unjustly accused, she’d fled Asgaard before he could stop her. Now, circumstances offer him an opportunity to reconnect with the woman who’d walked away from the Golden Realm—the woman who’d eluded him for a thousand years, yet always haunted his dreams. But Nott’s family ties threaten to put the goddess on the other side, in a war that’s blazing across the heavens.

A Requiem for Poseidon

The next phase of the Heavenly Wars is coming. This summer Daughter of Darkness hits as the sequel to Son of Thunder. In preparation for that event, I have released a short story entitled A Requiem for Poseidon that helps set the stage. The story stands alone, but also factors into the overall story arc of the series.

Seeds of the Heavenly War

In writing Son of Thunder I created a whole new world for my characters to live, adventure and fall in love in. From time to time I plan to bring snippets of my world-building here to my blog. These are things that won’t probably appear in any Heavenly War book, but will bring some additional depth and understanding to the world and the war that rages in the heavens above it.

Seeds of War    

August 1883:

The Egyptian god, Set, looked down on the arid lands below, lands that had once been his. The all too familiar knot of disquiet clenched his stomach. There was a time when Egypt had been the world…and the world had been his. Mortals bowed to him in his temples, gifts and sacrifices were left at his altars. He’d been powerful—worshiped.

Osiris, Isis and the others didn’t understand. They were happy with the freedoms that came with being mythical. Powerless, frolicking fools. Of them all, only Apep stood with Set. The others just didn’t understand.

A few simple plagues, wars and disasters would bring the mortals back into the abandoned temples. Worship would flow like the waters of the Nile, and with worship would come power once again.

In frustration, Set reached for the last of his power, energy stored up over the past five hundred years—mortals, reading the mythology and wondering, for even a split second, if it couldn’t be true. It was belief, in its own way, but it yielded so little power. Still, there was something to draw on. Set needed a grand gesture, and searching the Earth he found a small volcanic island near Java that was ready to blow.

Mt fuji-258

It took only the merest nudge, yet required all the power Set had accumulated, to set the world on fire. Over 36,ooo people perished as a wide area rumbled with the explosion of the volcano. Two-thirds of the island of Krakatoa was destroyed and the shock waves were felt around the world.

“What have you done?” Ra said, as the chief Egyptian gods confronted him.

“What I had to,” he answered, but he wasn’t listening to their complaints. Through the fog another voice had reached out to him.

It’s about time!

Batara Kala from the Balinese pantheon had actually spoken across the barriers that separated the different mythic pantheons. It was unheard of, but it made Set smile. There were others, as dissatisfied as he.
