The Year-god’s Daughter
For time beyond memory, Crete has sacrificed its king to ensure good harvests, ward off earthquakes, and please the Goddess. Men compete in brutal trials to win the title of Zagreus, the sacred bull-king, even though winning means they’ll die in a year.
Two brothers from predatory Mycenae set out to thwart the competition and their deaths as they search for exploitable weaknesses in this rich, coveted society.
Hindering their goal is the seductive and fearless Cretan princess, Aridela, an uncommon woman neither man can resist, and ancient prophecies, which predict that any threat to her people will spark Goddess Athene’s terrible wrath in a calamity of unimaginable consequences.
The sequel to The Year-god’s Daughter is now available as well, and Book Three, In the Moon of Asterion, will arrive soon.
The Thinara King
Goddess Athene’s white-hot rage incinerates the isle of Callisti and inflames the seas. Crete is left in ruins.
Ash, earthquakes and tsunamis devastate Crete. The will of the survivors fades as the skies remain dark and frost blackens the crops. Aridela must find a way to revive the spirit of her people along with rebuilding her country’s defenses.
More threats loom on the horizon. Greek kingdoms see a weakened Crete as easy prey. And now Chrysaleon, he who carries the ancient title of Thinara King, feels the shadow of Death over his shoulder.
Will he thwart his fate? No other man ever has.
The author of Of Moths and Butterflies, V.R. Christensen, (here is her website) has graciously included me in a Game of Excerpts! (Not unlike A Game of Thrones, I’m sure.) I am chuffed to be tagged in this simple activity called “Lucky 7,” where we authors share seven lines from our current works-in-progress.
The contest rules are:

Below, I’m happily tagging seven very special authors who have written books I’ve truly loved reading, and which have left deep impressions upon me.
In America’s near future, society is changing, due in part to the charismatic figure of billionaire Bram Anastasius, a popular yet mysterious motivational speaker. He wins international sympathy when his wife, Erin, vanishes, and no amount of money or effort can discover what happened to her.
Bram has a secret…a secret shared only by one other person on earth. His brother, Will. They are completely estranged: haven’t spoken in over twenty years. So Bram doesn’t know about the woman who appeared at Will’s door one night, distraught, her memory damaged. He has no idea they’ve been living together ever since.
Ageless, changeless Athene finally deems her child ready to fight for humanity. The year-god’s daughter has lived the lives of women throughout the ages and has reached the seventh labyrinth, the final circle promised by Athene 4000 years ago. All her past incarnations return to her consciousness.
