From Emily R. King, author of the Hundredth Queen series, comes an epic novel of ancient Greece, Titans and treachery, and the women who dare to rise up against the tyranny of the Golden Age.
My mother told me that men would speak about the Golden Age as a time of peace and happiness for allâ€¦ However, the women of our age would tell a very different storyâ€¦
Cronus, God of Gods, whose inheritance is the world. Among his possessions: women, imprisoned and fated to serve. The strong-minded Althea Lambros controls her own fate and lives to honor her dying motherâ€™s plea to protect her two sisters at all costs. Altheaâ€™s journey toward crushing the tyranny has begun. It is a destiny foretold by the Fates. And she is following their visions.
On the southern isle of Crete, hidden among mortal women who have fled the Titans, is the Boy God, son of Cronus and believed dead. He shares Altheaâ€™s destiny to vanquish the Almightyâ€”fate willing. Because Cronus has caught wind of the plot. Heâ€™s amassing his own forces against Altheaâ€™s righteous rebellion and all those who will no longer surrender or run. There will be war. If sheâ€™s to survive to write their history, the indomitable Althea must soar higher than any god.
