Just when you thought doomsday was over . . .
Centuries ago Acheron saved the human race by imprisoning an ancient evil bent on absolute destruction. Now that evil has been unleashed and it is out for revenge.
As the twin to Acheron, Styxx hasn't always been on his brother's side. They've spent more centuries going at each other's throats than protecting their backs. Now Styxx has a chance to prove his loyalty to his brother, but only if he's willing to trade his life and future for Acheron's.
The Atlantean goddess of Wrath and Misery, Bethany was born to right wrongs. But it was never a task she relished. Until now.
She owes Acheron a debt that she vows to repay, no matter what it takes. He will join their fellow gods in hell and nothing is going to stop her. But things are never what they seem, and Acheron is no longer the last of his line. Styxx and Acheron must put aside their past and learn to trust each other or more will suffer.
Yet it's hard to risk your own life for someone who once tried to take yours, even when it's your own twin, and when loyalties are skewed and no one can be trusted, not even yourself, how do you find a way back from the darkness that wants to consume the entire world? One that wants to start by devouring your very soul?

Four hundred years ago, the water was still blue.
Four hundred years ago, no one had heard of Sundered Ones or the telepathic "claim" that enslaves them.
Four hundred years ago, humans ruled the Earth. Now, the Earth drowns in black water that kills if touched, and humanity limps into its final hour.
In a small boat, Harry searches for the Hope of Humanity, a machine that--according to legend--can save his people. Instead, he finds Aakesh: the most beautiful and terrifying Sundered One he's ever seen. Claiming is Harry's natural response--
f this Sundered One comes at a price.
The Doctor Will See You Now
A sleep-deprived elf prince. An open-minded doctor. Weird physical therapy. This tale contains a TERRIBLE PUN. You have been warned.
A different take on the Princess and the Frog. I apologize for the pun in the title. (Pfft, who am I kidding? I apologize for nothing.)
