The first time Ty died he was five, the second time he was seven. He's always believed his third death will be the final one. Now he may find out.

Greece, 1958. Ty's childhood is twenty years in his rear-view mirror, along with his near-death experiences and the accompanying visions of terrifying gods. But when he accepts an invitation to gamble in a game of chance, his peaceful reprieve is shattered. Cast now into the underworld to repay his debt, his fate quickly entwines with sleeping gods and the factions that seek to control them. But even the gods and monsters of Erebus tremble at a new enemy; one powerful enough to destroy them all.

A fantasy thriller by award-winning author, L. D. Colter. Get ready to dive head-first into an alternate 1950s Greece where conjoined queens rule a nation perched above an underworld filled with demi-gods and monsters, and a mortal man holds the key to the fate of the gods.

"Shunning clich's, Colter crafts a suspenseful plot that dashes along to the rousing ending... Fans of Greek myths and celestial fantasy will root for Ty and eagerly await more adventures in this polished world." - Publishers Weekly

About the Author

Liz has followed her heart through a wide variety of careers, including farming with a team of draft horses, and working as a field paramedic, Outward Bound instructor, athletic trainer, and roller-skating waitress, among other curious choices. She also knows more about concrete than you might suspect. Her novels written under the name L. D. Colter explore contemporary and dark fantasy, and ones written as L. Deni Colter venture into epic fantasy realms. She's an active SFWA member with multiple short story publications, and her debut novel "A Borrowed Hell" was the winner of the 2018 Colorado Book Award for Science Fiction/Fantasy. Following a long interlude in Southern and Northern California, she returned some years ago to her home state of Colorado, where she spends her time with her husband, dogs, horses, and writing (according to her husband, not always in that order of priority).
