After pulling a magical thunderbolt from a stone, ten-year-old Zeus goes on the adventure of a lifetime in this thrilling start to a brand-new series! The terrible Titans—merciless giants who enjoy snacking on humans—have dominated the earth and put the world into chaos. But their rule is about to be put to the test as a group of young Olympians discover their powers and prepare to righteously rule the universe.... Ten-year-old Zeus is mystified (and super-annoyed) by the fact that he keeps getting hit by lightening. Every. Single. Year. He also longs for adventure, as he has never been far from the cave where he grew up. Zeus gets his wish—and a lot more than he bargained for—when he is kidnapped by dangerous, giant Titans! In self-defense, Zeus grabs the first thing he sees—an actual thunderbolt he pulls from a stone that is covered in mysterious markings. Zeus is the only one who can decipher the markings, and sets off on a quest to rescue his fellow Olympians from the evil Cronus. Armed with his trusty thunderbolt (named Bolt, of course), Zeus is on an adventure of a lifetime—and a journey to fulfill his destiny as King of the Gods.

Norse & Viking Mythology, Paranormal & Urban Fantasy Love between wolf shifters and hunters is forbidden for good reasons, but Valkyrie Victoria Storm never imagined her star-crossed affair would ignite a war. With the thirty-year alliance between their peoples shattered and hundreds dead, blame falls squarely on her. Forced to atone for her mistakes, she leads her ragtag pack of werewolves to what should be safe haven. Homeless, hungry, and hunted, it’s their last hope. The Hunter King ruins Victoria’s plans when he arrives in town. She and her pack should run, but the goddess Freya has other ideas. Children are missing. Victoria is tasked with joining the Hunter—her enemy—to stage a rescue. Working together will either heal the rift between wolf shifters and Hunters or force them to tread separate paths forever.

Goddesses Hera, Athena and Venus have had it up to here with the Trojan War. So much devastation - all because of male egos. The worst of the bunch is Achilles, the Greek champion whose powers have made him practically invincible. To stop him would be to end the war. But the only way to stop a man like Achilles is to distract him - with something far more pleasurable than combat... The three goddesses seize their chance when a twenty-first-century beauty named Kat and her best friend perish in a car crash. In no time, they shift the friends' souls into the bodies of a Trojan princess and her handmaiden, having no doubt that Kat will catch Achilles's attention. But can her independent, fiery spirit match the unquenchable fire of his epic rage?
