- A hundred black-hulled ships, sailing towards the pillars of Hercules.
Takes place in ancient Mesopotamia. Peeta is under the thrall of a goddess named Clove. Katniss is a slave woman he has taken as a wife. Clove tries to create mischief between the two. Annie is a minor goddess, in the thrall of Clove.
omg, the author left it on a cliff-y for over two years. A week ago, self couldn’t believe the notices dropping in her in-box, multiple chapters dropping in one day. There is a God.
The author had re-written everything from the beginning. Who does that? Who has the time? (Pandemic, thank you)
Anyhoo, the characters are the same, but they are slightly less wild (for which self mourns). Peeta was a real lout. At least he was, in the beginning. When he is a lout, his blue eyes turn completely black. Black-eyed Peeta is Katniss’s enemy, because that Peeta destroyed Katniss’s home city of Troy. Blue-eyed Peeta, however, is really something else!
There are so many gods, but Katniss’s god is a woman named Seeder.
The gods do not simply appear and disappear. They dissipate. There is always a slight blurring of the air as they do so.
Hush, now, self has to return to reading.
