Twenty years have passed since the goddess Athene founded the Just City. The god Apollo is still living there, albeit in human form. Now married and the father of several children, the man/god struggles to cope when tragedy befalls his family. On the surface he handles his feelings in his stride; but it's evident that deep down he is unhinged with raw, human grief. Fuelled by a bloodthirsty desire for revenge, Pythias sets sail for the mysterious Eastern Mediterranean to find the man he believes may have caused him such great pain. What his expedition actually discovers, however, will change everything.

About the Author:

Jo Walton comes from Wales but lives in Montreal, where the food and books are much better. She writes science fiction and fantasy, reads a lot, talks about books, and eats great food. She plans to live to be ninety-nine and write a book every year.

Review:

"This continues Walton's fascinating exploration of what it might be like if people lived according to Platonic ideals but with messy human emotions and urges complicating matters at every turn."―Library Journal

"If there's one thing Walton is brilliant at ― and there are roughly 1 million of those ― it's not letting you know quite what kind of story you're in, and leading you to relish the discovery."―NPR
