The Face of Apollo

Centuries ago, it seemed that the gods had deserted humanity. But, now, suddenly they are back. Not only the sun god Apollo, but his unrelenting enemy – dark Hades, lord of the Underworld, greedy for human bodies and souls to gather into his domain. And others, including Thanatos, the personification of Death; the enigmatic Trickster; and Hephaestus the Smith, the wonderworker of magical technology. The past meets the present in a struggle of wills, and life will never be the same for young Jeremy Redthorn. Jeremy, a young farm laborer, is unwittingly caught up in the clash when he pledges to deliver a mysterious mask given to him by a beautiful wounded stranger.
