Goodreads Blurb: A vacation in Greece sounds like the perfect way for Kate Winters to spend her first sabbatical away from the Underworld…until she gets caught up in an immortal feud going back millennia. Castor and Pollux have been on the run from Zeus and Hades’ wrath for centuries, hiding from the gods who hunt them. The last person they trust is Kate, the new Queen of the Underworld. Nevertheless, she is determined to help their cause. But when it comes to dealing with immortals, Kate still has a lot to learn….
This novella was a quick read. It was great to see things from Henry’s perspective. He’s not very good at showing his emotions, but you can see how much he cares about Kate.
Kate is determined and makes decisions based on compassion. She looks at situations in a way the rest of the council doesn’t. That is one reason Castor and Pollux believe they can trust her. Pollux has a bad temper. His mood tends to be based on others’ actions, and most of the time it isn’t good.
This short story was full of action, from the opening chapter to the final word. I love how Kate stands up for what she believes in no matter who she is speaking to. The beginning of her six months on the surfaces starts out a little rocky, but she intends to enjoy it as much as possible.
