ANNOUNCEMENT: Zeus, by Wendy Rathbone

Zeus

QSFer Wendy Rathbone has a new MM fantasy book out in her Fantastic Immortals series: When I throw the lightning and summon the thunder, it isn’t always out of anger, but often from a love so all-consuming it could only be the effect of Eros himself.

And he is as ancient as the myth of time itself, an immortal with powers and glamour beyond my ability to imagine. He struggles to teach me … Read more
