Heidi Wessman Kneale is an Australian author of moderate repute. She writes lovely escapist fiction, especially Romance and Fantasy, with a bit of Science Fiction thrown in. Ever since she learned how to read, she's sought those books that let her escape from everyday life and discover a new world. Occasionally the Real World intrudes, but those moments are soon past, and she can get back to that which ain't real.
She has written short stories, novellas, non-fiction and more, but ultimately, her heart lies with books.
Like most humans, she has a family. She also keeps company with the World's Most Boring Cat. WMB Cat is in a rivalry with Outside Cat, who thinks she belongs to Her Grace. OC used to belong to the neighbours until decided to abandon them and come live on Her Grace's front porch. Outside Cat is allowed to remain, for she keeps away the ghosts.
When Mor-Lath, God of the Dark, proposes marriage to the mortal Adrastea, naturally she refuses his suit. As a worshipper of a rival god, she was raised on chilling tales of this chthonic being who dragged the souls of the unrepentant to Dom-al-gol.
Undaunted by her refusal, Mor-Lath insists on courting her. While he makes it clear he'll only have her willingly, he's making it very difficult for her to say no. She wonders, what is he really after?
Adrastea faces a quandary: if she accepts the Dark God's marriage proposal, she'll lose her very soul. But if she rejects it, the world itself and everything in it might be at stake. Either way, the price is too high.
An engaging new dark Romance Fantasy inspired by Greek mythology.
