About the book

Immortals + Boredom = Catastrophe.

Something old and dangerous is waking, making the immortals act out on their crazier instincts.

Odin goes off to Midgard to live in a retirement home. Anubis leaves his job to go on a beach vacation. Mab takes off to New Orleans for Samhain fun. Yue Lao and Cupid exchange roles to the detriment of mortals. Bast, Apollo and a Kitsune out-prank each other – leading to a blood bath. Pan and Poseidon compete to clean up the land and waters respectively, causing more destruction in their wake. Baba Yaga’s job just got worse after Pan and Poseidon’s game. Morrígan gets her powers back after centuries and is out for blood. And Isis is ready to unleash hell on earth to get Osiris back.

They are all so busy with their own stuff, they don’t even realise what is really going on…

Scroll up to buy now and enjoy the hilarity that ensues when bored immortals let loose.

Available as an eBook everywhere.

Audiobook coming soon.

Extract

‘It’s true, your witchiness.’
Baba Yaga’s eyes snapped open and she glared at Danica. The woman barely quailed beneath her glare.
‘Poseidon, Pan, Zeus, Freyja, Hel and Cynthia were all involved.’
She could believe the Greek idiots were the cause. Even that Freyja and Hel were involved. But Cynthia? Clearly, their insanity was contagious.
‘And the children?’
‘They’ve been behaving badly long before the Warp.’
Zoreen held out her hand. Baba Yaga took it and the impressions the woman had gleaned from various mortal minds swept through her vision: children throwing tantrums about toys and sweets, children acting out for perceived slights, children back chatting adults, children taking adults to court for daring to punish them for their misdeeds. Baba Yaga had seen enough. Her blood was boiling and her heart racing. She heard her invisible servants scurrying away.
‘Summon the Riders.’
The four women blanched, bowed and left to do as she had ordered.
