The Irascible Immortals Series

They’ve been alive forever. They’ve been bored for some time. And now they’re showing it.

30 minute fantasy short reads.

One immortal. An eternity of boredom.

Odin used to have it pretty good: whole nations worshipped him, named a day of the week after him, believed him to be wise.

These days, though, not even the pets of other immortals respect him.

He is tired.

And there is only one place to go when you have fewer tomorrows to look forward to: an old age home in Midgard.

This is the first book in the Irascible Immortals series.

One immortal. An eternity of thankless drudgery.

Anubis has never had it great. Not even in the heyday of Egypt. And though his job has never become obsolete, it’s not like anyone ever thanks him for guiding the recently dead to their Egyptian afterlife.

But then they want to outsource his job to a no-name brand.

Enough is enough! Anubis takes off for a well-deserved holiday and all hell breaks loose.

Scroll up to buy now and find out how Anubis and his friends from other pantheons save the world.

This is the second book in the Irascible Immortals series.

One immortal. An eternity of dull dreams.

Mab is the queen of dreams. And nightmares.

But when thinking up dancing unicorns for humans to dream of fail to amuse her, she knows that she needs a break.

New Orleans during Halloween seemed like a good idea.

Until the nightmares under her rule start running amok in the mortal realm.

Scroll up to buy now and find out how Mab regains control over those in her dominion.

This is the third book in the Irascible Immortals series.

Stray arrows. Twisted string. Choreographed dancing.

When love gods get together for a convention, things are bound to get out of hand. Especially when Cupid keeps showing off and the Aztec god of love and games turns everything into a competition.

Yue-Lao only showed up to get Aine’s attention, yet he gets pulled into the madness.

Will the mortals survive this love god convention or will they be forever caught in the unrequited love triangles caused by two love gods trying out each other’s talismans?

This is the fourth book in the Irascible Immortals series.

One immortal. An eternity of fools.

Kit has had a full life playing tricks on mortals and immortals alike. But the Age of Information has taken the fun out of everything. She’s tired. She’s bored.

Since the leaders of most pantheons had agreed on setting up rest homes for immortals in the mortal realm, she had found one to her liking and had happily taken up residence.

Just one thing bothers her: Apollo.

The boy-god doesn’t believe in leaving others in peace. Limericks, pranks, archery practice indoors – he knows no bounds.

When Apollo’s antics threaten the peace between pantheons, only Kit can stop bloodshed with her trickery. But does she really want to?

Scroll up to buy now and find out if Kit will stop the other immortals from stringing Apollo up with his own intestines for his tomfoolery.

This is the fifth book in the Irascible Immortals series.

Tsunamis, tornados, and typhoons… of garbage.

Cynthia, moon goddess and protector of Earth, has issued an ultimatum: either Poseidon and Pan clean up their act, or the Norse pantheon will take over their duties.

With Zeus, Freyja and Hel there to observe, Poseidon has no choice but to let go of his laid-back ways and see what all the fuss is about. At least his sons Triton and Pegasus are on his side…

As the Greek god of storms and water realises the full extent of the damage done to his domain, can he keep his cool or will his notorious temper get the better of him?

Scroll up to buy now to find out how the Earth fares under Poseidon’s awakened powers.

This is the sixth book in the Irascible Immortals series.

Magic. Nightmares. Naughty children.

A witch’s work is never done.

Baba Yaga had taken the last century off to focus on herself. And then a couple of immortal idiots went and created the Warp – which only a few mortals blame on climate change; the rest blame those who are not like them.

A bargain is struck and she sends her fellows out to investigate: the way children are behaving is even worse than advertised. As the one who had always struck fear into the heart of misbehaving children, it is her duty to return to guide mortals. And stop them from killing each other.

But will she do it alone? And what has she learned about witchcraft in the last hundred or so years?

Scroll up to buy now to find out how Baba Yaga will educate – or terrorise – modern children of all ages.

This is the seventh book in the Irascible Immortals series.

Magic. Power. War.

Morrígan had been separated from her powers for far too long. But thanks to the foolish actions of several immortals, she is in control of herself again.

Though the need to avenge herself burns within her, she needs to do something first: regain her full strength. Walking through a city destroyed by the Warp, causing strife as far as she goes, another need builds within her…

Cry ‘havoc!’ and let slip the dogs of war!

Laughing at the foolishness of other immortals trying to stop her, she avenges the dogs abused in the city overshadowed by toxic clouds and teaches humans to do what’s right instead of what’s easy – even if it is done with blood and pain.

Can anyone stop her from destroying the human race in favour of animals?

This is the eighth book in the Irascible Immortals series.

Magic. Subterfuge. Unremitting love.

Isis had waited millennia to be reunited with her one true love – Osiris. Now that the mortal realm is all but destroyed, it is the perfect time to do some illicit magic.

And though bringing Osiris back to the living world has its cost – the walking dead – Isis had never been as happy as the moment they are together, listening to a live performance by a has-been boyband and eating chicken.

But all is not as it seems. Can Isis overcome her ancient fears and find her way back into love?

Scroll up to buy now to find out if all the odds are truly stacked against them.

This is the ninth book in the Irascible Immortals series.
