Centuries ago, a terrible battle wiped away countless souls, both human and chimeras. The time of the reckoning has finally arrived, and I will pay the price for their suffering.
As an Unblessed Terran, I never gave much thought to the idea of being a mother. It was never an option for me. And then, I was kidnapped by a sexy alien, and now here I am, stuck in a mess I don’t know how to solve. Motherhood is not just an option—it’s my future, and not something I’m prepared for.
All of a sudden, I feel like body and my mind are turning against me. I’ve always wanted to help people with my powers, but the child growing inside me has other ideas. I can no longer control the gifts the gods have granted me.
My only hope lies with my lovers—the same men I’ve turned away from. I can’t fully forgive Jared for forcing me into this situation and I’m still not over the death and destruction Brendan, Knox, August, and Pollux left behind among my people. But they’re the only ones who can help me, the only one who can truly answer the questions that bubble deep inside my heart.
Who am I really? Why was I blessed by Gaia and Tartarus? Why was I chosen by Helios?
The answer might just be my worst nightmare. And as my hopes, dreams, and duties come crashing down like a castle of cards, as tragedy spirals around me once again, the only thing I have left is my final vow.
I will become steel. I will become tungsten. I will become diamond, flesh, and fire, and, no matter what, I will fulfill my destiny.
