One thing I love about writing is the creative freedom that comes with it. You can choose something completely random and cal it fantasy, or you can choose already created worlds and mash them together. The mix-up between the greek and norse gods in this little number literally had me hooked from the first word. Read on for the blurb to find out how Liz Meldon did it.
The gods have always been more like humans than they care to admit. Love. Lust. Jealousy. Hatred—there’s no escaping any of it.
‘Til Death is a peek into the romantic dalliances of the ancient ones, detailing the beginnings of two very different marriages in two powerful pantheons. Catch up with Loki and Aphrodite centuries before the two fading gods happen upon each other in a martini bar in modern-day Manhattan, and follow the beginnings and endings of their respective marriages here and in the follow-up, Do Us Part, in Spring 2016.
'Til Death is a free 10K short story that takes part in the Lovers and Liars universe. It is an optional prequel to The Maenad of Manhattan, and can be found on Smashwords and its premium retail distributors. It is rated 'M' for mature themes.
The romanic stories weaved into this novel will have you blushing from the moment you start reading. I really love the way Liz has created an entirely new story from worlds that have already been created. Mixing the norse and greek gods is an idea I had never thought of (although I totally wish I had) and it really was a beautiful story.
I also got the mischievous feel behind Loki and his advances on his lady of choice. Something I may have not attempted myself but loved reading all the same. A short and sweet review for a short and sweet book, definitely looking forward to more writing from Liz!
