For The Lover of Mythology Giveaway Hop!

Posted on Updated on

Update: The winner of the giveaway is Lori Harvey! Congrats, and thanks to all who participated!

Welcome to the “For the Lover of Mythology Giveaway Hop”. For any of you familiar with my work, it’s no surprise to you that I’m participating in this hop. See, I love mythology. I mean, I LOVE it. So much so that I actually majored in Classical Studies as an undergraduate (which for those of you who don’t know is basically the study of Greek, Roman and Egyptian Mythology). So it only made sense that when I thought up my current series, it would be heavily influenced by mythology.

My Demons of Infernum series features a group of half brothers who work as interdimensional bounty hunters for the Council governing travel between dimensions. They are half demons, and each was specifically bred by their evil father to have a unique other half. The series uses a lot of reference to Greek and Egyptian mythology. In the second book in the series, MARK OF THE SYLPH, I even reference the Arthurian legend. See, the hero, Taeg, is on the search for a very powerful weapon: Merlin’s sword.

Here’s a bit more about the story:

MotS-500px

Half-demon Taeg is desperate to free his pregnant sister-in-law, who is spellbound to an indestructible book that will create an army of the undead. He is convinced that an ancient sword can destroy the book and the spell forever, but this relic has been hidden for a millennia by a powerful glamour. The clock begins to run out on his search when an old rival goes after the book and Taeg’s family in his quest for revenge.

Librarian Maya Flores has a secret: she’s immune to magic and is well aware of the supernatural beings prowling the streets of New York City. Haunted by a brutal demon attack that took her family, she is on a one-woman mission to destroy the evil demons who did it—and any others who get in her way.

Maya is Taeg’s best hope for uncovering the sword. Unfortunately, she wants nothing more than to kill him. As he fights for her trust and to save his family, she is forced to face the truth that not all demons are evil. And the worst part? She might be falling in love with one, too.

Mark of the Sylph, Book 2 of the Demons of Infernum series, is Now Available!

    I am a Fan of ANY Greek Mythology and Anything to do with Dragons!
    Hercules would have to be at the top of my Greek Myth list though.

    My favorite god in mythology (in Greek myth anyway. I stuck with Greek because it’s the most common or well known I think) is Hephaestus so my favorite stories are related to him. I like the creation of Pandora, the war of the giants, and Hephaestus and the Trojan war. All of those are really great. The ones I don’t like are when he was cast out, either by Hera or Zeus depending on which myth you read, and when he was made to bind Prometheus because they are too sad!

    Thank you for the chance to enter the giveaway. Have a good day one and all!

    Urashima and The Turtle is a Japanese myth about a fisherman who rescues a turtle from a net. The turtle gifts the fisherman with a trip to the dragon God’s palace under the sea. It is a precious story to me…

    I love ALL mythology and although we Americans know most about Greek and then Roman there are so so many others…
