Ixion has been spinning endlessly for eons. He spins—enduring the venom of snakes that bind him to a wheel of fire. Millennia have past and yet he still rages! Still curses those who have judged him! Each and every day, he vows that if he ever escapes his eternal punishment he'll set the whole world on fire!

Then, despite the Underworld being sealed long ago, he breaks free...

Sophia, Daughter of Hades, has been tasked to find him at all costs. But she and her team of ancient monsters and demigods soon find themselves navigating a world that has all but forgotten them—dismissing their very lives as simple mythology!

In a rash decision, they find help from a man named John ... a salesman...

Gods help us all!


Thank you for the consideration ... We do apologize for the bawdy language—the author insists that it is necessary for both context and plot. We figure that he’s just doing it because he uses F-bombs for punctuation in his daily life, and believes everyone, for some reason, speaks that way. Also, since we’re an Indie-house ... c'est la vie...

Hmm, French ... well, that does bring up another topic: Not all of the characters in this book actually speak English. However, instead of writing a good chunk of dialogue in ancient languages as LB wanted to, we decided that it would be easier for the reader if we provided the best English equivalent ... unless the story necessitated an ancient or foreign word here or there.

Welcome to Ixion, the First Book of Of Monsters, Gods and Heroes...
