Greece is steeped in all.
Myth: The ancient gods
with their Pantheon
Something from days long past...no longer a part of the world today...
...no longer relevant
in this age of automobiles and airplanes.
man transforming what was, creating what will be.
The gods and the demons are gone, long buried in the annals of time...aren't they?
But suppose, just suppose Myth,
Legend, and Reality exist in this,
the current plane of man's existence?
What if the twin sons of the Mighty and Immortal Zeus
came forth to battle beside a few of the lesser immortals, satyrs,
to name a few?
And what of the demons brought forth from their hibernation by Man's fluid need to always change...improve on what history created before?
Polydeukes and Kastor, sons of the powerful King of the Gods, Zeus, one born into immortality, one not, bound together by more than the blood of a mortal mother and immortal father enter the fray.
Rising from the portals reopened by man are the Lamias...snake women...
all with lethal intent.
But when Kastor, the mortal son dies in battle, Polydeukes begs, borrows, and enters into a pact his father Zeus, and his uncle
Hades, Lord of the Underworld will take great exception to.
Can Polydeukes find a permanent solution to the current pact that allows Kastor to live one day and Polydeukes to live the next...each stepping into the life of Kastor, the mortal warrior?
Will Polydeukes find the answer before Kastor learns the truth invalidating the tenuous pact...and before either Dear Old Dad,
or Uncle Hades,
realize the crime no Immortal is allowed to commit has been committed...bringing the dead back to life? A crime that could mean spending forever in the land of horrors,
Tartarus, guarded by the stuff of nightmares
Cerberus, for both sons.
is an amazing journey into the Pantheon of the Greek Gods and the roles they play in our modern times.
