The Flickering Flame
(The Galactic Pantheon #2.2)
TW: suicide ideation
In the millennia since leaving Old Earth, humans have spread far and wide across the galaxy. An array of sub-level gods were created to deal with the expanding population, always to protect the mortals out of sight, never let a single soul distract them from their duties. Or so they thought.
Grace Pendergast is a disgraced reporter with blood on her hands. She thinks the galaxy would be better off without her. But before she can take drastic measures, she encounters Finara, the goddess of fire, who offers Grace the opportunity of a lifetime. Finara might be the most arrogant woman Grace has ever met, but the goddess has a softer side that she has managed to hide from the entire galaxy from millennia.
Until she enlists the services of a particularly stubborn reporter, that is.
As sparks ignite between them, Grace finds herself struggling to choose between carrying out her original plans — or accepting an eternity at Finara’s side.
An F/F novella.
