The Whispering Grass
(The Galactic Pantheon #2.6)
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, to never let a single soul distract them from their duties. Or so they thought.
Sanyul Bello is an assassin with an impeccable record — until he goes up against the goddess of savannah, who he has always blamed for his family’s misfortune. When he fails to kill her, he expects a quick death. But Isabis, who is tired of the mortals she cares for not understanding her and what she does for them, decides to give him a taste of what it’s like to be a god instead. And she can guarantee he won’t like it.
Sanyul doesn’t expect to feel sympathy for Isabis and he definitely doesn’t expect to feel something stronger in her presence. But can they both put aside their old pain and anger long enough to let the tenuous connection between them grow into something else?
An ace romance novella.
