Recession of the DivineeBook - 2013
Urban fantasy author Hillary Jacques spins a mesmerizing tale of investigation and gods for the Carniepunk anthology--a collection of darkly supernatural short stories you won't be able to put down! Olivia Locke, formerly the Greek titan Mnemosyne, has built a nice little life for herself. She's bound her ancient powers, has a steady job performing inspections for an insurance company, and even goes to the dentist. But when Olivia is sent to a traveling carnival, she discovers that the claims she's reviewing aren't accidents at all but rather symptoms of a depraved bargain struck to keep the operation afloat. And, at the heart of the carnival is a force intent on capturing her very soul. If there's one thing that will make a retired goddess fight back, it's the threat of imprisonment. Been there. Got the metaphorical T-shirt. Not going back.
