Terpsichore/Cora fell in lust at first site with Myrddin, loved him more for saving her from the Ellylldan/Goblin fire. Seems her half brother Ares, the god of war, is mad about something and attacks Myrddin. The spear of Ares is not a good thing to have sticking out of your body!
I know it sounds like sick humor but it’s really a hoot when the Fates play games with Terpsichore. Her man lays dying, she’s as serious as death, willing to give up anything to save his life and the Fates are playing her for a sucker. This may be a fantasy but I’ve felt like I was in that kind of situation once or twice or a hundred times myself! I have to recommend this book highly. Not only because I like it so much and it’s excellent entertainment but I just can’t take the chance that the gods might get crazy if I don’t!
