We all know the story.
How it ended.
He survived and conquered each task.
Became the hero of all heroes.
And in the end he became a legend.
What no one told you is that I was there. I was helping him . . . and when he ascended, I was left behind to rot.
Herakles never knew I sold my soul for his success—he didn’t need to. Had I been enough on my own, he would’ve chosen to stay.
Instead, he rose to full glory.
I was dragged straight to Hades.
I lost track of him for nearly three millennia, but I’ve found him.
I will kill him.
He chose to become a god; I was forced to become a nightmare.
Now it’s time for us to meet again.
I abandoned my family mere moments before the Greek pantheon fell.
‘Till this day the whispers accuse me.
Had I been there, perhaps they could’ve been saved.
But I no longer gave a fuck.
Funny how vanity can blind a male to what really matters.
It took less than a year on Olympus before I began searching for her again.
I never found her.
Now, two-in-a-half-thousand years later, here I am.
An immortal ghost, simply getting by.
I should’ve never left her.
The only thing I had was hoping the last of her mortal days, wherever she ended up, were happy . . .
Joke’s on me.
A darkened, twisted version of my female returns, demanding my head for every one of my sins.
And she shall have it.
But first, I’m saving her from her curse.
I’ll sacrifice every ounce of my sanity left to free her . . . right before I let her end me once and for all.
N. Isabelle Blanco is the Amazon Bestselling Author of the Allure Series, the Need Series with K.I.Lynn, and many others. At the age of three, due to an odd fascination with studying her mother’s handwriting, she began to read and write. By the time she’d reached kindergarten, she had an extensive vocabulary and her obsession with words began to bleed into every aspect of her life.
That is, until coffee came a long and took over everything else.
Nowadays, N. spends most of her days surviving the crazy New York rush and arguing with her characters every ten minutes or so, all in the hopes of one day getting them under control.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 4 out of 5
An interesting twist to the mythology that I am used to. “He chose to become a God; I was forced to become a nightmare. Now it’s time for us to meet again”.
The story of how Herakles lived after becoming a God, and the bad choice he made to sentence the love of his life to an eternity of Hell and torture. Can he show her that he regrets his choice and really does love her, or is it too late?
Megara is sentenced to a life of torture and Hell. She made a bad deal with the sister who despises Herakles, and it is Megara’s destruction as well. She will never forgive him for this betrayal. She wants him dead at her hands and she has been promised her redemption by Hades himself.
This story is tragic, twisted, and hard to put down. I give it a 4-star review. This is my first novel in the Ryze Series, but I will be reading more. I need to find out what happens in the leg of their quest. If you like fantasy and mythology, you really should read this book. Besides it’s another great read in the Sinister Fairy Tales.
