    Summary

    Prometheus came to both Zeus and Poseidon and warned them that the child Thetis would bear would be greater than the father, though he did not explain just how much greater this child would be. Zeus decided to be as cautious as possible and not wed Thetis to any god for this was not a chance he would take. He married her off to a mortal, Peleus and together conceived Achilles whom was promised immortality and godhood but that was not enough for Achilles, he had to have Patroclus as well and he'd challenge the gods to get what he desired.

    Summary

    A few years into his reign, Henry IV is troubled to learn of mystic attracting followers to his revels in the Forest of Hainault. Some say he's a saint or prophet, others that he's a vision of Christ himself. Many have noticed that he resembles the old king, Richard II.

    Prince Hal - always curious about the latest novelty - takes his friends to see, but his cynicism melts away in the presence of the charismatic, kingly figure, and so eventually does his sanity.

    Henry must take action to restore order to his family and his kingdom, but what chance does order stand against this powerful and delicious chaos?

    A reworking of Euripides' Bacchae in the world of medieval Christianity and Shakespeare's histories.

    Summary

    When the strange priest arrives at the palace Pentheus is taken aback. Relief is short lived, soon replaced by dozens of other worries. Who is this lackadaisical man with honey-coloured hair? Sashaying across the thrown room, light as snowfall. Sharp violet eyes, half-lidded in perpetuity. Creamy skin flushed a seductive pink at the smooth cheeks, the plump wine-stained lips, the gently sloping collarbones…
