There’s trouble in Paradise.
Founded hundreds of years ago, the Fourth City was meant to be a refuge. A place of peace, a retreat from the world. But in the wake of Zion’s destruction, it has begun to fester. Gods of many nations gather together here, under the watchful eye of the Good King, the Defender of Christianity, Prester John. Now, his reign is being challenged, the Horsemen are getting in, and he’s called in a neutral party.
Queen Betty, the goddess Bastet, is the only god strong enough to fix things who doesn’t already have a side in this game. But she’s not at her best. Her human is far away, safe from the machinations of the gods, leaving her weak. She is tormented by old memories resurfacing of why she left the gods in the first place. She’s surrounded by servants of the Horsemen. Cannibals, serial killers, billionaires.
And most ominous of all are the rumors of a man who fights gods, and wins. A man who destroyed the Fifth City. A man who they say is in Paradise, even now. And there’s only one reason he could be there. To destroy the Fourth City.
And the question she has to ask herself is, does Betty even want to stop that?
