Before the New Moon Rises

By Cathy Hird

Young adult, Action & adventure | Paperback, eBook


When Poseidon's ambition is thwarted, Princess Thalassai expects to enjoy the luxury of peace in the valley of Ephyra. Instead, the Earthshaker's revenge strikes like forked lightning. He recruits Aphoron, disgraced prince of Ephyra, to set off an attack on her home city, then releases a monster shark. The Earthshaker lays a sleeping spell on the four kings who hold sway in the lands claimed by the ancient goddess Eurynome. With the king under Poseidon's spell, Thalassai struggles to maintain order in the city. Her fiancé Brizo sails to defeat the monster shark, but in the first encounter, the shark destroys the ship's rudder and oars. Her brother Melanion chases after Aphoron and uncovers the plan to attack their city. As other Olympian gods who are angry with Poseidon are drawn into the fray, conflict threatens to engulf the lands of Greece. Will it spread to the mountain of the gods? Will the young leaders find a way to defeat the Earthshaker's plans and restore peace?
