    DescriptionGreen is back in Copper Downs. Purchased from her father in sunny Selistan when she was four years old, she was harshly raised to be a courtesan, companion, and bedmate of the Immortal Duke of Copper Downs. But Green rebelled. Green killed the Duke, and many others, and won her freedom. Yet she is still claimed by the gods and goddesses of her world, and they still require her service. Their demands are greater than any duke's could have been. Godslayers have come to the Stone Coast, magicians whose cult is dedicated to destroying the many gods of Green's world. In the turmoil following the Immortal Duke's murder, Green made a god out of her power and her memories. Now the gods turn to her to protect them from the Slayers.

    Review quote
    Praise for "Green" "Lush fantasy filled with exotic locales and exquisite descriptions.... The story is nicely powered by strong mythic undertones and a fresh take on the relationship between gods and mortals."--"Publishers Weekly""A fascinating, difficult character, Green lives in a remarkable world, in which gods walk the earth, and not all people are human. Lake's world-building is stellar."--"Booklist""The richness of [Lake's] rendering of urban life as tapestry is genuinely irresistible."--John Clute, "Washington Post Book World""Running with Green over the city's gilded rooftops, plunging through sewers with her to confront a skinless avatar of the God of Pain, readers will feel the exhilaration of freedom deeply prized, unceasingly sought, and hard-won."--"Seattle"" Times "(Tiptree Award-winning author Nisi Shawl)
