Description

Caenus and The Quiver of Artemis, the first installment in the "Of Kings And Gods" Trilogy, is a classically Ancient Greek tale that explores the, sometimes complex, battle between love and pride. Told in a way that harks back to the Iliad and Odyssey, the lives of mortals become intertwined with those of the Gods. The result is a fast-paced journey throughout the Aegean and to The Underworld, from a no-holds-barred competition to a wedding, in which some of the characters turn out to not be who you expect.
As the annual Festival of the Sun in Corinth approaches, Apollo's Tournament takes center stage, cloaking high stakes for a select few among its throngs of competitors and spectators. Caenus, the unaccomplished prince of Iolkos, expects to confirm to himself, and prove to his father, his worthiness to command the military. In crossing swords with Makedon, the powerful, and ruthless, young prince from Neapolis, the two are joined on a criss-crossing path that links their destinies far beyond Corinth, drawing in those they hold closest: chief among them, Adriande a beautiful and elusive young woman who captures Caenus' heart then mysteriously disappears the night before the tournament's decisive event, only to reappear later as Makedon's bride-to-be.
Disappointed after losing the tournament, Caenus redoubles his training efforts, seeking out mentorship from Kheiron, the legendary centaur. During Caenus' journey of self-discovery, with hot blood having had a chance to cool, the Iolkosian royal family is invited to Makedon's wedding. Caenus attends the wedding ceremonies only to be blindsided by news he never could have seen coming, thrusting him into a fight for more than just his own life. The two princes, who had exited the earlier competition as bitter adversaries, become propelled by the arrogance of Makedon toward an unexpected, personal challenge and re-match.
With Caenus and Makedon both having apparently received aid from the Gods, the fight for pride and love is intense; resulting in three people struggling for their lives, including the girl they are fighting for. It is Caenus' strength of love that serves him best, but also sends him to his darkest challenge yet.
