For a thousand years, the trapped, immortal Teacher has carefully planned escape. Everything now depends on one naive young man . . .
Book one: Prince Temmin Antremont has been sheltered from assassins and women for eighteen years. Now at his father’s court, forces he can neither control nor understand pull at him from all sides. But none pull harder than the Lovers, the twin gods of love and sex. King Harsin believes an old prophecy: if Temmin joins the Lovers’ Temple the monarchy will end.
The gods are irresistible, and the King is implacable. With Teacher’s help, Temmin must decide which is more dangerous—defying his father or defying the gods. But does Teacher intend to continue the Antremonts’ rule, or end it?
Book two: Estranged from his father, Prince Temmin Antremont struggles within the Lovers’ Temple for peace of mind. A murder rips away his greatest support. His forbidden love of Allis Obby, the human host of a goddess, may get them both killed. And all the while, enemies inside and outside the kingdom are plotting against the monarchy, and the gods prove once again they are no one’s friends.
