Rebekah: Good morning, Hermes. How are you today?
Hermes: Awesome? And you?
Rebekah: Pretty good. Are you ready to start this interview?
Hermes: I live to be interviewed.
Rebekah: *mumbles* You do like to talk.
Hermes: What was that?
Rebekah: Nothing. Okay, first question: what’s the first thing you did when I left you at the end of Mercury Rising?
Hermes: I went back to Greece to check on Pan.
Rebekah: Were you secretly hoping you-know-who would be there?
Hermes: Can I plead the fifth? Because I think I am going to plead the fifth…
Rebekah. Haha, sure. Is Apollo giving you any trouble?
Hermes: Strangely, I haven’t seen much of him since. Which worries me more. It means he is up to something. Rumor has it he has been hanging around a certain god that enjoys wine, and that bodes ill for everyone.
Rebekah: What’s next for you?
Hermes: Don’t you know?
Rebekah: You’re being strangely hesitant in this interview.
Hermes: Because you know already!
Hermes: FINE! I need to check in on Melancton, but I am not sure he will be happy to see me.
Rebekah: Is anyone happy to see you?
Hermes: Your readers.
Nymphs in peril, obsessive gods, females who literally cannot admit when they’re wrong, and unruly satyrs. Just another typical day for Hermes.
When Zeus refuses to demand Apollo release Daphne from captivity in Olympus, the only option left is for Hermes to free the nymph himself. A simple task for a god with his skillset, but risking the wrath of Apollo never went well for anyone.
However, imprisoned nymphs aren’t distraction enough when a former flame crashes back into Hermes’ life. It’s been a long time since he laid eyes on Hybris, and the timing couldn’t be worse. As the goddess of hubris, she has many quirks—such as being incapable of apologizing. And no matter how much she tries to assure him she can be trusted, the memory of her betrayal remains.
As they formulate a plan to rescue Daphne, Hermes soon suspects no threat is greater than the tribulations of the heart.
