MJ Pankey’s debut is coming October 2023!

When a madman seized the throne, the Gods on Olympus fell silent, and the island of Helinthia withered into decay…

Dargon and his comrades Kelric and Gadnor, and his sister Gonivein, make plans to rebel against their king, hoping to restore prosperity to their ravaged lands and earn the favor of the gods, but they soon discover that not all on Olympus want their island to recover, leading them on a journey full of danger, deception, and the wrath of both gods and men.

Fans of Madeline Miller’s Circe and Jennifer Saint’s Ariadne will delight in this original epic fantasy as they are transported to a vivid world of myth and majesty, danger and deception, to experience the wrath of both gods and men. Imbued with the essence of Homer’s original epic, the Iliad, MJ Pankey’s gods, goddesses, heroes, and heroines come alive in all of their flawed complexities to deliver a page-turning narrative that will keep readers on the edge of their seat ’til the very end.
