About the author:
A Mississippi native, TOSK (Stephen H. King) was moved in high school entirely against his will from the small town of Corinth to a large city he ended up loving in southern California. After, a series of mostly unexplainable decisions led him through a strange sequence of events beginning at the United States Military Academy, where he double-majored in physics and electrical engineering, through a fairly short career as an Infantry officer and then an electronics technician, a product engineer, a carpenter's helper, and an elementary school janitor, to ultimately finding himself on the faculty of a small college in Anchorage, Alaska.
During those years, he learned that reading science fiction and fantasy allowed him to escape the strangeness into the more understandable worlds crafted by Isaac Asimov, Piers Anthony, Marion Zimmer Bradley, and many other great writers. As time went on he began to mold his own worlds.
Stephen now lives in Midlothian, Virginia, with his wife, daughter, and two white Chihuahuas that enjoy morphing from Therapuppies into miniature dragons at the sound of food being opened. Stephen is currently working on the next book in the Goddess series when he's not serving the students of a small college in Richmond, Virginia, as their Dean.
ASCENSION: Return of the Gods
Eternal life with her husband.
That's all Crystal wanted. Having survived the epic battle between her husband, the God of War, and his ex-wife, the Goddess of Love, Crystal set her sights on achieving the impossible.
She wanted-to be a goddess.
It's not impossible, though. Matt's ex-wife did it, after all. If it's been done once, Crystal can do it again, whatever it takes.
What it takes is assistance from some unlikely teachers-Thor, who breaks Crystal's body several times while rebuilding her as a barbarian queen. Hephaestus, who teaches her the magic of the forge and bestows upon her a priceless gift at the end of her time there. Apollo, her husband's bitterest rival. Gaia, the mother goddess, who serves as Crystal's guide while treating Crystal's quest as a grand source of amusement.
The fast-paced action ends with another battle, but this time it's one that Crystal must win on her own.
