Before the age of gods and men, the most ancient of the immortals, Nyx, pulled herself into creation. Her power encapsulated the night and all its secrets — where nothing goes unseen. Once respected for the balance and duality that she brought to the world, and the haven she created in Tartarus, the rise of the gods has brought the Goddess of Night’s influence into question.
Beside her, Erebus, the God of Darkness, grows restless. The primordial God has spent thousands of years amplifying Nyx and the powers of the night, acting as the final knell to her command. He has watched their children — Thanatos, Hypnos, and Chiron — usher the souls of mankind through life and threatens to blanket the world in darkness when his family’s reputations begin to tarnish.
Power hungry, a young Zeus lurks in the daylight, creating a cult of perception. He hatches a plan to take the throne from his father, Kronos, and bring down anyone who has the strength to defy him… primordials included. As Nyx and Erebus are divided on different sides of the struggle, their relationship is tested as well as the balance of night and day itself.Molly Tullis’s “Consort of Darkness”, the first in the Asphodel Series, takes a look at the ancient world of Greece with a new kind of myth — putting the spotlight back on the powerful women that the world hopes we would forget, and what it means when those women fall in love. “Consort of Darkness” is a mythological historical fiction set in the ancient world; it contains graphic violence, swearing, and sex scenes.
