It’s the day of the Council meeting. The gods and goddesses will decide whether Daphne Vane and her sister Agatha will be forced into unwanted marriages. Daphne’s been fighting this since the beginning of our story; Agatha is still unaware of All-Father’s plans for her. Together with their unlikely ally, Vesta Fox, the head of the gods’ police force, can Daphne and her mother Cynthia prevent the marriages? Oh, and there’s this little problem that Daphne has killed a demigod . . .
Watch the fireworks fly in “The Council meeting,” chapter 20 of To Ride the Lightning Bolt, my weekly serial about a young woman with a marriage problem. And an ancestry problem. And a killing problem. And she’s short. But she’s not going to be a delicate little creature, not today!
