Length: 82,000 words approx.
Cover Design: Natasha Snow

Gifted power over life and death, Lysandros has spent millennia in the underworld, listless and alone. The youngest child of Hades and Persephone, he’s been sheltered from the threats in the world above.

Theo Ward hasn’t been so lucky. After watching his mother wither away, he’d do almost anything to have her back. When a messenger appears at the Banneker College of Magic and offers the young professor a chance to save her, Theo can’t pass it up, even if it means going straight into the underworld and dragging her home. But Theo gets more than he bargained for when he crosses paths with the prince of Hades.

Set against the king of Olympus, they must shed their past burdens and learn to trust in each other, so they can face down a storm that threatens to wipe the nation’s capital off the map.

Prince of Death by Sam Burns
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Theo is a teacher of magic, although not a really gifted one. His mother recently died and when a stranger gave him a book that might lead him to his mother he travel down a path that will change everything.

Lysandros is the son of Greek Gods. When he comes across Theo he is very taken with him. Thus changing the course of his (very) long life too. Their being together will change the course of humanity.

After meeting several of Lisandro’s family, including an interesting encounter with Zeus, Theo isn’t really impressed. An entire pantheon of gods, being vain, selfish, apathetic, creating problems, and acting like the humans they disdain. Not very godlike at all but still dangerous.

I liked this take on the Greek myths. The main characters were interesting and the storyline was entertaining. Looking forward to the next book.

About The Authors


Sam Burns wrote her first fantasy epic with her best friend when she was ten. Like almost any epic fiction written by a ten year old, it was awful. She likes to think she’s improved since then, if only because she has better handwriting now.
If she’s not writing, she’s almost certainly either reading or lost down a Wikipedia rabbit hole while pretending to research for a novel.



W.M. Fawkes is an author of LGBTQ+ urban fantasy and paranormal romance. With coauthor Sam Burns, she writes feisty Greek gods, men, and monsters in the Lords of the Underworld series. She lives with her partner in a house owned by three halloween-hued felines that dabble regularly in shadow walking.
