The goddess of love is dying. Plagued by the only illness that can kill a god, Lavinia's only hope lies with the Asesino, the Assassin of the Fates. Gage Rebeau is a half god- half wolf, and he is trying his best to stay away from Lavinia. His wolf enjoys the smell of the raven-haired goddess far too much for his liking. When Lavinia's sister calls for his help, Gage has no choice but to try to save Vinnie's life. Across the Mythical Kingdoms their journey takes them to lands where secrets are better left buried. Can Gage and Vinnie defeat Desolation and accept their attraction, or will the darkness of Desolation carry them away?
