Eat, win, get paid, go home. 

That was the plan. 

I wasn’t looking for guys. 

Okay that’s a lie, it’s been a long six months, but I didn’t expect Silas, Rhett, and Amos to turn up.
I don’t believe that stuff just happens. 

I didn’t believe in genies, either, until the three of them started disappearing and reappearing at will. 

The truth is I wouldn't be here without them. But sometimes you don’t always appreciate what you have while it’s right in front of you with all that bronze skin and hard abs. There’s something uniquely hot about a guy dressed as a Middle Eastern assassin defending you against an Egyptian God. I have three. 

Silas has sworn to protect me. Amos, too. 
Rhett... well he can please his miserable self. But they all think I’m someone important. Someone impossible.
They want to stay close. 

I can see a number of benefits to having them around but do I really want three genies following my every move?

 

 

Being a Goddess isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

I never said I was perfect. Far from it. And when I sent them away it proved it.

Now my mistakes have caught up with me and I’m wishing I’d done things differently.

Rhett, Amos, and Silas are doing everything they can to uncover the mysteries surrounding our attraction and my role in all of this, but it takes time.

 

Time we don’t have with a god hunting me down.

Faced with the prospect of losing everyone I love, it’s time for me to step up.

I hold the power to balance the universe.

I just hope I can work out how to access it before we’re found and destroyed.

 

Despite the best efforts of my djinn to keep me hidden, Set found me.

 

I sent him home with a knife in his face.

 

Does he think he can break into my home, kill my best friend, and get away with it?

Maybe the old me would have let that slide, but I’m not her any more.

I’m not who he thinks I am, either.

I’m something different.

With Amos, Rhett, and Silas at my side, I’m going to Duat.

I’m taking back what’s mine.

I’ll make him pay for every life he’s taken. Even if that means razing his world to the ground.

But let’s hope it doesn’t come to that.
