The monsters know her as Beautiful Death.
Scientists warned that a pandemic outbreak could cripple our world. However, they never expected a mutating alien virus to obliterate our entire civilization. In the resulting chaos, New Olympia rose as a vaccinated haven of modern technology.
As First Marshal of Athens, Isabella Thanatos has killed hundreds of monsters spawned by the virus. Mysteriously infected in a city where no one gets sick, she’s now turning into a monster worse than any she ever terminated. Fleeing Athens in the final stages of mutation, Isabella seeks help from the worst monster she knows, the hated alien, Hades.
In the Underworld of contaminants and surviving aliens locked out of New Olympia, Hades saved as many people as possible from the viral chaos. Now with Isabella’s emerging power, he can fire the ship’s engines and return to his home planet. To overthrow the powerful ruler who exiled him to death and madness, who better to have on his side than Beautiful Death? If he can convince her to accept life with him as a monster.
Monsters beware–Death comes to the Underworld.
