Author(s): Jack Lasenby
Thrown hard on the bottom boards, I stared up at distorted mouths, faces so red I could feel their heat. They stank of rage and of something else; several frothed at the mouth; their howls drowned the clatter and shriek of gulls swerving and tilting above the mast … Banishment is the cruellest punishment, and one of the people driving out Selene is the person she loves. Calling the Gods is for older readers.
