Artemis's Hunt by Lia Davis

(Sons of War #2.5)

By Lia Davis

Artemis, goddess of the hunt, has lived with heartache for the last fifteen hundred years, believing her only love is dead. That’s what her father—Zeus, king of the gods—told her. After recent events brought the truth to light, Artemis must gather the courage to face her lost love again.

Evangelos, former god of messengers, was content living in the mortal world until he discovered he has a daughter and her mother is Artemis. When the goddess shows up at his place of employment with tales of renewing his god status, he’s skeptical. Zeus wouldn’t reverse the curse out of the goodness of his heart. There is always a catch. The god king wants something in return.

When Artemis explains she has to hunt down her stepmother, Hera, in order to get Evan back into Zeus’s good graces, Evan demands to accompany her. However, the journey turns out to be a test that could bring them closer together or tear them apart forever.

Excerpt

Artemis sat on a stone bench in the rose gardens outside the dragons’ home—her daughter’s 

new home with her mate, Tyson. Tears blurred her vision and her nose tingled, fueling her anger at 

herself for daring to believe for even an instant that things could be as they once were. Evan didn’t 

want her, not after so much time had passed. She was going on Zeus’s mission, regardless— deliver his 

message then return home, alone.

She sensed her daughter before she entered the small courtyard. “I saw Evangelos.”

“I know. He called.”

“He didn’t want me there.” Although she tried to contain the storm of emotions within, some 

of her misery leaked out in her tone, frustrating her further. It was bad enough that she ached from 

a rejection she should have foreseen. She should have better control than to let others, even her 

daughter, know of her weakness, and finding she didn’t was humbling.

Ashlynn appeared in front of her as she knelt down and took her hands. “That is not true. He’s 

hurting, like you. Men handle feelings different than we do.”

After a few moments, Artemis squared her shoulders. “I have to find Hera.”

“What? Why?”

She met her daughter’s concerned stare. “I have to deliver a message to her for Zeus. In 

exchange, Evangelos gets reinstated as a god.”

Ashlynn stood, folded her arms, and narrowed her eyes. “If you live through it. Do you even 

know where she is?”

“No, but I must find her.”

“Not alone, you aren’t.” The masculine voice behind her attracted her attention and Artemis 

jumped to her feet and whirled around to glare at Evangelos, standing a few feet away. Annoyance 

made her blood run cold. “You have no right to tell me what to do.”

He stepped forward, but Artemis held her ground. “Why do you get to choose how I get my 

godhood back? How do you know I even want it back?”

Artemis drew back, shocked. How could he not want to return home? Return to her? Pain 

gripped her heart like a vise, making it difficult to grasp what he tried to tell her. Had he moved on? A 

lump lodged in her throat.

After a moment, she turned away. “I see.”

His thick, strong arms encircled her, squeezing her tight against him. “Please don’t teleport away 

from this argument.”

The growl in his voice mixed with his familiar cedar scent was her undoing. It’d been too long 

since she’d been held by him. Turning toward him, she cupped his face. “I’ve spent the last millennia and 

a half believing you were dead, never seeing your smile, never hearing your voice. Now that I’ve found 

you, it would be unbearable for me to let you go again.”

He stared at her for a brief moment before crushing his lips to hers. Sliding her hands to his 

nape, she pressed her body to his and opened when he swiped his tongue along the seam of her lips. 

Tingles skittered over his skin, intensifying her mounting desire.

Artemis broke the kiss. She released a sigh as she rested her head against his chest. “I need to 

find Hera.”
