Celestial Affairs, Book 1
Falian thinks he’s insignificant. He’s about to discover a destiny that will affect the world. He’s about to find a love that will change it.
When Falian refuses to accept a job he has been ordered to take on, one that would involve hurting people, he embarks on a momentous journey to change his life. To his shock, Quithlade the Storm God and Bymbles, a celestial imp, decide to join him.
Falian and Quithlade grow closer, but the Storm God had a previous relationship that will have a profound effect on the tentative feelings Falian is starting to have. Quithlade is irresistible, though, with a clearly undeserved reputation for untrustworthy behaviour that makes no sense. He is kind and affectionate, with extraordinary powers including the ability to shape-shift into various different creatures.
Falian thought he knew everything about the mortal world, but he’s about to discover supernatural creatures he never knew existed and face worse danger than he thought possible.
Deities and mortals aren’t supposed to mix; they certainly aren’t meant to fall in love. Find out if Falian can get a happy ending in the first book in an epic fantasy series with an entire pantheon of deities who just can’t seem to stop getting into trouble.
Falian dared another glance at the deity, who smiled at him, looking far too slight and human for everything that was said about him. Falian had actually always liked Quithlade, who had sounded like a bit of a misfit in the overworld, but that was in an ‘I will definitely never meet any deity let alone this one’ kind of way. For Falian to consider, in the privacy of his own mind, that Quithlade might be the kind of deity who could understand his problems was entirely different from having him as a companion. Falian remembered with a start that he had made an offhand prayer to Quithlade to keep his journey safe from storms when he left his home settlement: was that why the Storm God was here? Could it actually have taken so little to get him to help Falian? It seemed improbable, but he could think of no other reason.
The imp beside him stumbled on a root and Falian put a hand under his elbow to steady him, gaining a thank you. This was someone else who looked nothing like Falian would have imagined – a celestial being other than a deity, which Falian hadn’t known was possible, and someone who had once been a living imp, which species he hadn’t thought was real. He then thought about Bymbles’ extraordinary arrival and asked, “Were you somewhere in the overworld too, Master Imp? How did you get here?”
“You can just call me Bymbles. We don’t tend to use formal names much.”
