Rhea is out for blood.
By day, she practices the craft of assassination under the iron grasp of the Mistress, the leader of the Rozi, an elite and secret group of trained female assassins. By night, she plots the ways she can murder her godly father.
The father who gave her her golden blood, golden eyes, and golden hair. The three things that could get her killed.
But when Rhea meets Milos, an assignment she was sent to kill, she realizes that even the best laid plans of men and demigods can go astray...
This is a story about revenge.
But this is also a story about a girl.
I wrote this story in the Notes app on my phone in a painfully random and sporadic way. I'd had the idea for this story since last summer, before I went away to college, but I put pen to paper (or finger to phone, I should say) for the preview in December 2018.
I had experienced one of the worst heartbreaks in my life (I was almost considering writing another letter in Yours Truly, J ). I was hurt, angry, tired, and sad.
So I put those feelings to paper. And thus Rhea was born.
She is the femme fatale I could never be. She is confidence, anger, sorrow, hurt. But most importantly, she is able to turn these emotions into actions. She has the courage and sheer ability to wreck havoc and revenge on those who cause her pain.
But by June, Rhea was a living, breathing character of her own. Her story unfolded almost painlessly (keyword almost), and I've come to love and admire her.
This is her story. It's not quite finished yet, but I'm excited to keep working on it as I share with y'all.
