After the War of the Titans, King Zeus forced his brother Hades to rule the Underworld. Hades first recreated the Underworld to his liking, then he created Macaria, Goddess of Blessed Death.

Since her creation, Macaria mercifully carried out her father's bidding, guiding the blessed ones through the passage of souls into the Underworld to the Islands of the Blessed. For millenniums, she listened to the blessed souls of the passing, hearing their wishes, regrets, accomplishments, and great loves.

Before the day Hades brought home Persephone, she always wondered what this love was about, but never thought of the possibility there would be a One for her.

...Until one extraordinary blessed soul asked her about her One.

She knew what the love of a One could do to someone for all of eternity, but was there really a One for her?

With the blessing of Hades, Macaria has six months to journey and find her One. After the six months are over, Macaria must continue her duties as Goddess of Blessed Death for the rest of eternity, with or without a One.


Originally titled "Finding the One."

Loosely based on Greek mythology.
