Birth of Venus

For centuries, the Greek gods of myth and legend have been living amongst humanity. After years of fighting and scrambling for power, Zenus was able to unite his kin in peave… or so he thought.

As she sets out to recruit other gods and goddesses to join her, she’ll find that – while some share her thirst for dominance – others stand firmly against her. A war is brewing between the gods, and only the strongest will survive.
