Desponia: Goddess of Mystery - Book coverWhen a young goddess takes her place in an old world full of secrets and deceit, there's bound to be some friction, especially in she is the Goddess of Mystery.

After her powers reveal a particularly damning secret, the wrath of the God of War, bombards her life and things will never be the same. She must survive his continual attacks while discovering hidden truths about her own life and powers. But secrets are secrets for a reason, or so that's what she's been told.

Immortal or not, Desponia and those she cares most about are in danger. Can the power she fears help her save them all or will it prove to be the greater danger after all.


Author's Notes

This is a Greek mythology story following Desponia, a little known goddess, that has kind of been lost to history. She is the daughter of Poseidon and Demeter, conceived in rape along with her brother the talking horse Arion.

Of course my story takes liberties, but I still to this basic idea. A goddess, product of a rape, raised in a temple, associated with Hecate ( A titan of magic and sorcery). Who would this young woman be? How would she feel? How would her relationship with her mother be? And I just let the story evolve from there.

About L. M. Goodman

US United States

I am from New Orleans, but I'm a bit of an introvert (A waste of a party city, I know). I enjoy writing, especially putting my characters in difficult or ridiculous situations. I love Supernatural, and the BBC Sherlock (still one fandom shy of the majesty of being a Superwholocker). I want to write the stories people want to read, but in a way that they never thought of. It excited me...
