So now he fought, along with his brothers, never really feeling, existing, or loving at all. He fights, hoping one day his cruel life would come to its pathetic conclusion.
But Artemis...she had her ways. She had her reasons. Sometimes fate gave you second chances.

I suggest reading The Tale of Sloth before reading this book. This book will make less sense if you haven’t read the first.
“I did not call upon you.” He turned to walk away, and she stepped forward.
“I have come to give you a message.”
“Tell me,” he responded. He didn’t care who had to tell him what. It was annoying to him. He just wanted to go into his room and drink.
She paled. “I am not sure you would like your brothers to hear what I have to say.”
“It doesn’t matter. Speak.”
The house must have heard the commotion because those who had left returned, watching the scene. She faltered under their gazes. “I–” she stopped, unsure of herself. “Your beloved, Camila, she’s happy.”
Zanthus seethed from her name. “Do not speak of her. You have no right.”
“No,” she agreed. “Artemis–”
Zanthus barked out a burst of sardonic laughter. “Artemis hasn’t appeared on Earth in centuries.”
As Zanthus turned to leave again, she felt her time to tell him fading, so she rushed out what was told to her. “Artemis told me that you have another beloved!” She took a breath as the room filled with something unrecognizable to her. She continued on, forcing herself not to be afraid. “Artemis cannot bring back your Camila, but she can grant you a second mate–”
“I do not want a second beloved. Tell Artemis she shouldn’t have taken away my Camila if she wanted favors.”
With anger, he left the living room, venturing somewhere where she wouldn’t follow. She walked to Demedicus who was unusually quiet. From inside her gown, she took out a small envelope and handed it to him. “Inside is her name and photo. You must understand, this beloved is designed to satisfy the man Zanthus is today. This woman was birthed the beloved of him. Zanthus needs her help, but she needs his also. Please, try to get him to understand because if he does not, neither of them will survive.”
