Book Description:

Take what you know about mythology and throw it out the window….

Do you have any idea what Zeus, Odin, Pandora’s Box, Atlantis, Machu Picchu, Hera, Nike, Dragons, Vlad, Clones, and Vampires have in common? Athine does!

Athine is not your ordinary immortal born goddess. Learn of her mysterious origins, learn why Zeus hates her so much, find out where vampires come from, and learn what really happened to the dragons.

The Daughter of Ares Chronicles follows Athine as she uncovers the secrets of her destiny while interacting with key figures from many mythologies.

This printed version contains novellas one through four in one complete edition.

headshot2About the Author:

My name is Shannon McRoberts.  I am an independent artist, author, and poet.  I have been self-publishing books of all kinds since 2005.    My first book was a poetry book called Poetry for the Chronically Heart Broken and Depressed.  That book has since been replaced with a more robust collection called Erosion of the Heart.  I am currently working on bringing this book to paper format and expanded distribution through Smashwords.   

My first ever sci-fi book, The Secret of Genetic Corp X, has been compared to Blade Runner.  I am also currently working on having this book brought back to a paper edition.

My favorite series, The Daughter of Ares Chronicles, features Athine, an immortal born goddess that I created for the series.  In this series, I take mythologies of all kinds and turn them on their ears!

When I am not working or creating fantasy worlds for my characters to live in I enjoy being lost in MMORPGs, good books, and in the company of my friends and family.

I currently live in Kentucky with my wonderful husband and beautiful daughter.
