"What do you think; I'm keeping a god in my attic and letting him leech off my energy in exchange for some companionship? That's... That's just crazy!" "With this family's track-record with the gods, I'm just saying that it's not unlikely." (Sequel to The Boy and the Animal) All his life, Artemis LaBane wanted the fairytale love like his parents had. He thought he had it, until his fiancé left him for a priestess of sex. His life became an empty cycle of working and sleeping, haunted by the hollowness where love was. That was when Nocturnes dropped onto his lap. The god of darkness has offered him a bargain: Experience a love like no other, through invisible lines, in exchange for slowly devouring him.
