The one thing Syrus Alcot, the God of Death Osiris in the Egyptian Pantheon, wants in all the worlds is the woman he loved and lost returned to him. When he gave up his powers, and freedom for a life of service, he was promised her return. That was over 1,000 years ago. A member of a team of dark gods charged with keeping humanity safe, he leads a loveless existence in New York City, searching for the one thing that could bring his wife back to him: a lapis scarab that was lost to him ages before.
Gwen Stapleton, a mild mannered librarian, is unaware that she holds the key to not only Syrus' happiness, but her own. Seemingly stuck in a hopeless relationship with a man she doesn't love, she has no idea that a chance meeting in Alphabet City will start a landslide to her heart's content. Because Gwen is the keeper of the scarab, and is everything Syrus has ever wanted and he's not the only one.
An ancient evil is waking, and its servants will stop at nothing to see it seize its rightful place as the new pantheon of earth. And in order for Syrus and his team to save the world, Gwen is going to have to accept him, and show that love does make all the difference.
