BVC Announces By Jove by Marissa Doyle

By Jove by Marissa Doyle

After three soul-destroying years of teaching unenthusiastic middle-schoolers, Theodora Fairchild is thrilled to be a student again, pursuing her doctorate in Latin. She’s sure John Winthrop University will be the intellectual home she’s always longed for, the place where she’ll finally fit in.

After she unwittingly betrays Grant to his oldest foe, she’s determined to rescue him–and herself–before it’s too late.

Because even gods can die–or wish they were dead. Continue reading

Until Cloud is twelve years old, she is a neglected bear cub wandering the town ruled by King Rumble. Cloud’s unexpected transformation into a human girl, with no memory of what came before, enrages Rumble, and she is forced to flee from his malevolent wizard.
