This novel is intended for ages 12-16. It follows the adventures of the child goddess Sofia, who's world is turned upside down when she is attacked by a giant eagle. Blood - not the ichor of the immortals - seeps out of her wounds. How can this be? And why was she attacked? These are the questions she and her close friends Thalia, youngest of the Muses, a blind centaur named Erieros, and the ghost of the greek warrior Achilles, must answer. If they do not succeed a terrible fate awaits.
