Hecate, Fenrir, and Oberon will be the conduits of power so the human vessels can forever be changed Then they will have their own personal armies of fighters and worshipers to help restore the god powers they are slowly losing. Once the three distinct hybrid proteges are converted, it is up to them to give the gift to other humans to build up their species.
With war on the horizon and not much time before the first battle, the Blood of the Ancient Gods must succeed in producing the ultimate supernatural killers with the ability to properly lead their races. And all before Thanatos and his daughter Psyche figure out what the other gods are planning.

Thanatos, the God of Death, stood in Tartarus and slowly took it all in. He hated this fucking place. Why was he regulated to live in the depths of hell where no other gods wanted to venture? He should be in Domus with everyone else. Thanatos turned at the barely heard footsteps of Janus, the God of the Future. What did he want now?
“Thanatos, we need to speak immediately,” Janus said.
“What have you seen that can’t wait until I’m in a better mood?” Thanatos asked.
“You’re never in a better mood and this is important. We cannot afford to delay any further. Death is coming for us all.”
“Always with the dramatics. Get on with it then.”
“Hecate, Fenrir, and Oberon have decided something that’s caused the future to shift in their favor. If they succeed in their plans, it could mean the end for us and a new beginning for them.”
“Death is an everyday occurrence. I’m not worried about my end…you on the other hand.”
Thanatos watched as Janus just shook his head back and forth franticly.
“NO. This is different. They are trying to amass armies strong enough to kill even you.”
“I’ve seen it.”
Thanatos started to pace. What Janus suggested was ridiculous. He was the God of Death. He could never be killed or weakened. Nothing in the world existed that could control or contain him. Every death made him stronger and there wasn’t a day that went by when someone wasn’t praying for death to claim them.
“What can we do to counter this future? How can we change it back to benefit us?”
“The dead? What about them?”
“We must have them rise.”
Thanatos closed his eyes and prayed for patience. Sometimes Janus made no fucking sense. Zombies? Really? That was their best option. There had to be something else…something better. He needed a second option on this before he agreed to hear anything else Janus had to say.
“I’m going for a walk. We will discuss this rising of the dead later.”
Thanatos left before Janus could even get a word out. He’d heard enough for the moment. Walking deeper into Tartarus, into the shadows he searched for his father. He found him barely corporal thirty minutes later and waited to be addressed.
