Four thousand years of philandering, but there is that cute little naiad he can not forget. His neo-Olympian cult will not stop howling at the moon. And Hera is on a real rampage this time. Is Zeus out of his league? Let the Games begin!
Sometimes a fools errand is the only chance you get. With nothing left to lose, a bereaved fry-cook, a lovelorn hermit, a clueless delivery-boy, and a determined water nymph take on the gods. It is a surprisingly fair fight.
