In the present Hermes visits his brother Darius who remains without a body as ruled by Zeus. He tells him that a St. Louis sculptor is building a statue of Darius from a photo taken from the works of Dr. Mickail, who pieced together the shattered stature sans a penis. Darius realizes this is his chance to regain a body, which he does when Alexandra de Marco unveiled her statue if him. As he tries to reward her with his body that the uptight artist rejects, they fall in love, but he is a child of the Greek Gods and she is a mortal making anything permanent impossible or is it?

Readers will enjoy this romantic fantasy starring a delightful female protagonist and a somewhat haughty hunk. Though the audience will wonder what it will take for Darius to learn a lesson as he failed to get the message from being castrated and a three millennium bodiless debacle.
