Publisher's Summary

Nymphs in peril, obsessive gods, females who literally cannot admit when they're wrong, and unruly satyrs. Just another typical day for Hermes. 

When Zeus refuses to demand Apollo release Daphne from captivity in Olympus, the only option left is for Hermes to free the nymph himself. A simple task for a god with his skillset, but risking the wrath of Apollo never went well for anyone. 

However, imprisoned nymphs aren't distraction enough when a former flame crashes back into Hermes' life. It's been a long time since he laid eyes on Hybris, and the timing couldn't be worse. As the goddess of hubris, she has many quirks - such as being incapable of apologizing. And no matter how much she tries to assure him she can be trusted, the memory of her betrayal remains. 

As they formulate a plan to rescue Daphne, Hermes soon suspects no threat is greater than the tribulations of the heart.

Don't miss the first part of The Adventures of Hermes, a companion series to The Cursed Satyroi.

Different!

Mercury Rising by Rebekah Lewis and narrated by Ray Lesniewski is the first of The Adventures of Hermes series.
This was both a new author and new narrator for me.
I enjoyed it to the extent that I like stories about the Greek Gods, especially when brought into modern times.
Would I listen to this book again? probably not, but this is my opinion. Definitely worth the first listen through.
Would I recommend this book to others? yes if they are like me and like stories of Greek Gods.

Great Story!!

I found this story to be quite interesting—especially since I enjoy stories featuring mythical gods and goddesses. Hermes is featured in this story and as you listen along, you’ll be captivated by Hermes’ rescue operation and the angst presented by his righteous distrust of Hybris. I found myself rooting for them both as they undertake this dangerous rescue mission. I definitely will be continuing on with this series and can't wait to listen to the next book!! I enjoyed listening to the narrator as he brought this story to life.

Wonderful Novella

Mercury Rising is absolutely amazing book mixed with fantasy and mythology. The book is well written and narrated. The flow of the storyline goes at a good pace. I received this review copy at my request. I am voluntarily leaving my honest review here.

The writing on this is brilliant

This audiobook is absolutely fabulous. I adore Hermes. He is mischievous and makes his own rules--or rather finds an ingenious work around to the rules imposed on him. This book is brilliant and I can't wait to listen the next part of his story.

The narrator does a good job of bringing Hermes to life. Definitely give this audiobook a try. You might just love it as much as I did.
