The High Court (The Sky Throne #2)
by Chris Ledbetter
Release Date: October 16, 2018
Publisher: Month9Books

High atop Mount Olympus, dawn breaks on a new academic term. Normalcy has returned to campus following a harrowing expedition into The Underworld to rescue kidnapped students by Zeus and his fellow Olympians. Now, as they prepare to testify in The High Court, Hyperion will be tried for the attack on Crete and death of Anytos. Kronos will stand trial for the murder of Mount Olympus Prep’s Headmaster Ouranos.

As the trials draw near, Mount Olympus Prep students and faculty are besieged repeatedly by a race of gargantuan stone and earth giants. Under heavy assault, the Olympians are forced to flee to the volcanic island of Limnos to regroup.
Meanwhile, a toxic poison Zeus has carried with him since a prior fight with a dragoness, creeps toward his brain.

In a race against time and beasts, Zeus and his friends must find a way to survive not only the toxin ravaging Zeus’ body but also the giants who grow stronger after every attack and somehow make it to the The High Court alive.


Why You’ll Love this book

I’ve pitched this story as The Client meets Orestes Trial (for those Grecophiles who know what that is), or The Client meets Hesiod’s Theogony (for those Classics scholars who are familiar). In general, THE HIGH COURT, is The Pelican Brief / The Client meets Greek mythology. I think readers will enjoy this fast-paced, myth-based legal thriller. Aside from the looming court cases that shroud the story, I think readers will love reconnecting with their old friends, the Olympians. Zeus is up to his antics again. And there’s a deepening of the relationship with Metis. But the general ensemble cast is one of the strengths of this series. I loved getting back together with these characters. I hope the readers will as well. Oh… I almost forgot. I introduce a new character to the mix of standard Olympians. Wait till you see who it is.


About the Author

Chris Ledbetter grew up in Durham, NC before moving to Charlottesville, VA in 11th grade. After high school, he attended Hampton University where he promptly “walked-on” to the best drum line in the conference without any prior percussion experience. He carried the bass drum for four years, something his back is not very happy about now.
After a change of heart and major, he enrolled in Old Dominion University and earned his degree in Business Administration. He’s worked in various managerial and marketing capacities throughout his life. He taught high school for six years in Culpeper, VA, and also coached football.
He has walked the streets of Los Angeles and New York City, waded in the waters of the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, and climbed Diamond Head crater on Hawaii and rang in the New Year in Tokyo, Japan. But he dreams of one day visiting Greece and Italy.
