The High Court (The Sky Throne #2)
by Chris Ledbetter
Release Date: October 16, 2018
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.
“Hey, you,” Metis whispered. “There’s nothing I can say right now to make any of this better. Just know that I will always be here for you, to talk, to listen, to ride into harm’s way, to ... whatever.” She slid both of her palms to my cheeks. They seared into my anger-warmed skin. She pulled my face to hers. Our lips touched and she jumped back, licked her lips, and then dragged two fingers across them. “Ouch!”
“What?” I said. My gaze roamed over her ivory skin. “You just shocked me.” “Really? I felt nothing.” “Ohhh ...” she sassed. “You felt nothing, huh?”
I sucked my teeth. “Not nothing... you know what I meant.”
“Well, I felt plenty. Electrified. And not in a good way.” She chuckled and wagged her finger at me. “You need to control that ... whatever that is.”
I glanced downward. “Sorry.”
“Don’t get me wrong. I like positive energy as much as the next girl, but let’s try to turn the current off ... at least when I’m kissing you.”

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.
