Immortality, ancient Egypt, gods and demons, a legendary island civilization, the last genuine princess, a mysterious woman in a tomb and a pint-sized elephant are a few pieces of the madness that is Maidservant’s life.
Five hundred years before her adventure begins, the greatest seer who ever lived serves a refuted god named Kalli and predicts they will lose the fight to stop demon overlords ruling mankind. Based on the seer’s visions, Kalli develops a daring plan spanning one thousand years to change the world’s ominous fate---if it works. The most crucial part depends on the actions and choices of a girl the seer views only in mists and shadows so far into the future.
A uniquely brilliant but mentally disturbed young girl wakes up in the kitchen cupboard of an Egyptian villa belonging to a wealthy merchant. She has vivid memories of another life and family, but the household servants insist she was born into slavery and her name and job are the same---Maidservant. When she argues, they summon brutal healers to drive the delusional fantasies out of her. She becomes personal maid to her master’s daughter and he sends them to steal ancient documents from Pharaoh’s Library that will give anyone who can decipher them the power to rule the world, but no one expects the consequences this action causes.
Then her master discovers the last of Kalli’s followers are on a mysterious island and suspects they may have a trove of the old magic hidden there. He has himself appointed Ambassador and sets out with his daughter and Maidservant to search before leading an attack to kill or subjugate everyone on the island.
Maidservant encounters an enshrouded woman in a tomb who insists Maidservant is the person foretold to complete Kalli’s plan. She meets a mysterious young man named Envoy, who rumors claim is impossibly old and powerful, and their lives become intertwined. A group of amazing young women destined to be gods are close friends. By the time battle commences, both sides depend on her for victory, but she can serve only one side and struggles to choose.
Another five hundred years go by. Immortal gods rule a hopeless world in constant turmoil. Kalli’s plan to create an alternate history continues moving inexorably to climax.

From the Inside Flap:
MAIDSERVANT THE GOD EXCERPT:
Grunting insistently, a monstrous female creature shook me awake by the shoulders. I stared, astounded and horrified. She obviously wanted me to do something, but I could do nothing except recoil from her ugliness and putrid breath. Another gruesome creature peered over her shoulder then splashed a bucket of gross, oily liquid in my face. Later, I would learn it was what now passed for water. They left me on the cold earthen floor, naked and shivering.
I can't describe those moments properly. The chamber was a horror of crushed, broken skeletons strewn all around, and I knew they had to be the remains of the other sleepers. Desperately, I searched for something to indicate Cythe's fate, in spite of knowing how stupid and impossible it was. I wanted to scream and pinch myself out of the nightmare, but I could not move.
The setting for Maidservant the God is ancient Egypt and an island that many today claim to be the location of mythical Atlantis. It is an action adventure propelled by magic, mythology and relationships that devolve into betrayals and chaos designed by a refuted god named Kalli centuries before Maidservant was born.
Before her friends become legendary gods and heroes remembered in myths and legends created by demons to enslave mankind, they were young women in their formative teen years with no inkling of the dark fates awaiting them in the future.
Two young Priests of the Temple of Light nicknamed Athy and Arty stand out for their amazing athletic abilities and intellectual brilliance. Eventually, the world will herald and worship them as the gods Athene and Artemis, but they are actually in service to powerful demons.
Found near death floating on debris far out to sea, young Cytheria is breathtakingly lovely, intelligent and the sweetest, most unpretentious student at the Temple. Her fate is especially cruel as she evolves into Aphrodite, so devastatingly beautiful that she inspires armies into wars and self-sacrifice of people who cannot live without possessing her, but she doesn't notice, caring only for herself.
In the myths and legends of gods and demons, Princess Ariadne's life after she helps the hero Theseus escape the Minotaur labyrinth created by her father, Minos, King of Crete, has been widely speculated, but no one really knows what happened to her. Read the unknown story of one of mankind's greatest unsung heroes.
At the center of it all, the young Egyptian slave...Maidservant.
