Before the chapter begins in earnest, we’re offered some back story on the conflict between Zeus and Prometheus:
The agreement between the Olympians and Titans to share dominion over mankind proved to be an uneasy alignment. The Titans remained on the surface while Zeus and his pantheon could but gaze upon mankind from the heights of the newly built Mount Olympus above.
For a time, there was peace, but tensions continued to rise, with Zeus suspecting Prometheus, the new lord of the Titans, of a plot against the Olympians. Whispers told of unspeakable atrocities committed against humans, forcing Zeus to seek out Prometheus and uncover the truth…
What follows is a direct confrontation between the ruler of Olympus and the remorseless Titan, with Zeus quickly realizing that he’s bit off more than he bargained for. Read the chapter yourself by clicking the cover below.
