Not all heroes wear capes . . . In fact, some prefer cat hair-covered leggings and a lab coat. Meet Ryan Bell, the painfully single twenty-eight-year-old botanist credited with creating miraculous air-purifying flowers capable of saving mankind from itself. There's only one problem: Only Ryan can grow them.
When Ryan is contacted by a mysterious Greek assembly claiming to have replicated her game-changing scientific feat, she drops everything to meet them. Upon arriving at their isolated utopia, Ryan quickly realizes her hosts are more myth than scientists. They attribute their green thumbs not to years of botany study, but rather to the godly blood of being Descendants of the Olympians. And there are some major Greek hunks among the crew.
While Ryan is adamant that her famous flowers were developed by years of research and hard work, the Descendants have a much more viable explanation for her fantastical botanic talents: She is the missing Descendant of Artemis. Moreover, she is the one missing piece in their plan to rescue Zeus and the rest of the exiled Olympians.
Talk about one epic identity crisis. Magical demigod or not, the fate of civilization—both mortal and godly—now rests on Ryan's shoulders.
A UW-Madison school of journalism graduate, Metra Farrari landed her dream job right out of college to become a member of the production team for the final three seasons of The Oprah Winfrey Show. Chicago proved to be fruitful; Metra picked up a husband, a big-boned (fat) cat, and lifelong friends, but the draw of family called her home to Minnesota. A self-proclaimed nap-time novelist, Metra managed to write her debut novel to the soundtrack of the everyday chaos that comes with raising three small children. When not squirreled away in her writing nook, Metra can be found unapologetically consuming reality shows, training for a half marathon to the beat of suspenseful audiobooks, and negotiating with her husband for another cat. Metra resides in Minneapolis with her family.
"In All the Blues Come Through, Farrari takes us on a fabulous romp through a modernized version of Greek mythology. Readers will love the way this reluctant heroine's journey mixes humor and fun with deeper themes of self-discovery, empowerment, and impending ecological disasters." - Kerry Anne King, bestselling author of Whisper Me This
