She couldn't breathe, there wasn't enough air. There was no air on Mars, she was breathing poison! But it was simply fear. After the long journey that never ended, here was the end. Alfie has escaped to Mars with Odinstoy and her young son, Apollo, where Odinstoy will join the Martian Temple of Odin as their God-speaker. Alfie hopes their new life on Mars will enable her to claw back the status and respect she had before she became a bonder - and is frustrated by Odinstoy's disdain for the fame hew new role brings. But Alfie's craving for attention leads her to fall under the spell of a follower of the rival temple of Zeus. Soon she is confiding all her fears, dreams and secrets to him - and in doing so placing all three of them in terrible danger...
