The daughters of a celestial demigod and a human woman, Makeda and Abby were raised by their magical father. Today, Makeda has decided it's high time to move out and make her own life.
In Cheerful Rest, Makeda finds exactly what she's been looking for: an opportunity to live apart from Abby. But when her father goes missing, Makeda will have to discover her own talent if she's to have a hope of saving him....
