To Honor Anubis and Osiris
Maehb and Jax are sorting out a mess - while the competition is ongoing, some of the other gods are taking advantage of setting some petty squabbles and nastiness. The problem is, they're both stepping into arguments that have nothing to do with the errands they're on. And while the world is already on the brink, and everything is going in directions that make no sense, it's hard to know what choices are the right ones. And, it turns out, Mae isn't as far from her own time, or her own home as she thought, which makes it all the harder when part of what is going on involves several of her old sect. But she's got a dashing companion - Jax is one of the younger Reapers - one she has a nagging feeling she might actually know. And he's kind, bright and clever, so it's not as hard as it could be, right?Depends what you define as hard - learning magic, using it safely and stopping Jax from claiming people he finds interesting versus those that would actually work better for his dieties gives her a whole new idea of why she wasn't expecting this - at all. And why she's pretty sure that if she's not doing the things that she should, that there's more at stake than the end of the world, though, that's quite a big issue in all itself. With all this going on though, and Jax's behaviour becomes more erratic, she realises that being an Arbiter is just as much about saving the Reapers, as saving the world.The Second book of All my Freinds are Reapers centres around Anubis and Osiris, and Jax, a reaper with a past that he's running from, and a life he traded for a long time ago, and one he's not willing to trade back.
