Summary: The day before his coming-of-age ceremony, Eirik’s fathers tell him a bedtime story about of the son of the god of Love and the son of the god of Envy—one beloved by all, who knows no pain; the other who lives in his shadow and feels nothing but.

Still fuming from a fight with a friend, Eirik is not in the mood for stories. However, he quickly becomes engrossed in the strangely relatable tale of love & betrayal and how Saeter and Skault trick the underworld out of a very special prize…

“I enjoyed this book so, so much. I love stories within stories and found family set-ups, and How Saeter Robbed the Underworld combined these two in the best of ways, resulting in a beautifully crafted, heartfelt and moving story. […] Meredith Katz crafts wonderful, heartfelt novellas, bringing to life characters you can’t help but feel connected to even in the short space of time you get to know them. I can’t wait to read more of her works in the future.”

“How Saeter Robbed the Underworld is a perfect example of a short story that works within the limited word limit beautifully. It’s captivating, charming and unique story that is fully fleshed out with nicely paced plot and plenty of character development. I’m amazed how well the story worked, and while I’d love to read full novel, this was enough. This might just be the best executed short story that I’ve ever read.”
