This is my favourite book so far contained in the "Myths of Origin" collection. The story follows the journey of a storm-god forced into a human body and charged with slaying an eight headed dragon. Chapters alternate between the god and the daughters that are each head of the dragon. Admittedly I loved the god's chapters the most. The formatting of the dragon chapters could be difficult to get through. All in all very intriguing and beautifully written.
