Iatee the Punishment Spirit is powerful, deadly and currently, a stuffed teddy bear.
He and the gods haven't seen eye-to-eye on punishment, justice and killing for a long, long time.
The gods want a kinder, gentler demon but Iatee won't change, so the gods have punished him.
For decades his spirit has been confined to one toy after another but the gods are finally giving him a chance. All he has to do is make one child love him and he'll be free.
His dreams are shattered when he's gifted to a child as payment for a vile act. Can he make her love him and save her from the horror of her life without sacrificing his freedom?
