    The Fionavar Tapestry, by Guy Gavriel Kay: It's a trilogy of The Summer Tree, The Wandering Fire, and The Darkest Road, set in the "first world" of Fionavar (source of the legends that are echoed through all the other worlds).

    I get the feeling that he's a bit embarrassed by his debut work now, as his work has gotten more and more refined over the years, but it's a very worthwhile read. (Personally I feel like he hit his stride with the three one-offs that followed it, both refined and passionate -- The Lions of Al-Rassan, A Song for Arbonne, and Tigana. Achingly-beautiful "fantasy" stories about alt-histories that could have been.)

    So much that's memorable, and I love his later work even when it lacks the intense passion you can feel from him for the story in those three.
    Spoiler: a razor-sharp quote from A Song for Arbonne

    Looks like I'll need to get that one.
    A Song for Arbonne
    Heading to a discount book seller soon ... if it's in the same league as the Lions of, I must have it.

    the end of the Inheritance Trilogy.

    But change demi-god to godling (minor god) and change the reason to vengeance for being hidden away because the mere idea of his existence would kill his father.

    Wait a minute...about this whole The Dark One is a con theory...strip #1143...Thor doesn't say any of the gods doubt The Dark One's existence, what they doubt is whether he is actually a new color.
