Deidre Knight--Red Kiss (Gods of Midnight novel)

Immortal warrior and Spartan slave River Kassandros has a special gift—the ability to transform into any weapon. But in a recent battle, he was trapped as a dagger, unable to become human again. His one hope of salvation is a mere mortal.… — When Emma Lowery beaches her kayak on an uninhabited island off the coast of Savannah, an ancient dagger seems to call out to her. Compelled by dark forces, Emma draws blood with his blade, freeing River. Now he's stronger, angrier—and exudes more sensuality than Emma can resist.

But a sinister power wants to claim River's destiny, and his precarious freedom. The pair must join the Spartan warriors to fight Ares himself. But can they face sacrificing their love to protect humankind from the war god's demonic plan?

{3.5 stars}
Slow started for me, It didn't really catch my attention until the second half of the book and then it took off. I don't really know what to say about this book. It was good, not great, a cute read for an afternoon. River & Emma's romance is cute in that "first love" kind of way. I was way more interested in Niko's story, it looks like it could be promising. Ari seems to have a path going into a future book based on the ending of this one. And I really would have liked to see River & Emma make a different decision at the end. A lot changes in this book and I like the series as a whole a lot more. Its not one I would rush out to buy or get on pre-order. But it is definitely on my wish list to keep reading.
