Elisabeth Naughton--Entwined (Eternal Guardians)

ZANDER — The most feared of all the Eternal Guardians. It’s rumored he can’t be killed, and he always fights like he has nothing to lose. But as a descendant of the famed hero Achilles, he’s got to have a vulnerability… somewhere. —

Forces of daemons are gathering and have broken through the barriers of the Underworld. Now more than ever the Eternal Guardians are needed to protect both their own realm and the humans’. Zander can’t afford to think about what might have been with the bewitching physician he once regarded as his soul mate. But with eternity stretching before him, he also can’t fathom spending his life without the one woman who makes him feel most alive. Perhaps he’s found his weakness, after all…

{4.5 stars}
This series just keeps getting better and better for me. I love the story as a whole, it is action packed with lots of characters. And Naughton writes with a great sense of humor. Zander and Callia have spent the last decade apart, and for all the wrong reasons. And because of the lies and manipulations of others, they have lost a lot. I don't want to give away any spoilers, so i will just say there are a lot of surprises in this one. And one whopper of a cliff-hanger at the end. Just like the first one, this was a one day read for me. I got swept up in the story and the action, and couldn't put the book down. This series reminds me alot of Kenyon's Dark Hunters. The Greek Mythology basis, the various Gods and Goddesses who pop in and out, and all the daemons who need slaughtering, plus the Misos colonies. There are a lot of similarities in the structure. Each book is about another Argonaut warrior, but really its about the strong women who save the warriors from themselves. I don't know how else to describe it, just give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised with the first one, and now I'm completely hooked with the second one. Already ordered the third one........
