DEMETRIUS—He’s the hulking, brooding
warrior his fellow Guardians avoid. Too dark. Too damaged. And given his
heritage, he knows it’s best to keep everyone at arm’s length.
is missing. The words pounded through his head like a frantic drumbeat. For her
own protection, Demetrius had done all he could to avoid the fragile princess,
his soul mate. And now she was gone—kidnapped. To get her back, he’ll have to go
to the black place in his soul he’s always shunned. As daemons ravage the human
realm and his loyalty to the Guardians is put to the ultimate test, Demetrius
realizes that Isadora is stronger than anyone thought. And finally letting her
into his heart may be the only way to save them both.
This is the 3rd book in this series, and I feel its the best so far. Elisabeth Naughton is moving into the level of JR Ward, Sherrilyn Kenyon, and Lara Adrian (in my opinion). Even though this series has no vampires in it, it is deeply woven with Greek Mythology. We have battling Gods, Demons, Fates, Horae, Argonauts, and lots of daemons. Each book is another couple (much like most series) and Demetrius and Isadora's story is the strongest of the series. Alot happens and even more questions get answered. But as with most great series, we have enough new plot happening that has us reaching for the next book. Demetrius is the perfect brooding, need to be saved, pushing the girl away for her own good, male lead. You want to hate him one page, and then hug him the next. Isadora has been a complicated character from the first book. I could never tell how her true path in this series was going to go. She seemed like a weak, troublesome princess. But not now, her true self shines thru. When you know what really matters most to you in life, you will go to the ends of the earth to save it. She is a true Queen. The characters are well written, and the plot moves smoothly, with enough sub-plot and layers to keep you on your toes. I can't wait to pre-order the next one....
