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…
I kind of like this one but there is still something that doesn’t work for me.
I am used to brotherhoods/warriors/alpha males who are protective of their females, who want to feed them, take care of them etc.
All the males treat the women so callously and that always gives me a pause.
Zander and Callia were alluded in the last book as being true mates, so in this book, we got to find out what drove these lovers apart for the last 10 years.
Again, it seems like everyone is a pawn in both the King’s game and in Atlanta’s game. I am really coming to despise this King who seems to ask everyone to sacrifice in a way he hasn’t.
I also feel bad for Queen-elect Isadora, who has lost another fiancée to another previously unknown half sister. That poor chick has crappy luck.
I want to read the next book because it’s Isadora’s but I can’t say that I am enjoying the males. In fact, I am kind of team Atlanta right now.
