Official Description: (This is book 1 of the Eternal Guardians series)
THERON – Dark haired, duty bound and deceptively deadly. He’s the leader of the Argonauts, an elite group of guardians that defends the immortal realm from threats of the Underworld.
From the moment he walked into the club, Casey knew this guy was different. Men like that just didn’t exist in real life—silky shoulder-length hair, chest impossibly broad, and a predatory manner that just screamed dark and dangerous. He was looking for something. Her.
She was the one. She had the mark. Casey had to die so his kind could live, and it was Theron’s duty to bring her in. But even as a 200-year-old descendent of Hercules, he wasn’t strong enough to resist the pull in her fathomless eyes, to tear himself away from the heat of her body.
As war with the Underworld nears, someone will have to make the ultimate sacrifice.
I love mythology, I always have, I mean my cats are named after Titans (Kronos and Rhea) and we plan on naming future animals after Greek gods. So, yeah for a mythological based book romance, yeah except it’s that same theme that it is oh so popular these days, soul mates. Finding that needle in the haystack and every book is about a different character, I guess there are only so many new ideas that can go around and honestly when I first started reading this I didn’t think I’d enjoy it, it just has that familiar formula. Eventually though I warmed up a bit to it because it does have a different spin, it’s based around the descendants of gods, the Argonauts and a mythological community that are full of folks who are part gods part mortals. Theron (our hero) is a descendant of Hercules and he is tasked to go find his future wife who escaped into the mortal world, Isadora, and he’s attacked by demons and a lowly human, Casey, rescues him and yeah instant attraction. There’s a lot going on in this story and the soul mate thing is kind of the side story, even though it’s important, it’s not the most important thing going on in the book. After getting into the story, I did like it, it was well written and I did like how the gods were involved in all this. I look forward to picking up book 2.
