Blurb for ARES
Prince of the Underworld and Lord of Fire, Ares was banished from his home by his father, Hades, two centuries ago and given a new duty and purpose—to keep our world and his from colliding in a calamity foreseen by the Moirai.
Together with his six brothers, he fights to defend the gates to the Underworld from daemons bent on breaching them and gaining entrance to that forbidden land, striving to protect his home from their dark influence. Caged by the manifestation of his power, held apart from those he loves by his own fire and starved of physical contact, Ares lives a cold existence driven by duty and the desire to return to his world.
Until his world collides with a daemon who steals his power and a mortal female who shatters the ice around his heart and awakens the true fire within him—a soul-stirring passion both dangerous and seductive.
Megan has wandered far from her home, driven from everyone she loves by the devastating realisation that she is different to them all. Unsure who to trust in the world, she keeps to herself, until a fateful stormy night brings a temptingly handsome warrior crashing into her life and into her heart—a warrior who seems to hold powers more frightening and marvellous than her own.
When the New York gate comes under threat, and Ares is put to the test, will he choose his duty and regain the power he needs in order to save his world or will he choose the desires of his heart and sacrifice his fire so he can be with the woman becoming his whole world?
Misty’s Review of ARES
This was an awesome story I enjoyed it till the very end. Ares is a great start to this new series. I can’t wait for the release of the second book to this series.
Ares is the story of Ares and Megan. Ares was banished to protect the gates to the Underworld from a daemon horde. Megan left her home because she knew that she was different from everyone else around her.
The daemon horde have been wanting to get into the Underworld for the power that it holds, but Ares and his six brothers fight to keep them out. But the daemon have been able to take Ares powers from him and now Ares and his brothers have to find a way to keep them out.
Ares found Megan and now he has to protect her from the same daemon horde that is after him. Ares has fallen for Megan and now he must make a choice that can either keep them together or tear them apart.
Do I Recommend?
I would recommend this series to anyone who loves paranormal romance about gods and Immortals. I would reread this series over and over again.
My rating: I give ARES 5 out 5 stars (A)
