Loved It!
Hunted: An Eternal Guardians Novella - Elisabeth Naughton

Erebus spent hundreds of years as a servant of Hades. When Hades loses him in a game to Zeus, he is then forced to do Zeus’s dirty work as well as train his Sirens. When he’s sent to track down a rogue Siren-in-training, he doesn’t expect to find the one female he can ever remember being a bright spot in his darkness. Seraphine was doing good while training to be a Siren until one day she found out a dark secret the Gods were hiding. It’s a cruel joke against her that Zeus sends the one man after her that she knows she will never forget.

This was a great story. I loved the continuation from the previous novella. I love the way Erebus is forced to deal with feelings that he’s never felt before in his long existence. The author has built a world very familiar to anyone that loves Greek mythology and does a great job building strong characters. I can’t wait for the next story in this series. I highly recommend.

Hunted (Eternal Guardians #8.75) by Elisabeth Naughton
Hunted: An Eternal Guardians Novella - Elisabeth Naughton

Elisabeth Naughton’s HUNTED is a thrilling addition to the Eternal Guardians series.  Minor god of darkness, Erebus, has been tasked with hunting down one of Zeus’s Siren warriors.  He wasn’t expecting his target to be the nymph who stole his heart, Seraphine.  This fantasy romance is suitable for adult audiences.

 

Elisabeth Naughton continues to do a great job with her character development.  Erebus is an interesting god.  He is old and been through a lot.  He has been used by the gods.  I like that he goes after what he wants, and that he is protective of Sera.  I like Sera.  She is brave and noble.  She has a fascinating heritage.  Erebus and Sera have great chemistry.  I was amused by their conversations.

 

I enjoyed the plot. There were a lot of mystery and deception.  It tied in well with previous stories in the series.  At 120-pages, it was a quick read that was easy to get through in one sitting.  Eternal Guardians is a great series.  I would love to see it turned into a movie or TV series.  I’m looking forward to the next book.  I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

FCBD 2017: All-New Guardians Of The Galaxy #1 (All-New Guardians Of The Galaxy (2017-)) - Aaron Kuder,David Marquez,Gerry Duggan,Brian Michael Bendis

Marvel may be completely tone deaf when it comes to, let's say, one particular event their running right now.   They also have a lot of series that look like they won't be touched by said event: the Guardians and the Royals are in space, so it looks like Guardians of the Galaxy, I Am Groot, Royals and Black Bolt are safe, at least for now.   Luckily, the Defenders looks like a safe bet, too, if only because it looks like it's based on the TV shows on Netflix, or at least an amalgamation of the shows and the comics.   

 

And Marvel's FCBD books tend to follow the same pattern: new stories that highlight new series, or events, that they hope are huge.   That event, Spider-Man, Guardians of the Galaxy and Defends are up this year; I already spoke about the other comic, and this year?   Guardians makes sense.   Written by the author who wrote Deadpool, and tying into the movies.  Defenders ties into the upcoming Defender series, based on the four series thy already have out: Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist in that order.   (And I always hated the name Power Man; I'm glad Luke seems to be dropping that all around.   My friend asked me if I was serious and when I said 'yes,' he nailed why I hated that name: it's so generic.)

 

The Guardians is written by Duggan and is just hilarious.  I didn't think I'd be into the new Defenders - I've spoken about my Bendis fatigue, and yes, he writes Defenders.   However, I actually truly enjoyed this: it had some angst and a vicious circle of destroying ones enemies.  Looking forward to seeing where this series goes, although I'll most likely take it out of the library or buy it on sale later.

Loving this series
All-New Guardians Of The Galaxy (2017-) #2 - Gerry Duggan,Aaron Kuder

The Guardians first theft was a test for the second, more important, theft.  Then again, when someone wants you to steal from the collection of an immortal - a Celestial named the Collector - you know things might go sideways.   I mean, he named after himself after his hoarding obsession!   You know you're a hoarder when collecting isn't just the thing you do, it's so much a part of you, it's your name.   

 

And The Collector isn't your run-of-the-mill hoarder.   He only collects the good stuff.   The one-of-a-kind stuff.   And he's super serious about keeping that shit in his collection.   He doesn't just have a space-museum, oh, no.   The rooms can shift around.  He has robots and horrors as safety, as well as a buttload of mines.   And not just one kind of mine.   Some blow up if an organic being shows up nearby.   Some... I forget all the kinds, or even the others, because the organic-sensor mines stood out most.    But Rocket listed off a whole bunch of kinds. 

 

Drax still won't fight, which everyone figures he might have to.  In fact, when he kills someone, he screams at them that it's their own fault, he tried not to fight them, and he won't accept that guilt on his conscience, nope, not him. 

 

Gamora, however, is willing to murder everyone who gets close to her.  Robot, not a robot, whatever, all the same to her.   She also has a side deal with the buyer, as far as I can tell.   Rocket is pretty much the same, while Groot is tiny. And The Collector is... far huger than I remember, but hey, Celestial.   I'm willing to go with it, especially if the Guardians come out of this okay.
