Ecstasy Claimed - Setta Jay

Last year I discovered this new gem in the romance/sci fi & fantasy section of Netgalley and holy moly am I in love with this series.

 

Ecstasy Claimed continues telling the story of how the Guardians are struggling to keep the people under their protection safe from Cyril's madness and Elizabeth's cruelty, while pushing them further towards their destined mates.

 

Alyssa is a fantastic heroine and I am super in love with her. I like that she didn't wait for Gregoire to find the courage to go get her, and instead went to become her own person when she found out about him. I also loved how she did that, the choices she made, even though it infuriated her mate (good for her!).

 

I understood why Gregoire decided to stay away from his mate, I really did. I also admired his self-control. He could have taken advantage of the situation, but he proved to be worthy of being a Guardian of the realms by not abusing the gift given to him. Although yes, I'll admit it, I did enjoy seeing him suffer a little bit because of his mate, because he did kind of deserve it. He could have at least let her know he existed, right?

 

The thing that I love most about this series is that it's not just about Gregoire and Alyssa, you also have Sam and Erik going forward with their relationship and starting to heal from what Cyril put them through. We also get to know more about Cyril and to understand how truly evil he is, making it pretty obvious that if he is as evil and deranged as he is, I can only imagine how his father, Apollo was.

 

I am very excited to read the rest of the series, which I'm currently bingeing on, and I'm even more excited about the upcoming spin-off. If you're a fan of paranormal fantasy, you definitely have to read this series, now!

ARC Review Copy

 

The descendant of two almighty Gods and a Guardian of Earth, Eirykr “Rykr” is born of immense power. Yet, no amount of strength or skill can save him from the curse that tore him away from his first and only love. Turned into a shadowy assassin, he wields the demons bound to his soul with the ruthlessness of a blade. For nearly a decade, he’s searched for the key to free himself, all the while watching over and dangerously craving the beautiful mate who believes she’s driven him away.

 

Lucy is a born protector, a trait of her Guardian lineage. When her greatest gift was torn from her, leaving a gaping hole in her soul, she refuses to allow a young Rykr, her known mate, to suffer the same dire consequences. Her fear forces her to make a haunting decision and with a grave threat, she crushes him, demanding they part for a decade. Yet, as the years pass she can feel him watching her from the shadows, conjuring wild fantasies that make her ache for him to finally end their torment.

 

As time ticks toward the decade mark, dark forces rush to descend. Will Rykr’s secret and relentless need to protect Lucy condemn them to a hopeless destiny of constant craving? Or will Lucy bind them for all eternity, no matter the violent threat to her very soul?

 

Warning: This title contains dirty talk, bad language and erotically charged scenes meant to scorch your eReader.

The children of the Guardians are all grown up….
What new threats await them as they find their true mates…

 

Ever since the end of The Guardians of the Realms series and the announcement that Ms. Jay planned to write a spin-off series which featured the children from those matings. I’ve been ecstatic and waiting eagerly.

 

I’ve been a fan of Ms. Jay’s from the begging when she popped on the scene with her very fist book Ecstasy Unbound and each installment then after in The Guardians of the Realms series. This spin-off carries all the wonderful things that capture me. The writing is full of passion, romance, and action. The plot is intriguing, the mythology is cool, and our couples set the sheets on fire.

 

This couple has a beautiful romance. Lucy and Ryker are two of the children of the Guardians and they discovered at a young age that they are mates. Too young to bond, but they still ended up having a great friendship until they where pulled apart. I felt for both Lucy and Ryker. The loneliness of their separation and then the danger that has claimed Ryker.

 

I completely adored return to the Guardian world, seeing old favorites, and meeting the children. I love how each character is distinct with their own unique powers and gifts. I liked that we get to see how the human world is coping with the realization that they where never alone. That Gods, powerful beings, and monsters do exist.

 

This spin-off can be read on it’s own and Ms. Jay gives enough background to pull you in and take you away, but personally I’d recommend reading The Guardians of the Realms series first and meeting the parents and friends. Though it’s not necessary.

 

Rated: 4 Stars

LOVED IT!!
Destined to Crave (Descended of Guardians) (Volume 1) - Setta Jay

Lucy and Eiryke “Rykr” grew up together, both being descendants of Guardians and Gods. They had always been close but it wasn’t until Lucy was turning twenty that they realized they were soul mates. Being several years older that Rykr, Lucy breaks his heart and demands he stay away from her for 10 years to enjoy his youth. She had no idea the torment he would go through due to a curse he was given until she can no longer stay away from him.

This is the spin-off series of Setta Jay’s Guardians series that I devoured as they were released. I was really excited to learn that we’d be able to get more of this world she has created, a loose spin on Greek mythology. I loved getting to know Lucy and Rykr as they battle a new threat.  It was a quick read but there was plenty of hawtness, a full character feel and a complete story. I also liked the brief appearances by some of my favorite characters from her previous books. I highly recommend.

An Excellent End to an Excellent Series
Eternal Ecstasy - Setta Jay

Hroarr, the ruling God of Thule, is preparing for the upcoming battle against the Destroyer of Worlds. Because of his power, he’s at the point where not much affects him emotionally anymore. Then he senses Sirena, the last of the Guardians to not have found her mate. When Sirena figures out that Thule is her mate, she’s not exactly happy, considering he’s half barbarian. However, when she’s forced to stay with him, she starts to see the good in him, as well as what he has to deal with to save his own planet. Hopefully, between them and the others, they will be able to put an end to the Destroyer of Worlds.

First off, I need to start by saying I’ve really enjoyed this entire series and I’m sad to see it end. It’s another one where the overall theme is steeped in Greek mythology, but the author does such a great job that I can just really enjoy it. In this book, not only do we see the final Guardian find her mate, but we also see the end of the overall plot that started in the first book. I really enjoyed the book. I loved the characters as well as the characters from the other books POV popping in and out. I highly recommend.

* This is the finale of the Guardians and the Realms series and is not meant to be read as a standalone title *

 

As the ruling God of Thule, Hroarr's priority is the survival of his world. Gifted with the ancient ability of sjá, he has seen the birth and destruction of hundreds of worlds. This incredible power comes at an enormous cost, yet its toll seems to ease in the presence of a hauntingly seductive healer from Earth.

 

Sirena’s life is comprised of duty. Duty to her Guardian family, to healing those of her world and, most of all, the overwhelming duty to right the wrongs of her secret and vile bloodline. With everything on her plate a ruthless warlord God from another world is the last thing she needs, no matter what fate and her heated body demands. 

 

Will a dark Destroyer of Worlds bring upon the end of Earth and Thule or will two strong-minded beings fight and discover their own eternal ecstasy? 

 

Warning: Take one possessive, dirty talking Warrior God and one smart, no nonsense Healer; combine and shake things up for explosive results and scorching content meant for mature audiences!

Eternal Ecstasy is the final installment in the Guardians of the Realms series by Setta Jay. It’s all been leading up to this one explosive world altering event for the Guardians.

 

It’s always sad to say goodbye to characters that have entertained you. I do hope that we might get to return to this world again; either with novellas or a spin-off. The world has been fascinating, the characters are memorable, and the writing is fantastic.

 

Sirena, I have loved her since the moment she was introduced. She is such a workaholic and devoted to what she does. Hroarr, Alpha and Dominate. His word is law. This couple just didn’t seem to connect like the others did for me. I didn’t feel that soul mate bond between them. Their mating was not the typical mating we have seen in the other books. I liked that it was different and their romance was super-heated, but my issue and reluctance with this couple is due to Hroarr. At first he was too much, but once their mating started to progressing things changed and he ended up not being so bad. I still don’t love him, but I don’t hate him either. It’s middle ground for me with Hroarr.

 

I loved all the mind-blowing surprises we got. Some were happy and some were heartbreaking. The ending epilogue was: Wonderful! Sweet! Adorable! It gave us a look at the life of all the Guardians and Mates. Awww!

 

What a wonderful series and a lovable end. I highly recommend the Guardians of the Realms to those who love unique worlds, characters, and a lot of steamy romance.
