Hunt of the Gods
by Amy Braun
(Areios Brothers #2)
Publication date: June 4th 2019
Genres: Adult, Urban Fantasy

 

 

Synopsis:


Two months have passed since Derek Areios—war-scion and heir of Ares—and the band of rogue scions he’s aligned with recovered both the Thunderbolt of Zeus and the Heart of the Devourer and returned them to the Gods. During the battle, Derek discovered he could control not only the element of fire, as all war-scions can, but also the dark element “aether,” making him the only scion alive to wield two types of elemental magic.

 

Commanded by Zeus to retrieve the Trinity Weapons and the Shards of Cronus, Derek and the rogue scions are thwarted in their goal by a gang of water-scions with a grudge against one of the rogues—Thea, heir of Poseidon. Both groups travel to an uninhabited island to recover one of the Shards––the Eye that belonged to Cronus, King of the Titans. But what they encounter will lead them down a path of brutal betrayals, hard truths, painful memories, and desperate actions.

 

With angry and impatient gods breathing down his neck, a curse that allows Ares to control him, a prophecy he’s desperate to avoid, a magic spear corrupting his thoughts, and two forms of elemental magic, Derek has a lot of baggage—and a lot of power. Will the price of using that power to satisfy the Gods be too much for him to pay?

 

 

Mythological monsters, explosive magic, and devastating truths take center stage in the second novel of the action-packed AREIOS BROTHERS series from Amy Braun.

 

 

 

Two months ago, they recovered the Thunderbolt of Zeus and the Heart of the Devourer. During the battle Derek made a discovery about himself that makes him the only scion alive to wield two types of elemental magic. Now Derek and the band of rogue scions that he’s aligned with has been commanded to retrieve the Trinity Weapons and the Shards of Cronus. But they have work with a gang of water scions as well and the mission leads them down a path of brutal betrayals, hard truths, painful memories and desperate actions.

 

Smokin’ thunderbolts, this urban fantasy story has some serious energy and gripping emotions that flow from every page of this powerful read. The events of this story has the rogue scions and a gang of water scions reluctantly joining together to achieve Zeus’ command but there is no trust between the two groups and it is obvious that there are some dirty, underhanded tricks up the water scions sleeves. Somehow, during all of this excitement, there is some romance blossoming with the group of rogue scions, so those flirty but unsure emotions are mixing in with all the other potent emotions that flow the pages.

 

Although the story does have a disturbing and OMG cliffhanger ending, there is never a dull moment to be found. This complex and fast paced plot has so many twists and turns that readers have to borrow Hermes’ sandals to keep up as it is full of stunning surprises, frightful prophecies, blood and guts, deadly decisions and exhilarating danger that has readers’ knees bounding up and down in giddy, adrenaline pumping excitement.

Recent Release Review! Sapphire Flame (Flame #7) Caris Roane!

 

 

Good Morning Readers! Today, I am visiting Five Bridges and sharing Sapphire Flame by Caris Roane! Enjoy and don't forget to add Sapphire Flame to your shelves!

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

 

Having a strong dislike for fae of any kind, a wolf’s plan to become alpha gets derailed when a beautiful fae saves his life during a vicious rogue attack…

Davis Grant, an officer of the Five Bridges Border Patrol, is next in line to become alpha of the Meldorin Pack. Because the current alpha is a psychotic monster who brutalizes his own pack members, Grant has made it his number one priority to bring the alpha down. But when a rescue in the deadly Graveyard throws him together with Natalie, a powerful fae female, he finds his attention shifting abruptly to her. His attraction to this woman has his bonding instincts flying at light speed. But he despises the futurists of Revel Territory, women like Natalie, who used their gifts against Savage’s wolves during the Fae-Wolf Wars. When his alpha demands a dominance battle, will Grant set aside his deep prejudice and join forces with Natalie? Or will he go it alone and face certain death?

 

The last thing Natalie McKinnon ever wanted to do was get involved with a wolf of Savage Territory. But when a ghost appears and sends her to the Graveyard to save Grant’s life, Natalie finds herself drawn to this powerful, handsome wolf. She resists her attraction, however, since her best friend died at the hands of wolves during the Fae-Wolf Wars. But when she develops an iridescent astral wolf of her own, and as new powers emerge, she must set aside her animosity or face capture and enslavement at the hands of the brutal alpha of the Meldorin Pack.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

The newest book in the Flame series is a sensational and exhilarating read that keeps readers glued to the pages as the hero and heroine go up against a vicious and evil alpha. Davis and Natalie are strong, charismatic characters that take Five Bridges by storm with fiery chemistry and amazing gifts. The attraction may be undeniable but this hero and heroine both have some issues left over by the past that directly impact the way this relationship progresses which has quite a bit of emotional turmoil flowing from the pages. Both Davis and Natalie are take charge characters that really complement each other and make this story strong and a satisfying.

 

The fast paced plot flows smoothly from beginning to end building the suspense and excitement up to epic proportions as the battle between Davis and Natalie and the alpha comes to a head. The story is full of adrenaline pumping events, surprising twists which keeps this readers from putting the book down on their own but add in some amazing twists and elements and this story becomes highly entertaining. The characters come up with some unique solutions to the problems they face and they make plenty of mistakes which makes the story realistic and the characters more lifelike. There is never a dull moment to be found during this complex, sensational and exhilarating read.

Sapphire Flame is the 7th book in the Flame series

 

The Flame Series:

 

Thirty years ago, experiments in the U.S., with the powerful and addictive flame drugs, created five serums, called the alter serums. When taken with food or drink, these serums resulted in complete transformations of DNA.

 

Humans were no long human and, depending on which serum was taken, the individual involved became one of five alter creatures: Vampires, witches or warlocks, wolves, fae, or dead-talkers. Because of the violence inherent in the early alters — as they came to be known — anyone who underwent the horrifying transformation was sent to live in designation ghettos within the major cities.

 

Arizona’s ghetto, located in north Phoenix, became known as Five Bridges because of the large bridges that separated each of the warring alter territories. Barbed wire and thick, cement, prison-like walls formed a border between the U.S. and these ghettos. Any alter leaving Five Bridges without a passport, would be killed on sight. Powerful alters of each of the species serve as Border Patrol officers.

 

Illegal drugs became rampant within the alter world as well as a proliferation of sex clubs. Humans visited the ghettos every night to pay for experiences they couldn’t get in the U.S. proper. With a corrupt government, the rise of cartels, and the naturally violent state of the alter condition, chaos rules this world.

 

But in each territory, there are those extraordinary men and women, alters though they are, who fight every night of their lives to make Five Bridges a better place for all.

I confess I've had a love affaire with vampires for several years now, especially warrior vampires, the kind found in the books of Sherrilyn Kenyon, Lara Adrian and JR Ward. Though I've been published in Regency Romance under the pseudonym Valerie King--and yes one of my Regency Novellas features a vampire--one day I woke up knowing I had to create my own contemporary world of the warrior vampire.

 

For some mystical, magical reason, early in the process, my vampires appeared with enormous beautiful wings and it has been the most amazing experience to include flight in my novels, in both battle scenes and scenes involving spectacle. My special vampire world, published by St. Martin's Press, is introduced in the first book called, ASCENSION (12-28-2010). The second book, BURNING SKIES (May of 2011), opens up the world a little bit more. And even as I write this, I'm on the final draft of my third novel, WINGS OF FIRE (September of 2011). What a thrill it has been to live with my ascended vampires through the creation of this extraordinary, multi-dimensional world!

 

For more information about my unique take on the vampire mythos, check out my website at carisroane.com and my book release video on YouTube by putting in the search phrase, Caris Roane Ascension.

 

With every hope you'll enjoy reading my books set in the World of Ascension, All my best, Caris Roane

Storm of the Gods
An Areios Brothers Novel #1
by Amy Braun
Genre: Urban Fantasy


Thirty years ago, the gods of Greek legend returned to the world. Their return restored their powers, which had been spent in a cataclysmic battle with the Titans. With the ancient deities imprisoned in Tartarus, the Olympians now reside in Néo Vasíleio, formerly known as California.

 

Twenty-four-year-old Derek Aerios is a war scion, a descendant of Ares, the God of War. He and his brother, eighteen-year-old Liam, capture mythological creatures and rogue scions as part of Ares's elite military force. As he struggles to cope with his violent powers and the scars of a traumatic childhood, Derek tries to keep the two vows he has made: protect his brother, and never kill a human again.

 

But when Ares forces him to hunt and kill four rogue scions under Athena's control—by threatening Liam's life—Derek chooses to go after the scions in order to save his brother and keep his promise to himself.

 

Yet the closer Derek gets to the scions, the more he realizes that his orders are part of a deeper conspiracy that put him at odds with his mission and his conscience. Athena may not be the enemy, a traitor could be in their midst, and the Titans could be closer to freedom than ever before.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

This new urban fantasy series is off to a great start with a host of strong, complex characters that easily fascinate readers from the very beginning. The brothers, Derek and Liam are intriguing, full of life and courageous males that blow readers away with their determination and ingenuity throughout the story. Derek is the older brother and the story seems focusing on him so far, but it obvious that Liam plays a strong part in every decision that Derek makes, so they make a great team and readers can practically feel the loyalty that flows between them. They certainly need that loyalty and their bond as they are up against the Greek Gods in a fantastic setting where the Gods have re-emerged from obscurity and determined to take back their Godships by force. The author brings the setting to life with descriptive words that create a modern setting with a little of a futuristic feel and readers can easily imagine the Gods and how they would rule their world which makes it very easy for the readers to become completely absorbed in the intense and exhilarating story. The plot is fast paced and flows smoothly from one thrilling event to the next with lots adrenaline pumping suspense that builds throughout the story. There is never a dull moment to be found as the story takes readers on a complicated adventure full of exciting battles, betrayals, emotional turmoil and an extreme sense of expectation as each of the twists and turns of the story depends on life altering decisions and the whims of the gods.
