Freya and Saul’s story began three hundred years ago. Saul descends from the Angel of Death and Freya is Valkyrie lost in hell, together their passion threatens to destroy the balance between heaven and hell. Trust has to be earned, vengeance needs to be served, but retribution demands a blood sacrifice. Maybe Saul shouldn’t exist, but with the dragons on the verge of war with the Krakens and the demons ready to battle the angels, a strong warrior is needed to battle the son of the greatest threat in heaven and the winner will claim the Earth and all the souls living on it.

 

The final book in ‘The Gaian Otherworld’ series is an excellent and exciting experience that calls to readers. As known from the previous books, all of the characters are strong, bold and memorable ones that really grab readers’ attentions and ensure that they want to know everything about them and their stories. Saul and Freya continue that excellent reign with their passionate romance which has been three hundred years in the making. Their relationship certainly has some emotional turmoil and some gnarly conflicts but their chemistry sizzles and has sparks flying right alongside all of the witty quips and snark, which gives readers some chuckles to add to the adrenaline rush.

 

The plot is fast paced and has some heart pounding and thrilling suspense that keeps readers on the edge of their seat as the good guys pull off some stunning stunts and the bad guys twist some unexpected surprises throughout. Be warned, there is no way to put this book down once readers have started reading it as it holds them hostage with a record breaking romance and a fierce, powerful battle over the Earth and every living soul on it.

Dragons of Retribution is the 4th & final book of The Gaian Otherworld series.

1 Dragons of Destiny

2 Dragons of Fae

3 Dragon of Chaos

4 Dragons of Retribution

 

 

 

AVAILABLE in ebook & Kindle Unlimited

From an early age I have loved faery tales and mythological stories - they welcomed me into their pages while I went on the adventure with the characters, mourning their loss when the book ended and they left my life.

 

As an author, my characters walk into my life and take over my home until the book is over. They visit often to share more stories that need told, and it is my pleasure to share them. I hope you love my characters as much as I do, they have lived with me for a long time, and I am merely telling their stories about their time in the Otherworld.

 

I live in a cottage near the sea. I love to write in my beloved faery garden filled with flowers, trees, birds, butterflies, and my favourite bumble bees. The cottage is in a sleepy seaside town where I enjoy walks in the sand with my beloved dog that goes with me everywhere.

***WARNING*** Includes a dark twisted hero and an even deadlier heroine that have enough passion to ignite the magical forge of Olympus.

 

Dragons of Chaos is the third in The Gaian Otherworld.


It can be read as a stand-alone paranormal romance.

 


 

 

The last descendant of a dragondom, Justus is the strongest Gaian assassin and Celeste belongs to the sacred dragon priestesses whose magic keeps the planet alive in the underrealm. They may be fated mates, but some endings are never meant to be for how can someone love the dark distorted soul of a trained killer or a woman who has learnt survive in a world of pain? With the fate of a planet on the line, the vessels of the gods must stand ready to open the gates of Olympus but are they willing to accept the challenge?

 

The third book in ‘The Gaian Otherworld’ series takes star crossed lovers to the nth degree as the strong, convincing hero and heroine of this romance struggle to overcome some gripping emotional turmoil that captures the hearts of readers. Justus and Celeste’s romance is energetic and passionate and while they are totally made for each other, they are from two different sides of life in ways that readers can only imagine. Justus and Celeste not only have to struggle with accepting themselves as they now are but along with the rest of the vessels of the gods, they must fight to save the entire planet from the Krakens and a dark fae / Nephilim that wants to devour the world.

 

The plot is faced paced and full of exciting and suspenseful events that keeps readers completely spellbound throughout as the group engages in some challenging tasks in order to achieve their goals. The story is full of unexpected twists and fresh unique elements that really spice up this story including some twists and turns that have readers’ eyes opening wide in stunned disbelief, but one thing readers know for certain is that this couple will go far.

Eehh
Winter of the Gods (Olympus Bound) - Jor... Winter of the Gods (Olympus Bound) - Jordanna Max Brodsky

Selena DiSilva is a disgruntled woman living in New York City. She always ends up finding trouble. So when a dead body appears on Wall Street, Selena must figure out who did it. For long ago, Selena was the Greek Goddess

This book was ok. There were a few things that bothered me. One, it seemed almost necessary to have read the first book, which I’d never heard of. Two, for some reason the perspectives changing didn’t work for me. Other than that, the writing was good and didn’t make me cringe at another author attempting to modernize Greek mythology. I would probably read another book from this author.

**I voluntarily read and reviewed this book

Didn't impress me with this volume, but I still like the concept
Greek Mythology: Beyond Mount Olympus - in60Learning
"It's not by chance what Americans say when in need of a specialized or precise term, that 'the Greeks have the word for it'." -Aikaterini Spanakaki-Kapetanopoulos

 

Let me start by saying that I still think that the in60Learning project is a great idea and I hope it puts out a lot of material. I just hope that in their rush for quantity, they don't skimp on quality. From the typographical errors to the way this was written, I think that's a real danger.

 

Still, let's focus on this volume -- they really did go beyond Mount Olympus in their coverage of Greek Mythology, let's look at the contents of this book:
An Overview of Greek Mythology
The Creation
The Gods of Mount Olympus
Other Gods, Spirits and the Stars
The Underworld and Other Beings in Greek Mythology
The Human Race and the Gods
Greek Mythology in Today's World


That's a lot for anyone to tackle in a book much longer than this -- it's a Herculean effort to get that much into a book this small (pun fully intended). But they go for more than an overview of Greek Mythology, they try to suggest some deeper meanings, to tie their topic into philosophical discussions and the like. Some of that worked, some of that seemed like a stretch -- and some fell flat (that last paragraph, in particular, was a complete mess). You've got to admire the effort, though.

 

Not only did they cover a wide range of topics, but they worked in a lot of detail -- maybe too much in some instances (including the Roman equivalent names at some points felt like they were striving for word count rather than being thorough).

 

One of the main theses of the book is the impact that Greek Myth had on Western Culture/the English Language, as is seen in the quotation I borrowed above and they utilized to drive home the point. Not only did they prove this point (in case anyone thought it worthy of debating), but they overdid it. At a certain point, the sections along these lines just became lists:


From the Greek god of sleep, Hypnos, is derived the word hypnosis.
From the Greek legend of the King Tantalus, is derived the word tantalize. He was condemned for eternity to stand up to his chin in the middle of a river with a fruit tree above him. Whenever he tried to drink the water, it receded from him, or grab a fruit, it pulled away from him.
From the Greek god of love, Eros, is derived the word erotic.
From the Greek goddess of love, Aphrodite, is derived the word aphrodisiac. . . .
From the god of fire and blacksmithing, Vulcan (Greek: Hephaestus), is derived the words volcano and vulcanizing.
From the Roman goddess of grain and farming, Ceres (Greek: Demeter), is derived the word cereal.

 

That goes on for pages (depending how you have your text size set). The facts are good, they're on point, but it's not good reading.

 

The basic overview of the Olympian myths, the origin of the universe, the war with the Titans, etc. was pretty solid. Nothing remarkable, but decently executed. The writing as a whole, however, didn't impress me -- frequently, but particularly as the authors tried to wrap up each chapter, the writing felt like it was lifted from High School term papers. I don't necessarily think that's a bad thing, but I got the impression that this series was supposed to be better than that.

 

This one didn't work for me, but I bet there are people out there who will be helped by it. These people didn't check out D'Aulaires' Book of Greek Myths so many times from 3rd to 6th grade that the library might as well have given me a copy (not counting the other books on the subject I read, reread, bought, etc. at that age) or haven't had kids during the Riordan-era of publishing. Basically, I should've skipped this one, I think. This slim volume took some big swings -- amount of material, range of material, a couple of the "Big Ideas" running through the book, and whiffed on them all (to stick with the metaphor, I do think it caught a piece of a couple of the pitches). A strong effort, but not one that worked for me.
