“Duty crumbles to ashes in the fires of love.” – Ravaged
An Eternal Guardians Novella – 1,001 Dark Nights Collection
Paranormal Romance readers who are interested in something off the vampire/shifter path will be delighted with the Eternal Guardians series by Elisabeth Naughton. This 1,001 Dark Nights fantasy/paranormal romance novella built around heroes of Ancient Greece and the Greek pantheon of gods and goddesses is pure delight. Not only does the author catch new readers up on the world this series is built around, but she delivers a delightfully embattled couple in Ari and Daphne. Set against each other from the start, the couple are forced to overcome obstacle after obstacle, including themselves.
Novellas seem to be especially tricky for some authors, but I am seeing many of these veteran authors just crush them lately. This 135 page read leaves very little to be desired – it is packed with action, words steaming right off the pages, and an interesting world surrounding equally interesting characters. This was a first time series read for me, and I will definitely be checking out the rest of these fabulous stories. In addition to this decently-priced novella, the first book in the series, Marked, is currently being offered for free in Kindle format on Amazon.
