Orpheus–To most he’s an enigma, a devil-may-care rogue who does whatever he pleases whenever he wants. Now this loose cannon is part of the Eternal Guardians–elite warriors assigned to protect the human realm–whether he likes it or not.
Orpheus has just one goal: to rescue his brother from the Underworld. He’s not expecting a woman to get in the way. Especially not a Siren as gorgeous as Skyla. He has no idea she’s an assassin sent by Zeus to seduce, entrap, and ultimately destroy him.
Yet Skyla herself might have the most to lose. There’s a reason Orpheus feels so familiar to her, a reason her body seems to crave him. Perhaps he’s not the man everyone thinks… The truth could reveal a deadly secret as old as the Eternal Guardians themselves.
Orpheus… the totally misunderstood, reluctant hero. He’s been kind of a mystery since the beginning of this series. He liked it that way. The less people knew about him and the farther away he stayed from people the better. He only let a few people close… a very select few.
I really liked the way that the ‘real’ Orpheus has been slowly revealed in this series. He’s always played an important role, but it was always on the side lines… almost in the shadows. He was a snarky rebel who prided himself in not playing by the rules. He got under everyone’s skin (and something tells me that isn’t going to change) but he also proved his loyalty to the other Argonauts over and over again.
Skyla was the perfect match for Orpheus – in more ways than one. I don’t want to give anything away, so I’ll just leave it at that. Just know that nothing is as it seems, even if the characters think they have everything figured out.
A lot happened in this book. New characters were introduced. Some mysteries were solved and the surface was just scratched with others. Atalanta was still at the center of the mayhem and the other Gods were throwing their collective weight around as well. Never a dull moment, that’s for sure.
As with the other books in the Eternal Guardians series, there were plenty of heat, lots of action and more than a couple of heart breaking moments. More than I expected from Orpheus’ book but it was so worth it. I can’t wait to start the next book in the series and lucky for my I have Enslaved ready and waiting on my shelf.
