Zander - the most feared of all the Eternal Guardians. It's rumored he can't be killed, and he always fights like he has nothing to lose. But as a descendant of the famed hero Achilles, he's got to have a vulnerability . . . somewhere. Forces of daemons are gathering and have broken through the barriers of the Underworld. Now more than ever the Eternal Guardians are needed to protect both their own realm and the humans'. Zander can't afford to think about what might have been with the bewitching physician he once regarded as his soul mate. But with eternity stretching before him, he also can't fathom spending his life without the one woman who makes him feel most alive. Perhaps he's found his weakness, after all . . .
"This second in Naughton's Eternal Guardian series has wonderful characters. The combination of old-world gods and modern technology is fascinating. Violent and bloody, it's action packed and exciting with a cliffhanger ending." (RT Book Reviews)

Story had potential, shame it didn't quite achieve
Wouldn't say well spent or not but rather benign, take it or leave it
I enjoy the mythology angle and the underworld, demon v hero aspects
Yes but please give the women more backbone. They don't have to be butch but some self respect wouldn't go amiss.
I was actually pleased to get to the end of this book. I've read the previous ones but the 'heroine' in this one made the previous weak women characters look quite dominant. I hated the pathetic repetitive 'i don't understand' whining by Isadora. I also hated the overly breathy narration every time a female character was speaking. The storyline has great potential, shame it seemed to rely on such dubious female role models.
Having said all that, i do like this genre and will probably listen to the next in the series. It's easy listening.
A Fantastic Read!
