The first book in the Damian Eternal series is a book full of intrigue, romance and gods.
Jessi is a young woman trying to raise to teens by herself and is confronted by The Black God and coerced into stealing from Xander, the original vampire. Xander lives on the fringe of the Guardians and Gods, not really wanting anything to do with them and he knows that Jessi is up to something.
The author has created a unique supernatural world full of suspense and romance with action and surprising twists. The characters are strong with a lot of depth and their personalities leap off the pages. The great storyline flows smoothly from one scene to the next thoroughly engaging the reader.
The romance builds throughout the book as Jessi fights her attraction to Xander, not only because she knows that she is going to betray him, he is all about the one night stands. The courtship of these two is enough to keep the reader entertained, but then you add in the conflict between the supernaturals and you have a highly captivating story that you can’t put down until it is finished.
This series is a continuation of the War of Gods series and can be read without reading the War of Gods series. The author supplies enough of the previous story for the reader to pick up the storyline and go forward. She provides the information without confusing the reader or detracting from Xander and Jessi’s story. Although, I if you haven’t read the War of Gods, I do recommend them and I will certainly be looking forward to reading more of Damien Eternal in the future.
