Review: Marked (Eternal Guardians #1) by Elisabeth Naughton

THERON—Dark haired, duty bound and deceptively deadly. He’s the leader of the Argonauts, an elite group of guardians that defends the immortal realm from threats of the Underworld.

From the moment he walked into the club, Casey knew this guy was different. Men like that just didn’t exist in real life—silky shoulder-length hair, chest impossibly broad, and a predatory manner that just screamed dark and dangerous. He was looking for something. Her.

She was the one. She had the mark. Casey had to die so his kind could live, and it was Theron’s duty to bring her in. But even as a 200-year-old descendent of Hercules, he wasn’t strong enough to resist the pull in her fathomless eyes, to tear himself away from the heat of her body.

As war with the Underworld nears, someone will have to make the ultimate sacrifice.

My Bullets

Flow of book – 5
Believable romance – 5
Overall Plot – 4

I really loved the world building and mythology in this book. E. Naughton took what could have been a tired and another boring God based book and turned it into a fun and exciting read. There’s no shortage of Alpha males in this book. Casey and Theron were an great couple with lots of heat between the two. It never slows down, the action and pace of the book is great, so no yawn worthy novel here. My only true complaint could be that all the heroines these days are willing to throw themselves on a rock for just about every cause. Maybe I’m just the selfish type and wouldn’t do that, sometimes I find it very hard to believe that you would just say “Hey I’ll die for cause, no problem! Where’s the knife, let me do it for you” This didn’t deter me enough to not love the book and I’m looking forward to reading about the next six Guardians.
