Overview

To win the battle for his soul, he may have to sacrifice the woman who set him free.

Hades' Carnival, Book 1

Aimee Horner lives and breathes her career as a graphic novel illustrator, but she never expected it would invade her dreams. In recent months, worsening nightmares have pulled her into the darkest corners of Hell.

On a rare night out with friends at a traveling carnival, she finds herself strangely drawn to an abandoned carousel adorned with vividly exotic animals. One steed, a massive white tiger, is a temptation she can't resist. The moment she climbs upon him, her world changes forever.

More than five thousand years ago, Roric and his fellow shapeshifting warriors were imprisoned in their animal forms, a last-ditch effort by the goddess they served to save them from the horrors of Hell.

With one special woman's touch, he has a chance at freedom and redemption-but the clock is ticking. If he is still alive in twenty-four hours, the spell will be broken, and Hell will have no claim on his soul. The only hitch is his blazing attraction to Aimee. If only he could trust that she isn't merely a distraction sent by Hades-luscious bait to lure him from his mission.

Warning: This book contains an ancient curse, an imprisoned goddess, a graphic artist and the hot shapeshifting immortal warrior who turns her life upside down while they battle Hades and his minions for their immortal souls. There is also plenty of hot sex between the heroine and her hot, shapeshifting warrior. Just saying.

2.5 Stars ~Reviewed by SUZANNE & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog I really loved the premise of it; however, for me it just didn’t live up to expectation. ~ Under the Covers Aimee Horner has been having nightmares of being stuck in hell, which seem to get more vivid as time goes on, the only relieve she ever seems to get is when she dreams of her white tiger. But as a graphic novel illustrator she has always had a lively imagination and so she uses her nightmares to try and create her own graphic novel. But when she goes to a carnival with her friend, it seems that her nightmares are coming to life and so is the white tiger… I am so disappointed in this book! I really loved the premise of it; however, for me it just didn’t live up to expectation. I found myself losing interest in the characters as I was reading, they just didn’t hold my attention, although Roric, the hero of the story, was sexy and intense he didn’t stand out enough in a genre full of sexy and intense heroes. However, there were aspects of this book I did like, tension and atmosphere was created really well. This was especially the case when Aimee was having nightmares and whilst she was in the carnival N.J. Walters managed to make it seem creepy and unreal and I did enjoy those parts. But it did fall down in the romance department; this could have been because of my disinterest in the characters themselves though rather then any lack of chemistry on their part. Although this was book was okay and I loved the idea behind it, unfortunately this hasn’t captured my imagination like other Paranormal Romance series have. *ARC provided by publisher

Hades, demons and sadistic clowns, Oh My! Night of the Tiger I'm trying, as I write this, to imagine Judy Garland cozying on up not to a Tin Man, not to a scruffy but timid lion, not to an adorable bunch of puff bodied Munchkins, but to a man-creature older than recorded time itself. N.J. Walters has stepped into the ever shifting sands of the Greek Gods of old, brought tendrils of their legends forward and told tales written in the past that must come to fruition in the present with such passion and danger you dare not stop to take a breath. Demons, insane circus comedians, a goddess, long forced into mere skin and bones of her former self, and the Lord of the Underworld, too physically beautiful not to nearly blind you, and too evil not to make you fear the place you've landed inside his design with every skittering beat of your heart. My daughter, Kat Holmes is my resident Greek Mythology GENIUS. Since the beginning of HER writing career, she has been molding stories around the ancient gods, bringing them into these more modern...better?...times. Because of Kat when I see a new take on these ancient specters from times long gone, I find myself, like a magnet drawn. Can N.J. Walters, an author I have reviewed before and admire deeply, measure up to the already high standards I place on all story telling involving the God's my daughter knows inside out and upside down? N.J. Walter's writing voice consistently packs a wallop worthy of trusting her to take us into the nefarious lair of the God of the Underworld, Hades. The far too gorgeously treacherous Immortal, Hades, is here, with creatures as flawlessly grotesque as he is exquisitely beautiful. Demonic things of all shapes, sizes, and temperaments pack the pages of this powerful walk, through, around, and deeply into, hell...and they are all bent on preventing the heroine from saving the hero N.J.'s demented deity Hades means to crush at all costs. A-1 story telling. A-1 writing talents. A-1 entwining of passion and fear. A-1 brilliantly layered journey into a high octane world of suspense...and love. A full package of anciently modern TNT. FIVE STARS for Book One in this Hades Carnival Series, NIGHT OF THE TIGER.

The premise of the book is great. I truly enjoyed reading the entire series but I have one major complaint. I feel she took too much liberty with  Hades' character. Hades is not the devil as christians know him. Hates is simply the god of the underworld. The underworld is also not hell. The underworld is where every mortal goes when they die. It consists of the fields of punishment,  Asphodel, Elisium, and the Isle of the Blest. My point being, if you are going to write a book based on the Greek gods don't change their nature to make it fit your book. Change your book to fit the nature of the gods. I still enjoyed the books very much even if my eye did twitch every time she made Hades into the devil.
