A thrilling new series featuring seven immortal Spartan warriors protecting mankind— and confronting passion
along the way...


Eternity has become a prison for Ajax Petrakos. Centuries after he and his Spartan
brothers made their bargain for immortality, Ajax struggles to maintain his warrior's discipline. His only source of
strength is his hope that he will soon meet the woman once foretold to him--the other half of his soul, Shay
Angel.

Ajax searches for his destined mate on the haunted streets of modern-day Savannah, but he isn't the
first to find her. Shay, the youngest of a powerful demon-hunting clan, can see the monsters that stalk the steamy
Southern nights--an ability that draws the deadly attention of Ajax's worst enemy. As Shay and Ajax race to solve a
chilling prophecy--one that could spell Ajax's death if they don't succeed--a fated passion arises, threatening to
sweep away everything in its path.

    Disappointing

    After being eager to read about Shay and Ajax, I found it hard to get through this one. It actually took me two weeks to finish, when it normally would only take a few days.

    A Steamy Urban Fantasy with a lot of Southern Soul!

    Thousands of years ago, Sparta's greatest warriors gathered at the narrow pass at Thermopylae to face down throngs of Persian invaders. Selflessly battling to their deaths to buy time for their vulnerable country, Ajax Petrakos and his fallen Spartan brothers wake at the banks of the River Styx, prepared to cross to their rewards in the Elysium Fields. Instead, the war god, Ares offers Ajax and his comrades Immortality in exchange for their agreement to protect mortal souls from evil for all Eternity. <BR/><BR/>When an Immortal Ajax returns Earth, he rushes home to Sparta to see his beloved wife and sons. But the Djinn Demon, Sable, has beaten Ajax home and worked a curse that prevents Ajax's family from recognizing or remembering him. An enraged Ajax battles Sable, and strips him of the one thing he loves--his glittering wings. With Sable banished to the underworld, Ajax turns his back on Sparta forever, alone, heartbroken, and not at all sure that living forever is such a good thing if he must do it without the ones he loves. <BR/><BR/>Ajax flees to London, where he has spent centuries spending the time he's not battling demons medicating his loneliness with ale and women. <BR/><BR/>When his friend, the Oracle tells Ajax that the "highest god of all" has asked her to send him to Savannah, Georgia to battle an evil that could lead to his death, he really isn't concerned whether he lives or not. Honestly, death would be a better fate than living forever for a cause he has lost the heart for. Ares has grown in increasingly fickle in his demands of the Spartans. With rumors of this new god, he's not at all sure where his loyalties should lie. At least in death, Ajax could return to the family who waits for him in Elysium. At least there, they would know him, love him. Forever. <BR/><BR/>When Ajax arrives in a Savannah graveyard, he finds a beautiful woman in a heated battle with Sable, who has escaped banishment. Only after rescuing her and taking her to safety does he realize that this woman is Shayanna Angel, the one promised to him. <BR/><BR/>But Shayanna isn't quite the demure, helpless lass he'd expected. A demon huntress in her own right, Shay is just now learning the limits of her own power, and she isn't all that sure Ajax is one of the good guys. But neither can deny that the passion growing between them could well destroy them. As the pair battles an evil that threatens to devour every pure soul in its path, they find themselves drawn into a love they are helpless to deny. <BR/><BR/>But what good is losing his heart to Shayanna Angel when death will only steal her away? She is, after all, a mortal. And he is sworn to live forever. <BR/><BR/>Deidre Knight pushed the boudaries of urban fantasy with this deeply spiritual story of good vs. evil.

    RED FIRE - edge of seat action and romance!

    300 magnificent, chiseled Spartan warriors sacrificed their lives at the narrow Thermopylae Pass battle in 480 BC to buy time for the Greeks who were pushing back the fierce invading Persians. ¿ After being slain, seven wounded warriors awaken along the River Styx, waiting for their journey to Elysium. But golden Ares, the Spartan god of war, appears and requests they pick up their armor once again and become Immortal Protectors of mankind for eternity. Without hesitation the brave warriors accept and become the GODS OF MIDNIGHT. ¿ RED FIRE¿S Ajax Petrakos, the last strapping, crimson cloaked Spartan to fall in battle, has gained special powers from Ares to fight the demonic djinn, who are out to steal souls. Ajax discovers their leader and his worst enemy, Sable, is stalking his long awaited soul mate, Shayanna Angel, in Savannah, Georgia. He must rush to save her. ¿ Petite, curvaceous Shay Angel had been seeing demons before Sable¿s first frightening attack. She¿s hurting because her demon hunting family has kept the family books of knowledge from her, thinking they were protecting her, and keeping her from her true calling. She must muster courage and strength and combine it with the pieces of knowledge she has gleaned on her own while she faces the vile Sable¿s clawed clutches. When Ajax arrives with his massive black wings, she has to decide if he is friend or foe. ¿ As Ajax proves himself and Shay falls in love with him, the big question arises. Are they fated to know each other for a blink in time? How can an immortal and a mortal spend an eternity together? While battling Sable, they find the answer to this mystery. ¿ Deidre Knight has spun a powerful, jaw dropping urban fantasy by weaving a masterful tapestry of history and the myths, present day time and eternal love.

    a fabulous urban romantic fantasy

    They were the magnificent seven Spartans of the mighty three hundred led by King Leonidas of Sparta who tied up the powerful Persian army at the battle of Thermoplyae. They sacrificed themselves to give the Greek army to the south time needed to prepare for the invaders. After observing these warriors die for the common good, the God Ares offered the chosen seven soldiers immortality in return for being humanity¿s protectors they accepted without a second of thought.-------------- Twenty-five hundred years later one of the immortals Ajax Petrakos knows his loneliness will end soon as the Oracle has informed him his other half lives in Savannah, Georgia. He immediately travels there to meet Shay Angel before his ancient enemy a malevolent demon abducts her. However, Shay is not helpless as she and the male members of her clan see and hunt demons she is the first female to be able to see the evil ones. As they come together to fight the immoral demonic djinn, he knows his passion for her is a distracting emotion in combat especially if a prophecy is true predicting death while she sees his dark wings and knows he is not an angel although he seems to offer her love.------------------- RED FIRE is a fabulous urban romantic fantasy in which Knight¿s mythos combines the ancient Greek Gods with the Spartan three hundred in a modern day setting. The story line is action-packed from the moment Ajax and Sable search for Shay and never slows down as one escapade leads to another. Although somewhat similar in tone to the numerous urban fantasy sagas inundating the market, sub-genre fans will enjoy this fine opening entry as Deidre Knight makes Greek Gods, Immortals, demons, and demon hunters seem real through a solid cast especially the doubts of the rude heroine.-------------- Harriet Klausner
