Starring the immortal warriors of the zodiac

Charming, proud, and impulsive, Leo Warrior Brody Talbot is fighting what may be his final battle. Enyo, the Goddess of War, plans to fulfill an ancient prophecy to destroy humanity by harnessing the dark power of the Summoning Stones of Egypt. There's only one person who knows enough about the stones to help Brody stop her-beautiful museum curator Ava Harrison.

Never in all his centuries has Brody met a woman who enthralls him like Ava. But, bound to protect her, he struggles to deny his passion as they are drawn into a dark and dangerous final reckoning between good and evil.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Fox debuts with a strong start to the Warriors of the Zodiac series, featuring immortal warriors created by the goddess of justice to balance the destruction sought by Enyo, a goddess of war. Enyo plans to steal the five Egyptian Summoning Stones and take over the world. Eons-old Brody Talbot, the Leo Warrior, is determined to stop her. Ava Harrison, whose late father discovered the stones, is set to curate a show of them at her museum. Only when Brody becomes her protector does she realize she's able to harness the stones' energy. As romance blossoms, Ava, whose life was pretty dismal until Brody came along, suddenly zings to life and readily joins the fight. Powerful romance balances occasionally clumsy world-building and will please fans of dark romantic fantasy. (Mar.)

    I Also Recommend:

    Warrior Ascended is a new paranormal series that uses the Greek Gods as the basis of the story. I was a bit hesitant to buy it because the Greek God thing has been done to death and no one can do it better than Kenyon, but I'm glad I bought it!

    Addison Fox creates a world where the heros were created by a Greek God to "save the world". This is not a new approach, but the story cannot be confused with any of the other series I have read that take this approach to build the story line. In this series, the heros were created based on the "balance" in the heavens among the stars and each hero was created as a reflection of one of the signs of the zodiac. There are twelve groups of heros throughout the world placed to protect the humans and each groups is made up of 13 heros (after all, Gemini IS a twin).

    Book 1 in the "Sons of the Zodiac" series does a nice job of explaining how the heros came to be, what their job is and how they work together. In this book, we meet the Leo of the group we are following and we find that, like all the heros in these series, he has some personal issues to work though...as does the heroine. While the overall plot line isn't a surprise, there are some unexpected twists that help keep things interesting. The characters are well developed and the book does a good job of introducing the other members of this group of heros that will -hopefully - appear in the next books.

    Although not up to the standards of J.R. Ward, Sherrilyn Kenyon, Lara Adrian, Jessica Anderson, or Meljean Brook (seriously, when you are comparing a book to the creme de la creme of the genre you have to kind of expect that, right?), Warrior Ascended was still good enough to make my recommended read list and Addison Fox has the potential to hit my top 15 list. I am looking forward to more books in this series and, if they are as well done as this one, I expect to be reading her stuff for a long time to come.

    Didn't finish, actually :(

    I was so excited when I saw this book and read the backliner! It sounded like such a wonderful premise! But thirty or so pages into it, I put the book down. While the storyline was intriguing and the characters well-written in the pages I read, I just couldn't understand the need to smut the book up with SO much bad language and crude sexual references. I'm not a prude, by any means--but THIS much bad language and so many crude references (sometimes several in a meager two paragraphs) just jolted me right out of what could have been a good story. I'm so disappointed, really. I really would have liked to finish it. The author seems like she can write very well, as I noticed early on by her solid characters and early pacing. But couldn't it have been done with less language and such thrown in? Darn.

    A good start!

    This book was an excellent start to a series that could be the next paranormal romance want. This book opened with introducting the hero, herione, and possible heros for uncoming books. This was a little slow to start leaving a lot of information to be discovered later in the book. But it did expand on information and lead into an ending that allows for all the characters to have their own books.

    The hardest part to expand is going to be our "bad" guy - the Goddess of War. There is only going to be so much you can take from her - I am looking forward to see what Ms. Fox does to keep us wanting to find out what she is going to do next.

    I know that the first book in a series can be the "slowest" and the one to deliver the most informtion. Keep reading though- it is an engaging read and it does a great job in keeping you entertained and wondering when the next book is coming out.

    The first Sons of the Zodiac saga is a superb urban fantasy romance

    Enyo the Goddess of War plans to steal five Egyptian Summoning Stones that will enable her to rule the world. Themis the Goddess of Justice to abate the mass destruction that Enyo has set in motion creates immortal warriors to fight for her cause of balancing the scales.

    One of Themis' fighters Leo warrior Brody Talbot is assigned to protect museum curator Ava Harrison. She is grieving her father's murder, but excited over running his exhibit at the American Museum of Natural History in Manhattan where the ancient summoning stones her dad found are going to be displayed. Her only concern besides her father's death is the hunk of an archeologist Brody working with her. As they fall in love, she has horrific visions that she believes are stone induced.

    The first Sons of the Zodiac saga is a superb urban fantasy romance starring an eons old warrior and a mousy curator. The story line is action-packed as the Goddesses battle through minion over possession of the stones. Fans will enjoy the Fifth Age of Man as the Leo Warrior Ascended with the mortal he protects to fight the forces of Enyo.
