Overview

After losing her parents in a brutal attack from a monster straight out of her nightmares, Gwendolyn Preston tries to pick up the shattered pieces of her life. Along with her best friend, she moves to a small fishing village on the coast of Maine to find a new life away from the nightmares that haunt her. Just when she believes her life could go back to normal, the deliciously dark and handsome Markus Sullivan disrupts her hopes to grieve in peace.
Markus drew the short straw when it came to being the liaison between his father, Ares—God of War—and his brothers. When he discovers that the earth bound demi-gods, known as the descendants, have banded together to start another rebellion against the gods, it becomes his number one priority to stop them.
That is until he meets Gwen, the granddaughter of Aphrodite, and the next target of the descendants. Together, their path is rife with passion and danger. It might take more than the son of War to win this battle…Gwen herself.

I have read other books by this author and really enjoy them so i decided to give this series a try.  This story had me hooked from first page to the last.

    Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Chelle: War's P

    Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Chelle:

    War's Passion was my first foray into the lovely imagination of Lia Davis, and what a great place to start. A family of dragon shifters
    descended rom Ares' dragon a la the legend of the Spartoi, Demi-gods & goddesses descended from Artemis, Aphrodite, Nyx, the Fates &
    more, a lovely open society world in a quaint seaside town, a surprising twist, an antagonist with tension (also a family member) and some
    red hot passion. 

    Trying to get away from destructive events of her past, Gwen (our heroine) moves to a small town in Maine with her best friend and
    adopted sister. Unbeknownst to her, however, Markus (our hero) and his brothers - the same types of creatures that haunt her nightmares -
     live there as well, and their fates are inexorably intertwined.  

    As the brothers try to stop their rogue brother and his band of misfits from starting a war with the gods and protect Gwen, her sister and the
    other Descendants from being tools in Garrick's nefarious plot, we get a wonderfully paced and fresh new paranormal romance in a 
    fantastic new world full of myth and magic

    I'm really looking forward to Ty and Ash's book in book #2.

    **I normally wouldn't do this, but I feel it unfair to the readers not to mention it. There were a lot of editing issues in the book
    (I purchased the eBook copy). The story was really, very good, but you do need to try and ignore the misused words,
    missing words, etc throughout the book and just concentrate on the tale.

    So I have read all of Lia Davis¿ Ashwood Falls Series and fallen

    So I have read all of Lia Davis’ Ashwood Falls Series and fallen in love with her characters. I can’t get enough so I figured I would try her new series Sons of War. I haven’t really gotten into dragon shifters yet, but I’m so glad I tried this one out. The story was short and sweet. I loved that we get a sneak in to a couple of the other matings that will be coming up as well. I can’t wait for Ash and Ty’s story or for Zavier and Elle’s. I love both pairs.

    There was action, smoking chemistry and a love that unfolded beautifully in War's Passion. Gwen was a strong heroine who had been through an emotional hell. She faces her demons and deals with the aftereffects of the attack on her parents. She doesn't give up and is ready to train to fight the bad guy immediately.

    I loved this book and can't wait for Ashes of War. War's Passion leaves off with a great beginning to that book!

    The first book in the Sons of War series is an intriguing and ex

    The first book in the Sons of War series is an intriguing and exciting paranormal romance featuring dragons and the Greek Gods that sends chill down the spine.
    Trying to get away from the nightmares that haunt her, Gwendolyn Preston moves to a small fishing village on the coast of Maine with her best friend. But much to her surprise the deliciously dark and handsome Markus Sullivan disrupts her attempt at a normal life.  Markus has discovered that the earth-bound descendants of the gods have banded together to start another rebellion against the gods and it becomes his number one priority to stop them. That is until he meets the next target of the descendants, Gwen- granddaughter of Aphrodite and together their path is rife with passion and danger.
    This fast paced and smooth flowing plot keeps readers on the edge of their seats with action, suspense and romance.  The author brings the mythological to life with well written scenes, vivid imagery and enchanting characters that capture the imagination and keep the reader thoroughly engaged to the very end.  Gwen is a traumatized young woman who captures the heart with her inner strength that finally shines through and Markus the reluctant leader of his brothers in this war against the descendant is so charming especially when he tries to hide his smiles and pretend he doesn’t have a heart.  Together they make a wonderful couple and along with the great cast of gods, goddesses, and demi- gods ensure that the reader wants to know more.
    The attraction between Markus and Gwen sizzles with passion from every page, but the romance will take a little work, Gwen has to overcome her nightmares and Markus believes that they will be dire consequences to his mating with Gwen.  
    The author has created a fantastic new world with her own version of the myths that brings for a refreshing change and a very interesting story line that I was totally captivated by from the very beginning.  I love dragons and these take my breath away, I can’t wait to read more of this mesmerizing story and the spellbinding characters.
