This is the second book in this series. Just wanted to warn you if you haven’t read Poseidon’s Children yet. I’ll do my best not to spoil it for you. The story picks up around two years after Colonial Bay and, while some of my favorite characters aren’t in this story, some are. Carol and Alan are now living in Japan and settling in nicely when someone from Carol’s past comes calling. Kari is a very close friend from back in her college days. She’s asking for their help in finding her father. He disappeared after heading off to Nepal to find what he believes is the Ark. Not that he thinks it’s Noah’s Ark. The decision is made for them when a rampaging tiger crashes into their home, bent on obliterating them. Carol and Kari manage to take it out and Alan reluctantly joins them as they prepare to scale the frozen mountain of Makalu, the location of the Ark. Also a place of hidden danger and myth. Even the Sherpa won’t guide anyone up there. Local superstition says it belongs to the Yeti. Earl, now working for Homeland Security, is back and has a bigger role this time. He barely survives an attack by Hades Desciples. They want the old Gods back. Seems they forgot the bit about being slaves to them. Earl forms an alliance with the creatures that rescued him and they rush to protect his partner, laid up in a hospital. This second book delves deeper into the history of these creatures. I learned more about how they came to be here and why. There are three clans. Poseidon’s Children are water based. They take on the aspect of creatures from the deep. Zeus’ Warriors are human in appearance. Hades’ Desciples are beasts of all kinds. Some of nature and some of fantasy. All were created by someone or something for a reason that will be revealed. Werewolves, bats, yeti, satyrs, and many more monsters will keep your hair standing on end. Three clans. Three agendas One final outcome. And one heck of a cliffhanger ending! Just thought I’d warn ya. Zeus’ Warriors: Book Three in The Legacy of the Gods Series is coming soon and I’ll be there! If you love monsters, myths and urban fantasy, you’ll love this series and I recommend you give it a go. I received this book for my honest review.
