I was given this book in return for an honest review. This was a quick read, and I enjoyed the interaction between all the Gods. This is the story of Hercules and the finding of his mate so that Zeus can be rescued. Micah, the mate of Hercules, is a good man. He puts others before his own safety willingly. He also fully understands what his role in this new world that he has become a part of. Micah's strength helps Hercules accept him as his own and helps the others accept him as a main character in the rescue plans. I look forward to reading the rest of this series.

Well, this book caught me off guard! I wanted to read this because I am a huge mythology nut, and I love reading stories about that time frame, so I couldn’t wait to start reading this one. I have really mixed feelings as to how I feel about it after finishing it though. I do want to say, that this book ISN’T set in ancient times, which I was given the impression that it was. So the mention of internet and a microwave kinda threw me for a loop big time. But I was able to move past that because I was drawn into the story. I think that the twists that Ms. Storm added about the God’s needing to find their mates was really cool. I just wish it wasn’t as insta-love as it was. Even though you could tell that Hercules felt strongly about Micah, I couldn’t help but wonder at times if he really did love him, or if he was just mating him because of what was needed. I do think that Ms. Storm as a great start to the series, and that is the reason that this book gets a 4 star instead of 3, because I do want to read more and find out what happens next.

This is book one of the Twelve labors series. Hercules and Micah’s story, Hercules is a demigod on a quest to find one of the twelve keys that will free Zeus. Micah is a Panther shifter, living under an Alpha that has been abusing him and ruling the pack with an iron fist. We start the story with Olympus is an uproar; Aries and Hera have captured Zeus and taken over. We find out that the only way to set this all right is to discover the Twelve Keys, and certain Gods are given stones to help them start the quest. Hercules being the first, as he sets out on this journey, Clotho, one of the fates is helping him. As the stone leads him through a forest, he comes upon a small village and falls in insta-love, GFY to a guy tied to a pole that is about to be whipped. Hercules calls upon the other demigods, Gods, for help to release this guy, who we find out is Micah, and Hercules mate. Once Micah heals from his wounds, he also falls in love with Hercules but will it be an enough? I really wanted to love this book, but found it only okay. Too many characters, to modern, to unusual match, just didn't work for me. When reading about God’s, demigods and shifters and the the story was unfolding I was expecting more ancient times, then all the sudden, we are given a sentence that has a microwave in the kitchen. Just didn’t fit.  However, I did enjoy the back story of Hercules and the other God’s and demigods. I liked the quick one liner thrown out between them.   I was given this book for an honest review by Crystals many reviews

Its not bad persay…but its not that great either. At first I thought it was in ancient greece but then the dialet changes and slang is thrown in. Time seems to be unimportant in this book. We just jump right in after the preface, which honestly to me was the part of the book. No mentioning of towns, the year or even customs or full detail of characters, saved for the fates. They seem to share a body and change hair/eye color to go with each fate but she doesn't go into that. Like we're suppose to know that even though its the first book. Also it felt a bit rushed. Fight scenes weren't that detailed and she knida made a character mary(gary)-sueish. Seemed like they tried to add as much of the characters and give them all as much of a personality as posdible, but it feel really short. And there were times I felt like I was reading a fanfiction with how much the characters were like "you're mine! there is no other mate" or "give me this! tell me where it is now!". All in all, it was ok kind of. Not really worth the amount they're asking. Seems like a first attempt at writing so I'm not going to go too hard (only pointed out the things that really stuck out). As a writer myself, I know its hard, especially when its either your job or hobby with other things going on in your life. Hopefully they'll go back and revise before 2nd or 3rd edition at the latest. It has potentail to really be something great.
