The three fates had cursed Jade and her sisters.. Jade’s stepfather Xavior was King of the Trynid demons. Aiesa is Jade’s mom and Jade has went to her to help Jade deal with the curse the fates put on her and her sisters. Also Jade turned to Aiesa for the changes she was already going through. The sisters had to find the key or the family would pay the full price. The key was balance. Jade described what was going on in her as being seduced by something that was pure evil.Jade had started killing humans. Jade and her sister’s father was Helios who was a God. But the other Gods sent the Oneiroi on the girls - the Oneiroi were the dream Gods. The girls had been gifted the Eye - the magical amber Helios gave the girls to keep them safe while they slept. Jade could feel something coming but what was that something ? The prophecy stated Jade and her sisters were to kill the gods and Goddesses even though they were ½ Godess themselves. Roen is Jade’s Worr demon mate. Will he be able to save Jade? I liked this story a lot. It was really good, had plenty of action. It also talks of hope that evil won’t win in the case of jade and her sisters. This book had me from the first page until the last. I loved the characters in this story especially Jade and all the ups and downs she went through. I recommend. I received an ARC of this story for an honest review.
This book contained everything! It had a strong and fierce heroine, a fearless hero, it had action, romance, passion, gods, demons, underworld creatures, and the list goes on and on... Right from the very beginning I felt the excitement build up! Jade is overwhelmed by the power that starts coursing through her while painting! This has happened before, and it didn't turn out in a nice way! But, her powers don't stop there. She senses the ill intentions of a demon that has approached the King, her step-father demon, and attacks him, even if he is of her own species. But, what species is that? Jade is half demon and half goddess, and part of a set of quintuplets that were cursed by the Fates. A prophecy was cast upon them, that they are destined to kill the Gods. This curse set Zeus off into hunting them, through Oneiroi, who can track people through their dreams, and step into different realms. At the same time, Jade, after hundreds of years of being hunted, forced to loneliness and futile search of her mate, or any kind of romantic relationship for that matter, has started giving up her hopes! Until she stumbles upon a group of five Worr demons, who are fierce enough to be the only ones able to defeat Oneiroi! One of them is also destined to be her mate! But, nothing proves to be easy for them. One mistake brings her closer to Nightmare, the worst of the Oneiroi. Will Roen, her Worr mate, be able to save her now that he knows who she is, or is Jade's fate already sealed? This book contained so much action and so many events took place, that I couldn't manage to get my attention off of the story! The pages flew by so easily! I loved the majority of the characters, even the bad ones, with all their personalities' elements! Jade was a fierce heroine I gladly identified with, and Roen was oh-so-strong-and-handsome and focused on his quest to release Jade! Another aspect of this story I loved, was the fact that it referred to the Greek mythology, and very accurately, I might also add! Being Greek myself, I grew up with stories of the Olympian Gods and their adventures, so I found myself instantly drawn to both the plot and the characters! And, I loved every minute of it! All in all, 5 stars to an awesome story that had everything, from Olympian Gods, semi-gods and demons, to intensity, passion and so much action!
Jade is a demi-goddess - she has a god for a father and a demon for a mother. Not only that, but she has a curse from the Fates hanging over her and the Oneiroi hunting her. Jade isn't alone in this though, her four sisters share the curse and the circumstances. She can feel the darkness inside her growing and gaining control as the curse starts to awaken. She needs to find her 'balance' if she is in any way going to stop it from taking her over. This is a story that manages to be steamy whilst not actually describing anything in too much detail. There is lots of action as Nightmare - one of the Oneiroi - finds Jade and takes her to his realm. Fighting demons, zombies, poison-dart throwing monkeys, it's all in here. Smoothly written and with a fast but flowing pace, this is one to enjoy and from all indications, is the first of the series. Recommended. * I received this book from Goddess Fish Promotions in return for a fair and honest review. * Merissa Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!
A refreshing new take on beings from classical mythology 3.75 stars Hidden by Amy McKinley is an erotic paranormal romance that centers on one of five sister demigoddesses who have been targeted because they have been cursed by the Fates to be a threat to the gods. Jade is the first of them to have her beast awakening, seen through the effects of her paintings. She has to find her balance before the beast takes over completely, but she never suspects the major role a Worr demon named Roen will play in her struggle against the Oneiroi who seek to kill her. Finding a way to deal with Jade’s challenges and keep her alive long enough to explore the attraction between her and Roen is complicated, especially since there are so many beings who have a vested interest in the outcome, and not everyone wants the same result. This paranormal story is a fascinating twist on the concept of the Olympic gods and their relationships with various generations of offspring. It was startling to realize that this very sensual and intense relationship that is unfolding between two very strong personalities who each have remarkable talents reflects the events taking place between non-human beings. The author does a wonderful job of personifying many of the beings that are normally seen only in myths, and the story provides intriguing insights on the conflicts between the various factions. There are great twists, such as Jade having a ‘step-demon’ in her life who is wonderfully protective of all of the daughters that came with the female he married, her gift that allows her to effect changes, and the motivation for the Oneroi Nightmare’s actions. I think that this is theoretically the introductory tale to a series that features all five of the sisters, and as such, it is chock full of details that can be somewhat overwhelming, because there are so many conflicts and opposing factions that one almost needs a diagram to keep track of alliances and connections. The action gets a little jerky and chaotic because so many different facets are included and I suspect that things would be better if the story was a little longer so that events were able to unfold more sequentially. I am a little puzzled because it seems that two different pantheons are involved, as I thought that Helios and Apollo were the Greek and Latin names for the same deity but two different individuals are cited in this story, yet Helios is referred to as a god instead of a Titan. There are multiple strings dangling that hopefully will be addressed in future stories, and perhaps a brief index will also be included with subsequent tales to assist in keeping track of who each character is. This is a refreshingly novel look at some of the beings who populate traditional mythology and an entertaining introduction to a multiplicity of mysteries. A copy of this title was provided to me for review.
