Carissa works for the police and one day she finds herself in a warehouse at the wrong time and her partner and her are attacked by demons. Xen is a vampire that has spent his years protecting humans from a distance. But when he sees Carissa he realizes that she is his mate. Although he tries to take Carissa’s memories of the warehouse, she still remembers bits and pieces. Then she learns that she is a demi-god. Carissa needs to learn how to use her abilities since a rouge vampire wants to sacrifice her to become a god. This book is heavy on Greek everything, especially words. Just so you know, there is a glossary at the end. Carissa is a strong and independent person but she can make huge mistakes that risk her life. I did like Xen, he is not the typical brooding, possessive male lead that you get in most paranormal stories. This is a good, paranormal romance with Greek gods and the usual paranormal characters. The world building was wonderful and drew me in. There is a cliffhanger ending that will leave you wanting the next book. I received Phantasma for free from Sage’s Blog Tours in exchange for an honest review.
High impact action. Adrenaline filled drama. Paranormal romance with gods and demons and more. Mythology comes to the forefront. What you thought you were taught in school has a new spin with well developed character and a vivid world built around them. Carissa is a demi-god with no knowledge of such. She had dedicated her life to protect and serve her fellow mankind. Then one day she finds this all has changed. I found her to be well rounded, strong, independent, and unwilling to take a backseat when something needs to be done. She was my hero. Xen the immortal protector of humankind from an unknown, unseen enemy. For thousands of years from afar, until it was all in the face of the people they were protecting. Xen was strong, male, protective, not overbearing, not over-Me. He was dark but not over the top. He was complicated at points. He was male all the time. This ride through mythology and paranormal has a bit of the edge that has the ground work for an enduring series moving forward. I could compare this works to the beauty, complexity, sensuality, engrossing experience of one of my favorite paranormal romance series DarkHunters from Sherrilyn Kenyon. Most certainly looking forward to the next book in this series. This was an awesome offering from this debut author. Efthalia this was a wonderful introduction to your vision of paranormal/mythological romance. **This ARC was provided via Bewitching Book Tours in exchange for an honest review.**
