Victoria Damone is the daughter of the Black Dragon God, Jarel, and the goddess of magic and witchcraft, Hecate. Quick tempered and impatient, she strikes fear into the hearts of the rogue creatures rebelling against her father as well as the warlocks, servants of Prince of Darkness, Lucifer.
Ares, the god of war, is often misunderstood. Known only as a brutal god with an insatiable appetite for blood and destruction, as well as passing flings, the son of Zeus and Hera has spent most of his time defending Olympus from any and every threat.
Now the two meet and must combine forces. The Titan King, Cronus, has been resurrected by Lucifer and is quickly resurrecting his brethren to launch war against Zeus and all that stand with him. Not only this, but he's even joined forces with the legendary beast Typhon, the only creature to ever come close to toppling the Olympian god king. As the gods prepare for an unavoidable war, Victoria must hunt one of the most powerful and cunning warlocks to serve under the Prince of Darkness and simultaneously train her nephew Brandon in her craft. Her pride demands that she do this alone, but Ares is not a god to be denied. Ares clearly has his eyes on Victoria, but can she trust the notoriously wild and unpredictable god's intentions?

I really enjoyed the additions of Desdemona and Lucifer to the book. Really powerful antagonists to balance out the primary and secondary protagonists. The same can be said for Cronus, now that his resurrection has been completed. I look forward to seeing the roles he plays in the battle for the universe down the line. Also, the main protagonist Victoria was very believable: powerful; being that she's the flesh and blood of the Goddess of all that is Magickal, but not without flaws: her disdain for the god Ares and her lack of patience. In Shevat, I must say that her headstrong attitude worked against her in the battle with Lucifer, despite wielding Hecate's power. And I would like to admit that I was impressed with the forms that the twins received and all their power. I could've guessed before I read further into the book that Demun would want to rule over the realm that formerly belongs to Desdemona. But I didn't expect Brandon to become the new primordial god of all things dark. That was a curveball. Overall, I give this book five out of five stars for the action and the perfectly bloomed romance between the war god and Victoria.
