Book Description

Book one of Twilight of the Gods

Private investigator Grace tracks a kidnapped child to middle-of-nowhere Iowa. Encountering a strange creature she knows can't be a local animal, she doesn't need her psychic abilities to figure out the sleepy town is not what it seems. When she meets the intriguing Aiden, she's plunged into a world of Norse gods and fire demons where the Wild Hunt still rides the night.

Aiden needs Grace's help to cross the portal between worlds and rescue his daughter. Grace is unlike any woman he's ever met. He's drawn to her courage, distressed by her vulnerability and doubtful of her motives. But he knows that her visions are the key to defeating the enemy and bringing everyone home alive.

Grace wants a future with Aiden, even if it means she'll never have a normal life. When a test run to the portal takes a terrifying turn, they must learn to finally trust each other or Aiden's daughter, and their chance at love, will be lost forever...

PI Grace uses her 'finding' talent to 'sense' the location of children who have gone missing. On a hunt for a missing child, a close encounter between her car and a weird beast on a country road lands PI Grace in the town of Ragnarok before she solves her first case Grace's psychic senses tell her that her sexy rescuer Aiden's 'dead' daughter is still alive but for the first time ever she can't tell exactly 'where'

I read Witch Bound the second book in this series a while back and really liked and I am enjoyed this one every bit as much as the first for pretty much the same reasons. Like Witch bound both of the leads Grace, who has issues from the lack of family connections, and Aiden, who is buried under his responsibilities to the extended 'family of his clan are both great characters and also there are standouts in the supporting cast (who happen to play significant roles in Witch Bound). Additionally I liked the touch of Norse myth in the 'world' of this series.

Evene though there a fair number of smexy times in Demon Crossings, there is enough interesting elements in Grace's discovery of Aiden's hidden world along with Aiden and Grace's issues to balance out the steam. And Aiden's dilemma of needing to 'use' Grace to find his daughter even though it goes against his sense of honor to put Grace in danger and presents a conflict of interest as they succumb to their mutual attraction, means that there was plenty for them to overcome when there seems like there is no future for them even if Grace does survive this hunt

So I liked Demon Crossings (Twilight of the Gods) as much as I liked (Twilight of the Gods) (which is surprising because Fen was such a great leading man in the second book) and I wish that the third book was out already-after seeing the a bit more of a character here who is hopefully the lead in the third book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too Contained For Me May 18, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
She should have been sunning herself on a beach in Hawaii, enjoying a much-needed vacation. Instead she's driving down a dark, nowhere road in the middle of Iowa, surrounded by cornfields, and about as far removed from sun, fun, and Mai Tais as she could get. Private investigator by trade, it's Grace's psychic gift that made her cave for her friend Mike, a detective with the St. Louis police department. He begged her to take a look at one last picture before she left. So she did. And after the startling intensity of the connection she felt for missing Maia Olson, she's now following the persistent pull of her gift as she tracks the child down. In Iowa.

Grace is a bit unsettled by the smack of huge bugs against the windshield, and the absence of anything resembling civilization is a little disconcerting, but it's the massive, black shape that hurtles out of the night in front of her car that shocks her into swerving off the road and into a ditch. And that's just the beginning of disturbing, freaky things Grace is going to experience, see, and learn after she's rescued by a man named Aiden and drawn into a world of Norse gods and fire demons.

She will be introduced to a heritage she can hardly imagine and meet her destiny in a town named Ragnarok.

Aiden is Odin of his clan, and it's his duty to lead the hunt that guards the portal between this dimension and Asgard. He lost his wife to fate, but his daughter was taken from him a year ago, snatched across the portal by fire demons during a flare. He doesn't know if she still lives. He knows he has no chance of finding her on the other side. Until, that is, he rescues Grace and realizes she is of his people, and a gifted seer and tracker.

The risk is phenominal. Grace may not even survive a crossing to Asgard.

5.0 out of 5 stars A unique story, all its own! January 5, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Demon Crossings is a unique story that incorporates Norse mythology. I am close to clueless when it comes to Norse myth but I found myself drawn into world of Ragnarök and Odin and other names I'll not attempt to pronounce.

Grace's past has taught her to trust ans relay on no one but what happens when someone like Aiden breaks those barriers? Aiden is the leader of his groups hunt. They live to protect the portals leading into the human world from demon creatures. Aiden is has earned the respect given but being the leader comes with the responsibility of all. When Grace shows up and proves to have the gifts needed to help him rescue his daughter, is he willing to risk all? Grace is not a damsel, though she admits to playing the role when called for, she is something more. Abandoned and rejected at an early age, her childhood is a nightmare. But with those nightmares brings forth her drive to ensure other children are not harmed like her. Honorable traits and a heart in need of love.... Grace is a lovely character to read and Aiden's strength is admirable.

All in all, Eleri Stone has written another fantastic story with fierce yet vulnerable characters. I look forward to continuing the journey in the world of Demon Crossings.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good start to a series June 19, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
3.5 out of 5 Stars; Grace is on an assignment to find a girl who has been kidnapped. On her way to find the child, she hits something with her car. She is rescued by Aiden.
Did I feel connected to the characters: I really liked Grace and connected with her immediately. She has a gift where she can sense (psychic ability) where a lost child can be found. She has been always thought of as strange because of her gift so she has tried to hide it since she could remember, but she finds this town where her gift is not so strange.

Grace admits her weakness when it comes to people. It made me sad. She appeared so strong, but yet she felt so weak inside.

"Give her a little bit of kindness and she is lost. She would hand herself over to a person, imagine all sorts of crazy things. Like she was in love, or that she was loved."

I love that honesty in a character. That is why I did not want anyone to take advantage of her. When Aiden came into her life, I struggled at first. I did not want Aiden to take advantage of Grace's kind heart.

Pace of the story: Okay.

Positives: The author developed great characters.

Negative: Some of the dialogue dragged for me. At times, I felt like there was a disconnection with Aiden and Grace. The story was there, but some scenes could have been illuminated. However when the story got to 75%, I could not stop reading.

Do I recommend? Yes this was a great paranormal story about a small town that carried its own secrets. I can see the potential in the series.

Bottom line: I hope there is more of Vanir in the next book.

Book Format Read: A copy was provided in exchange for an honest review. Thank you.
