Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In a series inaugural from Bangs (One Bite Stand), the Gods of the Night are incarnated for the first time in 65 million years, summoned to protect humanity from an all-encompassing evil that is coming in 2012, at the end of the Mayan calendar. While currently incarnated as deadly, handsome men, they have the ability to assume their prior forms—those of gigantic dinosaurs. One of them, Ty Endeka, develops a powerful attraction to his driver, Kelly Maloy. She never expects to be drawn into this world of demons, vampires, werewolves and otherkin, but when she is, she handles it with aplomb, even when the Eleven's mysterious leader, Fin, tells her she has a crucial role to play in the coming fight. Bangs's skillful blend of vampirology, Mayan lore and extinct monoliths lays solid groundwork for the series—and almost makes it possible to wrap one's head around the idea of men with the souls of dinosaurs as sex objects.

Review

"It takes awhile to get used to placing this sort of character in the same sexy arena as wolves and vampires, but Bangs pulls it off with a deft hand and the right balance of menace and humor, weaving in Mayan prophecy for an unusual theme." —Booklist

"This is the beginning of an exciting new series. It has it all...action, steamy sex and even some humor. This is a stand-alone book, but one is left anxious for the next installment. This is a great book!" —Affaire de Coeur

 “Author Nina Bangs has outdone herself with her latest book…grab your copy of Eternal Pleasure today and see for yourself what I am talking about.” —Romance Reviews Today

"Eternal Pleasure is the first book in Nina Bang's new Gods of the Night series, and it's an excellent introduction into this paranormal world. This story was at once erotic, enticing, and thrilling, with equal parts paranormal romance and romantic suspense." —Fresh Fiction

ETERNAL PLEASURE by Nina Bangs introduces a new paranormal romance series based on a Mayan mythology spanning past and future. A slip in a carefully laid out plan draws a spunky heroine and an uber-alpha male into super-hero roles to fight battles to save humanity from forces invading everyday life. Breathtakingly intricate imagination, hot romance and humor make ETERNAL PLEASURE a top romance choice and downright reading fun!

The Mayan Calendar stops at December 21, 2012. What did the ancient Mayans know that we don't know today? An alliance of predators, the ultimate alpha fighting machines with their primal instincts and their deadly bodies as weapons have joined forces as The Eleven, in a battle to save humanity from the Nine and a force that seeks the destruction of humanity and the Earth. Fin has summoned together forces from 65 million years ago, forces now in human form. Now as the Gods of Night, they must hunt down the Nine and prevent the ultimate cataclysm, the dark force that wipes out dominant species. To make matters even worse, the Nine are not alone. They enlist the otherkin, vampires and werewolves as subordinates and subterfuge in this wicked plot to complicate the battle to kill off humans. The Eleven are an unlikely alliance --- ancient warriors, primal warriors with an instinct for the hunt, raw sex and killing. Although these men might be human now (Or maybe not? What amazing imagery Nina Bangs creates!), 65 million years of hunger for the thrill of the kill and mating is too long. Lock these alpha males together in one room, and what a mix! Primal testosterone in human bodies. Can they work together as humans to save humanity?

Kelly Maloy takes a job as a driver to pick up some extra money.

This is the first in a new series following eleven 'ultimate predators', beings that have been asleep for sixty-five million years and are only now reawakened to prevent destruction prophesied in an ancient Mayan prediction. These beings are far from human and although initially the reader isn't told what they are it's pretty easy to guess, particularly because of their names.

When Ty Endeka is awakened from his sleep in Ireland and taken to Houston to assist the godlike Fin to overcome the evil named Nine he struggles to keep his predatory nature contained. Especially when he meets his designated driver, Kelly Maloy, a music student who's trying to earn some extra money through being a driver. Kelly doesn't realise that she hasn't been picked randomly but that Fin has seen her in the future battle against Nine. As the supernatural world of evil, vampires, werewolves and other nonhumans is unfolded to Kelly she finds Ty is taking more and more of her attention - but is there any future between an ordinary girl such as her and a strange, predatory and ancient beast?

This story was a reasonable read with an interesting background - that of the ancient predators - although it wasn't always easy to be convinced by the story with these creatures. However the characterisation in this story was rather weak - events take place and the characters react to them but the reader is never drawn deeply into their world and their thoughts. The romance aspect was fairly unromantic and perfunctory and it wasn't entirely clear to me why either main character fell in love with the other. The large cast of characters wasn't too unwieldy, however, and there were some interesting people introduced.

Didn't care for this one, and didn't finish it. The premise just struck me as so poorly concieved. A group of men who posses the souls of dinosaurs (I really wish I was kidding) are given human bodies and set loose in order to defeat a group of beings intent on whiping out the human race in 2012.

I was actually willing to go along with the whole dinosaur thing, even the rediculous names (Ty for Tyrannasauras Rex, get it?) but just couldn't stomach the main characters and their overblown, poorly written personalities. Ty basically acts the alpha male, destroying and killing and thinking of sex. Jealous, emotionally stunted, but oh so gorgeous. Kelly, meanwhile, had great potential--she's a musician, in touch with her emotions, rational, etc. But then the supernatural stuff starts happening and she's...unphased. She just kind of rolls with it, doesn't once try seriously to get away, or have an emotional breakdown, or demand full disclosure on this new supernatural world she previously thought existed only in books. I mean, I know she's supposed to be tough but I find this reaction to be so unrealistic.

The instantly in love thing going on between Kelly and Ty only annoyed me further. His wanting her I can understand--he's a prehistoric beast, of course he'd want sex from a beautiful woman. Her attraction to him, fine. Afterall he is good looking and has some kind of do-me aura. But that they should form a whole emotional attatchment based on no more then that was irritatingly tacky. This is the first Nina Bangs I've attempted. I'm sorry to say it will likely be the last.
