River, who started life as a slave, has great potential as a tragic leading man. But in focusing on River's struggle with his inner berserker instead of River's pain and feelings of unworthiness from being a lesser brethren - he's been cemented into the servant roll for eternity shifting in battle to a sword or dagger to be wielded by his 'master' the Spartan cadre's captain Ajax - Knight doesn't wring out all the poignant potential from River's story. The beserker thing does add to River's troubles - on returning to human form River is in thrall of emotions of violence or lust - but the isolation and feelings of unworthiness of eternal servanthood had a stronger sympathy factor. Knight does use River's berserker issues to stave off the consummation for River and Emma but doesn't really build the relationship between the pair. River falls immediately for Emma - which makes it feel like any woman would have done - Emma decides she's in love with River almost as quickly.Read more ›
Unknown by the one who grants this immortality and unknown by the Djinn who seek to destroy the warriors, and indeed all who possess similar personalities, these Greek bonded brothers possess magical powers that are enhanced when the long-lost Oracle makes them aware of their "real" power. But before any of this can happen, many internal and external battles must be fought, i.e. water demons, silver shadows, and so much more.
River Kassandros first meets Emily, a woman who has magical powers to hear nearby spirits. She is able to free River from his "blade" appearance but must find a way to deal with his super-energetic bouts that erupt as either severe violence or ravaging lust beyond what any human being can endure.
The other warriors meet with humans and spirit-like forms and each has his or her immortal foibles to conquer before they are finally reunited and able to complete their real mission, to destroy the one to whom they have promised servitude in order to keep their immortal status.
Red Kiss is a lusty, adventurous, frightening but exciting story that will thrill every reader fascinated by Greek mythology, the paranormal and contemporary, romping and riveting stories about robust sex.
Interesting contemporary treatment of classic Greek mythology!
