The series involves the Argonauts (the Eternal Guardians), the Argoleans, the misos (who are mix of half argolean/half human), humans and the daimons, and don't forget those rascally Greek Gods who are always causing trouble.
Demetrius is a Guardian with one hell of an attitude problem; he is descended from Jason; he protects the humans and the people of Argolea; and he knows two things for sure: 1 Princess Isadora of the Argoleans is his one sole mate; and (2) he is hiding a very deep, very dark secret. Why be nice to his fellow Guardians? If they knew his secret, they'd turn on him. What about Isadora? There was no way he can get close to Isadora, no matter how much he wants to. If she knew him...knew about him... He spends two hundred years intimidating her, being mean to her, keeping her afraid of him. If she hates him, he can protect her, but not be tempted by her. Then Isadora is kidnapped, and after rescuing her, Demetrius is trapped with her and danger is all around them. He needs to keep her safe and close. Now he needs to fight the dangers outside, and the temptation inside himself.
A few months ago I read an interview with Elisabeth Naughton where she was talking about her upcoming book Tempted and about it's main character Demetrius.Read more ›
I've been looking forward to Isadora and Demetrius' book ever since I finished Entwined (book 2). Isadora intrigued me with her quiet, almost childlike disposition she displays to her father and the public while in private she is a very strong, very determined woman. Demetrius made me sit up and take notice when he so adamantly refused to wed Isadora when the king proposed the match, in Entwined. The dude would rather kill himself than wed her. Jeez, sure know how to break a woman's heart! I knew there had to be a good reason because while he's rough and gruff, he's not really an ass. Turns out Demetrius had a very good reason.
Princess Isadora, the only legitimate heir to the monarchy of Argolea, is to marry the Argonaut Zander. But at the last minute the king allows Zander to be with his soul mate Isadora's half-sister Callia. Which is good except Isadora can't enjoy her reprieve because she's been kidnapped. If anyone can survive kidnapping by crazy witches, it's Isadora. She has a great inner strength and intelligence that Naughton showcases through Isadora's words and actions. I liked how she doesn't back down to Demetrius even though he has to physically save her a few times. Thankfully, she's stubborn and ends up saving him too even though he doesn't think he's worth saving.
Demetrius is the biggest baddest Argonaut around. He really is the biggest, at almost 6'8 but baddest... Well, Zander wasn't exactly Mr. Light and Love but he has mellowed a little so we'll give Demetrius the title. Even with all his gruffness, I couldn't help but like him. He's suspicious of nearly everyone, especially Isadora, but he still protects her and gets jealous when he thinks she's been doing more than studying with Orpheus.Read more ›
The personal growth Isadora displayed within this story was impressive. It was done in little changes so I did not notice until I reached the end of the story and realized that the princess may look the same, but she was a completely different woman. It made me appreciate the character, and the author at the same time. All of Isadora's growth helped in the author's ultimate goal. You can tell she really thought out the direction she not only wanted to story to go in, but also the series and she used every paragraph within this story to reach that goal.
The relationship development was just as significant as the personal development of the main characters. I saw the dynamic of their relationship change, and each individual characters growth into who they were meant to be. Even some relationships with minor characters grew and developed within this story. In the end I had no doubt that everyone would live together and meet any future obstacles together as a unit.
While reading this story I sometimes forgot that this was part of a series, because the story stood on its own so well. This is something I appreciated since I had not read the previous stories. The story also drummed up enough interest in the other characters that it made me want to read the stories I had missed, and want to continue to read the future stories in the Eternal Guardian series.Read more ›
