War's Passion is book one in the Sons of War series by Lia Davis.
This is my first time reading Lia Davis and I have to say I enjoyed War's Passion enough to go out and pick up book two Ashes of War. The author delivers an interesting spin on mythology, Demi-gods & goddesses, the Fates, and much more. I enjoyed the world building and concept created to weave an intricate tail.
We are given lots of information, but in a way that you don't feel bogged done with to much at once. The story moves along quickly. The romance is an insta-attraction, once the leads meet. Markus knows right away once laying eyes on Gwendolyn what she is to him. Gwendolyn doesn't understand yet why she is drawn to him, the same type of creature that caused her parents deaths.
Markus I enjoyed. He's got the whole Alpha Male Leader vibe going for him, plus he's a sexy dragon. I'm a sucker for dragons. I have to say I wasn't very impressed with Gwen. She is running away and always scared. She's wimpy, but does get herself together by the end.
Gwen and Markus relationship felt forced. The believability wasn't their for me. Even with the soul mate thing happening. I think this had to do with Gwen. She was lacking as a heroine for me, but also her dragon issues where over the top; with her going into a panic attack whenever she sees a dragon. So, for her to get over it and fall in love within 2 days with Markus, just wasn't believable.
I loved the secondary characters. All the brothers and of course the two lady's, one that is Gwen's sister and Ash who is a spy for the gods. The way the author weaves them into the story and also set's up two more potential mate hook ups, if they can figure everything out, was very much enjoyed. These secondary characters are what made me decide to continue and pick up the next book. I really want to see what happens with them.
War's Passion delivers lots of action, adventure, intriguing characters, and sexy dragon brothers. This was a good read and a nice start to the series.
There was action, smoking chemistry and a love that unfolded beautifully in War's Passion. Gwen was a strong heroine who had been through an emotional hell. She faces her demons and deals with the aftereffects of the attack on her parents. She doesn't give up and is ready to train to fight the bad guy immediately.
I loved this book and can't wait for Ashes of War. War's Passion leaves off with a great beginning to that book!
Book #1: Sons of War Series
My Rating: 4½/5 stars
I think you all know I have a deep, deep love of all things dragon so coming across Lia Davis’s Sons of War series was sort of an embarrassing squeak moment. I’ve now read each of the books twice and can’t say I’m done with them. Here’s the lay of the land:
Gwen: Fifteen years ago, her parents were killed in an unprovoked attack by three men, one of which was able to shift into a large, black dragon. With high hopes for starting over, Gwen and her adopted sister, Elle move into a fixer-upper on the coast of Maine. Within just a few days, Gwen finds herself right back in the middle of her worst nightmare, surrounded by dragons. Unlike last time however, these dragons seem to be friendly.
Markus: ggggrrrrr!!! As the son of Ares, Markus and his brothers were literally born into violence. In the centuries since their birth, Markus and his brothers have been tasked by Zeus to watch over the Descendants, those half-mortal children whose other parent just happens to be a god or goddess. Meeting Gwen is the first time in centuries Markus has been glad of his assignment and if he is going to make her his mate, he’s going to have to get her to trust him.
Garrick: aka Gary to those who want to piss him off. Garrick is 100% batsh&t crazy and is hell bent on bringing down the Olympian deities and his brothers. Oh, yes, Markus and crew are Garrick’s brothers and Garrick will stop at nothing to see them all fall. Garrick’s crazy sort of happened over night when his mate, Sophia was taken from him. In that moment, Garrick became convinced of his brother’s betrayal and hatched a plan to kill them all. In order to do that, Garrick has to collect as many of the Descendants as he can, unlock their bound powers, and get them to do his evil bidding.
The Descendants: Across the world are children and adults just like Gwen, half-mortals with gifts that were bestowed upon them by their other, Olympian parent. The gift(s) each Descendant has is dependent upon the identity of their Olympian parent. In the last great war, the Olympian deities discovered their descendants with unbound powers posed a serious threat to their existence and so, the Descendants had their powers bound and Zeus forbid the deities from having any direct contact with their offspring. Most of the Descendants, Gwen included, know there is something different about them but don’t quite know the entire story. Garrick, being a Son of War does know the full story and desperately needs people like Gwen in order to pull off his ridiculously crazy plan.
The Bottom Line: Yeah, I love dragons to a disturbing degree and Lia Davis is only encouraging my obsession with her Sons of War series. Gwen is an interesting character and she becomes more so as she gains her powers but the real interest lies in the actual Sons of War. Markus and his brothers are all kinds of varied and angry, and hot. Though they are stick on Earth they have made the most of their time and become successful business men and protectors of their town. They have also spent their years on Earth looking for Garrick in order to stop his madness. As Gwen and Elle (and others) come into the Sons’ lives, and the Olympians are once again able to have direct contact with their descendants, the need to stop Garrick becomes critical. War’s Passion has loads of backstory, just the right amount of action and mayhem, some steamy naughty bits, and the promise of more awesomeness to come. For all intents and purposes, War’s Passion comes to a full and complete end but as you will see, the Sons of War story is far, far from over.
Gwen has been running for most of her life, trying to find someplace safe (her family
Was killed by dragons). Markus is a dragon shifter. He and his brothers are assigned by their father Aries to prevent a war between the gods and their brother Garrick (Garrick is gathering the descendants of the gods to form an army).
When she discovers what Markus is her first thought is to run. But if she wants to life her life, she must overcome her fear and be the person she's meant to be. A descendant of Aphrodite.
Markus is the perfect warrior. He shows no emotion in battle. That all changes when he meets Gwen. She brings out his protective streak. They need to work together to stop a war that could destroy the world.
