Now I know you are all wondering what this spell is that Atlanta is casting. Don’t worry I will tell you. She is casting a fertility spell on Isadora. This is all so that Atlanta can create the her own chosen one. Before the Argonauts can get to her in time the spell is cast and Atlanta sends both Isadora and Demetrius to their own private island. This island ends up being where all the mythical creatures have been sent too. In order to survive they have to work together. Will they manage to get along or will they kill each other? If they do get along can Demetrius manage to keep from fulfilling Atlanta’s wish?
* Loved how we get to see the real Isadora. She was quiet and shy in the first book. You see her grow a little in the second book, but this one you get to see her shine.
* Demetrius reminded me of Zsadist from the BDB series. Dark past, scars from abuse, and the whole don’t fuck with me attitude to tie it all together. We do however learn that Demetrius is more than just an Argonaut. He has some deep dark secrets that must be overcome for him to give himself completely to Isadora.
* I think Orpheus became my new favorite character. His love and concern for not only Isadora but his brother was nice to see. Plus he is quite funny throughout all the books so far.
* I thought that Isadora and Demetrius’s story felt a little rushed and topsy turvy. Since this one felt like Lover Awakened by J.R. Ward I could not give it more than 4 stars esp. since Lover Awakened is my favorite of the BDB series.
Overall I really enjoyed this book and would recommend reading it. I thought there was plenty of surprises to keep me guessing mixed with hot & steamy scenes.
