Marked By Hades by Reece Monroe

What They Say:

One choice away from eternity…

For 911 years, Gatekeeper companion Justin Bradford has denied the possibility of being mated to only one woman. He enjoys them all too much to settle down. So when he feels his mate’s Ahavah mark surface, his first instinct is to ignore it. But when he sees the leather-clad beauty in need of his help that’s easier said than done…

Yvonne wakes up naked on a cold park bench in a small town with no memory of who—or what—she is. All she knows is the gentle man who woke her was turned to dust when she touched him. And now the strange mark that appeared on her shoulder throbs in the presence of the raven-haired man now offering to help her…

As Justin and Yvonne navigate the mystery of her past, their bond grows, but the secrets they discover and the sacrifices that must be made could be enough to rip them apart for eternity

What I Say:

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.

I read this book and the 1st book in the series over a weekend.  I love them, as most fans if my blog know I prefer fantasy books and these were right up my street.

In this book we catch up with Theo and Sadie, but this is about Justin, Theo's brother and companion.  Justin was my favourite character in both books, there's plenty of fighting with the demons I hades, even Lucifer and Gabriel put in an appearance.

This series is building into a great series  of books, I like the fact that both books are around different characters with plenty of twists and turns.

What They Say:

He’s waited more than 900 years to love her…

Being the Gatekeeper to Hades is no small feat, and waiting almost a millennia to meet your mate is damn near impossible. But Theo Bradford’s mark has finally surfaced on his intended. Now all he has to do is find her and convince her to embrace her supernatural heritage.

Young genius, Sadie Nowland, has got life figured out. Graduating college at the age of eighteen and accepting a six-figure job is just what she needs to prove she’s made something of herself. But when a strange tattoo mysteriously appears on her shoulder and Theo starts talking about Mates, it catapults her neatly laid out life into chaos.

Somehow a vicious demon banished to Hades defies Theo’s vanquish and returns, setting his target on Sadie, and she is thrust into the volatile world of Shomrei warriors and a connection to Theo her brain can’t comprehend and her body can’t deny. That primal bond proves more imperative to their survival than either could have ever imagined—and just may be the key to the world’s survival.

What I Say:

I wasn't sure about this book at first but really did enjoy this and the 2nd book, Marked by Hades.

In this we meet Theo a 911 year old gatekeeper, he has always saved himself until he true love I marked, this turns out to be Sadie a fiesty 17 year college student.  The book follows the 2 as they get to know each other along with fighting demons intent on killing both Sadie and Theo.

The 2 characters I liked the most were Justin, Theo's brother and companion and Sadie's best friend Dasha, she is as fiesty as Sadie and very protective of her.

This is a solid start to a series of books, it gets you intrigued with the characters and leaving you wanting to ding out more.
