Damon’s hope for more comes in the form of the Sirens’ newest recruit. Elysia is unlike any trainee he’s ever met. Not only can she remember where she came from—an ability the Sirens block—but she has an instant connection to Damon, one he’s never felt and doesn’t understand. Soon Damon is willing to do anything to have Elysia. Even risk the wrath of the gods to break her out of Olympus so he can keep her for himself.
But Damon’s past isn’t a mystery to everyone. Evil forces are at work beneath the surface, and before long, Damon realizes that the connection he shares with Elysia isn’t a random coincidence. His fate—and the darkness it brings—was cemented long ago. And when it is finally revealed, no one will be safe.
My Review: In Awakened the Gods always has to control everything even other’s fate. Now they set their sights on Elysia not her specifically but her parents. But you know how it goes. To control someone, you get them through the ones they love. And there is nothing that a parent loves more than a child. So …they have chosen her to be a Siren. To become a Siren, she must undergo seven challenges and then train years on Olympus. However, that wasn’t the only reason the Gods wanted Elysia they wanted something her mother has in her possession and they will stop at nothing to get it.
Let me say that if this would be your first book by Naughton it would be a great place to start, but if you want the full effect of this series begin with Marked. Even though it has been years since Naughton wrote an Eternal Guardians the book stayed true to form and it was nice to visit with old characters.
