ZANDER-The most feared of all the Eternal Guardians. It's rumored he can't be killed, and he always fights like he has nothing to lose. But as a descendant of the famed hero Achilles, he's got to have a vulnerability.....somewhere.
Forces of daemons are gathering and have broken through the barriers of the Underworld. Now more than ever the Eternal Guardians are needed to protect both their own realm and the human world. Zander can't afford to think about what might have been with the bewitching physician he once regarded as his soulmate. But with eternity stretching before him, he also can't fathom spending his life without theone woman who makes him feel most alive. Perhaps he's found his weakness, after all........
I'm sure that an eternity alone would be its own hell, especially if you've turned your back on the woman you love and your job is just losing its appeal. Zander feels this all too well. Being a part of the elite band of warriors known as the Eternal Guardians used to be all he needed. Then when he met Callia, the hole he never noticed before, began to fill. For a short while the world was perfect. But sadly, nothing lasts forever. These two soul mates are torn apart by misunderstandings, betrayals, and other people's agendas. All the necessary elements for a good story. The king of their dimension is dying and wants to wed his only pure breed daughter to one of his elite guardians. His first choice, the leader of his band of warriors, was snatched up by his half-breed daughter. His second choice flatly refuses to marry her and lets it be known that banishment would be preferable. Zander sees this as his chance to have something to live for. So, he volunteers. Even though he has no love or desire for the princess, he hopes to find meaning in helping her rule. Callia is crushed, even though her own arranged marriage is lurking closer. These two are thrust together to help stop an encroaching war that would start on earth and end up taking over all the relems. They end up, after a few blunders, rekindling the spark that set them ablaze years earlier. Together they discover the truth of their forced separation and find a delightful surprise that gives both of them back their will to live. I love books with any kind of Greek background or mythology and it is found in stores in this book. It is a thoroughly enjoyable read!
