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 soul mate. But with eternity stretching before him, he also can’t fathom spending his life without the one woman who makes him feel most alive. Perhaps he’s found his weakness, after all…
Entwined is the second book in the Eternal Guardian series. I have really learned to love this author, and the theme to this series has been such fun to explore. Entwined is the story about Zander and Callia. Entwined is a audiobook, and the narrator is Elizabeth Wiley, who has become a favorite of mine. After having read two other books in the series, I have fallen in love with this author. From the previous book we see Callia, who is the king’s healer. Entwined is her story along with Zander. We don’t see too much of him in the previous book, so it was good to see way more in depth of Zander. This story, starts off with the King demanding that a Argenaut marry his daughter Isadora. At first he demands that it be Dimitri, but then Zander steps in when Dimitri refuses. Zander believes himself to be immortal, unable to die. So he figures he only has five hundred years to lose, unlike the others, he has lived long enough to know their fathers and grandfathers. Even knowing he has a lifemate, believing that they have no future. But when Zander goes on a mission to the mortal world, he is injured trying to save half breeds, and Callia is then brought to him to heal him. Thus begins Zander and Callia starting out on a adventure where misunderstandings threaten their future, but when danger escalates with the demons, Zander and Callia will have to learn to trust each other once again if they want to survive.
Entwined was a thrilling installment of the Eternal Guardians. There is actually quite a bit that goes on in this story. Some of which I don’t want to give away, so I don’t spoil the book for those that haven’t read it yet. This couple has serious trust issues, probably due to lack of communication and betrayal of those they trust the most. Zander and Callia have been separated even knowing they are destined for each other. I do wish that there had been some flashbacks in this story, to understand their relationship from the past a bit more deeper. But as the plot progresses, you get enough to put everything together. We get to see more of the Guardians, Isadora, and the half breeds. Atlanta-the queen of the demons, rears her ugly head once again, and we see more of her cruelty. Then we see a new character Max (who was my favorite). Those of you who have read Entwined, definitely understand I would think. Charming and sweet, and I was totally cheering for him all the way. From the beginning to end this story was enriched with emotion, passion and zest.
Overall a suspenseful story that takes you away in passion and adventure, enough to blow your mind away. A phenomenal romance that will bring a few tears to your eye, a story to pull at your heart strings, and a book to be sealed up into the memory of the reader.ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL!!
