Synopsis:

He is the keeper of Doubt and his entire world’s about to be rocked.

Bound by the demon of Doubt, Sabin unintentionally destroys even the most confident of lovers. So the immortal warrior spends his time on the battlefield instead of the bedroom, victory his only concern…until he meets Gwendolyn the Timid. One taste of the beautiful redhead, and he craves more.

Gwen, an immortal herself, always thought she’d fall for a kind human who wouldn’t rouse her darker side. But when Sabin frees her from prison, battling their enemies for the claim to Pandora’s box turns out to be nothing compared to the battle Sabin and Gwen will wage against love…

If only Paris and the Harpies had gotten along. But Promiscuity had taken one look at the beautiful women and deemed them “too much effort.”

I liked this book. It started out with a bang and I was hooked after that. We were introduced to some new characters while still getting to see some of the old ones. One thing I really like about this series is how little things in previous books can come back and play major roles later on. It is amazing how Gena Showalter consistently ties things together and how she does it so well.

I liked Gwen. She had major character development and I loved rooting for her. I liked watching her find her inner strength and learning to be confident in herself and her abilities. I liked getting to see her grow more confident and not let other people tell her what to do. She was in such a bad place to start this book so it is great to see where she ended up.

I liked Sabin. He also had major character development and I was pleasantly surprised where he ended up. He was so cutthroat and borderline heartless to start this book so to see him turn around was a small miracle in itself. I liked that Gwen made him a better person and how he admitted that the way he used to look at things was wrong. I appreciate the fact that he changed his outlook on things and grew confident in Gwen’s abilities to let her fight even though all he wanted to do was lock her up and keep her safe.

Overall, I enjoyed this book. I really enjoy all of the Greek Mythology references and love learning about new mythological races (like Gwen’s) that I knew nothing about previously. I love this series and while I won’t binge read them all at once, I will definitely continue.
