Gena Showalter, the New York Times bestselling author who brought you the Lords of the Underworld, introduces a scorching new paranormal romance series…Gods of War
Knox of Iviland, the most ruthless warrior in All War history, has spent his life fighting others to the death, winning new realms for his king. Now the stakes are higher than ever. If he prevails in the battle for Earth, his slave bands will be removed. Victory is his sole focus…until he meets her.
On an arctic getaway with her foster sister, street tough but vulnerable Vale London is shocked to stumble upon a cave filled with ancient gods waging epic combat. When she is inadvertently drawn into their war, she is forced to team up with an unlikely ally—the sexy god who makes her burn with desire.
Though Vale is his enemy, Knox is consumed with lust and a fierce need to protect her. But only one combatant can triumph, and he will have to choose: live for freedom, or die for love.
Launching the Gods of War epic fantasy romance series, Showalter (Everlife) beautifully blends seduction and suspense. Vale London and her foster sister, Nola, are on the trip of a lifetime to the Arctic Circle when they become stranded. They have shelter, but no food or guide. When they venture out in a desperate attempt to survive, they come across a strange cave filled with human beings encased in ice and thanks to global warming, that ice is melting. Knox and his fellow All War combatants have been in deep freeze for the past 1,400 years. All of them, conscripted by the rules of their various worlds, are locked in a fight to the death, and the winner's liege will claim ownership of Earth. Thawed out, Knox suddenly finds himself in a strange new place, and Vale discovers there's more to the world than she ever imagined. Despite an excess of exposition, sizzling sexual tension and fantastical action make the story satisfying, if exhausting, to read.
