Marked By Elisabeth Naughton

Marked (Eternal Guardians #1)

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Description:

THERON—Dark haired, duty bound and deceptively deadly. He’s the leader of the Argonauts, an elite group of guardians that defends the immortal realm from threats of the Underworld.

From the moment he walked into the club, Casey knew this guy was different. Men like that just didn’t exist in real life—silky shoulder-length hair, chest impossibly broad, and a predatory manner that just screamed dark and dangerous. He was looking for something. Her.
She was the one. She had the mark. Casey had to die so his kind could live, and it was Theron’s duty to bring her in. But even as a 200-year-old descendent of Hercules, he wasn’t strong enough to resist the pull in her fathomless eyes, to tear himself away from the heat of her body.

As war with the Underworld nears, someone will have to make the ultimate sacrifice.




Review

When Casey gets bumped by a tall drool worthy stranger where she works at a strip club; she doesn’t know that it is going to lead to her saving him from a pack of animals tearing him apart and her bringing him back to her house or the danger it puts her in. Casey doesn’t know that she is half Argolean, Theron who is an Argonaut, is ordered by the King of Argolea to bring Casey back to help heal his daughter, Isodora, who is dying just as Casey is due to a prophecy;

“This human-whom he hadn’t been able to stop thinking about for three long days-was the woman he’d been sent to find.
The king’s long-lost daughter.
The lone woman who would save his race.
The one he would lead into certain death.”

The prophecy states that the two of them must be reunited and that one of them will die; only the stronger of the two will survive. Theron and Casey’s connection grows and he believes her to be his One, he refuses to hand her over to the king to her death. I have to say, I was a little underwhelmed by this read, I was expecting so much more from this book. Theron took a little time to warm up to as a character, I find myself more interested in Nick and what he might have to offer in the future. Over all it was an okay read, a bit average but I will continue on with the series in future.
