Red Demon

A Gods of Midnight Novel, Book 3

100 years ago Aristos Petrakos and Juliana Tiades fell in love. But tragidy struck tearing them appart. Ari was sure that his shap-shifting abilities drove her to drownd herself, though nothing could be further from the truth. Now in moder-day America Ari is faced with Juliana again. Can he forgive her for leaving him? If she didn't kill herself, then what was responsible for her death?

I think that because I've not read any of the other books in this series, it took me a while to get into the story. Juliana's apparent ghostliness was a bit hard for me to connect with. I understood that her death was not what it seemed, but I just couldn't easily connect with her. About half way through the book I really started to sink into the story and became engrossed in the battle the Spartan warriors were trying to fight. I adored Ari from the beginning, he was very easy to desire. I also liked the results of his little energy spurts when he became agitated.

I felt that all of the characters were well thought out and well written. I loved reading about the Gods and Godesses that the Greeks followed, but Eros rather creeped me out and make me leary of entering any swimming pools. I believe that Ares fit into his character well, this book made me eager to brush up on Greek mythology.

I will definitely look into reading more about this series, as I did find this installment enjoyable.
