There is nothing so funny as two of the Shields trying to cope in contemporary Texas. Between the scantiness of the swimwear on the women, the heat, and a lack of convenient horses it's almost more than they can bear. On top of these challenges, they have to find a certain woman, defeat the harpies, and quash the plans of the great evil for this installment of the series.
Roderick, along with Val, meet Elle who brings her own foibles and feistiness as a modern woman swept up in the turmoil of unimaginable events. The fast paced action mixed with tender emotions once again takes the reader on an adventure not soon to be forgotten.
Ms. Grant retains her use of vivid imagery to keep the reader involved in the story as the Shields and their ladies once again try to defeat the Great Evil that threatens to overwhelm them.
Greetings Dear Reader,
I was born an immortal prince on the realm of Thales. I lived the life of grandeur, revered and respected, but my one true love was fighting. I was given a special gift in my battle abilities and soon became known as Thales' finest warrior. But all that changed the day my brother died and an evil descended upon my realm. With Thales on the verge of ruin, I bound myself to The Shields to protect the realms from the evil that ravages them. But I have a dark secret that I must atone for. Then and only then can I return to Thales and face my family. My special battle skills and my immortality help to keep my goals in front of me. They have always been clear...
Elle makes me long for things I cannot have. Her innate goodness makes me want to grasp what she offers with both hands, but I know that we can never have what she seeks. Elle bears a mark that signals her one of a chosen few who were sent to Earth as infants. She and the others who bear the mark must be found and kept hidden from the ancient evil that seeks them, for they hold the key to the evil's ruination.
The only way to keep Elle safe is to keep her by my side, but can I resist the temptation to take her love?
Roderick of Thales
