If you love Mythology this is the set for you.

1. Braving Fate - 4 stars

The great thing about this book is that there is a whole new range of supernaturals, something beyond your regular werewolves & vampires. Covering a variety of mythological characters we have the greek underworld, harpies, celtic goddesses, soulceresses who gain their power from the souls of beings and walk the aether between dimensions, Jinns, millennia old immortal guardians and reincarnated souls to name a few. A new series to whet the appetites of all supernatural junkies.

2. Soulceress - 4 stars

Yes! Warren has finally given in to Esha. Why the heck did he take so long. Didn't he realize he's way better off with her in his life. Both characters are mistrustful and stubborn as mules, so alike and yet so different. They are loggerheads with each other until they realize that they were meant to be together. Though there are references to characters in the first book, they are merely supportive in nature. Esha and Warren have this book all to themselves so the story is independent of the first book and can be read as a standalone.

3. Rogue Soul - 4 stars

Andrasta, Celtic goddess of victory and Camulos, Celtic god of war. Finally we see what all the fuss is about, since this conflict has been referred to from the first book. Turns out there was never any conflict between them. They were both victims of circumstance, their fates in the hands of every puppeteer but themselves. The reincarnation theme is once again in play but the plot is very different from book 1 where the female lead was also reincarnated to fulfill her fate.

Mythology has always been of interest to me but this series is my first insight into Celtic mythology. I especially enjoyed reading the afterword, which was quite informative on the subject.

4. Stolen Fate - 4 stars

Of the 4 books in this series, I think this one is my favorite. Fiona and Ian's attraction is instant, each recognizing kinship in the other, whereas the leads in the other 3 books all had history together. Even though they are the same species, their backgrounds and upbringing are poles apart and they come together for their own singular purposes, eventually their focus becomes of one mind, each willing to sacrifice themselves for the other. Linsey Hall's writing too has progressed and matured with each release, this being her debut series.

5. Fate Undone - 4 stars

As all you Thor addicts know, Loki is Thor's nemesis, evil, conniving, manipulative and vengeful. But Linsey Hall's Loki is the complete opposite, Sure he's a bit self absorbed, even a little self righteous, but his heart is in the right place. He is the god who must restore balance to the havoc caused by the arrogance of the other gods, He is the god who must teach the others a lesson in humility. So when one of his "lessons" goes awry and he is sentenced to be punished for eternity, he finds himself being whisked away to safety by Sigyn, the woman he loves, the woman who has now brought the wrath of the gods, including her own mother's, upon her head. Now they have been banished from Asgard and must face an eternity on Midgard, away from each other because Loki has turned Sigyn away, admonishing her for her foolishness.

Centuries later, in spite of new names and new identities, their paths cross once again and feelings once denied rise to the surface. This time he is not letting her go but first he must fulfill his quest otherwise all the gods including Sigyn who is a demigod, will be lost forever.

Thank you to the author for allowing me to read and review this wonderful collection of paranormal romances.

Braving Fate (1)

I have to say this book drew me in right from the beginning and set up future books of the series with seamless ease throughout the story. I believe this author has a hook in her Mythean Arcana that is located in Ediburgh and headquartered at the Mythean University.

With the reincarnation of an ancient female warrior, an immortal Mythean guardian, friends in need, puzzles to be untangled, plenty of historical references, ancient gods and goddesses, paranormal individuals with abilities I haven’t seen in books before and even more…this is a book with everything. Everything also includes love that is, ancient, new, hinted at for future books and often steamy.

This is a book I would recommend to anyone that would like a well written story with some Celtic, Roman and mythological mention with the interpretation and creativity brought to them by an interesting new to me author. I am definitely interested in reading more of this series!

Oh…and the cat in the story…Chairman Meow…what a special creature he and his human are!

Soulceress (2)

I thoroughly enjoyed book one and liked book two almost as much. Both are stand alone novels with a common link.

This is the story of Esha and Warren. One has been without a soul for centuries and the other finds power from stealing a bit of energy from the souls she is near. There is powerful attraction between Esha and Warren and plenty of steam to read about. There are mysteries to unravel, evil to deal with and a love story that unwinds throughout the process of the story’s unfolding. The story takes place in real and not quite so real places, too. This is a story for anyone who enjoys paranormal romances with strong characters.

Rogue Soul (3)

Ana and Cam have history…a LONG time ago one took the seat of the other in the pantheon of Celtic gods. Two thousand years later one seeks out the other - tired of the job and life she was forced to live. Will they find a solution that will see them both happy in the end and if so, how will it all come to pass? This story has druids and nymphs and witches and immortals and all you might expect and them some in a paranormal story such as this…and as book three in the Mythaean Arcana series.

Stolen Fate (4)

Book four in the Mythean Arcana is a bit shorter but no less exciting. Ian, an immortal is taken from prison by Fiona to help find The Book of Worlds. Having been in prison for a century Ian is more than ready to be out and Fiona has a mission to accomplish that can only be achieved with Ian’s help. The story is intense with romance, fighting, good and evil and a seemingly not so likely happily ever after. ( )
