Mi piace!
Non che brilli particolarmente per l'azione ed i compi di scena ma, se non altro, è orginale!
L'idea del libro mi piace moltissimo anche se, per dirla tutta, Grace avrebbe potuto anche capirlo che l'amica le avrebbe tirato qualche tiro mancino, andiamo!
Comunque, a parte questo, ripeto che l'idea del libro e dello schiavo di sesso mi piace molto.
Come mi è piaciuta la reazione di Grace (anche se io prima avrei ehm.. testato... se era vero o no *_*) che non ci pensa nemmeno ad usarlo e lo fa dannare come poche. Brava ragazza, fagliela sudare!

Tutta la prima metà del libro verte sul tentativo di far cedere Grace da parte dei semidio (questo lo capiremo solo dopo...) tanto che, inialmente, per quanto scritto bene ed interessante il lettore è portato a credere che non sia altro che una storiella d'amore dall'happy end inevitabile e di dubbio spessore.

Le cose non sono mai quelle sembrano e, da metà libro, è chiaro anche al lettore.

Julian è un protagonista veramente ben congeniato. Ha spessore, è intrigante, ha un passato affascinante e tremendo ed è caratterizzato al meglio. Ovviamente il tutto si sposa magnificamente con la ritrosia di Grace Alexander!

L'introduzione, da parte della Kenyon, dell'aspetto mitologico e dei Dei dell'antica Grecia ha dato un tocco di orginalità assolutamente appetitosa in questo periodo fatto solo di vampiretti dai dentini spuntati o da mannari spelacchiati.

In un certo senso questo libro, come ho scoperto a fine lettura, è una sorta di prequel dell'intera saga Dark Hunters ma questo non lo sminuisce affatto, anzi, sarà proprio la fine (tutt'altro che scontata!) ha dimostrarci quante sorprese potrà regalarci la bravura indiscussa di Sherrilyn Kenyon.

Promosso! E se a farlo è una lettrice che NON ha mai amato harmony e romance fine a sè stessi, questo non potrà che dimostrare quanto sia buono il lavoro della Kenyon. ( )

Review originally posted on Goodreads.

Was curious about the Dark Hunter series after reading Acheron and Styxx because I love them both! I'm not disappointed so far~

I started this book at 11 PM and finished it at 3 AM. It was good, easy read. ( )

3.5 Stars

A cute story with an imaginative take on the pettiness of the Gods in Greek/Roman mythology.

The dialogue is, however, juvenile and the angst felt by the romantic leads becomes somewhat repetitive as the book progresses. ( )

Three stars is the best I can do. The great reviews that the series has earned is what keeps me going. I really, really hope I never had to put 3 stars for another book of this series! ( )

It's been awhile since I read this one, but I remember not being crazy about it. It was cute with some real humor, but that was the top redemption. Otherwise it got a bit obnoxious and had unrealistic romance. ( )

Epigraph
Dedication
As always, this is for my wonderful family who supports me unreservedly.
For Nancy Yost, who believed in an idea that was completely different, and for all the faith you had, and encouragement you gave.
Jennifer Enderlin and Kim Cardascia for sharing my vision, and allowing me to explore the outer reaches of my imagination.
For my friends who are always there to share my laughter and my pain: Rickey Mallory, Celeste Bradley, Cheryl Lewellyn , Valerie Walton, Diana Hillock, Rebecca Baum, and Kim Jones (thanks for the psychologist insights). And for Lisa Rich, who was the original Moon Mistress.
And most of all, to you, the reader, for wanting to take a stroll with me on the Wild Side, where with a little faith, imagination, and love, all things are possible.
Hugs to all!

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312979975, Mass Market Paperback)

Dear Reader,

Being trapped in a bedroom with a woman is a grand thing. Being trapped in hundreds of bedrooms over two thousand years isn't. And being cursed into a book as a love-slave for eternity can ruin even a Spartan warrior's day.

As a love-slave, I know everything about women. How to touch them, how to savor them, and most of all, how to pleasure them. But when I was summoned to fulfill Grace Alexander's sexual fantasies, I found the first woman in history who saw me as a man with a tormented past. She alone bothered to take me out of the bedroom and onto the world. She taught me to love again.

But I was not born to love. I was cursed to walk eternity alone. As a general, I had long ago accepted my sentence. Yet now I have found Grace--the one thing my wounded heart cannot survive without. Sure, love can heal all wounds, but can it break a two-thousand-year-old curse?

Julian of Macedon
