After the battle in Asgard, Vervain Lavine just wants to celebrate the victory with her friends and family. The fact that those friends happen to be gods and the family is a bunch of werewolves and werelions only makes the victory that much sweeter. But the wound from Anubis' blade has scarred over and the cold beginning to spread from it is worrisome. Not to mention the link it's established between her and the Egyptian God of the Dead, who seems intent on making her pay for daring to attack him. Then there's Demeter, still out to get her, and Ares who may be holding a grudge for the loss of his lover and his left hand. Besides the gods who want her dead, there's the goddess who wants her help stopping a drug lord who also happens to be a god, feeding off overdoses and drug related murders. So it's a little hard for the Godhunter to celebrate, in fact she can barely sleep ever since the night that she was marked by Death.
Vervain is still trying to deal with the fact she has two sons, and her strange new magic. But, one day she's kidnapped and taken to a place where no one can get to her. She must live through a lot of horrible things and try to change her captors ways before it is too late.
This book was really good and I cried several times during it. I couldn't believe what happened to Vervain! It was completely surprising and so horrible. But, it made me admire her that much more.
Now, I can't wait to read more in this awesome series.
