 photo eternal-blades_zps1d33b0d8.jpgTshering Snow never meant to fall hopelessly in love with her savior, the Ancient, known as Lance, but she did. He seems to care deeply for her, spending every available hour with her, but will he be able to give up his past and settle down with one woman? After all, he has the reputation of a playboy. 

Lance hates the personification he has created around himself. Afraid the others might not understand why; he has held back the truth from Gabriel and the other Guardians, he has waited for the right woman, the one Sekhmet prophesized so long ago. And now he has found her. When he is accused of fathering a child by both Gabriel and Tshering, how can he make them believe the child is not his, even if the boy is a spitting imagine of him?

After the women are attacked by Set’s Legions while relaxing on Jennifer’s new yacht, they come to the unanimous decision; they will train and join the Guardian forces. But that’s not as easy as it was meant to be. Old fashioned and hard headed, Gabriel is determined he will not having women fighting in their war.

When Tshering, Jennifer and Jessica are taken hostage by Set’s Legions all hell breaks loose on the Guardian’s compound. Lost without their mates, brother fights brother while they try save their women and put an end to the Legion’s terror. Will Sekhmet, the goddess they serve, step in and reveal the truth or will she leave them to find their own solutions to a never ending war as she has in the past? 

I received a copy of this book, from the Author V.S. Nelson, in exchange for an honest review.

The Review

After reading Book 1, “Eternal Lovers”(Read Review HERE) and Book 2, “Eternal Nights”(Read Review HERE), I knew I was in for another amazing ride.  What I didn’t know was how much more V.S. Nelson was going to draw me into her web called the Sekhment’s Guardians Series!

Tshering is one of the women that were rescued in “Eternal Nights”. We discovered then, that she wasn’t just your average human.  Now she’s using her gifts to help the Guardians, alongside the other females in the compound.

Lance has been so supportive, through everything.  Helping her learn to trust again and love again.  But the war between the Guardians and Set’s Legions has come knocking on their back door, more like Jennifer and Gabriel’s new yacht!

They were lucky that time, but luck can’t hold out forever, so the girls decide it’s time for them to become part of the Sekhmet’s army and fight alongside their men.  The men disagree. It then becomes a battle of the sexes.

Throughout this series so far, there hasn’t just been love and romance.  It’s been an amazing adventure of Guardians vs Legions, brother vs brother and everything in between.  New discoveries of species, Jennifer and Jessica’s past has been opened up to them and their bond as sisters has been strengthened.  All the women in the compound have found “sisters” within each other.

Now it’s up to them and the Guardians to save children that the legions members have been stealing from their mothers, to build a more loyal army. One of the rescued children is the spitting image of Lance.  He denies he’s the father, while everyone else doubts his word and the proof they see before their eyes. Will Tshering stand by Lance and accept a child that might be his? Or will she decide his denial and lies are too much to handle? And IF the child isn’t Lance’s, then whose could it possibly be?

My Final Thoughts: I wish I could tell you all the secrets these books hold within them, but to do so would spoil it for others.  This book ESPECIALLY is bringing to light, more and more things we only got a taste of in the other 2 books.

V.S. Nelson might have us believing that each story is about one couple, when it’s about ALL of them.  The characters we fell in love with and grew with are still major players.  In fact, we are learning quite quickly, V.S. Nelson believes in and practices the wise old saying…”There are strength in numbers”.  She’s bringing us strong women, Alpha males, new species, new gifts and new challenges. You’d think there would be an overload at one point in the story, but as a spider does to a web, V.S. Nelson does to her web of tales. Precision weaving. Drawing us in completely.

“Step into my story, said the author to her readers.
Open up my 5 Star books and read of my great leaders.
Read about my alpha men and their amazing mates.
Read about their loves and adventures, set in motion by the fates.”

I love this unique and action packed series.  There is never a dull moment and I can’t wait to read more of these amazing characters, their romances and their continuous fight to beat the odds in a war that has been ongoing for several years.
