Kill the beast.
Save your brother.
Win your freedom.
Falling in love with the cop trying arrest you?
To save his twin from death, Reign Nicolis will have to bargain with Goddess of the Dead, and once more become what he despises, El Mortem, The Scourge, a killer trained to show mercy to none. But he is haunted by those who have fallen beneath his blade. Their ghostly shapes dog his footsteps, relentless in their torture to make him suffer for what he was put on this earth to do two thousand years ago. Saving his twin ensures Reign’s enslavement to the Goddess. She may own his body, but never his heart.
Detective Alexis Lever’s career is in shambles. Her only chance at redemption is to discover what happened to the body of Daniel Nicolis. To do that she’ll have to thwart two men: Reign Nicolis and Roman Nicolis. Both belong in jail. But one has stolen her heart.
This is the second in the Descendants of Ra series. I really enjoyed the first, Eternity. See my review here. So, I was very excited for Everlasting to release.
The first thing I must say is Ms. Stephens has a talent for crafting a sentence. Her word choices are fabulous. I highlighted numerous lines in Everlasting. She’s a real talent and for that alone, her books are worth reading, but that’s not all she brings.
She brought back my favorite characters from Eternity, love that, and we get to know them even better. The tortured hero, Reign, is scary, brutal, and I’m totally enamored. Here’s one of his lines to his fabulous heroine, Alexis: “… The only peace I find is when I’m within one hundred feet of the one who balances my soul. You are that person.” <– yes, he’s swoon worthy.
Like the first in the series, Everlasting is weaved with Egyptian mythology. It’s another layer in this story and adds all kinds on interesting tidbits. The bad guys are frightening and the good guys are fantabulous. This is a story that will keep you turning the pages. I will be reading the next in this series.
I recommend Everlasting to all paranormal romance readers and give it a 5.0
Tmonique Stephens is definitely an author to watch. I’m definitely looking forward to her next book. You can find out more about her here: Website
