From New York Times’ bestselling author Deidre Knight: An electrifying tale of seven immortal Spartan warriors, bound to protect humankind from the evils of gods and demons alike…and destined to find love.
After twenty-five hundred years as an immortal protector, fate is trying Ajax Petrakos’s patience. The lethal, but exquisite Greek warrior has been King Leonidas’s right-hand man since ancient Sparta—and before their immortal bargain with the god Ares. The millennia of epic fighting has taken a toll on Ajax, and he’s nearly given up on finding his prophesied love. Tasked with a mission in Savannah, Georgia, he hardly expects the tidewater town to shelter his destined mate.Shay Angel has inherited her family’s “sight”, the ability to see demons and other creatures of the night. If you can call nearly losing the family home, being bloodied every night, and having a pack of demons out for your life an inheritance. As the first female demon-hunter in the Angel family, she quietly strives to unlock the secrets she knows her two brothers have been keeping from her. But their over-protectiveness might just be enough to put her in more danger than they could ever anticipate when she comes face to face with an ancient winged warrior named Ajax.When Ajax and Shay meet, their attraction is instant—and intense. But their time together is threatened by the demons that continue to stalk the Savannah streets—demons who seek only one objective: to consume humanity. Together, the fated lovers must solve an unavoidable prophecy, one that could mean the end of them if they don’t act quickly; a prophecy that holds a life-shattering secret all its own.
