Synopsis

Killing immortals is easy. Becoming one is hard. When three lovers (Ring, Waleska, and Risa) take a vacation after losing a fight with an elegant monster named Elizabeth, their time for healing is cut short by a new threat, and this time, innocent blood will spill. Reaching for the crown of Hell, Elizabeth gathers Archangels around her to fuel her power-mad ascent-but she has powerful enemies who will fight her every step of the way, including Delphine, the 2400 year old succubus hooker who knows that inside her beautiful body rests a very human soul. Joined by an honorable priest who finds himself in the middle of a war he never knew existed, and a demigod and his partner, the stage is set for another round in the battle to determine how much of Ring, Waleska, and Risa is still human, how tough their immortal side can be-and how far they are willing to go to protect the people they love from the reaches of a creature who would burn their world to ashes.

***Cianna – #NerdGirlSunshine’s  Review***
Outstanding, yet again. Terry Maggert really takes a lot of time to craft his engaging stories, and you can tell he really shares that excitement with his audio-book reader, Rebecca. I loved The Forest Bull, and was excited to enjoy the Mask of The Swan as well, and it blew me out of the water. This book is even better then the prequel. You know the characters now, and they are just so real and raw. None of them are perfect, they have flaws but they really believe in what they are doing, and it keeps them going. Elizabeth is a great villain. I really enjoyed the dynamic that she brought to this story, and the conflict that came up with the cast of characters. We first experience her in the prequel, but her growth, and the level of what’s at stake in this novel really makes it something really amazing to read. I like that the author chooses to really research in his book. He grounds everything in really solid believable facts and he really wants you to understand the characters and really believe this could be taking place right now, right in your neighborhood bar and you’d never know. I enjoyed the adventure, it had to on the edge of my seat in some places, and laughing out loud in others. I think enjoying the book in the audio version is highly recommended. You really get a strong sense for the characters because Rebecca does an awesome job really embodying each character and bringing them to life. Another great book for Maggert, and I look forward to hopefully seeing these characters in another bad-guy fighting scenario at some point! They’ve become on of my favorite evil fighting teams, and I think they are just so well crafted, you think of them after you’ve turned the book off :)
