Dark paranormal romance. Three sisters and their fated mates, Gods of the Underworld, on a journey of love, redemption and war.

Asar, the Egyptian God of the Underworld, has been tortured and left soulless by a malevolent goddess, relegating him to consume the very thing he was commissioned to protect. Human souls. Now an empty shell of hatred, Asar vows to kill the goddess and anyone involved in her release, but fate crosses his path with a beautiful blonde huntress who has a soul too sweet to ignore.
Lilly, fearless commander of the Nehebkau huntresses, is the only thing standing in the way of the goddess’ undead army unleashing hell on earth. But Lilly has a secret—one she is willing to sell her soul to keep. If the Underworld god discovers her role in the dig that released the goddess, she will lose everything, including his heart.

***Kristin – #NerdGirlSoldier’d  Review***

I truly wish I could give this book more than five stars because it’s worth a lot more than that. I have never read anything dealing with Egyptian mythology before and this book introduced me to it in a way that was fun, enjoyable and magical. I love the story. It was well developed and thought out. The plot flows so well that when I finished, I was disappointed to be done. I love the depth that Ms. Murray went in explaining the myths as well as the details surrounding them.

The characters were just amazing. I loved Asar; he’s such a broody God that grows and changes throughout the book. He learns things not just about Lilly, but himself. Asar learns that sometimes it’s possible for light to survive in the dark if it’s given enough love and car. His feelings for Lilly are just beautiful and he helps her grow as well.

Lilly is just baddass. Seriously. I want to be her when I grow up. She can kick butt and take names, then can transform literally into a beautiful goddess. Lillly has difficult choices to make in this book but the strength that she shows when making them was phenomenal. I love that she struggled with who Asar is; I don’t think anyone would find it easy to fall in love with the God of the Underworld. Lilly shows so much growth that by the end of the book, I could see she found peace with who and what she is.

Go buy this book right now. It’s worth the read. I enjoyed it so much that I’ve picked up book two to read when I get a chance. I have to know what happens.
