I want to say up-front that while I really enjoyed this book, there are a few plot holes, and some other things that I am sure will bug some readers.

For me, I really liked the book. I liked the first one a lot too, though. The author sounds like she wants to be the next Sherrilyn Kenyon mixed with JR Ward-hey who doesn't? (not in a rip-off kind of way, but in a really cool way).

I really liked our heroine Callia, and I did like Zander, however for what he did, I don't think he groveled enough.(I
5 Fantastic stars!

He was once in love but was betrayed by his soul mate and now lives with the bitter aftertaste of that affair. Callia is the King's healer. She has tried to distance herself from Zander, her first love, but fate keeps throwing them together. Now faced with a common enemy and a hunt for a loved one, can they put aside the past to make a future toge

OMFG, this book was simply AMAZING! I don’t know of any other adjectives that can accurately describe this story. Zander & Callia fell in love and discovered that they were soul mates 10 yrs ago. Then they were torn apart by deception, lies & betrayal -this book is about their way back to each other & to finally love again.

This was such an emotional book. At the beginning both Zander & Callia are filled with such anger & bitterness towards each other BUT you also see the remn

Plan on reading more by the author: Yep. The story is interesting. I'm not ready to let go.

Quickie Review:
Entwined was a good continuation of the Eternal Guardians series and I loved the main couple, Zander and Callie, and watching them come to terms with their past together while work through some deep and heart wrenching misunderstandings. I also enjoyed the continuing dynamics between the other Guardians and watching the series’ villain’s scheme and plot their evil. But this second book in the series didn’t seem to flow as well as the first book, Marked. The story line was

There's nothing earth shattering about this series... but it is a very readable paranormal series with a nice balance between the Greek mythology and the HEA of the featured couple in this case Callia the Argolean healer and Zander descendant of the great Achilles. It's sort of in the same league as Gena Showalter's Lords of the Underworld but I actually like this series better. Much more concisely written and without a lot of the waffle and angst. There's even a reason given for the conflict be ...more

The Eternal Guardians are descendants of the seven greatest heroes in Greek history. Hercules. Achilles. Men of legend. And the Guardians have become the stuff of legends themselves. There is unrest in both the mortal realm and their home of Argolea, and only the Guardians stand between a vengeful goddess and the humans and Argoleans they have sworn to protect with their lives.

Zander is descended of Achilles and the oldest of the Guardians. Being the eldest, he's watched friends, brothe

LOVVVIT! It seems now the story gets BETTER! As usual, I enjoyed the combat and some gory scenes. The plot was intriguing. Compared with previous, this book has a couple of steamy scenes which was scorching hot *fanself*. Besides, here's a scene that was heartbreaking I wanted to cry. Talk about intense. Everything was superb intense just prepared emotionally if you are intend to seriously indulge in Entwined.

My one big puzzle is Max was raised and grew up under Atalanta's thumb. Though
I feel all warm and fuzzy inside.....

That was a roller coaster of a book, but had great emotional pull that made you want to not put it down.

I found all the gods more easy to understand being book two, and how my feelings changed about the characthers through the book.

Zander - to me certain aspects of him reminded me of zsadist from bdb - which is no bad thing.
Isadora - she's stronger than others realise, but still lacking personality to me.
Callee - feisty, strong, sexy, won't take being pushed

This is the second book in the Eternal Guardians series. I loved it!

My sister recommended this series to me as she had read them all (that have been released so far) and thought I would enjoy it, and she was right! I downloaded this as an audiobook, as I had previously enjoyed listening to the first book in the series, Marked, in audiobook too. Entwined is again narrated by Elizabeth Wiley. She did another fantastic job in telling the story. Her narration was crystal clear and her interpretation
Zander is an Argonaut, born of the guardian class descended from the greatest heroes in all of ancient Greece. Known as an Eternal Guardian, he must protect the half-breed race Argoleans. Zander is sick of fighting and would love nothing more than to give in. But as the famed descendant of Achilles, he must continue to put up a good fight against the deamons that want to destroy the half-breeds.

Entwined is the second book in the Eternal Guardian series. I have really learned to love this author, and the theme to this series has been such fun to explore. Entwined is the story about Zander and Callia. Entwined is a audiobook, and the narrator is Elizabeth Wiley, who has become a favorite of mine. After having read two other books in the series, I have fallen in love with this author. From the previous book we see Callia, who is the king's healer. Entwined is her story along with Zander. ...more
Gah! I HATE stories where everything could be reconciled with one simple conversation and some real,honest communcation! Still... the story was pretty much un-put-downable, non-stop suspense and action - all rolled into one mythical world!

I can not believe I am going to say this, but so far this series has captured my like very few others... It has not just peaked my attention but it has grabbed it and won’t let go. I find lately that my reading interests have been leaning towards the links between ancient myths and humans, guardians and immortals and always good vs evil. Elisabeth Naughton's Immortal Guardians hold their own in this particular branch of the PNR Genre. Standing right up there with the heavy weights, like Sherrily ...more
Entwined took a few chapters for me to get fully immersed in the world. Maybe it was my lack of empathy for Zander at first, or maybe I just wasn’t in the mood for his self-destructive behavior. I don’t know, but I’m glad I stuck with it.

This book focuses on Zander the Argonaut and Callia the king’s healer. Zander is impulsive, angry, and his “woe is me” attitude reminded me of another character in a series about a band of brothers. Zander is immortal and he challenges his immortality regularly.

Second book in the Eternal Guardians series.

The dying King is still trying to marry off his legitimate daughter Isadora to one of the Guardians. Isadora doesn't want any of them but after Demetrios humiliates her, Zander puts his hand up and offers. She accepts because really there isn't any other choice.

Only trouble is his soul mate, Callie, the King's Healer, is still trying 11 years later to get over him. He has stopped feeling anything and thinks taking one for the team maybe all he can do f

Damn you cliffhangers!!

*sniff* This made me sniffle in a couple of places. This is the story of Callia who is the palace healer and Zander. I enjoyed this way more than the first book. The story flowed better and because there was history between the two, the love aspect didn't feel rushed. Still sappy at a couple of places but the action balanced out the romance. Zander is angry and bitter. He is immortal and decides he needs a purpose in life. He thinks his purpose will be marrying princess Is
I kind of like this one but there is still something that doesn't work for me.
I am used to brotherhoods/warriors/alpha males who are protective of their females, who want to feed them, take care of them etc.
All the males treat the women so callously and that always gives me a pause.
Zander and Callia were alluded in the last book as being true mates, so in this book, we got to find out what drove these lovers apart for the last 10 years.
Again, it seems like everyone is a pawn in both the King's

This one was better than the first one for me, but I have to wonder about a few things. How many times are we going to have the same reveal that impacts people and their lives? If I see this same plot device in another book in this series I will be done, because really there are so many other things you can go to bring people into the story.

I liked Callia from the start. As you get to know her through the story you realize just how bad she got screwed over, and not just by one person, but my man

Loved this story. From the blurb on the back I thought I would be bored. Nope. Couldn't stop reading this yesterday. Barely put it down to eat dinner. :)

There was quite a surprise in this book, a nice surprise.

The Plot:

Descendant of the Greek Gods, the Argonauts are all that stand between the Argoleans and death. Towering males of incredible strength and lethal skill, they bravely risk their lives and traverse the portals of Argolea to Earth in order to combat daemons and the wrath of their leader - one very powerful and pissed off demigoddess known as Atalanta.

Like the first book in the Eternal Guardians series, Entwined is about the Argonauts and other inhabitants of Argolea, as well as residents on Earth, particularly the Misos who are half-human, half-god. This time around, the story focuses on Zander, the only immortal Argonaut, and Callia, the king’s healer. Though it was hinted at in Marked, we finally learn about their past together and how it could ultimately affect the future of everyone in both worlds.

As the Argonaut descended from Achilles, Zander has lived for over 800 years. In all that time, he has exhibited only one weakness: Callia, the love of his life who also betrayed him in the most fundamental of ways. Callia, healer to the King of Argolea, has given up on the life she once dreamed of having with Zander. However, fate has more in store for these seemingly star-crossed lovers because old secrets are about to come to light that may either rekindle the love and passio

I pretty much devoured this one, but that was to be expected due to the pacing and the story-within-story-within-story juiciness of this book. After this book, Elisabeth Naughton all but cemented her ability and talent as a PNR writer -- I mean the woman handles multiple plots as well as Nalini Singh and dare I say it, better than Sherrilyn Kenyon (Nick's whole time traveling thing has me beyond confused. I am well and truly confuzzled at this point).

So why the 4 stars instead of 5?

Admittedly, I was not 100% gung ho about the first book in this series, Marked, but I have learned that it often isn't the book, the series, or the author that is the problem... often it is just that I don't like the first book in any series. So I have a rule that I won't give up until book three. This has saved quite a few series for me - ones where I would have given up if just based on the first book.
