To save his twin, he bargains with a goddess but while she may enslave him, she can never own his heart in this fascinating paranormal romance.

There is never a dull moment in this fast paced and smooth flowing story filled with action, suspense and romance. Reign captures the heart from the very beginning (if you read the first book then he probably caught some of it then) and when he meets Alexis, sparks fly in every direction as they fight their attraction and seem to be on opposite sides.

This is the second in the Descendants of Ra series. I really enjoyed the first, Eternity. 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. T
What I loved about the first book was the love between Roman and Stella. Through their many lives they always had a connection and some kind of attraction to each other. Although living in a strange world and circumstances their love always felt real. This made me curious for more.

Roman and Stella have a small role in the sequel, but it is mainly about Roman's brother Reign and Alexis. For many years Reign was a prisoner of The Egyptian Goddess of the Dead, Nephythys, but when he is sent to the

First, I would like to thank the author Tmonique Stephens for giving me this book for an honest review. As with the first book, I loved it, I think this story was even better. The men of Ra are tortured souls. I love the mythology that is mixed into the story. The character development is again very well done. Alexia is strong with her own messed up background who has trust issues (I can totally relate with the trust issues), Reign is another tortured soul who finds his soul mate, who has been a ...more

Everlasting entwines Egyptian mythology with modern times. Tmonique definitely created an enticing story of everlasting love and the trials of attaining this true happiness. The story follows the main characters Reign Nicolis and Alexis Lever. Reign is enslaved by the Goddess of the Dead and wishes to break free from her control in order to be with Alexis. This sweet love story was wonderful to read and I cannot wait to read more from this amazing author! I would also like to thank Tmonique for ...more

Exciting! Keeps you on edge throughout.

This is the second book in Descendants of Ra about Reign, The twin brother of Roman, from the first book and it was just as exciting and kept me on edge even more than the first. I loved both Reign and Alexis and thought they were a perfect match. The villains were even a bigger challenge and had me wondering how they would be defeated. This series has definitely won me over and I plan on purchasing the next installment to feed my new addiction.

I like the unique use of the Egyptian Pantheon. Most of the characters return from the first book while new characters are introduced. Reign is still a mystery to me, though I understand him a little better now. Alexis seems to be just what he needs, but he is still fighting it, all to protect her. I liked Alexis, mostly. I wanted her to come to the place where pleasing people didn't matter anymore. There is still time for her to grow in that area in the next book.

There were several places that

This is my 1st read and review for this author and it’s such a fantastic start in getting to know her stories. This is the story of Reign and Alexis, Alexis is a detective she goes to a bar to relax and maybe pick up a guy for the night but then chaos ensues. Alexis arrests the guy and he’s as big as a tank and she is attracted to him but he’s a criminal. Reign has made a deal with a goddess to protect his brother Roman so he is sent to this world to kill one of her sons who is a monster. There ...more

Enslaved by a goddess and forced to do her bidding to insure his brother's well being, Reign is sent back to the human world when an evil entity is hunting his brother. But instead of tracking the monster, he gets sidetracked and enamored by police detective Alexis Lever whom he has an unwavering obsession to protect. Making Alexis his priority only leads to chaos amid the hunt for the killer entity and the burning enmity and hate his brother Roman has for him. It is best, if you haven't already ...more

I am so glad I was able to read this entire series!
Her writing draws you in and keeps you involved throughout the whole of each story.
I found myself in love with not only the characters, but also the world she creates.
You truly feel as though you are living among the characters.
Great character development, steamy sex scenes and enough of the everyday grind to really be able to sink into each and every book.

This is book two in the Descendants of Ra series and it is just as good as the first book. I am so loving the style of writing of this auther. This is a very fast paced book and it flows really well. Just like the first there is action, suspense and it’s a thrilling read. The passion between these two is so good and the sparks fly no matter how hard they try to fight them. Can’t wait for the the nest book.

At first I was a bit lost because I jumped right into book two without reading book one. Once the story got going I was okay, but I do plan on reading the first book. This book is full of action, suspense, well developed characters and a passionate romance. Loved Alexis and Reign together. I am looking forward to reading the first book and the rest of the series.

When I read the first book in this series, Eternity, I compared it to riding a roller coaster blindfolded because of its intensity, and Everlasting is just the same. Immediately I was immersed back into this creative, imaginative realm of vengeful ancient Egyptian gods wreaking havoc in the human world. I actually went back and reviewed Eternity because there are so many characters and story threads that have been introduced, I wanted to make sure I remembered the crux of the ov

This is the second book in this series and if you love Egyptian mythology but want it brought bang up to date then these books are for you. Add a tortured hero at the not too tender mercies of a goddess and a rising army and of course more than a smattering of romance and this book is a delight to read. It's a rare thing to find such a unique concept but it works very well here in the complicated and brutal world of the Gods. These Egyptian Gods are many things but benevolent is certainly not a

Trying to solve a case that is shrouded in mystery and revloves around things she didn't know existed just might be the end of her life as she

This is Book 2 of the Descendants of Ra series. This book follows Reign, brother to Roman, and Alexis the detective from Stella's case. There is lots of intricately weaved plot pulling these characters in with the Egyptians. There is unfortunately not near the pull to this couple as there was for Roman and Stella so I wasn't as invested in them as I felt I should be. There will definitely have to be one if not two more books because there is lots left unresolved and new issues brought to light t ...more

I couldn't stop reading... literally. I had to put my life on hold to see what happened next.
This is one of the best books I have read in years. How the author blends suspense and romance with Egyptian gods and make a modern thriller that is fast paced and laced with twists, is pure magic. Read it. You will be hooked. This is best seller quality.

If you haven't read the first in the series, you really don't need to. Ms Stephens worked magic on that one too, but this is my favorite to date.
