Self-preservation, above all. That’s the credo by which guardian Jonathan Draper justifies his existence. Or at least it was until he found Hope Gentry. Backed by the powers of his beloved Hope and his most loyal guardian Raleigh Peyton, Jonathan should have enough influence to save his sector from destruction. But Buffalo is plagued by guardian unrest and increasing threats from the city’s most evil entities, and Jonathan is stripped of all authority.
Never harm a soul. That’s the credo by which the members of the demon alliance live. Micah Condie has trouble fitting in, and it doesn’t help that he has enough power to set anyone he touches on fire. He can’t return home until he cancels out the debt he owes the most powerful immortals. But when he uncovers an eighteen-year old secret that rocks the foundation of his existence, Micah has no choice but to go back home. Now not only must he placate the immortals, but he must face an uncertain future with his girlfriend Hope Gentry, reconcile with the family he abandoned, and finally settle the score with Jonathan Draper.
Someone is masterminding a plot to destroy all of the guardians and human souls in existence. Only if Jonathan and his most unlikely ally, Micah, can join forces will they be able to save them.
The fate of all depends on the will of one: THE ETERNAL.
Helen Boswell loved to get lost in the pages of a story from the time she could sound out the words. Originally from upstate New York, Helen spent much of her early adult life tromping around Buffalo, NYC, Toronto, and Las Vegas, those cities now serving as inspiration for the dark and gritty urban backdrops of her stories. An author of both urban fantasy and contemporary romance, Helen loves to read and write characters that come to life with their beauty, flaws, and all.
Helen dedicates her time to raising her family of two boys, teaching college students, and of course, writing.
Have you ever read a book that just left you speechless for a few days? If you have, than you know how I feel right now. Mythology: The Eternal left a big hole in my heart, I do not mean that in a bad way, it’s just….I….didn’t….want….this….series….to… end…..
When I read Mythology (Which is the first book), I fell in love immediately with Micah, Hope and eventually Jonathan ;) The story just captures you from the very beginning. If you have read the first two books, than you know the struggle that Hope, Micah and Jonathan go through, and how each of their lives have taken a drastic turn, some for the better, some for the worse.
This book gave me all the feels, one minute I was laughing, next crying, screaming “Noooooooooooooooooo”, happy, and crying again. If you haven’t read the Mythology, why not? Don’t you like HOT demon or angel guys? Believe me you will SWOON big time.
As much as I love this trilogy, and I do. I have to give a major shout out to the author, my dear friend, Helen Boswell!!!!!! She is one of the most amazing woman that I have ever known. If you had the chance to talk to her on Twitter, or even met her in person (Like I did last year in Seattle), than you know what I am talking about. I am so so so so so so proud of you, Helen!!!!! xoxoxo
A wonderful ending to this trilogy. We follow Micah and Jonathan's stories as they face new threats from the demons and angels. They also need to deal with their own inner battles before coming together for a grand finale. I won't add any spoilers but be prepared for late nights and chewed finger nails.

When I read the first book of this series, I really liked it. But as I continued reading the rest of the books in this series, I found myself falling in love with them. This series has taken a place on my all-time favourite series list and I'm very sad it's over.
This book kicked ass, and I mean serious ass. From the first chapter, and the action was in full swing. Told from the alternating POVs of Jonathan and Micah, The Eternal had a lot to tell in each chapter. I'm a huge Jonathan fan, been in love with him since the first book, and I always wanted to know more about him, like everything really, and in this book, I finally got my wish. There was so much about Jonathan that was revealed in this book, and it left me gaping at the pages in surprise. I loved everything about him, and I found my heart aching for him every time he had a flashback. Being in his head and seeing the how and why behind everything in his life was great and I loved every second of it. He still is my fave guy, though Micah came a close second.
In the first book, I didn't like Micah much. I wasn't his biggest fan, but in the second book he redeemed himself and in this book, he made me fall in love with him. Micah went through a lot in his life, and as this series went on, the development and change to his character was noticeable. I loved seeing him grow up and mature and take charge of himself and accept life as it was. He really grew in this book, and seeing him become a man and a leader really did it for me. I found myself cheering him on even as I bit my nails at all the things he went through.
I love the plot of this series. It's always been interesting and it keeps getting better and better with every chapter and book. From the start of this book, I was hooked and pulled back into the word of Mythology, with Guardians and Demons and everything in between. In this book, the action was happening on two different fields, and I loved seeing it coming all together to one huge plot twist that had me on the edge of my seat, baiting my nails and close to finding a corner to rock in.
As much as I loved the ending of this series, I have to say, I'm sad to say goodbye to it and the characters I've come to love so much. I think a reread is in order soon.
For anyone looking for a series that will have you at the edge of your seat, close to loosing your mind, this is for you.
The finale of the Mythology series does not disappoint in any way, shape, or form. I felt that Helen Boswell made a brave step in that a lot of this book is from the point of view of Jonathan, instead of just Hope and Micah like usual. This means that you definitely see things differently and find out reasons for the way that he has acted and the things he has done.
With plot twists and turns aplenty, this is one nail-biting climax that will keep you on the edge of your seat as you turn from page to page, afraid to put it down in case something happens whilst you're away!
Excellently written, and smoothly paced as per the author's style, this made for a thrilling climax to the series and I have no hesitation in highly recommending this series.

I didn't think it was possible for a character in this series to take over the way I thought Micah was crafted, but I was wrong. Jonathan is a rich, deep character who has lived long enough to have seen everything, and yet, he hasn't. His seemingly calm manner conceals a hidden heartbreak, and the transitions between time periods, between who Jonathan was and who he has to still become, are crafted expertly by Boswell. Stunning culmination to a fantastic trilogy.
