I was so glad to get Helena’s story. She was the sweetest bitchy gatekeeper ever. Helena, who I had grown to really enjoy over the first two books is plagued by sadness and regret due to her companions death in Hades. We get to see Lena find peace with what happened, love for her mate, and his sister and renewed faith in the Great One in this book. Slade, is Helena’s mate…..he is also an Oracle and for awhile a demon flegding. Ms Monroe once again wove the story wonderfully, tying up questions f ...more

I love this series so of course when the author puts out a new book belonging in it I have to read it and I wasn't disappointed although I loved it Theo's book was still my favorite. Len that girl knows how to hold a grudge not that I blame her, "you poisoned me, Slade!" - her jaw tightened - "effing betrayed me. That's not something I can get over with a snap of my fingers." I loved how Slade knew some of Lena's behaviors, "Addies touched Halena's fingers around his wrist, and they tig ...more

5 stars!

Having lived for hundreds of years…easy – falling in love and being vulnerable, that is truly terrifying to Gate Keeper (or demon hunter) Halena Girard! After her sister or Companion as she was called is killed in the line of duty, protecting her, Halena has had a very hard time letting anyone in. But when a smooth talking Slade Bennet comes walking to up to her at a local bar with ulterior motives of

I am a big fan of this series. I loved Theo and Sadie's story. I loved Justin and Yvonne's story. Both fantastic. But I have to say, Halena and Slade's story is my favorite. After meeting the fiery Frenchwoman in the previous books and knowing she had some major walls built up around her heart and her life, I couldn't wait to get the rest of her story and see her fall in love. And what an incredible love story it was! I loved it!

Halena and Slade's story took me on quite the whirlwind experience.

A wonderful addition to the series, Claimed by Light was a lovely New Adult paranormal read. With romance, danger, and a few twists, this book was great and I really liked it.

Halena was a tough heroine. She could take down several demons and not even break a sweat. Though, to be honest, she came off as cold at first. She was determined to keep people at a distance and that tended to make her seem mean. But, as the book went on, she opened up and I started to like her more and more. She was very

I gave it 3/5 stars

I was not aware that CLAIMED BY LIGHT was part of a series before I started reading it. There were a few parts where I felt like I was missing something that might have happened, but I still enjoyed following the story and It was easy to get past those instances.

I enjoyed both Halena and Slade. Watching their relationship grow was enjoyable. Circumstances make it a bit hostile at times and they really had to work at some things despite their attraction and pull to each other.

Reviewed for Confessions From Romaholics

Bound of Hades trilogy is one of those series that stood out to me from Entangled Embrace line because it tackled a genre that has been overlooked with new adult in my opinion. Don’t get me wrong, there have been books in this genre written before new adult existed that fit the mould. However since the category became a thing, there haven’t that been many paranormal books that have stood out to me that I loved and wanted more from. I had high expectations

This is book 3 in the Forged By Fate Trilogy, and after meeting Helena in the first two books, I was eager to see what Ms Monroe had in store for her, She is the snarky French Gate Keeper who is hell bent on staying unattached, she keeps her heart guarded after loosing her Companion (her sister for want of another description) 4 centuries ago.

Why I Picked It Up

I really had enjoyed the first two novels in the series and I was interested to see how the series came to a conclusion.


Claimed by Light was Halena’s story. The French Guardian who didn’t believe in Mates. So of course she is shaken when she feels an instant connection to Slade, who has just sold his soul to demons and is on the fast-track to becoming one himself. This novel was definitely interesting. We get to the conclusion of the Guardian’s battle against the demons and
I received an ARC through NetGalley.

I didn't even realize it until the end, but Claimed by Light is the final book in this series. This time the focus is on Halena, who has been very kick ass and cynical, refusing to get close to anyone after losing her companion. And finding her mate is the last thing she wants, especially when it happens to be Slade, the young man who she was hoping to hook up with, but instead wound up drugged and at the mercy of a demon. Not the best way to start a relations

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This book is the third (and final?) book of the series. After meeting Halena and seeing all the signs (making fun of the mated couples, stressing how much she did not want a mate, etc.), I knew this one was coming. We get to watch the most unlikely of candidates break through her tough as nails exterior to find the true Halena.

Slade is the typical overprotective brother, with a twist. His gift of visions lets him truly see when his

Another great read. It a paranormal fiction packed with action and thrill. I loved everything about this book, plot is great and well executed. all the characters are also well developed and overall the book is a five star read.

I am a paranormal junkie. So I was pretty excited to read this title. While I liked it, i did not fall in love. It was a cool read, with an interesting twist on the battle between angels/Shomeri and demons. I think I needed more world building. I did not fully understand the world, and the thrill of reading paranormals for me is that I get this edgy, beautiful and scary world to immerse myself into. I want to be intrigued and fear for the characters in equal parts. I did not get that with this b ...more

Le Sigh! I was so excited for Helena's story, and man Reese didn't disappoint. Slide is so swoon worthy and pretty awesome, so selfless and caring for others. I loved the addition of the whole family too - that we have grown to love through book 1 and 2. It was highly fitting that Theo, Sadie, Justin and Yvonne help Helena as she helped then in the last. I love first Zander and really hope to read his story soon. The only person I would have liked to see in this book is Dasha but there is a smal ...more

What a great cast of characters!

Slade meets Halena in a bar and makes his move. Back in his room things move quickly until Slade poisons Halena. He has no choice if he is to save his sister.
We learn he is her ahavah...her destined one. The story moves quickly without a dull moment. The gatekeepers are a family within themselves with str
