Book 3 in the Kings of the Blood series. The books can be read as stand-alone stories, but it is advisable to read them in order to get the most enjoyment from the series.

A scream in the night. A panicked call for help. There’s no time to think. The rules be damned.

A fate worse than death. Buried alive…lost…alone… A centuries old secret her only hope. May the gods be on

A little vengeance plot cooked up by the god of war, Ares, leads to Juliette detailing her surprising past. Achille's impatient, yet utterly charming self had already won me over in previous books, and it was nice to see his character stay consistent here. Having all the Kings jump into action to help one of their own achieve his HEA was just icing on the cake!

I really enjoyed Achilles and Juliette's story! There's more action and conversation happening and I liked the story flow a lot better t

Reading the Kings of the Blood box set which includes books one through three is a fascinating and wonderfully thrilling experience.
First, this is my first time reading any of the Kings of the Blood books and I was completely fascinated with the world and Julia Mills’ intriguing concept of vampires but not yet really vampires, which I finally decided are immortal warriors with vampire like qualities, anyway the whole working for the gods notion worked really well too and made these delightful c

If you're looking for something deliciously dufferent, look no more, the Kings are here! In fact Achilles is the third King so far. Each story is a stand alone but the first two Kings are truly worth meeting.... Here's the skinny on on Achilles. The Kings are a kind of vampire. Yes, they are immortal and need blood to live, but just a very small amount and not that often. The God's are responisble for their existence which includes finding their mate before their third millennia or they will die ...more

This book covers the story of how the King Achilles and his soul-mate Juliette join with the rest of the kings to thwart the vindictive God Ares and bond so they can both live in eternal happiness.

I loved this story and the ending of it. There were plenty of twists and turns, but at the end of the day the kings know they can rely on each other and their mates to be a united family. I loved the way Achilles (Lee) was his normal alpha male self, and that his mate was not a weak willed woman and w

Demi-god destined to be kinged

The third book in the series mixes more Greek mythology than the others in the series. In fact, it is the most interesting part of the story for me. Unfortunately, the author falls short. The grand confrontation feels like a fumble. This story does have the seven kings together to join forces against the threat to their brother, Archilles.

Once again a totally different direction in this series.
This one is full of action but just missed being great for me. I found Lee and Juliette interesting but the story just a bit too far fetched for my enjoyment.
Not a big fan of Gods using people as pawns and playthings. Was happy they outsmarted Ares.

Although I throughly enjoyed Victor and Romans stories, I absolutely fell in love with Lee, I had a feeling his story would be awesome and so it was. I look forward to the next one!

A glorious read, keeps you holding on for one more page, right to the end.
I was looking forward to Achilles story and wasn't disappointed at all.
Now to read about Bain, the tidbit at the end of this book has me excited.

Julia MillsI have enjoyed the books thus far in this series and Achilles well let me say the author gave us so much more in his story.

We get Achilles aka Lee's story and how and when he finds his mate but what he doesn't understand is his mate Juliette some how can mind speak with him and they haven't even touched yet. Well

Oh wow - just wow.
Achilles is an awesome blood king. Loyal, fun and dedicated to his mate.
And no matter what our Lee (Achilles) goes with the flow and always has a plan - the plan might get everyone and their horse into trouble - but it is still a plan of action - right?
I just love the way Julia has me right on the edge with Lee and Juliette!
Not that Lee's mate doesnt come with her own surprises, and man does Lee just hit the jackpot. No - you got to read all about these little jewels and lemm

Sweet and interesting! I definitely recommend reading the first 2 books before reading this one because although it is about a different couple then the other 2 books, there are connecting characters and connecting events, which means there are some spoilers for the previous books in this book. Achilles is part of a group of immortals, who do drink blood, but they aren't called vampires, they are called Kings, and the Gods are responsible for their existence. Each of these Kings needs to find hi ...more

Achilles: Soul of Her King is the third installment of Kings of the Blood series and it's another good one from Julia Mills. She is truly on a good roll with this series. This is the story of Achilles and Juliette. Lee (Achilles) has been watching over Juliette since the day she was born waiting for her to come to him. Juliette has know about Lee and his brethren since her first birth. You see, she is the daughter of Greek Goddess Hebe and a mortal. When she was but a year old, her uncle Ares, t ...more

This was a fast paced 3rd Kings of the Blood series. Juliette knows about The Kings of Blood already. She comes from Gods and Goddesses. She’s sweet and determined to make it through and get her man! Achilles has knows where Juliette has been since she was born. He’s been stalkerish ever since. Their bond forms so quickly, more so than the others that its making everyone scratch their heads!

Achilles: Soul of Her King by Julia Mills.
4 out of 5 stars.
Achilles has found the woman who is to be "The Keeper of His Heart" and has already inexplicably established a connection with her. He's tracked her down and kept tabs on her to make sure she is alright until the time that she comes to him. He knows she's a bit of an adventurer but what he wasn't expecting was for her to mentally call him for help when the archeological dig she's on has a cave-in and the tunnel collapses on top of her.
Teresa Holleran
I loved this book!! I loved the first two int he series as well, but I think Achilles is my favorite King so far. Julia has a way of drawing you into her worlds and making them seem so real and it is easy to get lost in them.

Achilles has known about his mate since the day she was born, what he doesn't know is she has known about him even longer, and she know what and who he is. When she calls to him through their bond, he doesn't think about how she can do it, only that she needs him! He drops

This is the third book in the Kings of the Blood series. They are stand alones, so you don’t have to read them in order. I recommend that you do read them all. It’s a great series. Just like in the previous books, we get how and why Achilles was made a King.

They are like vampires in that they have to have blood. But it’s not often. And it’s never more than they need.

They are protectors.

Achilles, or Lee, is the Archer.

Juliette is his mate. She is different though. I’m not going to go into details

As a advert reader I am enjoying the, 'King of Blood series'. Different than other fantasy novels as far as finding their mates. But, Julia Mills storytelling is on the money. Where she draws the readers in at the prologue with a synapses of each blood king previous lives and than bring you to the present day. I find this novel to be very mild storyline not a lot of drama or build up of emotional chapters. The chapter's have a tendency to plot along like a slow moving horse. Knowing the

I am a HUGE fan of Julia Mills. I have read everything she's written and was privileged to have received an ARC of Achilles: Soul of her King in exchange for an honest review. I don't usually wax effusive, but I can say with no equivocation that this is her best work so far. I can just tell she threw herself into this work, body, mind and soul. The depth of emotion just in the prologue is worth the price of this book. While it can be read as a standalone, the experience will be so much more mean ...more

Juliette is a woman with a dark past who is waiting for her destined mate but only when the time is right can they make contact. Achilles has waited so long for his mate but now things get complicated because of her dark past but with fate and Gods on their side they might just get together.

I am voluntarily leaving my honest review of this book. This is book 3 of Kings of the Blood series by the author.

A cursed demigod destined to be with a king of the gods...I love the brilliance! These characters are so amazing! The storyline easily captured my attention and kept me enraptured ! I could easily feel the brotherhood and loyalty between the kings. Juliette and Achilles could not have been paired any more perfectly! Love this book and recommend it highly! This voluntary review is based against an advance copy.

Love the Kings

Ms Mills has a knack for making good reading. The Kings of Blood are really interesting guys...and now they are finding their mates, the keeper of their souls. I love the history that's brought into the story, and the love they have for each other. This along with the other stories are a must read...while I believe they can be read as a stand alone I suggest starting with the first one. Great characters and great story line.

The god Aries is due some payback in this latest story in the series. After living and dying for centuries Juliette finally has a chance to be with Lee and because of Aries maneuvers that almost doesn't happen. Good thing help comes.
