"Home is not a place, it's a feeling"

AAAAWWWW YEAH! The Eternal Guardians series is back with a vengeance (pun intended) with Wicked.

Zagreus. The Prince of Darkness. It pretty much goes without saying that he has done some pretty dark and possibly unforgiveable things over the course of the thousands of years he has been in existence. His mono mia has come into his life and died multiple times during his existence, and with each subsequent death, he has lost a little more of himself and the ligh

First of all, I'd like to say that Elisabeth Naughton is an amazing storyteller. With each book her writing is getting better and better. And I get very excited every time when I hear that she has a new book release. So when I heard about Wicked I naturally had a little dance. Because who doesn't like a tall dark hero, right?
This is 14th book in Eternal Guardians series (feels like an eternity since I came across the first book Marked...but I digress).

When I heard that we will get a book about Z

Review courtesy of Romance Junkies

Zagreus is the son of Hades, the God of the Underworld, and Persephone. His enemies know him as the Prince of Darkness. Zagreus never imagined his soulmate would be born as an Argonaut. Fate intwines their paths once more. Zagreus intends to do right by her in this lifetime, but the obstinate female refuses to cooperate. Can Zagreus keep history from repeating itself? Will Talisa be his salvation? And what new revelations will Zagreus learn about himself?

Wickedly intriguing…

For all you fans of the Eternal Guardian series, the long-awaited next installment is finally here, and boy was it worth the wait. Wicked is everything that I thought it would be, hot, steamy, and downright sinfully wicked. All of our favorite Guardians and their females from stories past make an appearance, but make no mistake, this is Talisa and Zagreus’s story. Talisa, the daughter of the leader of Argonauts, has her own struggles with fitting in, you’ll have read all abou

Can I express just how excited I am to be getting back into the world of the Eternal Guardians with Elisabeth?

Okay, okay wait...before I get into that I need to tell everyone that I received an arc of the book in exchange for an honest and fair review.

Alright, so that is done let's get into this review. *fans self* Lordy.....Zagreus. Goodness, the things I would do for Zagreus. Maybe it's because I've always had a thing for the 'bad boys' because those are usually the boys that have the biggest

Elisabeth Naughton is back with novel #9 in the Eternal Guardians series. She is quite gifted in developing her characters to the fullest and this novel has some great characters.

It centers around Talisa, daughter of the Guardian leader Theron. Talisa is the only female to ever have been born with the markings which indicate it is her destiny to become one of the Eternal Guardians, the warrior protectors of the Realm of Argolea. Though Talisa is now a woman and has trained extensively to be a sk

If you want a story with Greek mythology, heroes, magic, and steamy scenes you are in the right place! Naughton continues her Eternal Guardians series with the latest book, Wicked. Talisa, a woman who is a descendant of Hercules, born with the Argonaut markings, daughter to the leader of the Guardians, just wants to fit in and be accepted within the Argonauts but receives push back from her family. Well...who better to shake up her world than one of the big bads himself, Zagreus, Son of Hades, P ...more

I hadn’t read anything from Elisabeth Naughton in a long while, so I was excited to get an opportunity to read a new book by her. I thought I’ve read this series before, but if I did, it was only a few books, because I didn’t recognize the characters that popped up, although I kind of remembered the overarching theme.
That said, I absolutely LOVED this book. It’s the first book I’ve read in a long time that had me skipping sleep and sneak reading at work. I loved both Zagreus and Talisa from sta

The eagerly awaited and greatly anticipated story of Zagreus is here! Now we have known him for a long time as a bad dude with little redeeming qualities. So I was more than surprised when I began to fall in love with the son of Hades.

He’s had a bad time of it for a very long time (don’t think years but centuries, always searching for his one true love who gets reincarnated every so often but she always dies. The last time he’d seen her was 500 years ago and his situation was getting dire. But j

Wicked by Elisabeth Naughton it's book 9 of her Eternal Guardians series. This book features Talisa, daughter of Theron, head of the Argonauts and Zagreus, son of Hades. What could possibly to wrong when the only female to be born an Argonaut and the son of the Underworld collide? Throw in Pandora and her box and the world could be changed forever. Mrs Naughton's understanding and use of Greek mythology is amazing. Her ability to take something ancient and turn it into a new twist on reality is ...more

It's been a while since I was in the Eternal Guardians world. I like the use of Greek mythology woven into the stories.
I always like to see strong female characters who can kick butt literally. Talisa certainly meets that criteria.
Zagreus doesn't start out very likeable, kidnapping our heroine and being rather domineering he does manage to redeem himself as the book goes on.
These two are from very different worlds, it seems unlikely that they will be able to achieve a HEA, won't give any spoil

This is book 9 in the Eternal Guardians series and it features Zagreus and Talisa. Their past goes through many soul reincarnations. He’s the prince of darkness and she is his light. There are so many threads weaving in and out of the story but it’s not hard to keep track of. There are quite a few plot twists but under it all is a truly beautiful love story. 

This story line is amazing, as are the characters. I love that we got to see so many Argonauts and their partners. Already looking forward

This is the latest installment in the Eternal Guardians series and it certainly does not disappoint! It was certainly well worth the wait, and has further developed the storyline to include new developments, leaving the reader on the edge of their seat. Not wanting to give away any spoilers, all I can say is that this installment explores the story of Zagreb’s, the prince of darkness, and the unlikely turn his story takes with his soulmate. This was definitely a page turner!

Talisa is a strong stubborn woman. She doesn’t feel she fits in any where. She is looking for something but she doesn’t know it. Zagreus is one strong alpha man. He is searching for his mono mia. Has been for a long time. When they find each other the connection is instant. They both have a lot to work through. Loved they way Talisa has no filter and say what she is thinking. Love that she was able to make Zagreus see things from her prospective. Love this series a must read.

I felt this was a 3 star read, because my views are changing. I felt Ziggy was a little too simple. He just wasn't complicated enough. He wasn't dark enough at the beginning of the read.
Ten years ago, I might have rated it 4 stars.
Also, I still look forward to read more in this series.
I'm still waiting on Phineas' story.

Wicked is the 9th book in Elisabeth Naughton’s Eternal Guardians series and is another winner! I enjoyed watching Zagreus and Talisa’s relationship develop. The story was very engaging and kept me turning each page to the very last. I was so excited to get back to this series. I highly recommend this book and the entire series. You will not be disappointed.

YES....the Argonauts are back. This story was so worth the wait. So much was unlocked in this story. Talisa & Zagreus--An amazingly strong, fierce female is about to go toe to toe with the Prince of Darkness. YES!!!!!! Talk about hotter than hell lol. The alignment of the Argonauts and their power is definitely tipping the scales. I cannot wait for the next in this series. It was definately worthy of an all night read.

Wicked is everything I thought it would be and then some. Greek mythology, heroes and villains, light versus darkness. Add Ms. Naughton’s amazing writing and you’ve got Wicked. The story of Talisa, Descendent of the Hercules, one of two females ever marked as a Argonaut and gifted with the strength of heroes. Zagreus, Son of Hades and said to be cruel and sadistic. A chance encounter of the two which causes worlds to collide in a fight of light versus darkness, sparks to ignite and a race to sav ...more
